JoeyWhen I logged into EP a couple of days ago, I received a message from a friend, informing me that one of my stories had been removed by the powers-that-be at EP in my absence. The story was ostensibly removed because I had engaged in "hate speech" concerning a certain little arrogant troublemaker. My crime? I reported the happenings between Joey and myself....verbatim private messages, so that everyone could see for themselves what had transpired between the two of us. My reason for writing? Warning others of the kind of person awaiting them in the guise of person of faith.
Wikipedia has this to say about hate speech: Hate speech is, outside the law, any communication that disparages a person or a group on the basis of some characteristic such as race, color, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or other characteristic. I wonder what characteristic I used to disparage said Joey (I utterly refuse to call him by the self aggrandizing name he had the arrogance to appropriate for himself). That he is Christian? Really don't think so, as I am Christian, as well. What I had against him?? HIS BIGOTRY. So you know, my "encounter" with Joey was over religion...or rather his OWN bigotry, concerning all NON Christians. The thing I think is extremely ironic???? I had only just had an intense encounter with another "friend" because I DEFENDED Joey....refusing to say that a certain "story" he had "written" was bigoted, solely on the basis that HE was the author.
Well, Joey, guess we see who YOU worship...the god of this world...and, by all signs, yourself.
