I visit some pastors' blogs and read their posts. Most of them I like. Some of them I disagree with. Others are just so boring (recycled sermon sites) that I stop reading them.
Sometimes I leave comments, but some pastors don't like it if you disagree. And rather than continue a dialogue, they get out their Marcionite scissors to delete relevant statements or opposing ideas. They are no longer bloggers...they've just become censors.
The funny thing is this: most of the censors that I have come across are liberals...and I thought that free speech was their mantra. It's usually old dinosauric conservatives like me who are supposed to be reactionary, but I've suddenly discovered that's not true.
So, here's my message to all you pastor bloggers: if you can't take dialogue, then why leave room for comments? And if you can't bear to exhange ideas, then buy yourself an old fashioned journal with a lock on it...oh and make sure it has a mirror on every page.
