Censorship is a great way to help people understand that you have a weak point of view.
From time to time, I wander away from the safety of my own blog space.
I throw my thoughts into conversations with people who think much differently than I do.
The worst thinkers are easy to spot.
They get their feelings hurt when I disagree with them.
Their comments focus on my “attitude” or “tone”.
They justify deleting my comments because I’m not being “civil”.
Then deleted my comment because sneering…sarcastic…something…something….
I linked to his blog (even though he didn’t link to mine) so you can read for yourself…
…assuming he doesn’t delete it.
He was kind enough to post a reply to the comment that nobody except him will ever see.
“Based on our first conversation…I’m not overly interested in what you say.”
What he means is:
“I can’t handle you.”
The “civility” excuse just helps him sleep at night.
He’s not opposed to sneering sarcasm when it suits his purposes.
I’m posting this for my fellow Christians.
You have nothing to fear from the heathen.
There are no rational pagans.
Atheists, humanists, agnostics, and the various kinds of ‘godless’ free-thinkers are no threat to your faith.
They’re cowards, trembling in their echo chambers.
They don’t delete comments that are uncivil.
They delete comments that are true.
