In my recent post about the unfortunate turn of events surrounding Amy Contrada's daughter, Claudia, I got a fairly humorous reply in the thread. Apparently, we aren't doing enough to make friends with MassResistance. Well, I'm going to do something to change that!
For readers unaware, Contrada's daughter came out as lesbian right before she helped her school open the play "the Laramie Project," which deals with the aftermath of Matthew Shepard's murder in the local community. Unfortunately, it caused a brouhaha that made Amy Contrada's Crazy Person button go off, so she pulled her daughter from the school, posted private pictures and conversations of her daughter's, invaded her daughter's Facebook and unfortunately tried to play her off as a special needs child who was incapable, at the age of 17, to make rational decisions regarding her sexuality. (I knew I was gay since I was around 10-12, so it isn't exactly a stretch to take Claudia's word for it at the age of 17.)
While I'm not buying Amy Contrada's rational - and think it's rather humorous that Mr. Anonymous thinks we should all just try to get along (and would trust Amy Contrada with anything she said) - I decided to bite. I'll go for it.
So, Amy Contrada, come on down! You're more than welcome to take a visit to the beautiful Swampscott; I'll make you a home-cooked meal. I make a great stuffed chicken, filled with prosciutto, basil and cheese, or we could bake a spiral, glazed ham. In gentle conversation, we can figure out just why you believe I belong in hell and why I can't understand how you could be so cruel to your own daughter. Maybe that'll appease the Anonymous posters out there? So, Ms. Contrada, send me an email. Bring a bottle of wine or a dessert and we'll have a fun night out on me!
