[quote:1c256pgl]Peace be with you. I can understand how angry you must feel, to run across people who are so stubborn, ignorant, and insensitive.

This is what I was going to say.
About 4 years ago I became actively engaged in online discussion forums defending the Catholic faith. I was very passionate about it, but the passion came out in a way that was probably more harmful than good.
I was always bewildered as to how people could be so ignorant about Catholicism and when you show them what it’s really about they almost refuse to listen to you. This was a major source of frustration for me.
I noticed that the online forum debate thing was consuming much of my time and was causing me to be more stressed out that usual.
Online debate can become destructive at one point so it depends on how one goes about it.
This is why I set up my website to be a non-debate forum. I just think it causes too much stress and and decisiveness. Discussion of a Catholic topic is not a problem for me, but it’s when it becomes debate that I don’t like.
