OMG-I totally agree, in fact I posted a comment similar to this on the news channel site. I mentioned something about hiding behind the bullying card to avoid accepting a truth and that he was not being a bully because he said nothing mean, really. Crazy though how it's getting where you can't say anything unless it's coated with sugar and sprinkled with flower petals.

I actually commented on this video, in reference to the way a man went after a woman, who has birthed children, something he will never do, and whom he probably knows very little about to criticize her weight. I think it is wrong, and I think God is not concerned with the size of our bodies nearly as much as he is with the size of our hearts towards his people. I must have been distracted and missed the comment that was "tolerant" towards people choosing to live outside of the moral commands of the Bible. I do not believe it is bullying to state that you have a moral code by which to live by, given to you by the Father, himself, through his Holy Word. I do believe, as Christians, we are called to love all, but we do not have to love all of what others do. Weight and sin are not the same. I am tired of Christians and nonChristians , alike, thinking it is okay to put down people for their weight. It is not always a simple thing for all people, and can not be equated with sin. It is pure discrimination, and clearly, in our society, what has become an acceptable form. Yet, if I had seen the reference to bullying that made the connection that we have to accept all sinful acts, , I would agree with the first post. This does not belong on Godtube. It equates sin and choice with things that people can not help. I think of bullying as something most of us can relate to on some level and the words usually gets thrown around only towards acceptance of things that go against Christian teaching. I do not like how it has become a buzzword for "tolerance" and has pushed forth moral relativism. We have a loving God who wants what is best for us, he has given us a moral code, if we all lived by it, there would not be so much need for these sorts of discussions. People see God's love as unconditional, and clearly, he gave us a code for conditions he wants us to live by. Unconditional is a 20th century concept that is not found in the Bible. "How will I know that they love me?...they will keep my commandments." Clearly we are called to a combination of mercy, understanding, and prudence and good judgement. To this point, God is the only perfect balance. As Christians, it should be our goal to work towards that balance as much as possible. Forgiveness without help from God can be nearly impossible when the sin is grievous enough. Yet, if we miss the part of God that commands and holds us accountable, we miss an entire part of who He is. Not only that, but we will surely miss an entire part of who we were created to be. Yes, God loves all, but He does ask us to love him back by living by His word.

This is not a case of bullying. First of all bullying is a repeated action. The man wrote one e-mail. Secondly, this man has the right to free speech. And the news person has the right to respond back via the same way, e-mail. She chose to play victim by sharing the e-mail with everyone. If she actually did not care what the man thought she would not have made it public and then tried to become a martyr around the misuse of the bullying movement. The bullying movement in itself is suspicious. It strives to curtail free speech and create a country where no one is offended. This is impossible in a pluralistic country. We have to stop being a nation of WIMPS. We need to have tougher skins. Whatever happen to "Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but word will never harm me"? The e-mail writer has the right to his opinion and the free speech rights to print and e-mail them. Or do you all want less freedom in our country? I would rather be offend and have freedom of speech than not be offended and have no freedom at all. You are playing into the left and Demoncratic Party's agenda if you start to believe you are not suppose to be offended by anything in this pluralistic country. 60 years ago adults would have told the reporter to just ignore the man's writing. It would have seemed babyish to harp on it. I saw that time and yes people were offended, but brushed it off like true adults and understood that people have the right to say what they want in this great and country of ours.

You go girl. God Bless you.

We are all requiring grace, and I see no need to remind another of their character flaws - as I need to focus on my own. I believe she crossed the line when she equated one's skin color to one's sexual orientation. There is no shame in skin color. There is in sin.

Jeff Hemley Totally love what your saying Jeff! Preach it brother man.

Well, why don't you tell us what kind of person you really are behind the rude comments? Are you hurting about something? Would you like someone to pray for you?

  • 2012-10-06T00:18:40

Darla, we as Christians cannot embrace sin even if it's not the popular thing to do.

Mark, what God are you speaking of? The GOD whom I know loves everyone, and sent his SON Jesus Christ to die for EVERYONE's sins out of that LOVE. Even those of homosexuals. Even YOURS. GOD nudges us toward HAVING a repentant heart. Reread John 3:16.

So Carol Did God make you judge? I do not care what a person is bullied for it is wrong. This is fine on God Tube. As Christian we sympathize with any one who is bullied, belittled, and we always side with the underdog if it is warranted. Would you rather a gay teen take their life for what they are because we as Christians should not take up for them because they are different? No my God is the only judge of people and as a christian I do not sit and let begets as yourself be anyone's judge. This is plain ignorance. God is the only judge and some of you need to remember that.

Do not Judge!!! You show NO LOVE

  • 2012-10-05T23:33:28

And God also say's sir not to Judge. I believe that is what you did with that statement

Rude unacceptable comment.

How wrong you are Mr Driscoll. You clearly do not work with/have close contact with young people or others who experience this type of bullying on a daily basis. In many cases, e-mail bullying leads to social isolation, despair and suicide attempts. This grieves the heart of God. (James 3:9-12) Where is your compassion?

P. Jack Driscoll WOW! God also sees a judgmental heart! Who are you to say that the way this woman looks on the outside is because of gluttony? Do you know the definition of gluttony? So many times we (I've been guilty of it too) try to attach a simple answer to how a person looks or acts. Sometimes it may make sense, but ultimately unless you get to know and understand someone's past you will NEVER know the reason behind why they look or act like they do. Shame on us for thinking we understand why someone is the way they are without first trying to get to know the person for who they REALLY are. We're all broken in this place - hence the need for a Saviour! So let's take time to understand each other's brokenness in a loving way instead of spitting in Christ's face!
