Hey guys, did you know have outdated information in school textbooks is "the worst form of child abuse known!" ???

LOL, that's what someone on facebook posted.

I set her straight. Nicely and clearly, and in the end she agreed that she had misspoken.

I didn't tell her that despite her apology, I still think she's an idiot for saying something that dumb in the first place.

People seem to forget that no matter how worthy their own causes, exaggerating the issue like that is demeaning for people to whom child abuse is not just an abstract term.

I come here now, and I see lots of anger.
I don't blame anyone for that. It is perfectly understandable.
But it is not healthy for me.
So I'm going somewhere else.

Goodbye and good healing.

From the perps: You were made for this and nothing more.
From the Enemy: God will never accept you because of what you did.

Both were absolute and total lies, and I know now they are not true.
