    Re: Glenn Beck

I hesitate to post here again, but will do so merely to ask many of this thread’s participants whether they really think they are edifying themselves, or their underlying beliefs, by continuing to respond? Are there not better uses for your time, intellect, and emotions?

Whether the insults are real or imagined, just try to let them slide. In the unknowable future many of us imagine, almost everyone here is more likely to be a reliable ally than an enemy. Differences of opinion, of viewpoint, are not necessarily bad; they are just different, and frequently worthwhile.

Vanity Fair, Agitating Prop, AO, Safewrite, Romans, et al: you all have valuable viewpoints, and I enjoy learning from each of you. Disarm, shake hands, move along, whatever. There are much more important things than this…

 If I plan to form an intentional community, I have to be able to gauge how people will behave within that community based on their beliefs and behaviour NOW. There is no more valuable use of my time than trying to get a fix on what is workable and what is clearly hopeless.

If new members come to this forum and see that the same tired left versus right rubbish is being argued back and forth, unopposed, they may rightly conclude that people here are remarkably lacking in basic saavy–and move on. They would miss a lot of great practical information and  some worthwhile theorizing.  I bristle, again, at the moral, intellectual and emotional equivalency umbrella you have stuck us all under and want to register my extreme distaste. A few of us have been reading, studying, and living this information for 20, 30  years, and more.  If we sound like  pompous a**e*, here to teach, inform, that’s why.

Sorry but I am not buying it.  Seems like a classic mistake for someone to make with multiple accounts.  You have no credibility with me.

Friends all, there is only division to be found here.  Sides have been chosen, many, many words have been written and very little has been said.  It is your choice now to foster community or continue to ensure that it is not to be.
