This is what she said:

Schlessinger began her program last Tuesday by noting that, prior to each broadcast, she spends an hour reading faxes from fans and listeners. "By and large the faxes from Christians have been very loving, very supportive," she said. "From my own religion, I have either gotten nothing, which is 99% of it, or two of the nastiest letters I have gotten in a long time. I guess that's my point — I don't get much back. Not much warmth coming back."

Your interpretation of what she said is different from mine. Unless you're psychic, she's talking about faxes and letters from her fans, saying "[b]y and large the faxes from Christians have been very loving, very supportive" but faxes from members of her own religion are described this way" "I have either gotten nothing, which is 99% of it, or two of the nastiest letters I have gotten in a long time. I guess that's my point — I don't get much back. Not much warmth coming back."

Perhaps you missed this:

"I felt that I was putting out a tremendous amount toward that mission, that end, and not feeling return, not feeling connected, not feeling that inspired. Trust me, I've talked to rabbis, I've read, I've prayed, I've agonized and I came to this place anyway (emphasis mine)..."

Quite a difference from your assumption that she just read a few emails, that and her faith was so shallow, she changed it based on the emails alone. You are making quite an accusation with such flimsy evidence as a tiny snippet from an article.

Do you really think that is fair? I don't.
