Hello, Stephen. I have been reading your blog for a nice long while now, and am sending best wishes for you quick recovery.I truly hate to lose followers. I believe this dear lady missed the main point of my post. Interesting, none the less. The post is here.
However, I have just removed your blog from my reading list, because of this post. Not because you are not correct to remnd us all of the dangers in our world today, but because I have no respect for anyone who attacks another person based on their appearance. You have no information on this family's situation, yet you chose to assume that the father was a bad parent because he didn't take his child to school, and that said bad parenting was because of his weight. It was a bad decision on your part, and in the end I cannot remain in support of a blog which condones bigotry. You may not see it now, but any prejudgement based on appearance is bigotry, whether it be skin color, disability, or weight. I am very disappointed in you, and even though you are recovering from an illness right now, this time of reflection may be helpful.

So Be It
This truly saddens me. I have now been labeled a bigot. So be it.
