Recently long time commenter Mark became offended after I allowed Avalo to post his opinion and went over to Jack’s blog to post:
I have realized that what matters to me more is the weltanschauung of the blog owner. Turning people away from Weinland is a noble thing, but it just leaves a person in limbo. Attempting to bring that person to an authentic relationship with Jesus through scriptural proof is more important to me than just chronicling the lies, deception and audacity of a two-bit preacher.
To which Jack responded eloquently:
Mark, believe me when I tell you, a person who has just escaped Ron’s grasp and is in limbo, the last thing they want to hear is someone preaching the gospel. They have to go through a complex trial of emotions and an introspective nightmare that will last months. No matter how nice I, or anyone, may be to an ex-cult member, the last thing they will want to talk about is God. Anyone who talks about their former situation or any kind of religion will receive a tirade of profanity and insults that will make them wish they had not brought up the subject.
I guess you could ask Kirrily and the relations of PKG members with whom I have corresponded privately via email if they felt that I left them in limbo because I didn’t push a particular religious agenda on them. We’ll have to wait for them to weigh in. That is if they choose. Because I regard our private email exchanges as exactly that — private. For example, I’ve known for some time that Kirrily and her husband are expecting their first child. While I wasn’t sure why Kirrily chose not to share her happy news on my blog, I felt it was up to her to choose whether and when to do so. So again Kirrily, congratulations. I’m glad that you and your husband are getting the child you’ve wanted for so long.
As a result of Mark’s comment, I learned something new. The meaning of “weltanschauung” which is world view. In the comment sections to my posts, I’ve allowed others to express their opinions, within limits. Including a recent one by Mark himself which quoted some scripture and a religious point of view. To which Avalo responded with a different point of view resulting in everyone ganging up on him as though how dare he express a different point of view. I just have to wonder how secure you are in your thinking if someone else expressing a different opinion upsets you.
Do I have a “weltanschauung”? Yes, I do? What is it? Well, while I haven’t expressed it, I’m not in the least ashamed of it. Rather, I thought it might distract from the subject of this blog, which is not my particular weltanschauung but rather False Prophet Ronald Weinland and the effect his lying insanity is having on others. I will express this much of my weltanschauung which is relevant:
Do your own thinking, don’t let someone else do it for you.
