My Racist Father... Now An Obama Supporter (UPDATE)
Several months ago, I posted a story on here on how my father and I were no longer speaking due to some extremely racist comments he had made during a political discussion.
That was about two weeks before Easter. The last thing he said to me, after I told him off, was that he "had a lot to think about."
I called him several times, but got no response, and thought he had officially "disowned" me. I was about to give up.
Well, here it is July 10th and I am happy to say that he FINALLY called me.
While there was definitely some tension left over, he did make a point to inform me that he will be voting for Obama this fall. I was so taken back, I didn't know what to say. I was just overwhelmed that he had changed his mind.
Those of you who remember the original post about this know how taken aback I was when he made the comments. But that is not the point, so I won't delve into the details again.
I just wanted to say that we got one more! And if my father can change his mind, anyone can.
I also wanted to thank all of you for the kind words, thoughts, and prayers you sent my way. It was very much appreciated, and I would like to think that the positive vibes I got from you all helped in some way.
One bong for a weak conversion. It'd get 1 1/2 but didn't start with "So..."

Racists for Obama,think they'll run with that idea tommarrow?The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”

Old man should've stayed a racist. Now he's a closet bigot and a liberal moron. HMMM fits right in with the Democratic Party.
