Occasionally people on social media will try to pressure me into sharing a particular post that they are passionate about. Their position basically boils down to this: You can’t really hate cancer, or love Jesus, etc. unless you pass along my brilliant words of wisdom.
I disagree with that. Furthermore, I think that there are too many people who think that they have served Jesus and their fellow humans simply by clicking on “Share” and then refusing to otherwise lift a finger to ever help anyone else.
I recently received a rather heavy-handed suggestion (threat?) that I pass along a particular public service announcement. The implication was that if I did not share this wonderful post with all my friends my heart could not possibly be in the right place. What was the topic of this post? Bullying! I kid you not!
Please tell me you see the irony.
