Yeah, it’s all below the break. It’s a private note, ya know?
GOPeach, how many homeless fed and clothed, houses built, illiterates taught to read, etc., etc.? Do you really want my C.V. (and everybody else’s here, for that matter) as far as philanthropy is concerned? Because I guarantee you two things:
(1) Mine is much larger, and longer, and more effective than yours, and than RR’s (and I haven’t had to swindle one single person to do one single thing for them), and…
(2) I don’t need to broadcast all – or any of it – to you, or to anybody else, because I, unlike folks like you and RR, do such things because they’re the right thing to do, not for glory, kudos, or personal gain. And neither do most people.
Oh, and I’m an American Indian myself, and we “noble savages” (I know, I “talk and write pretty good” for an uneducated, gamblin-addicted, can’t-hold-my-firewater native; well, I try, anyway) are not big fans of your boy RR. And before you say it’s because we haven’t been properly “led to Jesus” yet, you should probably know that my grandparents – both full Indians – were Christian missionaries for nearly half a century in post-atomic bomb Japan and post-WWII Philippines.
Anything else, GOPeach? Besides forgiving Rugby for his sins? (Didn’t realize that a Christian person had the power to do that – perhaps I need to get back into the Bible and re-read the parts about the line between man and God, as you seem to have blurred it a bit; and here I was thinking that Jesus was the only one who was fully God and fully man).
I’m sure he appreciates it, though, and I’m happy for him.
I do appreciate your typing through the full line now, though; it is much easier on the eyes, and clears up any confusion about whether the incoherence of your comments is due to the format, or to you.
And a “Court Decision” is necessary for somebody to have done wrong? Remember that every time you question anybody here in the future – because you’ll sure be reminded of it by somebody.
Please save your breath defending RR. The vast majority of Georgians saw him for what he was last year in the election, but does that breed humility or a sense of having done wrong? Of course not; the hubris is there, as always, and all that follows the loss is the lament that we Georgians are too dumb to know what’s good for us, and that we just weren’t smart enough to elect RR as Lt. Gov.
Keep thinking that, but never, ever wonder why so many folks (a) think you’re preachy and just don’t listen, and (b) are turned off to Christians and Christianity because of contact with people like you and RR.
And as for those of us who are already Christians, the lashing out at you and him is not because we hate Christianity – we are them, so that’d be pretty ridiculous. It’s because people like RR and Ted Haggard claiming to speak for us, while conning the world and taking advantage of those who are foolish enough to trust them, makes us absolutely sick at the corruption of our religion. Unlike the vast majority of Muslims, who are peaceful and caring but won’t, for some reason, speak out against the radical fringe of their religion who perpetrates terrorism around the globe, we the majority of Christians who are neither con men nor radicals are not afraid to speak out….and we have spoken. RR and his ilk need to Go. Away.
And we’d appreciate it if you would stop bringing him up and defending him, while claiming to be able to bless us and absolve us of sin if we’ll only agree with you.
Though I have no doubt, honestly, that you have nothing but the best of intentions. 🙂
