I would definitely participate in a Harry Potter thread. I don't remember enough about the bible to be helpful in this thread.
Junebug, it is always risky to ascribe motives to other people. None of us can read each other's minds. I suggest that you try to assume the best of others. Consider it a practice for your "love everyone" philosophy. If someone is not trustworthy, your ignoring their attempts to wind you up will only frustrate them. And if they are meaning to be kind, you will have taken a step toward mutual understanding. This is the shelter. We are supposed to be gentle. In that spirit, I would ask everyone, including you Junebug, to not only BE gentle, but assume that others are being gentle.
