    Nope, it's true.  I use to get all up in arms about stupid things and now i'm trying to embrace the act of just letting stuff go.  It's actually quite liberating.

    LC- I participated in that thread, and looking back probably shouldnt have.  However, I just think that sometimes the Catholic Board gets a pass on certain things.  Like if someone on the Muslim board was posting about their interpretation of a "rule" in their holy books, and it was very judgmental, hateful, and extreme, would they get the same pass?  Or any other religious board for that matter.

    I lurk on that board because I am having a catholic wedding as a non catholic and every so often find something helpful.  But alot of their threads lately have been about social issues, not wedding related stuff.  I know they can post whatever they want, but when its hateful or hurtful, there is a part of me I cant control that feels the need to speak up. 

    But I have kind of told myself not to get involved anymore since it wont make much of a difference.

    I TOTALLY agree with this. I was uncomfortable with that whole thing. I mean, I can kind of understand thinking someone's religious beliefs are BSC. I also know reproduction and reproductive rights are a sensitive and controversial topic. But holy hell, they were defending their religious beliefs, which include no IVF, on a board which is made up of other people who share their religious beliefs, for the most part.

    I also think the phrasing of the OP's language "(Let's pray for these poor children who will never be born")  certainly appealed to her audience, whereas if someone posted something about IVF on here, it would definitely be more of an "I don't agree with it, here's why, but whatever" kind of thing. She knew her audience and the audience wasn't SB. Most of you took it way too personally.

    I participated in the thread, but it was really in response to some of the inaccurate information that was being dispelled as fact.  I didn't like the way it devolved to a "jesus-freak" namecalling bash session, though, because it kind of nullified the points that a lot of posters were trying to make.

    But see, I don't think their stance IS inherintly judgemental, hateful or extreme. The way to OP phrased it was judgemental, as well as a few other comments, but that's all I can really fault her for.

    Exactly. It just felt like another form of evangelizing, honestly. And it kind of was. A bunch of people went to another board who from the name of their board obviously adhere to a certain set of beliefs and told them all how wrong they were.

    And Blue, I get what you mean. It's hard for me to keep my mouth shut sometimes too, particularly about that kind of stuff.

    I usually see she's posting, read the first 3 words of her reply, then skip to the next reply.

    Also, I like Kristen#s. Maybe it's my weird sense of humor, but most of her replies just elicit eyerolls from me. And others are downright funny. In some ways she reminds me of ffmaid. I liked her too, except that time she went BSC on P2.

    I understand this perspective, too, and I admire you for speaking up under those circumstances.  It was the subsequent board invasion that made me uncomfortable. 

    I lurk on CW from time to time. I'm obviously not Catholic, but FI is, and we had a lot of "discussions" (I'd call them fights, because they were, but I know how Knot memory works!  :p) about whether or not it was appropriate to incorporate his religious identity into our ceremony.  I see a lot of things on CW that make me positively livid -- like that article someone posted yesterday (or the day before, I can't remember) praising a pro-life demonstrator for choosing to pay her tithe instead of her car payment.  It's hard not to respond sometimes, but I know since I'm not a reg there it would be taken as some kind of religious persecution, so I refrain.

    Many authors aren't in it just to make themselves rich, they actually love what they do and take pride in their work. Reducing it to nothing more than a moneymaking ploy is offensive.

    I pick on Kristen#'s because I honestly to god cannot stand most of her advice.  When she gives the rare bit of good advice (or makes a funny), I don't say anything or agree.  But when she starts spouting stuff from a 1950's "Good Housekeeping" magazine, especially about your guests all being "wedding mentors" (I'm sorry but I REALLY don't want a vast majority of the people who came to my wedding to mentor it.  At all.) it really chaps my ass for some reason.

    If it wasn't for the movies, I probably never would have read the HP series. (I also did not read the original thread that this discussion is about). As a fan of the series, I like the merchandise.

    I don't like Harry Potter or Twilight either, but I don't think people who do like them are idiots.  I just don't really get into fantasy-type storylines, it's never been something I was interested in.  NMS.  I like reading autobiographies or watching bio-pics, but I can see where other people might think they're boring if their interests are different from mine.

    As I said in the other thread, I disagree with you strongly that there's something wrong with adults reading books that are also marketed to kids or teens. Twilight does generally suck, but the Harry Potter books are really well written, and I also think they have a lot of interesting things to say about the development of teenagers. One reason I loved them was because it was really fun to watch/read the kids as they grew up, especially Hermione. It reminded me of what it was like to be a teenager, and I think it's good to remember that.

    I also read plenty of much heavier stuff for all sorts of reasons, given that I am a graduate student. But sometimes I want to read something light, and Harry Potter it is, and I don't think there's anything to be ashamed of about that.

    I just don't get what makes people so mad. I think I just don't pay enough attention. I do think that some of the people that were jumping on her in that thread were doing so to be cool. I don't doubt your hatred for her, but I think some of the others are too new to have built up anything real yet.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : HP & Twlight is what I'm refering to, and it doesn't really have to do with the books. It's the movies and merchandise based on the books that's being shoveled down our throats that kills me. Allow me to say in regards to HP I think it's great how many kids it got back into read - and such hefty books no less. Twlight, I have no defense for, sorry.

    Merchandise is one thing, but that's not what you said in your OP. I don't remember the exact wording, but it was somethng along the lines of judging adults who read HP and Twilight because they should be reading something more at their level. Then in your first post here you didn't say merchandise, you said literature. So, I'm sticking with my OP.

    It was near the beginning of the SB manual.  DIDN'T YOU READ THE MANUAL???

    I have a grievance with lumping HP in the same category as Twilight. I love HP (the books. the movies are ok.) JK Rowling did an amazing job writing them. Her story, details, imagery, everything was fantastic. Now, I can't actually bring myself to read Twilight, but I've heard from several people I respect for their writing abilities that it's terribly written. Also, I don't see nearly as much HP merch as Twilight nonsense all over the place. Regardless, if you were JK Rowling or Stephanie Meyer and had the opportunity to have your work all over the place, wouldn't you?

    See, I find that funny because it's so ridiculous. :)
