I've been spending less time here for other reasons than who posts and who does not. But what encourages me to post, when I post, is the friendship and fellowship of Polycarp, BlackElk, sandyeggo, saradippity, JMJ333, Aquinasfan, St.Chuck, Siobhan, Salvation, american colleen, Desdemona, ArrogantBustard, NYer, Notwithstanding, sinkspur, patent, SoothingDave, RobbyS, ThomasMore, and others.

AMEN! I also consider every single one of the people you just listed to be my kindred in faith, along with others who post here. I have also fought with CP, and this poster is full of more hate than the "Jack Chick" posters. While most of them have been mislead about the Catholic Church, CP knows what he is doing. The best thing to do is to pray for CP, for it is the best way to show Christian love, for Christ said to love your enemies. The other thing to remember is these Beatitudes:
"Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righeousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

(Matthew 5:10-12)

Also, if I may add to my post above, we may disagree with any of these people at times, but we can be sure, for the most part, that they are not going to unreasonable with us. That is something I can be happy about.
