Why are some people so damn ignorant? It’s like, really you thought about it and still thought you should say that? Really???
The reason for my annoyance is due to an ad I just read on craigslist.org, a website I go on religiously. I go to find vintage items, or writing gigs and just for the sheer curiosity of knowing what other people give away.
Anyway, there was an ad for a free Spanish Bible and some jackass felt the need to reply to the post. Was his response beneficial to anyone, you may ask? No. It was not. He, for one reason or another, felt that he should share his dumb-ass opinion with the craigslist community.
What did he have to say? I tried to post it here but it was flagged, of course. In a nut shell, he said that the bible as in English and that GOD only replied to prayers in English. Stating that prayers in Spanish were marked as "spam" and that he knew that for a fact.
Like I said, dumb-ass. It annoyed me sooo much, that I felt the need to post MY opinion. here’s what I posted.

Regarding your uneducated response to God speaking only English…blah blah blah.
If you weren’t so caught up in being prejudice against Spanish culture, than you might discover that God a.k.a. Jesus spoke Hebrew and the Bible was originally made up of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew gospels. Given that those were the dominant languages during his time. Which is why the original gospels have been translated into so many, later developed languages, including English. And in case you didn’t know, he was also Jewish.
So before you try to be little other people, read up on the subject so maybe next time you won’t look like an ass.
