The Truth

I have responded a few times to a couple of Bruce Tomaso's posts over at the Dallas Morning News' blog. Each time he has chastised me for not allowing for others' beliefs - not being "tolerant" of those who don't agree with me. Those who don't believe like I do. I haven't responded to him yet and probably won't. He seems to be a pretty cynical creature from reading his snide remarks when he posts something or replies to those he doesn't agree with. Considering that I am a pretty stubborn cynic myself who isn't likely to have his mind changed by someone whom I already disagree with, it's not worth my time and effort to debate him about his intolerance towards me (and those he disagrees with).

Still, I find it personally necessary to remind him of one verse in the book of John:

John 14:6

This statement does not support diversity of beliefs nor does it depend upon anyone agreeing or disagreeing with it. As a business associate of mine likes to say, "It is what it is."

Alan, what the URL for the DMN blog you are talking about?

Go to the front page - look down mid page - maybe more towards the bottom where all of the blogs are and look for the religion blog. Many folks blog on it. It's been a few weeks since I have been there - even longer since I have commented - but Bruce usually has a something snide, sarcastic or cynical to say about that which he posts...

To be honest...

I don't read the paper newspapers (though I will check their websites). 1) They are large and cumbersome. 2) They leave nasty black residue on your fingers. That is enough for me to stay away from them.

I watch the nightly local news, and I might go to the FWStar Telegram if I want to find something in particular.
