Answering Fools

Prov. 26:4,5 in my own words.

If someone makes a statement which is foolish, ridiculous, and stupid, don’t answer it in the same way or you will be seen as foolish, ridiculous, and stupid. Sometimes the best thing is to say nothing at all. However, if you do answer, use wisdom. By doing so, you can change the course of the conversation and it may be that the person who made the original statement might actually learn something.

  1. Roger, I would like to sign up to receive your blog articles (and probably pass some of them on to others). However, I’m not one to check for them on my own using RSS. My daughter set up our ConstitutionMythBuster blog so that those who subscribe will have the option to be automatically notified with each and every new blog, using http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-add-follow-via-email-widget.

    I think it would be to your advantage to do the same. Let me know if you decide to use this option and I’ll be the first sign up for it.

  2. Ted, I have set up a widget on this blog which you can access to receive all my posts via e-mail. I am still feeling my way forward with this, so if it doesn’t work properly, please let me know. Thanks for your interest.
