Since you didn't want to sign your name to the comment you left, I will address you here, in this public forum.
When you leave a comment telling me I'm wrong about something, but fail to own your comment by including your name, you are being a bully.
There are lots of different kinds of bullies, not just on the playground, or the locker room. People, like you, who bulldoze someone, then refuse to allow for conversation and dialogue, are bullies.
Why? Because you got to say what you wanted to say, you got to browbeat me, but I didn't have the opportunity to even engage.
You are basically saying: I'm right, and you're wrong. And I'm not going to give you any room to say otherwise.
That, my Anonymous Commenter, is being a bully. This is what we think about bullies around here:
Here's what makes me really sad, though, Anonymous Commenter: you quoted the Bible.
If you've ever wondered why Christians get such a bad rap--this is exactly why. Instead of coming to me, and lovingly pointing out the error in my thoughts, words, attitude, etc., you anonymously spewed a Bible verse in my face, and told me to be grateful.
Do you really think Jesus would have corrected me the way you did?
Here's the thing---I wish you would have emailed me, Anonymous Commenter, if you couldn't bear to leave your name along with your comment. My email is under the "Contact" tab at the top of my blog. I would have, and still am, happy to listen to what you have to say. I'd love to dialogue about it. Sometimes I'm wrong--it happens.
Good thing God loves you, me and those ladies at the park who called my daughter a boy--twice.
I love comments. Who doesn't? I've connected with so many people through comments.
Having anonymous comments is an option. I don't have to allow them. I do allow them, and will continue to allow them, because it's often how friends, who are not bloggers, add their comments.
For the love, people---own your comments--we're all adults here! If you just can't put your name to the comment--email me! Just don't be a bully. No one likes bullies.
