Ignorance is in the mind of the Beholder.

    When did it become law of the land that only progressives and liberals are the only intelligent people in the world.
    When did it become common knowledge that Christian fundamentalists are ignorant fascists and don’t deserve to speak our mind and when we do that we should be shunned and insulted?
    When did arrogance, and slinging insults at those of us who don’t fall into line with the left take over decency and working together?
    Oh we’ll work with you until it becomes apparent that you don’t agree with us then we’ll throw all the mud and crap your way that we can.
    And I’m called the ignorant one?
    What a sad commentary on the United States and Canada in particular.
    And since when does the forcing of two socialist policies by socialist politicians on the civilian population something that they didn’t want 70 years ago, or now, constitute that nation becoming Socialist?
    And I’m called the ignorant one?
    That would be like saying that all the people of Germany were Jew hating Nazis or all of Russian were in favor of Communism.
    That would be like saying that Canada is a slave state to England and not free because they never had enough guts to stand up against an oppressive King like America did in 1776. That would be like saying Canadians are a bunch of gutless cowards because their politicians have never really stood up for anything and have always just done what the British crown told them to do even today Canada doesn't do anything for it's Allies or neighbors, just sucks off countries that are more successful and harder working. One could even say that if it wasn't for it's neighbor America to the south Canada wouldn't have half what they do today.
    But I have too many friends in Canada to ever say such a thing. Unfortunately there are some from Canada who apparently lack the class and tact to offer the same hand across the border to Americans.
    And I’m the ignorant one?
    Since when did it become ignorant or wrong to speak one’s mind in America or anywhere else. We are all about diversity and peace and harmony, unless its one of them there ignorant, stupid, fascist, fundamentalist Christians. Then let's throw all the insults we can think of at them.
    And I'm the ignorant one?

    Seriously?
    After all the slinging of insults the best you can come up with is don't you just love freedom of speach?

    I was expecting at least 1 or 2 ignorant americans comments or stupid Christian comment.

    I simply get Don't you just love freedom of speech?

    Enjoy freedom of speech, it might get taken away from you someday.

    By the way. Yes I for one do love Freedom of speech.
    It might be taken away from me if Obama and his kind have their way.
    But for now, even though you and time thief obviously loath me and my opinion, I would fight to the death for you or time thief to have your ability to disagree with me.

    Even though I find the things that timethief has said about me vile and loathsome, she has her right to say them and I would fight for her right to say them.

    So yes, I do love freedom of speech!

    You don't get it because you simply don't "get" most things.

    Neither one of us "loathe" your opinion. We both understand that you are entitled to your opinion. You however, don't "get" that WE are entitled to our opinions as well. You haven't a clue what "freedom of speech" even means.

    Stop for a moment and imagine what your day would be like if you DIDN'T take everyone's opinion as a personal attack. I bet you'd have a much nicer day. TimeThief didn't insult you personally, and it's really about time that you realize that. She was stating her dislike of certain blogs, explaining how the situation you posted about the cafe fit into her descriptions of things she does not enjoy reading. YOU are the one who made it ALL ABOUT YOU. In essence, you became guilty by your own definition, and continue to verify yourself as such by posting these long incessant rants about how badly you have been offended.

    What you need do is realize that although it's been highly entertaining watching you spiral in a pit of irony, we don't hate you, you're simply not that important to hate.

    I would fight to the death for you or time thief to have your ability to disagree with me.

    You are lying to yourself here. Stop it.
    Because you've done nothing but fight AGAINST our ability to disagree with you, from the very beginning.

  7. So, looks like I have missed all the action in the forums today. Just gotta put my 2 cents worth in. I will post what I believe all day long on my site, and welcome comments from all sides of the belief spectrum.

    Unfortunately, because of a lot of the militant style politicizing sites, TV, and otherwise, many people will not read anything that mentions end times, even when it could be what they most need to hear. But, it's not for me to decide where they get their information. I only write as I am inspired by the Holy Spirit to write on such things.

    And then, I write about everyday life, here and now. I feel a niche is good for those who are looking for others to thread in with them, and other sites which hold the same beliefs. But, for me, there will be no niche, regardless of who disagrees with me. In fact, I welcome any and all whom are opposed to my content to say so.

    I can't say that I will roll over and not respond to their ideologies, or personal beliefs, but, if the person is obviously set against hearing anything that my post has to say, based on their personal bias, or conditioned mind-sets, then I usually just let it go.

  8. Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love, and in order to occupy and distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures, and sinks to bestiality in his vices, all from continual lying to other men and to himself.

    The man who lies to himself can be more easily offended than anyone. You know it is sometimes very pleasant to take offence, isn’t it? A man may know that nobody has insulted him, but that he has invented the insult for himself, has lied and exaggerated to make it picturesque, has caught at a word and made a mountain out of a molehill — he knows that himself, yet he will be the first to take offence, and will revel in his resentment till he feels great pleasure in it, and so pass to genuine vindictiveness.

    Way to take the high road, TiTi. Dostoevsky, indeed. (-;

  10. So you were upset by the "don't you just love freedom of speech" comment. So basically you were just looking for a fight?

    Weird. Go outside. Do something.
