    I recently was on the receiving end of a similarly condescending admonition. This really well summarises how I felt. Thanks for writing.

  2. As a fellow “former conservative thinking Christian” I can tell you that the abuse I went through at the hands of my brothers and sisters taught me the value of the use of ‘bad’ language. I discovered that sometimes it is the only way to fully articulate the depth of emotion I was feeling!

    Your encounter with the commenter reminds me of this quote from Tony Campolo:
    “I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.”
