Open letter to the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden
Dear Mr. Vice President,
Aside from the fact that you have some issues with cursing, and committing gaffes of huge significance, you have went to a whole new level this morning in Danville, Virginia. When you said this little gem of, "They're going to put you all back in chains", my mouth dropped open! Although I am pretty sure you were referring to that metaphor as meaning Romney and Ryan's budget plans, you maybe should have remembered the importance of "putting someone in chains", and what it may have inferred upon people living in the state of Virginia. Maybe you should also read again about the recent fact that President Obama is now linked to the first case of slavery here in America. As a resident here, and a black woman who has ancestors who were slaves, I know the history of my wonderful state, but I do not ignore what happened here. There are some who do not take phrases like that lightly, and quite frankly, I feel you were very insensitive to the history here. I'm sure you know how a republican would be treated if they said the same thing.
Shame on you sir!
Also, as a Catholic I am appalled that as the most prominent Catholic in politics, you have shown a complete disregard of the Catholic Church. I would also request that you start living by the Catechism, or please stop saying how your life is guided by your faith. You are distorting the words of the Church, and as a person of influence, may lead others to put their spiritual well-being in jeopardy.
By the way Mr. Vice President, you were in Virginia, NOT North Carolina!!!
