Someone on xanga did a blog about how persecuted they are for being different, then said anyone who isn’t christian has sided with the devil etc. I replied to someone praising them and comparing them to sarah palin bravely fighting against evil detractors:
“She is claiming those who do not agree with her are in league with satan. She is actually, literally demonizing people who aren’t like her, while claiming to be victimized for disagreeing and you’re treating her like some kind of hero.
No wonder you like sarah palin, she said some of the most vile and dishonest things I’ve heard come out of a politician and spun the criticism as bias and victimization. She recently made an ass out of herself talking to the press and defended herself by saying she was asked a”gotcha” trick question by the liberal lamestream media and all that BS – the question was ( closely paraphrasing) “how did you enjoy you trip and what do you take away from it”.
Spin is not reality, it is spin. Lies, deception, a slanting of the truth.”
To which someone else replied:
I believe you are misinterpreting what Jesus Christ has said. You have
taken the verse below as saying, ” If you see something that offends
you, poke their eye out. You have misunderstood. Read again what Christ has said.
Mark 9:47King James Version (KJV)
47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the
kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell
It is not necessary for you to continue commenting, but mtngirl is gracious enough to allow it. Consider that.
[then quoted a passage from someone’s blog which I will leave out for space]
I never even mentioned any scripture or anything about plucking eyes out, and that scripture is nothing to do with what I was saying.
