Always Watching

Posted by: Andee / Category: , , ,


One of my pals on PostMormon.org (I go there constantly, it's amazing) has been watched by someone in his ward.

They were watching what he said on the website forum, and reported everything back to their bishop. I just can't get over it. It's like a freaking spy ring. Is this encouraged in any of the wards my readers might be in?

It pisses me off, because I know of people who have done that to me... both on this blog and other forums.

They think they are doing the right thing. Going behind someone's back, gathering thoughts and feelings about an important matter they are dealing with spiritually, and then turning them into the Mormon police. It's so shady and underhanded.

I wish I could just get past this, but I can't.

There are people I know who have read my blog and then made comments to me about things I have said. They do it in a passive-aggressive manner as to not make it obvious (or to make them feel better about it).

So, to direct my anger in a positive manner instead of calling these people out (that would get me nowhere) I am just going to exercise my thoughts like this...

Dear Scum,

I find it amusing that you feel the need to watch my every move, take note of everything I say, and report it back to Bishop-so-and-so.

Are you too scared to actually talk to me about it? Are we in kindergarten?

What were you doing on the website to begin with? Did bishop so-and-so ask you that?

Please look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if this is something God would be proud of.

Kiss my ass,
Andee

Wow. Now I feel better.

    Dont these people have enough drama in their lives? Why would they want to add do it? I just don't understand how someone can convince themselves that they are doing the right thing by spying on someone for their religion. I think that this is part of the us or them mentality that a lot of highly religous people tend to have. Get a life people!

    ARGH. This made me so mad! I can only hope it's a lurker doing it and not one of the board members.

    Very upsetting.

    I don't understand why people can't just "live and let live."

    Life would be so much better if people would learn when to mind their own business.

    I've definitely heard of this before. btw - it's not just religions (or mormonism) - but also in workplaces and other groups. You just never know who is watching/reading in this medium (the internets).
