I regularly read blogs which express extreme opinions about both ‘sides’ in the various debates that are going on within the Anglican church at the moment. I find that the websites portraying extreme liberal and extreme conservative positions are amongst the best sources available to give me the material I need in order to do my drawings.
I find that the persuasiveness of any individual site depends largely upon the way that they put their message across. If you express your views aggressively and without respect for your opponents as fellow human beings I will be quite likely to dismiss your opinions and, for repeated offenders, your RSS feed.
Some of these websites hide behind humour as a way to make their aggressive point. Sorry, but you do not fool me.
I suspect though that sometimes I am as guilty of these crimes as the next weblogger. Feel free to give me a knowing look in the comments when that is the case.
Apologies that today’s drawing is rubbish. I, like my fellow tax returnees, am devoting my energy today to my paperwork.
Update: Apologies that todays post appeared and then disappeared. There seems to be some sort of bug in the latest WordPress that makes a post automatically and suddenly mark itself ‘private’ for no reason at all a while after it is written. This has happened a couple of times now since I upgraded and never before then. I’ll look into it. … 5 minutes later… It seems that I am not alone.
