"I'm appalled at so many levels I don't know where to begin"

The Indianapolis Star wrote a cute little religion puff piece on Jeanne Atkins yesterday.

As Paul Harvey would say, here's the rest of the story, courtesy of Ruth Holladay's blog.

"The story of the owner of Atkins Elegant Cheesecake and her deeply prayerful life with her employees gets prominent play on the Star's web page today and in the Gannett-owned Noblesville Ledger," Ruth reports.

"Here's a little different slant --- Atkins' cheesecake boss lady Jeanne Atkins' halo is tarnished by a recent nasty court battle involving her gay son and his partner of 25 years. That aspect of her life -- which was legal news in a June 27 court ruling -- goes strangely unexamined and unmentioned in this sugar-coated piece of cheesecake reporting.

"The Atkins decision was summarized in the Indiana Law Blog when it was issued June 27th, just as every Indiana appeals court decision is summarized, every day.

"I'm appalled at so many levels I don't know where to begin," Ruth says. This Indianapolis Observer is in complete agreement.

Instead of being lauded for her piety, Ms. Atkins should be run out of town on a rail, with tar and feathering for good measure. What a nasty woman!

Another example of a self-righteous hideous mother. She should be proud of her son. Instead, she keeps him from a life-mate, at what could be the last days of his life. I won't buy from her again, as my income won't support a bigot.
