God asked me to post this for Him:
To ALL Patch Haters: You ALL have a rare and tremendous opportunity to re-shape a community and quite possibly a state, nation, and world! All you have to do is pause for just 10 seconds before posting a hateful or hurtful comment and realize our hateful comments are really just a reaction to stuff in our own past or going on in our own life right now; and spreading that pain may make us feel a little better briefly but ultimately really serves no one including ourselves. Realize that considering how hateful this site has become your example will be obvious, noteworthy to the media, and could very possibly be the butterfly-effect that changes the world. You could look back in a few years at a more loving world and know you had a hand in starting it.
I’m not suggesting that Newman and Kleiner become beer-buddies or Hidell stop posting funny quips; just pause before posting to remember you are setting the example for the world you’d like to see; and stop posting comments that are hateful or could be hurtful to others. If you feel you have to reply to a hateful/hurtful post just reply “I could really lay into you right now but I choose to set an example for an empathetic world” and reference or copy/paste this posting. Let’s just see what happens! Love each other, or at the very least tolerate and empathize with other’s pain, feelings, and difficulties. Oh, and one more thing, pray and meditate for a more empathetic world; it really does help. Trust Me!
