She's finally, after many requests, gotten the picture.
Now she only sends me the forwards she thinks I "need" to read. Usually Christian crap.

This quote is from an interview with Attorney General
John Ashcroft by Cal Thomas.
People are always asking me (Cal Thomas) if there are good leaders in Washington. There are. There are quite a few, but you don't often hear about them because many of them aren't engaging in scandalous or self-serving activities. One such good person is Attorney General John Ashcroft. I had the pleasure of interviewing him again this week for a column I'm writing. During the interview, Ashcroft said something so profound, I wanted to share it with you. The Attorney General of the United States said:
"Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him."
"Christianity is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you."
I'm so outraged. I'm wondering how on earth I can reply to my mother in a respectful, intelligent way that she might listen to, and tell her that this kind of thinking (and especially the mass forwarding of the same) is dogmatic bullshit?
