Well, thanks. Now could you explain who you call an idiot and why?

Obviously an individual who is presently pursuing his master's degree in literary criticism at one of the Ivies.  Perhaps his thesis topic is going to be a deconstruction of the Habermas semiotic.  Or something.

Luke 6:22
Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil


Thank you for your insults and hatred.  You have blessed us.  But you have also set yourself against Christ:


Matt 5:43-45
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Beware the plank in your eye, brother.

I am not sure whether it's us the OP insults. Maybe that's what the OP thinks of himself/herself? That's why I asked.

At least capitalise your subject header. It's 'Fool', you idiot.

Matthew 5:22

But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.


Enjoy hell, whoever you are.

I just smile when someone tries to pull this.  The problem with pejorative insults such as this is that it's really easy to have them turn around on you.

I know I feel blessed by the word. 

But now I don't know what to do next.  Should I offer thanks for this blessing?  Or if I send an insult his way,[1] then will that make him blessed, which would trump a thank you? 
 1. I'm assuming the author is male.  But I could be wrong.

Yes, he is.  Only saying that in this case because I think it's pretty safe to assume that he's not going to be joining the forum.  There has been at least one case I can recall where the "regulars" here got that wrong when a letter writer chose to join us, though.  I didn't say anything then because the LW, when she was addressed as a man, made no effort to correct the misconception, and I didn't think it was my place to do so.

Fools, idiots, and an "up yours" as well. Bright shiny examples of christian love in action! How long till we get threats of hellfire and damnation?

I may be giving the writer too much credit though. If the contributions so far are an indication, those words may be too big.

Glad to see such an articulate visitor with so much to add to the conversation. I feel firmly put in my place now.

My tolerance for BS is limited, and I use up most of it IRL.

So you've taken the reasonably well constructed premise of the main site, deconstructed it and rephrased it with your own ability.

Lets see how well you managed to convey the original 'artwork' so to speak..
