That is not irony, it's hypocrisy. Born of a big shoulder chip and very limited life experience and poor choices of information.

Did somebody accidentally hit the "New Topic" button by mistake. instead of "Reply"?

You should always wear an e-helmet, and e-knee pads. ;)

Try saying "e-knee" 20 times fast.

LOL, no mistake. She will know exactly what I mean. If you know, you know. If you don't, no need to worry about it :)

Yep.

The word "irony" is indicative, so too the timing of the new missive relative to a now vanished thread.

Agreed.

I had that thought earlier today too. How if Mormonism creates this infantalization in us as adults, then part of leaving and maturing normally would mean abandoning the box they tried to fit us in. An acknowledgement that there is no box, that people aren't wrong for having lived a different life experience than you have. And I think about how much of Mormonism was about fear, how scared I was all the time, scared of myself, my own feelings, my own thoughts. Scared of being bad or unworthy, to the point where I couldn't afford to empathize with "sinners" or those who lived differently. I felt pity for them, which is not the same thing.

This is the crux of the entire matter. I wish people would embrace this concept and it would take care of most everything else. The other person isn't wrong because they have different opinions, standards, beliefs (absent the bottom line stuff that should meet universal approval, such as the sanctity of life and equally weighty basic principles).

You disagree with me? Well, that's OK. It's a big wide world. And it could be beautiful. Or at least more peaceful when it comes to interpersonal interactions.

Not everybody is the same. (Newsflash!!)

And that's OK. In fact, it's the only thing that makes any kind of sense.

"Better to remain silent and let others think you curious than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" is a principle by which I try to live.

I'm going to blame my faux pas on Alanis Morissette.

Really though, sometimes you are too kind given past behavior. You need to watch more Judge Judy :)

Why does Judge Judy need to be such a rude witch all the time!? (She's not necessarily wrong because...jeez...people can be so stupid.)

Honestly, all her show is about is people subjecting themselves to being humiliated by her for money. What is wrong with our culture that we reward her so well?

Sorry for the diversion. It's Susan's fault. ;-D

I think she just gets tired of stupid. She doesn't get really rude until she explains the law three times and people don't listen. She will try to fix ignorance but stupid gets to her. Or someone lies. Do not lie to her, she will expose you as an ass. Once in a while she will be incredibly kind. She is an interesting woman.

Don't worry, Dave. No one died and no trains were injured in a thread that got deleted.

I vote that it be reposted. Archived even!

In other words, 'It wasn't essential to your exMo salvation, so I deleted it.' Besides, 'I don't think we teach that here on RfM.'
