Whether or not you believe it should really doesn't matter if it hurts someone. I don't think that people should hate brussel sprouts, but you know, some people DO hate them and feel revulsion for them. I don't tell them to suck it up and eat all the brussel sprouts because that's what adults do. See what I'm saying?
This has now become a completely different discussion which is quite disappointing. I hope I don't have to leave the Bump community because I've really enjoyed it so far.
Pertaining to @DarthFuriosa "The world is not filtered through my sensibilities"...If that were true then we wouldn't have blatant prejudice/racism/discrimination. You may want to rethink that statement. Knowlingly offending someone...Who was knowingly offended? I'm not offended. Are you? Perhaps you should take my advice. Lol.
I would feel the need to leave because as far as I understood it this community was about pregnancy, parenting, and things of the like. If I wanted to have a discussion about religion I'd to an online community that addresses those things. I understand that the nature of online communities can sprout disagreements but when used wisely they can bring camaraderie, offer support and encouragement. I wouldn't have an issue if the title of the discussion board was something like, "what are your thoughts on teaching your children about religion? Agree/disagree?"...something like that. This board, however, is not about that and I found the religious plug disappointing. Just my opinion.
@DarthFuriosa Actually the world is filtered through my sensibility. What I believe to be true is true, hence the phrase perception is reality. Is this how the world should work? Beats me. Point of clarification: I understand the English language quite well. And you knew exactly what I meant when I posed the question: who is knowingly offended. But I suppose you're the grammar police. Is this a paid position? Do you receive fringe benefits? Additionally, I did not post the original religious comment. I simply agree with it. I believe it to be true. It's my truth. My perception. My reality. I'm finished. New discussion please. *drops mic* Edited for grammar...I didn't want to be ticketed by the grammar police.
So @DarthFuriosa is now the grammar and syntax police? Do you get extra pay for that particular job duty? It appears that your job keeps you pretty busy. I actually love your posts because they provide an opportunity for me to respond with sarcasm. Thank you! As previously stated, this is all entertainment. However it appears you're upset. If you weren't bothered you wouldn't keep responding. Lol. "Are you big mad or little mad?" As for dropping the mic @PeggyOlsonFTW: when you get a moment can you forward a copy of the MIC Dropping Handbook? I would love to review the rules. You guys are funny. What will you say next?
I'm not offended by any comments made in this forum nor should you be offended by mine. All of this is just entertainment. If I don't like something that's said then I ignore, which is the entire point of my phrase "keep it moving". I never said others weren't entitled to their opinion. But everything doesn't have to be offensive. Pertaining to @DarthFuriosa "The world is not filtered through my sensibilities"...If that were true then we wouldn't have blatant prejudice/racism/discrimination. You may want to rethink that statement. Knowlingly offending someone...Who was knowingly offended? I'm not offended. Are you? Perhaps you should take my advice. Lol.
Why would I allow myself to be hurt by strangers? And my feelings are in check. I have a baby on the way and I couldn't be more excited. This little back and forth exchange did help pass some of the time until my appointment next week. Thanks!And I always have the last word......................................
I am down with prayer, but its really not very aware of your audience to assume that everyone here is cool with preaching and praying. I mean, thank you and Jesus is my homeboy, but there are people from all faiths and walks of life here. Bringing God into the miscarriage discussion can veer into hurtful territory. I've known individuals that have prayed fervently to God and still lost their children. I had a period of feeling God had abandoned me after my losses. So, it can be the opposite of comforting. I think its a good idea to be aware that there are many, diverse individuals on this birth month board.
