But Fleetwood, imo it's possible to support the person being attacked without 
also attacking the attacker. Attacking the attacker just keeps that cycle going.

Somewhat disingenuous, don't you think, hanging the reaction to Barry's boorish 
and insulting behavior, on the sensitivity of meditators? Perhaps he resembles 
people you know, and hence no big deal. I find him sadistic, small minded, and 
kind of creepy. 
He gets exactly what he wants on here. As Edg put so succinctly, Barry is 
trolling so that others can expose his brokenness. Why that should be a source 
of amusement to anybody, is beyond me. 
I also watch him go after people I like on this forum, viciously and 
disrespectfully, who have done nothing more than offer an opinion, counter to 
that of his. A real shit, in my book. Anyone who finds this behavior witty, 
inventive, enlightened, or clever, needs another look in the mirror.

Steve, I don't mind when people confront turq one on one. But I really don't

Don't worry about it Share, it's their time they waste and Barry is probably 
chuckling to himself over his cappucino. I kn ow him well enough to know he 
loves a good tease!

Steve has lost the plot completely recently and makes no effort to think about 
what he writes, maybe he's having trouble at home and needs to escape to a 
world where he can dump on someone else? I'm just speculating because if my 
time here is ever reduced to simply gainsaying other people I'd realise it 
wasn't working and be off to the beach!

 A good question Share.
Here's the short answer.  There is a time for compassion to be shown, and a 
time to address BS head on.
I am bothered by the continual mis-perceptions Barry throws out here, and feel 
compelled to address them.
Pretty much as simple as that.
That, and the fact that I think he is mean person, with no self awareness in 
that regard.

 My conclusion too, Steve. He sounds very disturbed, in the paragraph below.

I don't think I'd discount that possibility.

Oneof the reasons I speak in such a derogatory way about God-believershere is 
that I figure after centuries of them putting down non-believersall the time 
(not to mention killing them, burning them at the stake,etc.) they should get a 
taste of their own medicine. That, and the factthat I really DO consider many 
God-believers pretty much as stupid as Isay they are. :-) 
Butevery so often, it's probably good to present the point of view of a more

than I have.Consider this my contribution to FFL in this respect...
