I wasn’t sure where to put this, but feel it is of importance for some Catholics and like-minded Christians to read. These are some thoughts I had tonight, pondering the way of society. They may help some people in dealing with certain situations regarding being yelled at or criticized for their beliefs, especially if at random.
True love, truth and kindness severely “threaten” those opposed to them. They believe as they believe–in a kind of transient and for the most part conditional “love,” “truth” and “kindness.” They indulge themselves in all manner of sins, with consciences formed as they please them to be formed and or how society would have it formed and tend to feel peaceful and happy for a time, albeit perhaps uneasy because we don’t agree with their lifestyles, even if we say nothing to them about it. Many like to tell us “how it is,” but not to dare tell them how it is and for the most part their minds are made up anyway
Mostly, to their faces, the best we can do if they yell at, scream at or criticize us about our beliefs, is to be like Jesus when He was handed over to Pontious Pilate–mostly silent. They are mostly deaf to us and most who are not like to twist our words and use them against us. In fact, unspoken truth may be believed by many to be "the most threatening variety. It gives them nothing to yell at or scream at without risking looking like a jerk, after all.
