    I am a patient and normally easy going person. But a couple of comments on my hub have been irritating.

    I'm not out for religious discussions but Gods this torques my pentacle.

    Sorry. Just needed to vent a little before I move on.

      I am wiccan. Apparently I am "wrong". This is why I stay out of those forums.

        Ahhhh, you got their superstitious, self-righteous side going. Good for you. Remember their comments are always far more about revealing who *they* are rather than who you are. You are fine. They feel threatened. You hold all the power, my dear. Their comments could really just be meaningless, I think.

          I think what really saddens me is the impression of narrow sightedness. There is a huge big world out there with so much to offer and they can't or won't embrace it.

            Yes, narrowness. So narrow minded their ears touch, in many cases. Good for you for plodding forward.

    I can imagine!! you just have to remember everyone has very different opinions and beliefs about life, especially anything religious. sometimes I wonder how people live with so much bias and judgment in their lives. people need to learn and respect religious tolerance.

        I have found that people are fundamentally afraid of that which they don't understand. it's called ignorance. keep writing about what you are passionate about!

    Gemsong, as one Neo-Pagan to another, that's what the delete and spam buttons are for.

    And if someone is making a personal attack on you and they are registered with the site, file a report with admin.

      I don't feel attacked, just annoyed. I tend to try to practice tolerance.

    yeah delete those annoying comments. you have a record of them in your email inbox and if you get enough of them HubPages can deal with them. i do not allow negativity on my hub comments at all. sorry they did that to you...i know how annoying that can be.

    poetlorraineposted 9 years ago

    i think it would be better if some one did not agree with a hub to just pass it by, maybe even just say it is well written as yours was.   It is a subject that some people will not like, you must have known that when you wrote it....

      I know, I know.... I'm in the no comment category if I don't agree.

    You can't do anything about other people's narrow-mindedness, all you can do if you want to, is zap 'em...with the deny button, I mean.

    You keep on keeping on. Others need to just move on if they can't practice the harm none theory.

    Think of it this way:

    How many wars has Religion started?
    How many wars has Religion prevented?

    No surprises, just be glad your not in Salem...Early America!
    I mix it up a lot in the political forums, but I avoid the Religous ones.....too volatile.  Its amazing because Religion is supposed to be about love, peace, etc. 

    Look at the bright side, your views have been challenged. Thats really the only way you can be sure of what you believe.
