I just came across a blogger I know for sure is ____ - I knew the guy before blogs were invented - he was ____ then and he is ____ now..
Of course, just because someone is ____ doesn't make them a bad person - I'm just sayin'...
But the guy is psycho.
This post will self-destruct with no warning.
It did too. But that was yesterday and this is today.
I couldn't get into blogger since sometime last night after I removed the "Okay - that's it!" post. I don't know what was wrong - I thought I did something really bad an the Google gestapo were coming for me. In the meantime I had several people email me asking what happened to this post? Telling me they couldn't get into blogger either, and did I think it had anything to do with Helen Thomas? (That part's a lie.)
So anyway - I took the post down because I wasn't using very PC language about a guy I was referring too and I was afraid people with mental health issues they are working on might be offended. I don't want to be uncharitable nor do I want to offend people suffering with these issues when I use terms like 'nuts'. In this case I should have said delusional or something similar - but psycho worked well. I wish I could tell you who I was writing about, but it would be uncharitable to do so - I assure you, no one here knows him. Let me simply say that the guy went from this, to that, to this, and now he's that - but like this. I know you don't know what I mean - but if I showed his photo you would say, "Terry, that guy is nuts!" And I would ask you not to use that term. (No - it's not a priest or any of my friends. Just don't even try to figure it out - he doesn't even comment here or know my blog exists - well he might.)
But what it boils down to is the age-old 'you never know whose online' story. Just watch out while online folks - don't believe every one and every thing you read in their 'confessions' or profile. I tell you that all of the time and it's true. I could tell you stories about some bloggers... never mind.
BTW - I'm working on a post about an unsavory topic - and I'm afraid it is going to be a lengthy one - I hate long posts, but sometimes one has to do them. I could break it up into a mini-series, but people would comment before I printed everything and it might just confuse everything more.
Is Fr. Z job hunting in NYC? I think he is.
