1/25 A #THREAD for @MarkBourrie to help him understand:

- The basic functions of social media

- His own misogynist slander

- The racist issue regarding promotion of White revisionist history against #Indigenous Peoples

- The folly of Small Man Syndrome & knee-jerk assumptions
2/25 I assure @MarkBourrie that I haven't deleted anything

If you visit my "tweets & replies" you'll see everything I posted, without a shred of regret or wish to conceal, rescind, or amend any part of my sentiments toward you

3/25 RE Bourrie

Your false allegation about 'heavily editing & removing material' stems from your own ineptitude at social media

Comments within threads (often called "sub-tweets") become orphaned from the main convo

A new variation of the twitter poll. This #genre specimen makes the staggering ignorance prevalent in the #Brexit debate painfully obvious.

The "screengrab of something inanely stupid" is becoming a crucial #Brexit debate #genre. Possibly (see above) because "inanely stupid" has become a prevalent Brexit position.

How to remain righteous while ignoring God's command to feed hungry, clothe naked, heal sick, welcome stranger, and otherwise bring justice/show mercy to vulnerable/marginalized persons (even tho this runs through the Bible from the Law of Moses to the life/teaching of Jesus): 1/
#1 Spiritualize "the gospel" and "salvation." Make these about individual forgiveness and private morality and life after death. (And when you see all the places in the Bible that include social justice in "the gospel" and "salvation," just ignore them - or go on to #2). 2/x
