Hi Sabrina

Due to a Lupus flare and finding it can be rather stressful, I've refrained from entering Meta since posting here. I do, however, wish to express my gratitude for your insightful perception of the issues being discussed. My post to Geek Tragedy was based on what I see as his dedication to his beliefs. His perspective is his own as is his decision in who he chooses to defend. It was not my intention to choose sides. Frankly, I find it discouraging that posters can't voice their opinions without finding it necessary to take sides in such a contentious fashion. My comment to GT concerning reflection was based on the behavior of those who can't seem to express their views without stooping to nasty personal attacks with no small amount of glee and snide comments. I tend to question a person's motives when applying such tactics. I've recently joined a coalition that was formed to combat bullying and many of those same tactics are in evidence in most instances of bullying. I guess that's why I find it so distasteful. For that reason, I tend to skip the comments made by certain posters when addressing certain other posters. I hope I'm making sense and thank you for your patience.

Good call

I think you should be commended for your tireless support of the women at DU who some seem to have no qualms about attacking, in the nastiest fashion, while at the same time berating them for their behavior. Strange how we can't often see in ourselves what we so blithely claim to clearly see in others.

Thank You

You can be proud of who you are. You are not a hypocrite.

I see so often on DU, people bemoaning the fact that Christians are terrible people because they are hypocrites. Therefore, it seems a tad hypocritical of those same people to condemn you for actually living your Christian beliefs. In my lifetime, I've met many people inside and outside religious communities who are hypocrites and others who try their best to live by their Christian beliefs. I have a strong distrust of organized religious institutions and absolutely no respect or kind feelings toward the Pope but I do respect you for your Christian attitude and am a little disappointed that others can't do the same. I think you serve as an excellent example of a person who lives and practices his Christian convictions on a daily basis. In my opinion, you owe no one an apology for who you are.

I'm with you. It's a horrible reminder of a sickness in our society. n/t
