Need insight concerning a snobby lady...

  • I often frequent a blog by Thomas Beale, "Vox Day."  His wife, "Spacebunny," who moderates the comments section, decided Laramie should be "tewtelly pw3d," and acted like a pissy snob in response to everything I posted.  

    In the end, no matter how many times I tried to explain, clarify, make peace, or whatever, she continued to show no signs that she is nothing than a dumb turd who hates Catholics.  I did my best not to retort with any name-calling or any of that, though I did call her a bigot at some point, and mocked her in the end.  

    Anyone wanna take a look at the "exchange" and give a bit of feedback on what happened this week?  I'm looking for more insight, as I am not a professional apologist.  Just a guy who is scratching one blog off his favorites list.  

    Here's the link:

    I suppose it is just sometimes hard to realize that there are people out there who are as awful as that.

  • Don't bother with her. Your posts were good. She's being mean-spirited.

  • Pearls before swine. She's either an ex-Catholic or Orthodox or both. Both groups seem to have the most blind animosity towards the Church. Her egregious lack of charity betrays the condition of her soul.

    Sounds like a board of libertarians who see political ideology as more important than religious truth. Just an observation.

  • I just couldn't understand why she wasn't comprehending anything I said.  

    And, the more diplomatic I was, the more insulting she returned.

    Yeah, she's truly an ugly personality, and her tone is insufferably pompous and pseudo-intellectual.  I couldn't even read the whole exchange because I was too disgusted.  You did a good job, though, as did the poster "Holla."  I say you should wipe the dust off your feet and move on.  She doesn't seem to have the ears to hear.

    Yeah, that shows that she is in the power of the devil.  Don't sweat it.

    It would not surprise me if she was a convert to Eastern Orthodoxy from some form of Protestantism. I say this not because there aren't anti-Catholic(ism) EOs in Orthodox countries, but because by converting to Orthodoxy she can still maintain her anti-Catholicism.
    Pray for me, always.

  • Are you sure they are Orthodox? I was picking up a big Jewish vibe in the comment section.
    Laramie, you can't fight them with words and logic and win. So don't blame yourself.

    But good points made by Karl Denninger.
