...or is it Stupidly Charitable?

Great post over at Weedon's Blog on how this interwebby thing allows us to stick our noses where noses often don't rightly belong. The only thing worse than self-righteousness is long-distance, ill-informed self-righteousness. Often times, such self-righteousness is about piddly things which get overblown into all-out brawls.

I think there should be a permanent moratorium on anyone criticizing anyone else for praying with someone within 30 days after a disaster. Charity in the dazed state that people are in after such calamities often stretches limits. People send more to the Salvation Army than they can afford. People want to "give double" at blood drives.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great that we can have a world-wide chat on theological issues in the comments section of someone's blog. And I expect and accept that there will be some disagreements in such chats. But when people who do not know the parties in question make assumptions and accusations about said parties, that crosses the line. Happens a lot at LQ.
