I assume that people in this town are christian, there are a lot of churches here, a lot of bumper stickers, Jesus fish exc...

of some way or another so lets take it from your religous beliefs here....

what does your holy book say?

Proverbs 11:12-23

A man who lacks judment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding hold his tounge. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a Trustworthy man keeps a secret.

is gossip associated with the mind of a man with Judgement, understanding? now I'm not perfect I have gossiped in my days in anger and such... but still it's not right.

it says in proverbs

16;28- a perverse man stirs up dissension(quarrels) and a gossip seperates close friends...

does this sound like God wants us to gossip? your God the christian God...

okay what did Jesus say? Matthew 7:1- Judge not lest you be judged, for by what measure you judge you will be judged...

now does this sound like your messiah wants you to Judge? i don't think so... you are not God...

okay... again.

if you think you are better than anyone, to judge and gossip, about them, why then does Romans 3:10 say "there is none righteous no not one...." gee I wonder why? humm. are you better than anyone?

what does it say about PRIDE...

proverbs 16:5- The Lord DETESTS all that are PROUD of heart, they will not go unpunished...

dang.. looks like Pride, judging, gossiping is all Sin, according to the Bible, so if you are a Christian on here gossiping, about others you are sinning and need to pray for forgiveness and quit.

Someone who pretends to have one life, but really is unhappy, selfish, and bored in their own life and can't wait to cause drama in others. Then they sit back and laugh at what they have or think they have caused. They are the real looser with the lack of status they want so bad. LOL
