Question No. 5: I believe we have seen a coarseness enter our society, as well as a decline in the stability and well-being of Hoosier families. I am concerned, do you share this concern? If so, are there solutions, legislative or non-legislative, that should be considered?
After I got over my initial shock, I responded:
I do not know what you mean by "coarseness". I do feel that as Indiana citizens, we should embrace ALL families. I don't believe that family structure should be legislated by politicians. That is a personal matter and government has no right to interfere.
At the end, Ms. Noe invited comments. Of course I couldn't let an opportunity go by:
I find Question No. 5 offensive. As I said, government has no business interfering in family structure and make-up. Instead of skirting the issue, please clarify what you mean by "coarseness".
Maybe I shouldn't be surprised. But I suppose I am naive enough to think that maybe one day people will GET IT and stop putting us into two different camps. My family is coarse? How dare they!!!! I invite Cindy Noe to behave like a man (I mean lady) and say exactly what she means! Maybe we need some sort of protest regarding this so-called "poll". Can't write anymore - too angry!
