Madame L hopes you continue to write letters and make phone calls to express your views, especially when you come face-to-face with egregious examples of hypocrisy and lying.
Madame L wants you to know she still does that, herself. Here is the text of an e-mail message she recently sent to Mr. Lawrence O'Donnell, host of "The Last Word" on MSNBC:
Please see the following post:
You're quick to point your finger at other celebrities who don't know how to make a real apology.
Now it's your turn to set the record straight, to re-write, so to speak, your original lying slur of the LDS church and its founder, AND your subsequent apology, which was lame at best, hypocritical and self-serving as usual, and a real disservice to yourself and to liberals and progressives who claim to hold the higher moral ground.
A sincere apology would include:
1. Setting the record straight, using the historical facts, which are very well laid out in the Swampland article by Michael Scherer: http://swampland.time.com/2012/04/12/the-story-behind-lawrence-odonnells-apology-to-mormons/.
2. Taking out the face-saving "if" and replace it with the acknowledgment that you DID offend people (not just Mormons but other open-minded people who want to hear the truth, not centuries-old lies that have been repeated ad nauseum by bigots since 1830) ---
And it would NOT include:
1. A disingenuous and hypocritical "invitation" to church leaders to "set the record straight."
Come on, Mr. O'Donnell, the ball's in your court. Return it with dignity. Don't keep channeling Glenn Beck and his ilk, lying hypocritical bombasts.
