Now before you get all up in my face, let me explain.
I love me some fb. It’s connected me to people that I thought I had lost long ago. It makes me laugh and cry. And, it’s constant “news feed” kept me sane during all those hospital stays.
But, you know, we all have “that friend.” Mine happens to be from my 4-H and college days. He’s a nice enough guy and we shared some good memories along the way. I don’t remember him being uber-Christian, but then again, I’ve changed a little since my college days at A&M, too. He recently posted something and I commented. Actually, I commented wanting to see what he’d say. In fairness, I was polite and kind. Promise. But, I think it’s safe to write that he thinks I’m going to hell because I’m Catholic.
And I’m totally ok with that. Not the hell part, but his believing that I’ll go there, part. Eh, whatever.
What got me, though, was that he dissed St. Francis of Assisi. And he did it in a forum where I just don’t have the energy to fight back. Because, really. One cannot have a conversation worthy of much stature on a social networking site. Conversations like those must be had in person. At least that’s what I believe.
I realize some of you might be thinking, “Um, unfriend him, Kathryn!” Nah, we’re not there yet. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. For now, I just block his status updates and check in on him from time to time. That seems to be working quite well. And, I’m pretty certain he doesn’t even know my blog exists 🙂
Rant of the day over. As you were.
Luke update tomorrow!
