I can't pinpoint any specific post and I am certainly not claiming that you have done this, but speaking VERY GENERALLY, I see an attitude all over life of, "Here is what I do, and therefore so should you." It's not escaping me that I'm seeing the same thing with reference to this phelps death. In that context, EVERYONE is fine, what you're saying is great, what Ralph is saying is great, everyone. But others might not agree with you, and to be *critical of them* for wanting to celebrate the phelps death strikes me as strange. That's their reaction, their take on it, their having had to live with it, etc.<quoted text>
Although they are merely platitudes, I've always found it true that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I have no desire to flatter the WBC, nor do I wish to follow Fred, Shirley and the gang into hell; besides, I do think they've unwittingly done us more good than harm.
I would say I'm more piggybacking on your post than responding *to* it, although it's a great jumping-off point. I'm more or less defending those who can't contain the savagery of their anger for the phelps death, hahahaha.
