Have you ever been the target of cyber-bullying? What was your reaction?

Cyber-bullying?

Well, not exactly, but I did receive a horribly mean comment on livejournal telling me how disgusting I was in rather explicit verbiage.

Normally, I don’t delete comments even if someone disagrees, because it’s nice to hear other points of view. This comment, however, crossed the line of friendly disagreement to harassment and didn’t edify anyone.

I love that little delete button on our computer keyboard, don’t you?

Here’s the thing we need to remember…

When we stand for truth we make ourselves a target of attack, but God is so much bigger than all of that.

He can make even our enemies be at peace with us.

And then, He can so transform the heart of our enemy that they can become our best friend.

They called you disgusting?!? Never! Sometimes people who have been "hit over the head" with religion react like that. I can't believe it has anything to do with you personally.

My kids went to school with a girl whose Mom walked her to school and back every day...in HIGH SCHOOL!! She had no Dad, no siblings, no relatives, just her Mom and her Mom's version of religion, which was warped, to be honest. She used it like a club to make sure her daughter stayed tied to her. Very unhealthy. I'm happy to say the girl managed to go to college and found her way, but she could have easily become anti-religion because of the way she was brought up.

I've been the target of trolls, flame wars and character assassination online. I guess technically that's "bullying". But honestly, I never think of it that way. There are people are who truly harassed and abused online and it's utterly horrific the pain they go through because of it.

Not all of them, but if I can't find what I need, I do.

I wanted to thank you for the things you write. This week has been a particularly hard week for me due to mom being in the hospital (and a mean old dad saying unkind things to us, aka bullying), but I read her some of your entries while she was in the hospital (i hope you don't mind). It really brought a smile to our faces.
Thanks so much.

I am so blessed to know that this brought a smile to your faces. I will be praying for your family today. I'm sorry it's been such a tough week.
