The discussion at the Republic of Austin Facebook page over the link to my last post went in a direction quite different from where I thought it might go. It went something like this:
So, in the interests of making things clear: Yes, I like Sarah Palin. Yes, I've read A Handmaid's Tale. I didn't care for it. And the Republic of Gilead, as portrayed by Margaret Atwood, in no way represents either my Christianity or, from what I have seen, the views of Governor Palin.
What, did you expect me to sit back and tacitly accept your ideas of what it must be like to be a conservative in deep blue Austin? Try asking me next time instead of stereotyping.
