Below is a conversation I had on the FAIR page on Facebook. I’ve deleted the identity of the person I was speaking with because I haven’t received his permission to identify him here — you will see him say that he’s copied this to his note, and he has not requested permission to identify me as of now. I am posting it because I’m more than a little perplexed by what went on. I see me responding to what he’s saying, at least a little of it, with some substance, and receiving insults and attacks in response. I’m quite sure he sees something almost the opposite of that. So I’m looking to see if I’m totally crazy here, or if he comes across as a rather rambly whack-job to other people as well.
Please note that I’m not looking for agreement or disagreement about what either of us are saying. I would rather not have the Mormon folks around here attacking the guy because he’s anti-Mormon, and I’d rather not have folks taking his side because they also think Mormonism is a cult. I’m more interested in finding someone who can explain this conversation to me. He annoyed me, and I clearly pissed him off in a serious way, and I don’t see him bringing specific things for me to respond to in any amount, and he doesn’t see me doing that either.
I must admit that my initial responses were humorously dismissive, but I don’t see him complaining about that, so I don’t think that was a conversation-foul. But I’m open to contrasting views about that. Or much of anything other than the content of the conversation.
