Please tell me that the rest of "Christendom" doesn't feel this way. I was directed to a new website this morning: www.pray4trig.com It's a website designed to organize a national day of prayer on Trig Palin's birthday next year. "Congregations across the globe will join in asking God to make Trig whole....and for healing Trig of his affliction."
Ugh. Really?!? I cannot begin to express how appalling this is to me. I do believe that it is well intended, albeit misguided, but to really get to the heart/mind behind it, you must read the comments on the welcome post. The creator of the site is actually indignant that those of us with Ds would want our children to remain as they are...as they were created to be.
I'm sure I'll revisit this at some point, but I cannot shake the sick feeling her comments, and the attitudes behind them, have left me with this morning.
