Don't give it if you can't take it

Yesterday's blog about shock jocks brought a surprise little comment for me from an 'anonymous admirer'
It went along the lines:

The more ministers that get sacked the better.

I was moved to reply:

Thanks for that
I wonder how many families you cared for last week whose father and husband had just died.
Or how many people you talked to about their life problems, their health or their worries.
I wonder how many people you have helped celebrate the birth of a new baby in the last little while, or couples you talk to about what it means to have a meaningful relationship
I don't doubt that some clergy are bad and should be sacked...but it's a bit rich to suggest that we all are.
My solution to the 2Day FM fiasco is for people to turn off.
I wonder why you don't do the same thing to my blog if you find it so offensive.

But I don't feel the need to be defensive, so I added

I am also not hiding behind the veil of anonymity

The truth is blogging is about putting unsought for opinions out there. So don't be surprised, I would suggest, when unsought for replies return.

This was sort of my point about the radio fiasco. If you are going to behave like bs*&^rds then don't be surprised when it backfires.
