Garrison posted my original comment on her blog and called it “funny” and “tragic.” It’s tragic to stand up for innocent human beings?
It’s tragic how blind she is. She approves hateful, vile and mean-spirited comments that advocate violence against conservatives (torture Cheney and have Bush mauled by a bear), call Jesus a “superfraud” and promote the sexual exploitation industry. And she called MY comment vile. Hahaha! That’s hilarious, if it weren’t so tragic. What a mean-spirited person, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone so blind and against dialogue. She just wanted pro-abortion monologue and can’t handle debating.
As stated in an earlier post, I recently got a request from Becky Garrison’s myspace to be added as a friend. I accepted the friend invite Garrison even though she’s ultra-left wing and bashes conservatives in her book, Red and Blue God. I posted a comment that pointed out that it’s leftists who have the plank in their eye since they advocate child murder via abortion and infanticide, and it is the conservatives who have only the speck since at least they don’t advocate murder. I also pointed out that McLaren’s teachings are often in line with Gnostic teachings, which is a heresy.
She didn’t approve the comment because she said it was “mean-spirited and vile” even though she approved anti-Semitic, anti-Christian comments, sex shop ads as comments, and she also approved a comment that included a link to a movie that compared blacks to monkeys.
She also blocked our common sense journal myspace profile since we posted a comment she disagreed with or challenged her leftist dogma. So I e-mailed her from another account:
I recently posted a comment calling you to task and trying to start a dialogue from my common sense journal profile. But instead of approving the comment, you blocked me. Why? You sent a friends request and I approved it and sent a comment, and I thought you would send a comment but you blocked me, I guess because you can’t handle dialoguing with people you disagree with?
If you are not lying when you said you add people to start a dialogue, how is it a dialogue when you just block people who disagree with you? You’re not tolerant if you only approve comments you agree with.
Perhaps you don’t add people to dialogue, but rather to hawk your book? Do you not believe in an open and robust debate?
Also I would just like to know, are you against abortion and homosexuality and prostitution? Not meaning we treat homosexuals badly, but I am asking if you are against it. I really would like to know because you sound VERY left wing.
She wrote back:
Your comment did not invite dialogue but was very mean spirited and vile – I get enough of that already on the God’s Politics blog. I have had many “intelligent” conversations via MySpace and Facebook. I’m a registered indepdendent. And Brian McLaren is no heretic – judging is God’s job.
Interesting. So I wrote this back, and blocked the profile I was writing from:
Why did you block surfers of faith and common sense journal? Why not have an intelligent discussion, instead of blocking people who point out holes in your argument? How do you call yourself a follower of Christ when you block other followers of Christ when they don’t toe the political line you follow?
Actually your book is offensive, and your profile is vile (it contains anti-semitic, anti-christian comments and porn ads). But it’s called freedom of speech, and I still read stuff I disagree with. What was offensive about my comment? Because it said abortion is murder? Because it said that it’s the leftists who have the plank and the conservatives who have the speck? Many left wing organizations have opposed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which meant to save BORN babies from “botched” abortions. What is offensive about pointing that out?
As for being vile and offensive, you have comments on your profile that promote drug use, sex shops, and a video that compares blacks to monkeys. You have an anti-Semitic comment and anti-Christian comments. And you call my comment that is Christian and conservative “vile”? Who are you to judge?
My comment wasn’t “vile” it just offended you because you disagree with it. Don’t try to judge me, that’s ridiculous.
Don’t assume I am not intelligent because I disagree with you. I am very intelligent, probably more intelligent than you, what was your Graduate Record Examination score? I could have a very intelligent conversation with people who are open minded to the possibility that they are wrong. But you are too blind to see that.
As for McLaren, a lot of his writings are in line with Gnostic thinking, which is a heresy. How is that judging?
Besides, you’re the one attempting to judge me because I disagree with you. Judging is God’s job, not yours.
So I take it you don’t object to homosexuality, abortion, and prostitution? You didn’t answer my question. I would love to debate you but you don’t play fair by blocking people when you disagree with them. I don’t care if you block people you disagree with until you’re alone talking to yourself, but it’s not consistent with a free and robust debate.
Why add people if you block people that post comments pointing out where you are wrong? You approve porn, anti-black, anti-semitic, and anti-Christian comments that are really vile, and my comment was not vile but it just offended your dogma. The fact that you blocked us is vile, but I don’t care. No follower of Christ would shun a person for disagreeing with them. If you want to start a dialogue then e-mail me at www.myspace.com/commonsensejournal but I already know you won’t because you are too dogmatic to consider opposing points of view. My comments were nowhere near “vile” and it’s disgusting and evil to even say that they were.
Garrison is not an independent or moderate, she is an extremist leftist who blocks people who challenge her pro-abortion, leftist, I-will-block-you-if-you-are-conservative dogma.
