God loves all of us equally no matter what the circumstances are but you are also loved by many here on this earth as well just the way that you are. The Ellison Family over her in Athens loves you very much!!!

1. How do you know that a "man" wrote that email? 2. This is a publicity stunt. Because there is no way that was the first email she received telling her she is fat. 3. To all the people preaching "god sees what is inside" or "it doesn't matter what is outside" or "that guy is a bully". - Email did not say she was ugly. - It said she is fat. 4. Obesity is "unhealthy". So that Email can also be considered as a suggestion focusing on Health. - She was the one who took it as a remark on her looks instead of her health. 5. A lot of buzz going on about bullying these days. Weren't we kids once? Were we not bullied? Did we not learn from it? We turned out OK, so will the kids of this generation. Stop pampering them and let them fight their battles.

I don't think that criticizing the physical condition should be considered as bullying a person! This is a question of cultural and social standards... In many countries in other parts of the world she would have been considered a beauty... However that person didn't have any right to be judgemental on behalf of an entire community! He might have health issues if ever he was FIT and she might just live as healthy as any other person the way she is!

Good for you Jennifer! Why are grown men and women engaging in bullying anyhow? I will never understand why someone elses appearance makes you so upset that you feel the need to write them an email about it. Really? The man who sent her that email obviously has his own self esteem issues that he is dealing with himself. I hate it for his children and wife. Smh.

Yes, homosexuals need to repent,that is Biblicalyl accurate, but that is not an excuse to bully them. How on Earth did we start on homosexuality anyhow? I thought this thread was about this lady being bullied. Smh.

P. Jack, God also sees those who cast judgement.

Being a person in recovery from many things I'm reminded that a sin is a sin is a sin in the eyes of God. We human tend to "rate" sin. I also believe that everyone should stay in their own lane. We all suffer/struggle with something but that doesn't make it ok to lash out at our fellow man especially not knowing anything about them or what their character is etc. I know for me personally it's all I can do to focus on my own shortcomings let alone concern myself with what someone else should be focusing on according to my standards. Our shortcomings and struggles may be what we are at the moment but they certainly do not define WHO we are or automatically disqualify us from being a role model. So....to the man that wrote the email I would encourage you to focus on your own shortcomings and issues. If you think you don't have any issues......then THAT'S your issue. We all have something that needs improvement and we all should be growing and progressing and striving to be more Christlike and focusing on Him rather than what's wrong with everyone else.

This woman has class and got the point across. We can't tolerate this any more. I was never a bully in grade school but witnessed relentless bullying towards a lot of kids. I always told my own. kids if I ever caught them making fun of anyone, I'd grab them up right then and there and whip them in front of everyone. My kids always reached out to kids in need, poor kids, disabled kids, and kids with family and emotional problems.

I saw this and loved it.

Well spoken. You should never think you are loved because of what you look like, but because of who you are. Very well spoken and thank you Channel 8 for allowing her to post it. She is definitely an awesome role model - working wife and mom who is loved. It doesn't get much better than that.

God loves you just as you are! He is the one who looks at your heart and gives you the most important self worth! Glad that you addressed this gentleman's e- mail comments.

Some people are fat by choice. Others are fat because of certain medications, illnesses, cheaper foods (ie, groceries), paralysis, etc. So, people need to know the facts before speaking. If someone is fat by choice, help them lose weight. If someone is wanting to be fat, let them know that gluttony is disapproved by God. Sometimes, a gentle correction is all that is needed. Other times, a harsh correction is needed. Whatever the case, be wise and loving about it.

People like Joel Osteen mislead their followers into thinking that God is some mamby-pamby granddad who spoils everyone. Such followers fail to realize that God is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and is deity. He judges harshly, but fairly, to the same degree as he is merciful. So, the attitude of "only God should judge" in the way Osteen preaches makes people to think that they can get away with evil. People need to read the Old Testament and New Testament and learn about God's mercy and wrath. Reading about the three choices God gave David alone should show them that they grossly misunderstand.
