An open letter to……..

In a couple of months I will celebrate two years of “blogging”. To date I have written 732 post which have generated over 40,000 views. I write about what is on my mind at that moment and lately those moments have been about the latest stupid thing “our” President has done or said. Honestly if I had written about every stupid thing “our” President has done or said my post count would be double what it is but I have tried to pick my battles with Trump and his Trumpets over the last year and a half.

The other topic I enjoy pursing are the right-wing, conservative “Christians” that seem to be dominating the airwaves and believe it or not, I am sure you will, these are the guys and gals that send me the nastiest emails and comments. I will on occasion let one of the comments slip through and attempt to have a levelheaded conversation/debate with the offended but mostly I just delete them. I have learned in 56 years of living that it is difficult if not impossible to have a sane and rational conversation with someone who is insane and irrational. I already do that every night trying to coax my rat terrier into her kennel.

I bring all this up as a public service announcement that if you, my readers, are interested in challenging my opinions or views please don’t start the conversation off by calling me a dumb-ass, a f*cking p*ssy, a piece-of-shit, or my favorite, telling me to rot in hell faggot lover. I will not respond. You see I don’t think of myself as the smartest guy in the world as our fearless leader does. My views have and I hope will continue to evolve and revolve. If that makes me wishy-washy in your eyes then I am okay with that. In my view there are no gospels, nothing is permanent, and everything changes, everything.

Over the last few weeks I have had one rather pious gentleman take great exception about what I have written about his Lord and Savior Donald J. Trump, and Jesus, but more Trump than Jesus. He has accused me of hiding behind a cloak of anonymity and that if I had real balls, they are real I got the kids to prove it, I would write under my real name. In his mind I can’t and won’t be taken seriously unless and until I “own” my views by providing my name, address, social security number and blood type. That’s not going to happen.

So my advice to Mr. Pious, Mr. Evangelical, Mr. Deplorable, and Mr. Homophobic is this, there are 74,652,825 blogs floating around this universe and out of those 74,652,825 there are probably one or two that would LOVE for you to click the follow button and rant and rave all you want. Me, I don’t need you better yet I don’t want you. Until you can be civil I will keep deleting your comments and your emails. I truly do want to understand your side, your views and why you think like you do. At some point we need to start the healing process with or without Trump but starting your comment with “Dear Dickhead” is not the way to begin a conversation.

Your friend,

Mr. Dickhead

    What you do not respond and like to be insulted , debased, lied about, missunderstood, have your views distorted, or simply made fun of because the person responding doesn’t understand english or appreciate views stated? Shocking, I am shocked I tell you. Here I thought everyone who had a different opinion from the demagogues just existed and even loved to be insulted by people who have to look up non-vulgar words and then misspell them anyway. Now you have shaken my faith in reason and tolerance with this stance of wanting to be accepted and treated as if you were human also. Oh the blessed primate ancestors when will this ever end?

    By the way. I agree. I am willing to talk but if the other party simply wants to be a deplorable troll, or just rant to vent their spleen, there is not much to learn and no chance of a dialog. Conversation and discussion take at least two, and some are simply not willing to put in that effort. Thinking hurts them too much, where emotional venting reaffirms their preconceived beliefs. Great post. Hugs

    • Scottie I try not to be rude to people, I realize the way I write about and describe Trump and the Evangelical movement rubs a lot of people wrong but they are my views, right or wrong. I have lost my cool with some but hopefully that is the exception rather than the rule. Hugs back my friend.

    Truly, the “love” of Jesus shines brightly as the followers and supporters of “our” leader respond to your opinions and comments.

    I think all comments should begin with acceptance and love, so from now on I will try to call everyone something nice…like “sweetie”…yea, that will work! So, Sweetie..keep on doing exactly what you are doing. And for the foul-mouthed holier-than-thou maroons that make disgusting commentary? Delete…and if they don’t behave as adults with a brain, delete some more. and if they continue to act inappropriately ban them from your site. I learned how and so can assist should that rather drastic action become necessary. By the way, have you received death and dismemberment threats yet or are Gronda and myself the only two such blessed people? lol

    As a Christian who enjoys your writing and subject matter, I thank you for puncturing our bubble of self-righteousness. Keep on keepin’ on.

  8. It’s time to take off the rose-colored glasses, stop drinking the holy water, drop the invitations to the ‘kumbaya’ campfire, give up the thought that stupid can be fixed, and face the reality of who and what is currently running the show. It’s a war between civilized enlightenment and stone age tribalism not only in America but throughout the world. We know who the victor will be, but, we all may be dead before he/she comes to settle the score. Namaste, brother. Congrats on 2 years of great blogging.
