I'm going to try to laugh at myself for this, but it's really rather pathetic.
I left a decidedly pro-life comment on a post on a popular blog and got one rather caustic and bitter reply. Now I have a notification in my inbox of another reply and I haven't opened that email. It's been two days. I just can't handle the criticism. I mustered enough bravery to post the comment in the first place, but just can't handle the storm.
I feel like I should and like I should go leave a reply, because I know the truth and I want them to know too. Not just 'cause I'm right, but because they need to be right.
I don't know if I'll ever open that email. Like I said, almost funny but just somewhat pathetic.
I'd like to blame the middle child in me, who hates conflict and name-calling. I'd like to blame my fear of man, but God doesn't let us make excuses for our sin.
Somebody help me.
