Hey dude, I just popped in to wish you a happy birthday, and I hope you're not feeling too bad after what happened yesterday, after all I'm just trying to help you, I really am. Please don't take this the wrong way.
Austin, I think I know why you're so, forgive me for saying this...sanctimonious
It's not your fault, it's your parents and their way of raising you, what I know Mississippi is a very faith-oriented state and they don't take too kindly to "outsiders" if you know what I'm saying.
You know the really religious parents that constantly tell their kids that they're going to Hell if they do this, that and the other thing? That's why your quote unquote afraid of this world and it's flaws and are constantly fighting against it.
You don't want to disappoint your parents and you don't want to go to Hell, that's why you try so hard, that's why you can't see another person's point of view, because you are silently judging yourself for agreeing/disagreeing with them.
You are just lonely and misunderstood, all these post are basically your cry for help, is that it?
Mr. Adams let me give you a bit of advice "Don't spend all your time pointing out others flaws take the time to look at your own" after all it's like the Good Book says
"Remove the beam in your own eye, and you will see clearly to remove the speck in your brother's eye."
"I've tried seeing things from other viewpoints, I really have, but they just don't sit well with me"
Keep trying, consider the thoughts and feelings of others.
Once again I am sorry if I offended you in any way, shape or form, please don't be mad.
Again, I wish you Happy Birthday, congratulations on becoming another year older and (hopefully) wiser.
Please try to be calmer, tone down the excitement a few knotches, and please stop with all the petitions.
The only way anyone will "see the light" is if you are gentle with them, don't shove them toward it.
You're trying to share your faith with everybody, not push them away from it.
Like Wazzup said, don't force your beliefs on people. That applies to both sides of the coin.
And if you would like to talk to someone who can understand your plight I know someone who can help.
you've posted that blog 2 years ago. and i have to say is this:
people are their own individuals with their own free thoughts, opinions and choices, that is what makes society plural and diverse. if you don't like people who are into their same gender, that fine by me. but please don't force your beliefs on others.
Now you listen here Mr. Adams, while I respect your opinions, you can't be so overly obsessive over something that isn't hurting you in the slightest. You go on and on about you're not homophobic, while at the same time you keep harping on about how the world is destroying itself letting all this "debauchery" happen, and how the integrity of how something you consider wholesome to be tainted by the unholy perversions of homosexuality and how it upsets the balance of nature". Where do you get off being so quick to judge someone because they don't believe the same things as you? Maybe that's just the way you were raised coupled with the fact you have ASD, and are resistant to change, that's what makes people not like you. I'm sure you're a likable guy, but you tend to be a little bit stubborn.
I'm with Wazzup on this, you sir have this holier-than-thou air about you, that might make people uncomfortable.
I think you're just paranoid, I'm not saying you're the type who sees a non-believer and whacks them across the face with a Bible, but the way you speak and think makes me think your that type of Christian, I'm not saying your ignorant either, it's just that every single post of yours is so formulaic and reiterates the same bullet points of
1. "I hate this thing because it's different from what I was raised to believe in"! Dude it isn't the 1950's anymore.
2."Why does everyone persecute Christians for their beliefs?" Oh I don't know maybe because most of them are overzealous nutbars, making actual Christians look bad!
3. "I must complain to this corporation which I know nothing about" and make them bend to my whims". Do you think they'll listen to someone they don't know, they honestly are too busy trying to make money.
"A true Christian while steadfast in their beliefs does not judge unfairly" You could really learn something from this, but you sir, just continue being stubborn.
I'll believe you when that blog post comes out (if it ever does)
Along with that, I believe the conversation on here was enough to cover it.
This really isn’t the first time people have been making complaints towards me. I dislike the homosexual lifestyle only, not the people. Others would nevertheless go on to accuse me of being homophobic just for disliking the lifestyle and not the people.
Because perhaps maybe you're afraid you could be wrong, heck you called me "blind" on another thread, if you didn't try to be Mr. Perfect all the time, then maybe people would want to be around you more often.
I believe that this is all my fault, but you had something to do with it as well. In short we both ended up hurting each others feelings because we can't agree to disagree.
I'm sure you have friends or family that are gay , does that mean you condemn them? No you don't, while you may not support their life choices, you still see them as people, don't you?
"How do you pull the speck out of your brother's eye, when you fail to see the plank in your own?" Think about that for a bit.
For someone who claims to not be homophobic, you're manner of speaking appears to say otherwise. Listen, I understand that you're Christian,but you could try to be a little more open-minded, the way I see it, you're letting your faith get in the way of your personality.
Why is it that of all things, the supposed sexual orientation of a fictional character is what triggers you?! You can say "I'm afraid of being persecuted as a Christian" well how ironic, when it's your kind doing the persecuting, how do you thing the other side feels?
While I hold no ill will, I am ashamed of your behavior and I believe you should apologize, for the sake of me.
Also, you do know change.org petitions don't work, no matter how hard you try.
I can’t help but just now feel ashamed of you in return, especially because of how ignorant and blind you’re being by this world we live in. A world in which I’m not wanting to be a part of because of corruption spreading around like a disease.
Austin, chillax, you're starting to sound like a conspiracy theorist (if you would just listen to another person's viewpoint other than your own, then maybe we could see eye to eye)
I don't understand why you keep shooting me down when I'm trying to get you to change your mind or at least try to see things my way, but I realize that it is you're opinion and I can't really do anything to change it.
On the other wikis you're apart of, also if you're wondering why the background the Bisexual pride flag, don't ask me. Besides I though June was Pride Month not November
And before you go on one of your religious rants, please remember that we happen to have users of different sexualities as well. Remember "Hate the sin love the sinner" and "Judge not lest ye be judged
Anyways see ya Mr.A, have a good afternoon, hope we get to talk more often.
