For those of you who followed this post and this post, this email is the follow-up I had been waiting for. And unless I run across any other intolerant asswipes, this will be the last post on this subject for now.
Here's the email from the "leader" of the home school group:
Dear Robin, I see that you have unsubscribed from ****. I just wanted to take the time to let you know that I really enjoyed seeing you at the park. Also, thank you so much for helping with the Presidential Challenge. I am sorry if **** didn't meet your expectations. Please feel free to provide any feedback to me so that we can improve things for others. This past year had been a crazy year for me. However, my heart is still tugged toward helping people with their home school journey. Also, I truly hope that you were treated kindly. Again, please let me know if you weren't. Your feedback could help for the future. Thank you. :) Have a wonderful day and be blessed!
Hi *******, The boys and I enjoyed **** very much. Unfortunately, it was an email that made this decision very easy for me. It was from ***** and was in regards to your email about the free products from McDonalds. I realize this is a Christian home school group and that some folks are going to be more conservative in their views than others. However, I was under the impression that this group was also inclusive. While her comment did not directly impact me or my relationships, I prefer to shelter my boys from that kind of thinking for as long as possible. And really, who knows if what she said caused any of the other members personal grief. I thought it was totally ignorant on her part and I feel a general message to the group on your part regarding this should have been made. Something about tolerance for others, etc etc. So thank you for putting together what I think is a terrific opportunity for home schoolers in our area. It just wasn't a terrific fit for our family. Sincerely, Me
And then she wrote back:
Blah blah blah
Ummm. Alrighty then. On with life now.
