|I took this in Rome 3 years ago, the Pope usually does a public appearance in Vatican Square on Sunday morning.|
I reached my limit of being nice and snapped at one of my high school classmates on FB the other day. He posted political opinion from Fox, then started arguing with anyone who commented saying they thought it was faux news. I commented, "when you post something like this and then start arguing with anyone who disagrees, you are being an @$$. Be nice." He had done this three weeks ago, I had actually put him on a 30-day hiatus on FB, then his wife posted on FB that he was back in the hospital (he is seriously ill and going to die one of these days) and I undid the suspension. He responded that he was just exercising his first amendment rights - he was, but he was also purposefully inciting people so he could stir the pot.
I felt bad about calling him out. He has a right to post his misguided political opinions, to express his internalized self hatred.
I should try to be better than.
But even the Pope has a breaking point, and yes the Pope felt bad about it and apologized.
Should I apologize?
