Ted, I am so happy you're here and that you've been blessed with the talent of writing with articulate grace.

If I saw you on the street, I'd hug you! Ang

Hmm.

If you really dislike Absolute Write so much, perhaps you shouldn't leave links to your blog there. God knows who'll find it, eh?

Love,

I can not add much more than
what has already been said
by all who have commented.

All I can do is say I agree and
Shame on those who allowed this.

This display of utter disregard to an issue is in and of itself disgraceful.

Several on the other site have put a symbol before humans.

The links to Live Journal and AW were helpful so that I could get an idea of the whole situation.

No one questioned the rights of anyone or any organization to use their symbol for it’s intended purpose.

No one questioned the rights of anyone to show pride of faith.

The question was quite simple.
If at first glance, the symbol, by itself,is too similar to one that causes many to gasp in disbelief of all it represents, should it be allowed?

Ignorant and many unrepeatable words were used to describe anyone who mistook the symbol.

One of the comments here, shows that if you are not expert in defining something it can easily be mistaken as something which causes harm. Is it the fault of
the interpreter? Well if you think it is then in the scenario posted by Cyrena T, would mean the person being robbed is to blame.
She should have further
investigated the alleged weapon before handing over her money.

Why would anyone want to allow this
type of misunderstanding to get so out of hand. The offender could have simply posted more than just the symbol, the person realized exactly what the reaction would be.

It is obvious in the way he coyly posted out of curiosity, to find out just what you see when you look at it.

I find it desperate that some of those who claim to be expert and better than those who showed they
disagree don’t realize the utter ignorance they themselves
display with their reactions.

Hiding behind a religion known for peace is distasteful.

The Cross was also mentioned and many other scenarios.

In my opinion, if I burn a cross on the lawn of a neighbor and place it in a different direction and claim it to be part of an Easter ritual, does that make it right? It would most definitely be abusing a symbol for my own purpose.

The minute something leaves room for questioning, you must
take a step back and consider it just might be wrong.



As long as we ignore what is ignorant, we ourselves
become part of the problem.

2007-03-01T16:05:00.000+02:00

I received a call from a friend asking if she could impose upon me for my opinion on something that would most likely upset me.

I know this gal very well and felt it must be important if she felt the need to ask me.

I have read all that is posted here and on the site you linked to.

I could not react right away. I took a day and thought about it. I am now ready to share with you my thoughts.

My name is Renee.
When I was 3 years old, my family which consisted of mother, father, three brothers ages 7 , 10, and 14
a baby sister and myself, were captured by the Nazis.

I remember the day as if it were yesterday. You see, that was the last time I saw my family.
I was the only one to make it out.

I will spare you the details.
The question posed is of a symbol.

On the site called Live Journal, which you link, there is a picture of the symbol in question. Upon seeing it, the first thing that comes to mind is the swastika. I
notice that those who are not familiar with the details utomatically see it as a swastika. In the end that is
what matters.

I am forced each day to look at a symbol. Not by choice
mind you, it is a symbol etched into my skin as a daily
reminder of all the horror and evil endured by millions.

I took the time to read everything on this posting as well
as all the comments on Live Journal so that I could with
a clear conscience responds.

In your attempt to explain that it is a sign of peace you show much hatred in your response which leads
me to believe the intention of the display was to cause suffering. If you had firmly believed in
what you were saying to the people questioning the use, you would not have to do so in a manner of
belittling those who posed serious question.

I dislike the way you went about it. You showed ignorance
in your attack. Hate breeds evil. Evil is dangerous.

I saw things said such as bashing a religion. That was
not done in any of the comments made by those questioning
the use of this symbol.

I do not know any of you. I am not affiliated with either side of this debate. I am a survivor.
Upon looking at the link to the person who used this symbol, I note a topic called Testing, Testing.
Here the person asks “What do you see?”
I see a person hiding behind his intentions. If he wanted to show his pride in his faith, this would
not be the way in which to do it.

One of the people on Live Journal offered to list names, numbers and gravesites of some of the lives lost at the hands of the Nazis.
This was in poor taste. You see, I can lead you to those as well. It has nothing to do with the original offense.

At no time did anyone question your morals,your history or your knowledge. Yet you felt
it your duty to call those in disagreement with you
ignorant. By hurling insults and curses at people you make it clear that you do not understand
the severity of all that is said.

When people make light of something
such as this, they allow the opportunity for hate to continue.

You wouldn’t dare call me ignorant
I am much to close to this.

You can go on telling yourselves that it is a harmless symbol. I call it denial.

You’re not alone. There are many who deny this ever took place. You have that privilege. I close my eyes at night and can still hear the screaming,and I can still smell the burning of flesh.
I dare you to call me ignorant!

Now to my friend. You asked me
for my opinion. Here you have it.
If we do nothing, we allow it
to continue. I refuse to turn
away.
Never Again!
And to the host of this site.

Ted

Do not defend yourself to those uneducated people.
You post about something very offensive to many
people and those in the land of foul mouths use live
journal as a personal forum to bash you.

Let them continue making fools of themselves
It appears as if teens are running amok there
and if you give a person enough rope, well we all
know what happens eventually.

From my standpoint, I see this.

You posted on your blog, well within your rights,
of something that should be shocking to all who
see it.

The teeny boppers at live journal choose to take
the opportunity to turn it into a circus.

They appear to lack knowledge of all that symbol
represents. But, not surprising to me now, after
reading the comments they put up. They are full
of hate. Of course when the heart is full of hate there
is no room for reasoning.

They accuse you of having a hidden agenda.
Upon reading the comments of a certain few,
whom I assume are in charge of the forum
where despicable acts are allowed, It is clear they
just don’t like you. They will
continue to make a mockery of themselves.

They just have it out for you personally and
are willing to attack anyone who has an opinion
different from theirs.

2007-02-28T23:36:00.000+02:00

I’m wondering why a friend would send me
the link to this site. So I start reading and it does
not take too long to realize why.

It would be comical if it weren’t for the ignorance
factor.

If we listen to the supposed sense of those defending
the use of a symbol of such hate, then we must believe
the following to be true as well.


I see you alone on the street and approach you.
I wave a gun at you.

Me - “Do you have any money?”

You - ” Here take it”



Now, my gun is not real of course. Nope it’s just a toy. Looks real though.
You can’t bring charges against me or accuse me of a crime. You gave me your
money. Willingly.

What’s that? You thought I had a gun. Well if you were not so ignorant you
could have looked closer at it and seen right there on the barrel it says Fisher Price.

Same denial.

Wow! Where do I start?


I Started reading Depravity, Disgust and Stupidity and have read each
post since. I followed the link you put up to Foul Mouth Land and read each
comment there as well. These are Ladies!!!! Professional at that.

There is so much to say and I am in disbelief of the pure hatred spewed by those on
Livejournal.



They accuse each person in disagreement with them of being ignorant and bashing the Buddhist religion.

I read each comment and never once did anyone bash the religion.
In their own warped, twisted way, they contradict what they say in their
own post.

They insist the person was in no way wrong for using a symbol yet insist if
You would just read the links.. ( 2 of them)

See, this is where I have a problem. Why do you have to read a link to define a symbol?

I see the exact symbol spray painted all over the city by hateful people.
If it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck.. I’m pretty sure it’s a duck.

Now scuse me while I go back to foul mouth land and see how much more these (ladies,, ya right) deny the facts. Warning to anyone who dares to disagree, be prepared to
Have several names cast upon you.
