  • Public opinion carries no weight in matters of the soul

    I recently attended a birthday party.
    As I was talking to a young girl, I soon learned she had gotten in trouble with her mom because of a Facebook comment she had posted.
    As I listened to her, the young lady was not too happy about her mom’s decision to make her stay off Facebook.
    I also learned the facts behind the problem, I explained to her why her mom was right and why she needed to respect that.
    My advice didn’t go over very well at all.

  • Shame-based culture on the comeback

    When I was a kid, we used to sing the taunt, “Shame, shame, everybody knows your name!”
    I don’t remember who taught it to us, but we took great delight in singing it to anyone we wanted to shame and humiliate.
    I was a horrible child. I’m still horrible, but I clean up nicely and mostly refrain from pointing out people’s sin to their face in public.
    Still, what is it about us humans that we love to shame others?
