Here’s some wisdom from one of my longstanding Cabineteers:
The loudest ones are the dumbest ones. They love to shout the lies and myths that they hold as opinions in the hope that people will eventually believe them. You can’t engage them (and shouldn’t) because they don’t want to dialogue; they want to shout their opinions down your throat.
Now, that’s WELL-SAID! That deserves not only a hat-tip, but also a tip of the jug! In contrast to that, Facebook is obsessing over the Target Bathroom Brouhaha. Now, it’s showing a woman holding a Bible and criticising the Target decision. Of course, one can catch Zuckerberg’s implication… all Christians are ignorant rubes and clueless boobs. Firstly, I don’t give a ruby-red goddamn what Zuckerberg thinks of my religion (I already had the idea that he disliked it). Secondly, schmidiots like the Bible-toting screamer don’t speak for me and for the bulk of Orthodox believers (unfortunately, she does speak for konvertsy trash like Whiteford and Dreher). Thirdly, the Bible-toting Know-Nothings aren’t Christian in any case, they’re Radical Evangelical Sectarians, a group that’s appropriated Christian verbiage and Scriptures and distorted them out of all recognition.
As my friend said, “They want to shout their opinions down your throat”. I welcome their enmity… you can gauge the worth of a person by seeing whom they attract as enemies. If I’ve attracted the like of Whiteford and Dreher as enemies, then, it means that I’m on the right track to holiness. After all, they defend Free Market Crapitalism… something that our Holy Patriarch attacks as a fraudulent and demonic system. He shows it by his choice of friends (Comrades Fidel and Zyuganov) and by the enemies that he’s attracted (that noisome lot of self-serving careerists and corrupt power-seekers that makes up the Washington Apparat).
Have a care… the times are NOT good… the rightwing brats are running amuck and God alone knows when it’s going to end…
