"Reflections" on Hate

Apologies to any reader who might have seen the anonymous obscene political rant (on a nature and wildlife website ???) posted on this site on Sunday.  It was four hours before I saw and removed it.   Ironically, it appeared on one of my “daily blessings.”  Nice.  

Most blogs require captchas, a poster ID, plus moderation before a comment appears.  I suppose I should change my settings . . . but I won’t.  It was always my intention  to make things as easy as possible for readers to leave comments.  Since life today is so complicated, I wanted Reflections to be a stress free zone—and so it shall remain.   Besides, bullies, cowards and haters do NOT deserve to win.  

And finally, a comment to  my anonymous  commenter:  you might want to check out this great article entitled 30 truths to tame your tongue, temper & intolerance.  Here’s a taste:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control. 
~ Galatians 5:22

“The three things that will likely trip you up more than anything online will likely be your tongue, your temper, and intolerance for other people’s views, tastes, principles, beliefs, and behaviors. Here are 30 biblical truths to help you stay focused and call on heaven in a minute. Keep them handy. Don’t just read them, mediate on them, pray about them and ask God to make them personal and real to your specific situation . . .”
