WHY I’M NOT LEAVING . . . (more below)
Heartfelt thanks to a friend who alerted me to this situation. (And the “situation” seems urgent and in need of explanation.)
WHY . . . (full title) —
Of course, this is against my will. So why don’t I leave this place and go write “somewhere else” ?
I’ve thought about this. I remembered the Catholics who lived under the Roman Empire in the first few centuries — then, as now, they were told by our Master to pay their taxes to Caesar, knowing full well what the caesars do with the money.
I go to my public library which offers books and DVDs which contain content with highly offensive illicit sexual activities and moral turpitude of all kinds.
I even shop at grocery stores and pharmacies which offer material which “celebrates” illicit sexual and drug activity among the “celebrities” and how-to magazines. . . . as well as actual paraphernalia relating to illicit sexual activity.
I have not yet received any Divine Calling to retreat to an isolated desert location – away from all this.
For a similar reason, I will not leave this blog program because of their not-so-subtle BULLYING and MENTAL INTIMIDATION staring me in the face.
I won’t “rejoice” with these triumphant people, but I will use my writing as a MAGIC MIRROR – to reflect back in their direction words needed to counter . . . such things.
Actually, I’ve been doing this right along, but without the personal, individual, clearly intimidating message staring at me in my face.
One more thing: I’ve always meant to apologize for the rather cryptic (to me) message that “Your readers may see advertisements here in this place.” Have you? Have you seen any offensive advertising? I don’t see them, if any. Please let me know.
