Title: An apology
Post by: Tallitot on December 16, 2009, 09:39:35 PM
I offer my sincerest apologies to everyone on OC.net for my post re: the death of Oral Roberts. It was nasty, innappropriate and over the top (even for me).

I forgive you, and may God forgive us all.

I didn't find it offensive, though I do agree that it was a bit much. But then, I of all people know that regretfully sometimes we go too far in what we say. I hope you are well this holiday season.

We all sometimes say things we wish we could take back or don't really mean.  I forgive you Tallitot, may the Lord God forgive us all.

I often say things I shouldn't (I seem to have to confess that at every confession).  May God forgive all of us.  I also hope you have a blessed holiday season.

We are never so big as when we stoop to apologize. I hope to follow your good example if ever I offend someone in the future.   :)

Shalom/Selam

I forgive you for not thinking through the rhetorical and political consequences. :) It's never enough to just be right, we must,  at times, realize that truth is better served by discression. Though I confess I do not always live up to this ideal...it is hard to deny the truth, even when you know it is for the greater good.

There must be a real narcissistic supply deficiency out there.  Batten down the hatches and prepare for the worst!

Happy Hannukah, Tallitot!

Happy Hannukah. By the way, on that thread on a "priest" who removed a Menorah...that guy is no priest, he's a black robed "Chemerim" (as orthodox Jews would say). Compare that "priest" with the Orthodox patriarch in Albania who is funding a Mosque with the last money his church has, as a sign of goodwill to Muslims. Now that is a good person. The Menorah is a New Testament Christian Symbol:

Quote
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Revelation 1:20, KJV 1611. Those "candlesticks" are a Menorah. Also Hannukah is mentioned by name directly in the NT as an observed Holiday.

No. He was a priest. Just a priest behaving badly, thats all.

The Hannukah Menorah has nine branches.
