I’ve lived a fairly long time but it wasn’t until I tentatively dipped the tip of my toe into the blogosphere and began posting on my own blog and commenting on others that the realization came.
I am thoroughly beastly person! One small mercy – I only have eyes to see it and not ears to hear it.
Now don’t get me wrong - I'm not complaining. In fact I welcome the proof that my message causes a great weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth in certain quarters.
Insults have explored the entire gamut - from being directed at me personally all the way up to and including my entire country.
I've been told to shut-up, grow-up, and go to hell. To put down the crack-pipe and get a clue.
I've been alternately cursed at and prayed over.
I've been called a revisionist leftie, an insignificant little woman, an object of absolute revulsion, and just plain silly.
I’m full of pride in the glory of my own thoughts, and I render cheap those who have given their lives for the faith. I grieve the Holy Spirit. I not only promote the spirit of Antichrist but in fact I AM the Antichrist!
I’m a heretic, a heresy-peddler, and a slanderer of our Lord and Saviour;
An unbeliever, a Gnostic, and a Mormon;
A partaker of evil deeds, a Jehovah's Witness, a Dan Brown lover, and a liar;
A Zionist, and a Zionist camp follower;
An Israeli Foreign Ministry mouthpiece, and an Islamist;
A conspiracy theorist, a self-proclaimed expert, and a nut job;
A spammer, a thread-hijacker, and a troll.
Others have been told to mark me, avoid me, and judge me. Indeed a desire was once expressed to vomit on me.
But wait...there's more...
My posts have been described as heretical and dangerous, small-minded, deceptive, and whacky; as cartoonish, emotional pornography, vomitorious, and unbelievably arrogant; as ludicrous and simplistic, full of pseudo-arguments and hackneyed 19th century canards.
I promote blatant Arianism, Gnosticism, Nestorianism and Unitarianism. I spew heresy and hissss… [as in serpent I guess].
Even though I don’t really object to any of the foregoing, I truly must protest the following deplorable evidence of our schools' continuing lack of attention to the teaching of proper punctuation...
"an Aussie anti-Trinitarian Dan Brownish type conspiracy theory self proclaimed expert nut job".
Can any good come out of Galilee...oops…I meant any former outpost of empire?
