I’ll never claim to have that one absolute, final answer. Everyone is on his or her own journey and I would never consign a fellow traveler to hell because he believes differently from me. Usually I know better and stay away from people who will send you off to eternal damnation because you dare to disagree.
Still, I plead guilty to being a troll. I read that term on someone’s blog: a person who scrolls through posts with the purpose of sending nasty replies. Actually, I take it back (my being a troll) since that wasn’t my purpose. I just happened to come across a post I took issue with. Usually when that happens I ignore it, which I think is the best way to deal with such situations–and face it, we’re not going to love and agree with everyone and vice versa. While my reply was innocuous, it earned me a place with the boogeyman, so said the blogger. Oh, well, I should have known better. As a child, I was told not to talk religion and politics in public, but this time I succumbed and for that I apologize to said blogger.
On one other occasion, I also did the unthinkable. I was on the site of a psychologist who wrote parents of adult children with schizophrenia should feel guilty for causing their child’s illness. I responded with X#$^&!!! since he was so full of crapola and not worthy of a PhD. Therapists with those beliefs are eligible to join the clubs of Dumb Doras, Dumb Bunnies or Tweedledees and Tweedledums. They shouldn’t be practicing because they cause more harm than good. But enough of my rant and to everyone in bloggingland have a nice day and beware of trolls.
