You have some major anger issues, or something else going on that has nothing to do with me or my opinions, and I'd recommend that you calm
down, read what is written before flying off the handle and if you can't manage that, maybe this isn't the best place for you.
Yes, I have anger issues....anger at people who continue pushing this ridiculous agenda. I am angry at society for not stepping up, for saying
"it's never going to get better" and hiding behind dusty dogma that makes no sense. And I am angry at the religious right being so pompous and
arrogant, when their agenda is backward and oppressive, judgmental and narrow-minded, and they REFUSE to try to think outside their little
velvet-lined boxes and come up with real solutions.
I'm sick to death of people saying, "Well, it's in the Bible, and it will never change, so let's just sit around and use uppity tones of voice to
remind one another, and others, that their 'silly New-age fad' idealism is futile. Because we are all failures, and we suck, and there's no help
for it except to say 'Okay, sign me up, Jesus' and then just believe we'll be okay. We don't have to do anything else about it, or be respectful
to those who are too naive (aww, silly little do-gooders) and stupid to get on board. Amen. Now let's go have coffee and danish in the parish hall
and talk about that great round of golf we had yesterday!"
I don't care what you "recommend", I'm here to fight for a cause, and I don't care if it was me or 3NL you were calling "buttercup". It
flippant, and disrespectful, and therefore, offensive. You have some major superiority issues, and I am perfectly within my rights to
protest that kind of "name-calling" toward ANYONE.
I've been more frustrated lately because I continue to be spoken to as if I'm an ignorant immature child, by people who have obviously not taken the
time to become familiar with my theories and my position, and automatically feel free to disregard my dignity. I am an adult, with grown children and
many, many years of study and thought behind me, and it's ridiculous for you to try to shore up your "superior knowledge" with condescending terms
of endearment toward those you seek to belittle with sarcasm. And you know it, 'honeychild'.
A spirit that is not helpful and full of love, but is dark, critical, arrogant, negative, fatalistic and haughty is what keeps humanity back from
moving forward into the "light". Yes, it's beginning to infuriate me.
