An Etsy seller based in California has reportedly refused to design the guestbook for a same-sex wedding because it goes against her Christian beliefs. Prospective customer Jami Howard first posted about the incident in a Facebook post on April 8. The first few message exchanges were friendly, Howard said, but when she mentioned she was gay, the communication paused. Eventually, Pale Designs owner Jessica Fong sent back the following response, which Howard reproduced in the body of the Facebook post:. After talking with my pastor and praying about the situation, I decided that I shouldn't design your guestbook for you. Please know that I did take this into much thought though. Because I am a Christian and I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, I feel that designing a customized guestbook for you two will be against my belief and will mean that who I am and my business supports gay marriages.
Themes of racial and class tension, antisemitism, grief and complicity pack these pages. Even though it focuses so closely on human emotions and impulses, the scope of this cross-generational book is definitely epic. Was that part of your concept of the book from the get-go? Did you always want to weave together the story across three generations, or did one generation provide the seed for the others?
