An Appeal To Conservative Bloggers — Don’t Be Tempted By Hate
I know you might have been expecting my appeal to be to liberal bloggers, but please bear with me. And I certainly don’t claim to be better than any of you strong conservatives. Think of my post more as a reminder of how we must resist the very thing that has seeped into the minds of the left. In my dialogues with conservatives there is on rare occasion a very strong angry sentiment expressed against this or that person in sometimes insulting words. The only way we will have a lasting effect in the end is if we embrace the truth. We should not under any circumstances descend to the level of our blogging opponents who ceaselessly insinuate, who continually conjure rumors, who have let hate take hold of their hearts. While insults may give expression to frustration and get some people to take notice, in my view, insults generally are not appropriate especially when are directed at specific people.
We cannot be this way. We do not want to be this way. Please see the good post at http://caffeinatedthoughts.com/?p=3468 on the same topic. In all things, consider the log in your own eye before you point out the mote in your brother’s. If only the liberal bloggers would take the same principle to heart. I have asked the blogger at http://lynnrockets.wordpress.com/2009/08/03/bloggers-and-the-blogging-bloggers-who-blog-them/, exactly why she “hopes” for divorce rumors to be true. I wonder what answer I will get.
