Hopefully you're commenting because you're genuinely concerned about misinformation about autism, and you're not just a troll or trolls. I wrote the last entry about God, healing and autism almost immediately following some bad things that happened concerning one of my children on the spectrum. It was certainly NOT meant to be derogatory toward people with the condition.
I'll have to post more later on the subject, but for now let this suffice: the condition is not WHO YOU ARE. It is not an innate part of your being any more than blindness would be who the blind person IS. Yes, it affects everything that person does and how that person sees things. Yes, it affects how we treat that person because it HAS to. (It would be very wrong to ask your blind friend to go get the green shirt near the yellow sweater from a huge pile of clothes stacked on your table, wouldn't it? Well, right now it means I can NOT let my Elf go to public school.)
But it is not who that person IS. And any comments I made (right or wrong) about autism shouldn't be taken personally. FYI I have great love for my two autistic sons. It is very hard to see them go through things that other kids wouldn't have to go through.
I suppose I write these posts to try to get my *own* mind around the whole thing. I have no political agenda in this area. I just wonder why God would allow these things to happen to such nice kids. I suppose we won't know this side of heaven.
