If you want to do that, if you really want to make popefans aware of the horrible things you know about the pope, you are best of NOT using such
extreme comments in your post, as popefans will simply ignore you from that point on.
So you are to tell me that peoples feelings should be considered when discussing the truth. (mind you I already admitted I knew my original comment
Do you honestly think anyone would of listened no matter HOW I phrased it? I think you all would of been up in arms even if I would of seriously
questioned why you all admire him soo much.
I realized I was treading on touchy ground, which is why I decided to plant my feet firmly, and stomp Terra as the late great Dr. Thompson. The mods
didn't have a prob, so there must be some validity to my point no?
Once again I acknowledge that some people will be turned off by the severity of my comments, and truthfully they were partially intended for those who
can look outside their narrow world view.....am I to concern myself with those people that can not though?
If every activist throughout time had concerned themselves with the prevailing notions of their time then nothing would ever get accomplished. Did MLK
Jr concern himself with the feelings of the racist? NO! Did la resistance concern themselves with the feelings of the French populace? No! Did Malcom
X concern himself with the racist ideologies that dominated the nation of islam at the time ? No!
Not trying to put myself in the same light as any of these great individuals, but it IS their behaviour that I do model my own after. The fearlessness
to bring truth no matter how ugly it might be, despite all risks to character and person.
