I am cracking up, you guys, and I just had to post an update to my “Mystery of the Loving Christian” post.
I should reiterate that I initially wrote that post about a year ago and I’ve been blocked for at least a good six months or so.
So when “X” happened to respond to a Twitter thread today between my dear friends, @Playdoughpoem and @Vanromon, and me, right after I published that post, I had to think it was destined by the Flying Spaghetti Monster (sauce be upon you!)
Of course, tweeting from behind a block is exceedingly dishonest. I just laughed and asked the others to untag me a few times since I was blocked. Monica (@Vanromon) asked to be untagged as well and told X to block her also. His response?
Doesn’t anyone else find this creepy?? I think I was pretty generous in my original post and giving him the benefit of the doubt that I believed he might be sincerely expressing the Christian “love” he was taught to. Now that I can prove he’s a liar, I don’t believe this any longer.
“William” (of course not his real name either) is using a lot of words here, that either I don’t think he understands, or he is being intentionally dishonest. Due to his past behavior, I’m inclined to think it’s the latter.
Let’s play “Interpreting Dishonest Christianspeak”:
“Fighting for you” = trying to force you to believe the same as I do.
“Loving you” = saying ‘I love you’ as a method of emotional manipulation.
“Unconditionally” = until I figure out that you will not be convinced, and I do block you even though I said I wouldn’t.
So there you have it. I have to admit the exchange pretty much made my day. I love waking up laughing.
Note: When I originally wrote my “Loving Christian” post, I respectfully did not post X’s name or Twitter handle as we were still pretty friendly. Now that he has declared my conscience “seared” (i.e. called me morally decrepit and repugnant), blocked me, and continues to use manipulative tactics towards friends, I don’t see the need to spare his name or Twitter handle since everything is public anyway. That said, I’m in no way encouraging anyone to harass or dog pile him. Thanks!
