Notes From Underfoot: Rantings of Pab Sungenis
Posted by pabsungenis in General Discussion
Wed Sep 21st 2011, 08:10 PM
Yesterday and today I've complained about the addition of James Byrd Jr.'s name to Matthew's Law in the discussion of Obama's LGBT*.* record.

My opinions about that action, its appropriateness, and the motivations behind it still stand.

However, at the time I made those statements I was unaware that Lawrence Russell Brewer was scheduled to be executed tonight, and the fact that the feelings of some people with an interest would be on edge because of that.

My timing was unintentional, and could have been much better.

If anyone was offended by my statements being made so close to the execution, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. It was not my intention to grave dance, nor to belittle tonight's action in Texas for those who see it as justice or believe it justified.

I very rarely apologize for offending people, because I believe that most people that I set out to offend more than have it coming, but this was not one of those cases and thus I once again apologize.
