I stopped to think and forgot to start again

Proud of myself, I think

Just sent an email to the leadership group in our BNI requesting they lay a cease and desist order on one of our highly contributing members who keeps sending out jesus notes of one type or another.  I was just annoyed for the past couple of months but three days ago he forwarded a link from AFA who actively attacks gays and is doing a support Chick Fil a  (http://www.afa.net/) 'buy' cott this week.  I was truly offended and really pissed off that he was using the email contacts that I helped him get through our networking group to forward an agenda that violated everything (and everyone) I hold dear.  

I decided against personal confrontation but thought just blocking his email was not enough.  So I took it to the leadership team requesting that they shut him down.  I would have just let it go a while back.  But I have acquired a daughter in the past year and she is gay and I will defend my family.

The matter was turned over to the executive team in our group who are in a position to handle it with less emotion than I.  However it will be handled one way or another.  I put up with a lot of right wing christian crap in this community but even in the very public position I frequently find myself I've got limits.  And standards.

On the other hand, this is not going on facebook.  I'm not stupid!
