Heather King, who describes herself as an “ex-lawyer, ex-drunk Catholic convert” displays an e-mail exchange with Betsy Cullerton, a New York attorney with severe birth defects. Among other things, Cullerton suggests that our “politically correct” speech actually harms those it seeks to help. Here is the first paragraph with a link to King’s blog:

My mother is a wonderful gardener, and with all of the rain across the Midwest spring has exploded. I was out in the driveway, listening to the frongsong gurgle and belch in the ditches and gulley. A flock of birds rested in the tree above me. The lake, sequined and shining gave the impression of something solid; I longed to walk across it. For a moment I believed I could. Looking out over such an expanse, I felt such a deep desire and longing to return. I prayed over the feeling, and I realized that it was a longing for God. The world is gorgeous and life pure gift. The world is not my home; my joy is veined, riven with exile.
