The interesting thing is, when I read this list of what other people have called you, it makes me think they are the beastly ones, not you!

I also find it fascinating how they consider themselves entitled to try to persuade others of their beliefs; yet if you do that, they call you names.

If you aren't calling them names in return then it seems clear to me who is doing a better job of following Jesus...

Thanks for the kind sentiments Helen. It is indeed unfortunate that some are so terribly wounded by what I say.

I regard the vituperation directed towards Vynette an obsenity especially as many of her detractors claim to be "God-fearing Christians". However the resort to adhominid argument is used by those who are unable or incapable of presenting a viable alternative argument to that with which they have been confronted.
I am reminded of the saying by Schopenhaur "Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognised. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident".
Unfortunately in many cases it is not Vynette's arguments which are opposed but directed towards her personally. Vynette's arguments will assuredly be opposed by those who have a vested interest in maintaining the staus quo but I have no doubt that her arguments will one day be regarded as "Self-evident" and those who attempt to maintain unscriptual pagnised dogma and doctrine will have to actually confront the isssues presented by Vynette and not hide behind a barrage of vitriol masquerading as intelligent rebuttal.
