God bless this news anchor for taking such a beautiful approach to putting a bully in his place. The person who wrote the hurtful email must be a miserable person inside and out.

"This man chose his words very carefully- I don't think he meant to bully or would consider himself a bully. I've heard that is the case with many "bullies". In NO WAY am I condoning his message, but I think what we are dealing with is a lack of empathy and acceptance in these cases." ~Janelle Roberts.

Hi Rob! Rob's my brother. Rob, what's up with the !!!!!? Did you read my post? What do you think about what I said? Again, people, this is a fine lady. She just needs to make some healthy choices in her life, like losing weight. Most doctors would say the same thing. If you're heavy and say, hey, God accepts me just as I am, you're missing the point. Yes, God loves you, but he does want you to make smart choices.

First off, yes, she's a little bit overweight, but I would have to say she looks fine to me. Believe me when I say that I've seen people a lot more overweight than this person. Now, is this person being a bully for talking to her like that? Well, after reading the note, I really don't think they're a bully. Direct, blunt? Yes. I think they're just concerned about the health of this lady. Calling them a bully, I think, is a bit silly. A bully is usually mean, hurtful. This person sounded like they were trying to offer helpful suggestions. Good advice. If I was this lady, yes, she does need to lose weight. Does the fact that she is overweight make her a bad person? Not at all. She just needs to make healthy choices. She seems to be a very nice person.

Jennifer is awesome to directly address this unwarranted and unnecessary criticism, I like Christine's response also because it brings out a lot of information that God made us all different, and a lot of things we battle are like the Bible says, "common to man," and I think we all can learn more about Gods Unconditional love, "inside and out," as others mentioned, "God sees the Heart Indeed," and as a side note my Dear elderly Mom took this photo of me and I'm proud of her Acceptance, as she's now in Heaven 'cause I know she trusted Jesus; may we whom are Christians do the same through our struggles, whether physical, mental or emotional! He cares deeply for His children! Blessings...

Well said, Jennifer! Your daughters are so lucky to have you as a role model! WELL DONE!

Mark I agree 100% with what you said! Well said! You are one of the brave souls out there! Keep it up!!! Even God Tube needs evangelizing! Sad... but true. Romans 2:5 says of those who sin or those who agree with the sinners... "But because of your stubborn and unrepentant heart you are reserving wrath for yourself on the day of wrath, when God's righteous judgment will be revealed." Also 1 Corinthians 6:9-10... "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." These sinners... CAN repent (which means to turn away from their sins) and believe and follow Christ... so they can be saved. It is not only believing in Christ... it is Following Christ. Jesus tells us in John 14:15...“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments." Grace DOES NOT , WILL NOT , AND NEVER WILL COVER UNREPENTED SINNERS. Sinners who continuously boldly sin and whose hearts have hardened to the Word of God... if they do not repent... will NOT enter of God... Heaven! And last but not least... Luke 13:3..."...but unless you repent you will all likewise perish." Folks we must repent from our sins... for the wrath of God (NOT the love of God) is being stored up toward those who blatantly continue boldly and unashamedly in their sins. Simple. The church has become WAY to SOFT (I call it easy believism) and is NOT preaching the correct doctrines anymore. It is all this feel good easy believism and God loves you talk WITHOUT repentance talk. Come on folks lets read the Bible... even if our Pastors AREN'T! Are you listening Mega Church motivational Pastors out there??? Oh man... it is so depressing what the modern church has transformed into. It makes me sick. They are accepting all sorts of sin without once warning folks of God's wrath to come... the Day of Judgement... Repentance of sin!!! They are leading folks straight to hell... with a smile on their face... and a pat on their back! They never talk about hell... to the point... most church members really don't believe it exist anymore. Boy... has satan squirmed his way into our churches today!!! Folks let us tell folks the truth in love... that they may repent from their sins and NOT perish... if you TRULY TRULY LOVE THEM! That is the MOST loving thing you can do. As Ephesians 4:15 so aply puts it... "Instead, by speaking the truth in love, we will grow up completely and become one with the head, that is, one with the Messiah" And God tells us again in the New Testament... "... Be ye holy; for I am holy." 1 Peter 1:16 Much Love, Carol

You have inspired me today how you took some bad and ugly and turned into a real lesson. No minister could have done as well. I struggle with weight every day. Like you there is more to me than size, don't judge me until you walk a mile in my shoes. God has really used you today to help someone who has been bullied about there siae. Thank You for doing this. I wish you were in our area, I would watch your station because you don't just cover you go inside the news.

Bullies come in all forms, shapes, and sizes. Courage comes in one. ~ Vonda Etter.

Susan Helmuth ~ Yes, God is a God of love but He's also a Holy Judge Who will judge everyone on Judgement Day. For one to go to Heaven he/she must REPENT (turn from) their sins and fully place their trust in Jesus just as you would put a parachute ON to save you from a plane crash. You can't just BELIEVE in the parachute but must put it on. It's like that with Jesus. There has to be a born-again time in your life to go to Heaven and that's where a testimony comes in. So many today believe that God is ONLY a God of love and that He automatically forgives everyone for their sins without repentence!

OMG, what a beautiful message you have stated to that man that was trying to Bully you and others, like myself, that struggle with their weight. Good for you, that you had the courage to stand up for us. I do understand how society looks down on people who do "NOT" fit into the "NORMAL WEIGHT CATAGORY", I have been there all my life and it saddens me to know how mean people can be. They do not know what they are doing to ones self esstem and once self worth. Thank you Jennifer for stand up for yourself and others. "forgive them Father, for they know what they do".....
