Last night this blog received a few comments. One of them concerned a post from about a year ago, Searching for Judas, which dealt with Sen. Cuccinelli, Rep. Wolf, and the pro-life movement. In the comment the respondent wrote:
You brought the bible into the discussion…
Where in the bible does God promote influencing government instead of people? Wouldn’t all of the money spent lobbying our government be better spent on individuals in need? Lead by example rather than force.
You say “Should I treat them as unrepentant heretics? Heaven forbid. Not only would I alienate myself, I would also condemn many otherwise fine and upstanding people that I respect and desire to work along side, not against. ”
In that short passage, you have usurped Gods omnipotent power to judge and bowed to the will of the people rather than God. Are you not aware that, as a believer, you are expected to be ridiculed?
Although I didn’t agree with the remark, I certainly would have allowed such a comment on this site. Little did the respondent know, however, that the first time anyone posts a comment to my site, it has to be personally approved by me. Now as it was sent while I was sleeping (at 12:33 last night), I didn’t see it until the morning. Enraged by the fact that the comment did not appear, about two hours later the respondent commented again, this time solely to belittle my religious devotion. I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to tell you that I won’t be approving comments by this individual anytime soon.
Although I appreciate the comments you all make, please try to be civil. Before you post, you should read A Comment About Comments.
