Lib Anuses Romp – UPDATE

Just go read it.

It’s a little rude. But it’s definitely different.

UPDATE: This is different, too, (thanks to reader Michael)

Kind of all comes under the heading of Luke 8:17 – For there is nothing hid which shall not become manifest, nor secret which shall not beknown and come to light

The point of this post was not to be rude. It was to look at how oddly these anagrams so frequently do reflect a truth. Whether that is because we read tiles through our unconscious or not is anyone’s guess, but it’s interesting.

My name, for example, notes that I seem to live in a perpetual haze, which is true enough: Hazeable Italics

    I roared at Sausage Clump Kit. Thank you for the link, Anchoress.

    I was told many years ago by my father that I had a God given right to vote. At that time, he also told me that I would as often be disappointed by the result of the election as I would be pleased. But at all times, I was taught, the President of the United States of America was My President, and at the very least deserved my (if marginal) support and respect. I am troubled to my very soul at the desperate and vitriolic attacks against Obama. I wonder what Jesus thinks of the hate being spewed from all sides. I wonder if Jesus would say something like “lib Anuses Romp”. I wonder where podcasts of Lenten Vespers fit in with this kind of un-Christlike talk. The Jesus I fall to my knees in front of every day never speaks of hate, only peace.
    While I will not say who I voted for, and given the tone of this email it may be a suprise, I will say that hate begets hate, and for me and my family, we will follow the Lord and Savior of us all.

    [Hence my calling a "rude" article. But interesting. - admin]

    I think I mean the whole thing, not just this posting. Day after day of bashing, of destruction, of well, just plain hate. I am feeling existentially weary of it all. Not just here, everywhere. May God have mercy on us, and keep us from evil. Even that which we perpetuate ourselves. This is one of the things I pray for every day when I pray the Divine Office.

    [I acknowledge anger, but not hate. I pray for my country and its leaders, and specifically for the president, every day. I would like nothing better than to trust this president, but that sadly is not the case, not yet. It is not easy to watch a country be deconstructed. It's not a happy thing at all. -admin]

    vmurray, if you’re sick to your heart, why not just opt out? I used to frequent sites that disappointed me more and more, then I realized I was wasting my time and tinting my mood. If there’s a link marked “crude language” or “rude”, I don’t go.

    BTW I despise our president’s decisions thus far, and I hate his belief that an inconvenient baby out to be a dead baby and/or be made useful to science. But I don’t hate President Obama himself; I pray that God touches his heart and he repents.

    I don’t think you will get very far in your argument, or much sympathy for your accusations of hate, vmurray.

    You see, you are about eight years too late with your complaints.

    Besides, we should not mistake forceful language and heated disagreement for hate. If we were to do that, then we would be convicting Jesus of hate, not to mention most of early Church, including the Apostles. Just read the Gospel of John, especially, and see how Jesus did not shy away from what you might call vitriolic attacks.

    Take a look at how He stuck down and blinded one particular opponent of His who was seeking to destroy the Church. Take a look at that particular opponent, who then became one of the Church’s greatest advocates, speaking out often against the authorities in forceful language. Take a look at one guy who dared to speak the truth to the authorities, rightfully calling them stiff-necked people, before they stoned him. Take a look at John of Patmos, and the language he uses to describe the Emperor Nero, who likewise was a narcissistic fool who sought to destroy society and rebuild it in his image.

    You are right to say that we should not hate — we are commanded to love, even our enemies. But opposition and observation of the destruction going on around us, however heated it may be, does not necessarily equate to hate. Besides, we have an obligation to truth.

    Bender, I think I love you.

    Seriously, this is so succinct it’s marvelous:

    …opposition and observation of the destruction going on around us, however heated it may be, does not necessarily equate to hate. Besides, we have an obligation to truth.

    I would never equate the Anchoress’ skepticism and astute observations about Obama to hatred. Not that there aren’t hateful blogs out there, just that this is not one of them.

    Jean neatly articulated my own perspective, leaving me little to add:

    BTW I despise our president’s decisions thus far, and I hate his belief that an inconvenient baby out to be a dead baby and/or be made useful to science. But I don’t hate President Obama himself; I pray that God touches his heart and he repents.

    Undoubtedly, Christians at one time prayed for Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Mao, Hussein, and there probably are people who pray for Osama bin Laden too. There’s certainly no harm and possibly great good in that–not because it will change evil men into good men, but because prayer does the greatest work in the hearts of those doing the praying. At the same time, refusing to call evil what it is under the guise of “love” is at best foolish, at worst evil itself.
