|Gays apologize for ruining Minn. politician's 'traditional marriage'|

Former Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (a Republican) received a letter of apology from the "gay community" in that state after news broke she cheated on her husband and was forced to resign her seat.
It is the season for forgiving, after all, and perhaps she will.
Back story: Amy Koch is accused of having an "inappropriate relationship" with a staffer. Fellow Republicans pressure her to resign. She resigns and apologizes for "engaging in a relationship with a Senate staffer."
Koch's apology then apparently inspired the "gay community" to apologize to her.
"Forgive us. As you know, we are not church-going people, so we are unable to fully appreciate that 'gay marriage' is incompatible with Christian values, despite the fact that those values carry a biblical tradition of adultery such as yours. We applaud you for keeping that tradition going," the letter reads in part, according to a post in the CityPages blog.
