    Simple question, with several different responses about Paul Deen and her fall from public grace!

    Would/should you forgive her?

    Jeshua said if you don't forgive your enemies or them that do you wrong-- Yah will NOT forgive you----------------------------------------------

    if you have been truly forgiven by Yah---its easy to forgive---Because you have been forgiven.

    but most reflects that ole hatred and vengeful attitude towards folks--and those that don't love your brother whom you can see---HOW can you love Yah which you cannot see ?????????????????????????

    Something every so called Christian says they know--but their attitudes reflect that they DONT know and that the Love of Yah is NOT even in them!!

    Then they will do it out of self Righteousness and not from true Love...........

    My desired response wasn't on the list... Who Cares.

    Not disparaging the OP as this is a hot topic right now, but seriously... who cares. I cannot speak to the salvific condition of Ms. Dean, so all I can say is that her admitted behavior reinforces the beliefs of those who live outside the south that those people who do, especially those who are Christ-Followers, are at some level prejudiced/bigoted/racist in our thinking.

    Seriously, people need to grow up and stop playing the victim.

    I suspect this is only about a quick dollar to be made by the supposedly-offended.

    I care - and what I care about is the hypocrisies of those who are making such an issue out of it.

    see at the attitudes that I spoke about-- if Paula was sincere in her apology and with folks like these attitudes were around her--Yeshua would be dis-honered by their actions and she would see something that would turn her off to Yeshua :tear::tear::tear:

    As written, except for the weepy-faces, this makes no sense.

    Remember, edit before posting. Only you can prevent ambiguity. ;)

    I don't see why they made such a big deal over what she said in her past.

    What is so sad is people getting upset over her using the N word in her past, when they don't mind using itin current movies. I saw a preview earlier this week where the word was used. They say it is used over 100 times throughout the movie.
