Re: Alabama governor apologizes for remarks on Christians

A woman I work with said that Governor Bentley's remarks were accurate and that it was something that should be said by everyone. I was shocked by this. I realize I live in the deep, extremely religious Christian south, but I find her view so extremely offensive. What should I say to relatives who are Muslim, what about those who are Jewish? What should I say to my father who doesn't believe in God? Should I disband them from my life, or try to convert them simply because I am Catholic?
