I’m on a couple of email lists that are getting nastier and nastier, in terms of language, insults, snide- and even hostile-toned reports of things going on in the political arena. I emailed one of the originators with my concerns and was basically brushed off: those liberals get what they deserve.
Look. We’re supposed to be “The Good Guys.” We’re defending Life, standing up for noble principles and Ultimate Truth.
We can afford to be courteous.
Not only that, we must be courteous, we must be gracious if we want to have a positive impact on the culture we live in, and if we want to win others to the Truth of the sanctity of life.
Any immature spoiled brat can go around pronouncing insults against people he doesn’t like. Real adults exercise self-control and refrain from hostile insults.
If you haven’t done it in a while, go back up to the top of the page and re-read Matt’s Page on Debate. Then take a deep breath, maybe drink a second cup of tea while you ponder your words, actions, and attitudes.
Pray for our opponents. They have been deluded by the Enemy. We want to see them converted to the Truth. Right?
