Linda's thread

9 posts in this topic

Linda, I'm really sorry to see that your thread has been shut down. 

Truth be known, I have not been one to post my beliefs on the thread nor have I really took time to read it. 

I find such injustice that because a couple of haters or do we call them "trolls" who can't tolerate difference they attack to the point of meltdown. 

I have written the Administration asking them to reconsider and unlock the topic. After reading a couple of pages I can see that many members find comfort in the thread and in each other.

Let Linda love Christ. What harm does it do to anyone? If it offends you then don't read it.....quit easy!

PWP find comfort wherever they find it....who are we to judge, therefore  it belongs on the forum.

Seriously,  doesn't Parkinson's give us bigger issues to put our energy into other then picking on a woman who only offers comfort?

Hi Noah

I wrote the administration direct through my personal message section. It may help.

I am so sorry that Linda's thread has been shut down. Her thread was informative and encouraging to me. The fact that it had to be shut down is an example of intolerance toward different beliefs or the inability to be civil in expressing beliefs that are non-Christian. I believe Linda is as open as anyone could be to listening to others, including those who are vehemently opposed to her. She has been firm in her beliefs, but always fair in her response to those that are against Christianity. With Linda at the helm of the thread, anyone who opposes is not discouraged from posting unless they are purposely trying to insult or hurt those of us who are Christ followers. The thread was started for those who are interested in topics about Christianity. It was not intended to have the tone that it has had where attacks are the norm. Disagreement would be allowed, if expressed in a genuine way, with the intent of greater understanding. With good reason, she defended her beliefs, but I never saw her be rude or inappropriate in her responses. If there was ever a hint of rudeness it was only because she was unwilling to be trampled upon by opposition. There are certain threads that I choose not to read because I am not interested. I don't understand why all readers do not just stay away from a thread that they do not agree with or in which they have no interest. 

Linda, I join you in prayer for those who oppose you and I also pray for you, that God would restore you after being hurt and insulted by some forum members.

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, Matthew 5:44.

You would certainly THINK that each one of us fighting Parkinson's has enough on their own plate to concern themselves with, that they wouldn't feel the need to interfere with how someone else is coping with, and/or fighting PD in their own way. But alas, there's always that obnoxious 10% of ANY population....whether it's the diseased, sports stars, celebrities, police officers, politicians, etc., that feel a sick compulsion to tear down someone else's castle. History shows, however, that these type people usually self-destruct on their own. So, let them wallow in their own bitterness and nastiness....they CERTAINLY aren't helping themselves do any better with their own PD. (Personally, I hope it ramps up their symptoms).

Linda, just start a new thread. If it also ends up shut down, start another.
