After all, wouldn't we want the same respect?
Logic, thanks much for your response....I'm appreciative.
Was this your first encounter with Setanta? He's a character isn't he?
Yes, this was my first collision with the poster in question. I must say I'm not used to such blatant hostility and it threw me momentarily off balance. Posters like Setanta I run from like a quick bolt of lightening....first you see it and then it's gone. I am also aware of the different personalities that inhabit these boards.....diversity is great, for the most part.
Maybe you disagree but I think that we will all have offspring that are similar to you, me and Setanta [unless you were sterile] and if that is the case we may need to try and find different methods of relating to them if we really do care about them.
I do not have children...I had a biological child and it was given up for adoption because I was unmarried at the time and at University. Yet, I do discern where you're coming from.
Not everyone is the same, everyone is going to be different than the other. If you truly care about others and humanity why not learn to deal with it the best you can rather than completely ignore someone because of their behavior?
I understand far better than you might believe, Reasoning Logic. There are many among us from all walks of life with varying problems....we, here on the web, only read their messages which can sometimes be highly intelligent, very astute, understanding, and sometimes brutally disturbing. Since one is left vulnerable to such vicious attacks because of naiveté and or sensitivity, perhaps it's better to keep a low profile regarding the latter type of posters. I was wrong in suggesting we should respect the religion of others; emphatically, there are some who do not take such recommendation likely.
Thank you, Reasoning Logic, for your understanding....I like your penetrating analytical mind.
