    What a a hole that guy is, I hope he gets what he has coming to him. Karma!!!

    In hindsight I should have had a witty comeback or just rolled over his toes. This seemed perfect for this topic. It still hurts mostly because I saw him as a friend and I thought he was a good Christian guy. I'll get over it. I'm just lonely and don't have many friends to begin with especially in this new city.

    Hey, I'm no theologian, but is that what Jesus would do?

    You DO know that he is the one with the problem and not you right?


    Wow that guy makes "shallow Hal" look like a prince.

    It hurts. I know. But you are much better off without "friends" like this.

    No, maybe he would have dropped that big cross on the guys head.

    Accidentally of course.

    Who can define "normal" anyway? From a gospel/theology perspective, none of us are whole w/o Christ, including this guy. Physically, spiritually, whatever. This book is a good read if you're interested in digging in further in the context of disability.

    Regardless, that was a stupid thing for him to say. Sorry.

    Hey I just thought of one, this one was magic and inspired.

    My car stealing (from his mum), bong smoking, homosexually molestered (I strongly suspect), now clean living, new born christian buddy once hinted strongly to me that, and i quote.

    "People who are disabled did something wrong in a past life".

    lol...it's gold.

    I might be in chair through a genetic condition, I might have been pol fucking pot in a past life, but I aint no or ever have been a victim.
