I was following links around on the site, bored waiting for my son to wake up and I came across something I found pretty... amusing. And well... I'm bored again so I thought I'd point it out.
I have removed names - I'm sure everyone can figure out who said what as we read.
Awhile ago, there was a homosexuality thread and in that thread - someone said that they felt that people were bashing Christians. So I posted this......
What's good for the goose is good for the gander. You call it Christian bashing, I call it standing up against intolerance. Sucks being on the other side of a group of people OPENLY STATING that they dislike the way you live your life, doesn't it? Take that "Christian bashing" feeling and amplify it by like a bajillion and that's how people who are scared to be who they are feel EVERY DAY because of those Christians and other extremists, that are so intolerant they go beyond just gay bashing with words, they beat and kill gay people.
Now in my trolling - the person that I said that too - posted THIS on another forum;
They have no problem Christian bashing, but when I say homosexuality is a sin I'm called all sorts of names. When I called them on their hypocrasy one of the women actually told me to take how I felt by them bashing christians and mulitply it by a billions because that is how I treats gays. That's when I left. I'm not going to talk to women like that.
I guess what I said is open to interpretation - and I gotta wonder if when people read statements such as that one - if they are able to interpret it in such a personal fashion, internalize it and end up applying it to themselves -- how true it must be to their lives? Should we wonder if this woman would be capable of going beyond words (calling homosexuality a sin) and actually putting into action her hatred? Because that is the interpretation I would then get by her applying my statement to herself so personally.
Is everything we say on here so open to personal interpretation that it doesn't matter what we actually say, since people are going to just take whatever they want from it and turn it into meaning whatever they please? Even if it is wrong?
I also gotta wonder, do these people actually figure that we don't know they're trolling this forum and talking amongst themselves about people on this forum, on walls and in open forums, do these women think that no one can read what they are saying? Why aren't these people talking to us instead of about us?
