So, let me see if I have your definition and action translated correctly.
(I have no urrim and thummim at hand, I have to rely on intuitive psychic powers.)
You go about "replacing hostility with love" by defending any critical comment toward an apologetic person or stance.
Not very close at all. Love can be expressed even if you disagree with someone.
How's that workin' for ya? You think it's really making some kind of positive effect!
When I first arrived, people were pretty hostile to me, some of those same people have simmered down quite a bit. The hostile atmosphere in itself is still here, but many attitudes seem to have made some shifts, at least somewhat.
That is the strategy you've adopted toward "replacing with love". You don't factor in the critics view pertaining your goal. (see underlined quote.) If you did factor in the critics view of your "loving" strategy you would see that according to many posters comments you aren't batting a hundred - nowhere even close to batting a 10 or even a 1.
I don't know what you're talking about. I never said I am batting 100 or even close to it. I"m trying.
Your strategy and technique leaves many people annoyed, which does little to induce and promote a compassionate love. Logical people would think that your technique defeats your alleged purpose.
People will be annoyed no matter what happens...the history of the world seems to indicate as much.
The kind of compassion you induce in me is toward pity - making me feel sorry and uncomfortable for you - and I want to pray for you. I guess your goal then is met, albeit it in a back-handed sort of way. Likely not the actual type of goal your strategy was intended for, but based on your inability to express yourself coherently (most of the time) it's usually a guessing game, wherein you come back to tell the critic they're wrong, for various reasons, usually that you couldn't be bothered to explain yourself, hence the apparently perceived contradictions on the part of the critics toward yourself is the responsibility of the critic.
That doesn't induce much love, if spreading love truly is your motive.
I think you've painted a pretty unfair caricature of my participation overall. That's all right though. I welcome your opinion.
Really, Enuma Elish might want to start up an apologetic school, where apologists are at least trained in the art of defending Mormonism, otherwise they come off as fools. I don't suffer fools gladly... a fool who has no concept as to how to motivate love or compassion as an intended goal by not factoring in the group she/he is engaging with.
Indeed, it is much better to refer to others as fools then to attempt to listen and respond to their words and thoughts. Whatever. Peace out ,my good man.
