First things first, I would like to make a public announcement that my article Average Joe Liberal's Bleeding Heart Dilemna was not about bashing liberals! The point of the article was to ask the question of how does a person with extraordinary ideals cope when his or her ordinariness doesn't match the level of his or her extraordiniary ideals. That was the point!
Recently, I started blasting my articles across the internet with an article submission service that lists my articles in all the top article driven websites. I think that perhaps I should be more careful next time what I submit since new readers don't have the long history with me. One man, after reading the article actually compared me to Ann Coulter! For those of you who don't know Ann Coulter, Coulter is a far right verbal bomb thrower that makes Rush Limbaugh look like Mr. Rogers.
You can view the man's comment about my article here.
I explained to the man that those who read my blog would know that the Average Joe bleeding heart liberal was me! I then asked him to view my blog to see if I was telling the truth. I challenged him to read "Stories from the West Bank" and then see if he arrived at the same conclusion. Apparently, the individual "perused" my blog, saw Pete's comment on my Average Joe article and concluded that this blog is about me (the Ann Coulter wannabe) poking fun at non-conservatives.
To set the record straight. For those of you who read my blog consistently, am I the next Ann Coulter or am I a struggling Christian trying to navigate myself in a morally complex world?
