I just viewed one of the most disgusting tweeter threads I've read since I started on Twitter a few years back. Believe me, Twitter can get really nasty really quickly. The truth is I rarely, if ever, bother to check Twitter that much. My largest contribution to Twitter is the feed connection to SBC Tomorrow. Whenever I post a piece on the blog, I link it to my Twitter feed.
In January, the Twitter nastiness became so bad, I started a little site entitled Twitter and the Truth. I gave then the reason for the site: "Twitter and the Truth is a special page and the purpose is simple: to address the gross moral ignorance and unsurpassed nonsense of social media abusers."
As one can see, I haven't followed through in fleshing it out as it rightly should be. Only two abusers are presently named. We could easily add a half-dozen significant others not to mention a host of cowardly anons who logon undercover. Eventually, I hope to do that. But alas....the time and energy to do so escapes me. Honestly, to wade through the senseless muck these guys produce on a daily basis would constitute a heavy emotional drain. Who has the stamina to do this? I surely don't have the time even if I had the stamina.
On the other hand, when someone goes after a 15 year old boy, ridiculing him and his household, and even encouraging the teen to personally contact him if ever he wanted to know the "real truth" about his dad, now that's something else.
For several months, JD Hall has been baiting me into responding to him concerning Ergun Caner apparently since I am the Vice President of Communications at Brewton-Parker College serving under the President, Dr. Ergun Caner. Hall's last trumpet blast goaded me because I haven't spoken about things going on in Dr. Caner's personal life. The truth is, only an undeniable buffoon assumes a college official thinks it's his or her obligation to speak publicly about the personal life of any employee of the college much less its president. But avoiding buffoonery has never been, nor do I think it will ever be, a virtue social media abusers like JD Hall will crave.
Just today, JD Hall unloaded a series of tweets aimed at intimidating and bullying Ergun Caner's son, Braxton Caner. The unabashed arrogance Hall displays is breathtaking. See for yourself below:
Hall perpetually calls for Caner et al to repent. If Hall is calling us to live in his world where he judges what right is, I'd rather take my chances in what Hall rejects as an ungodly, immoral world. The scary truth is, more and more the social media abusers sound like the late Fred Phelps.
As for me and my house, no thanks.
With that, I am...
