@Dr-Mark said in no prayer requests allowed:
So many people have posted insulting things,
I completely regret having created this thread
that gave them a forum to vent.
Just an idea. Maybe something so intimate and potentially prickly as discussing someone's personal God shouldn't be done in such an open forum for to do so comes the risk of one's feelings getting hurt either intentionally or unintentionally. It takes a very thick skin to discuss God on an open forum.
My feelings are not hurt.
Before I retired and was physically disabled,
I served 2 years as pastor of a church among nice people
and 10 years as evangelist among vicious people.
My mistake was thinking that everyone here would just read my request and keep it in mind if they felt led to do so.
I honestly did not expect anyone to be snotty.
I honestly did not expect anyone to post replies at all.
For 10 years I expected it from anti**********
but I did not expect it from friends here.
I blame myself.
I opened the door and they felt free to do it.
I hope the administrator either locks this thread
or, better yet, deletes this thread.
I don't want to be the source of antagonism here.
I'll leave permanently rather than be the source of antagonism that ruins the site for everybody.
