I wanted to title this “Liar, Liar, Lori Alexander’s Pants Are On Fire” but figured it might be a bit much. Lori is back on Facebook after a 3 day time out for very bad behavior. She posted in several places she’d taken a self-imposed Jesus-related sabbatical from Facebook, but later admitted she’d been banned temporarily. Typical Lori, two different stories dependent on who her audience is.
Here’s the thing I find the most curious and upsetting about Lori Alexander – her utter inability to admit when she’s wrong about something. She never backs up, she never turns around, and depending who is asking her then her story changes. Just apologize already and admit!
One of the big character reveals of people are if they can admit when they are wrong, or apologize or ask for forgiveness, even when they are not entirely at fault. Those that cannot are about as safe as a car that you cannot put in reverse, or make U-turn with. It’s an enormous character flaw, one that people will notice and remark upon. It’s not slander (spoken) or libel (written) if someone notices you don’t do something well.
Recently I had a situation where several people had very wrong ideas about something I’d done. Rather than throw rocks at them, or avoid them like was my first instinct, I went to them, explained, apologized for any hurt feelings and misunderstandings that occurred, and we ended with laughter and hugs. Later, one of the people involved, and one bystander to the situation told me they were impressed by what I’d done and how I’d handled it, even if I hadn’t done much wrong I gave everyone a graceful out. I believe in grace and forgiveness.
But a big part of that is admitting when you’ve done something wrong, or handled a situation wrong. Like Lori Alexander did this last few weeks in promoting the “Make Women Great Again” Conference headed by Anthony “Dream Beach Muscles” Johnson. It came out after Lori’s promotion that Johnson is no Christian, and had said some rather disgraceful things about women and the ladies of the night he’d interacted with.
People were sending Lori those links to what he’d said in the past and she’d registered proper and appropriate disgust upon seeing it. Here’s one of many interactions she had:
Normal reaction, gives me hope that perhaps Lori isn’t that bad. Then she goes here in her secret roach nest of a chatroom, the incubator of bad ideas and falsehoods.Facebook group Lori Alexander Banned Me who did send Lori attached to that message copies of those nasty tweets in question by Anthony Johnson. Lori has just lied to everyone in her chatroom.
Why cannot she just admit she made a mistake endorsing the conference and Anthony Johnson and leave it at that? I flub up, I apologize. Sometimes it takes time to get there, but I do. We all do it. We all make mistakes, but it’s how we handle those mistakes that speaks the most deeply to the state of our character. Her character is shoddy if this is any indication.
I was amused by Anthony Johnson’s take on Dalrock stopping blogging.
In the meantime Lori Alexander is back on trying to introduce fat shaming through the back door with the subject of ‘Comfort Foods’
The intricate words and elaborations of a bad liar, methinks. See my thoughts on Debi Pearl’s lies on food this week because I think it applies here.
