Dan Schatz An Open Letter to Michelle Shocked (151* d) RE: An Open Letter to Michelle Shocked 21 Mar 13


As I said, I remain concerned. She sounds like someone trying to talk about her faith, but very uncomfortable with herself. It is possible to reconcile being "the world's biggest homophobe" (which she has in the past claimed to be) with supporting legal rights for lgbt people. And it's possible she doesn't really know quite how she feels. But the questions I raised in my letter about her groundedness, and the extremes she seems to go to to define herself against what other people perceive her to be, seem to hold.

So I'm glad to believe she meant what she says she did. But I'm not so sure she knows what she really feels, or what to do with it if she does.

Dan
