However, I apparently offended a friend of mine. She e-mailed me and asked if she could use the picture in a blog post, I said yes, knowing exactly what it was for. I responded to the blog with exactly how I felt. If she had had a problem with me, she should have come to me in private. I am more than willing to remove the picture (which I did), but I don't appreciate being called out like I was. It hurt my feelings, and what's worse -- she deleted me as a friend. She was someone I thought I was very close too, someone I've spent a lot of time with. It just goes to show you... you think you know somebody.
I've talked with some people about this and I can see from her side, but I don't know if she sees mine. I don't know much about any other religions, yes that is my fault as I have chosen NOT to educate myself on them, but to be called intolerant really hurt my feelings. I don't generally discuss religion for this reason. I am a Mormon. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. People make fun of me all the time, my reaction is to try to educate them as best I can.
I apologize if my posting this picture offended you. It was not my intent, but I will not apologize for having a human reaction to something that I think is funny.
