-Are you a God?
- they asked the Buddha.
- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?
- No.
- Then what are you?

Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Anyone who isn't with me opposes me.... Paraphrase of Chris Clarke comment

I just nuked a comment from a climate change denialist. I don’t want that crap here. Take it somewhere else. This is a reality-based website.

"Anyone who isn't with me opposes me, and anyone who isn't working with me is actually working against me"  Luke 11:23
Quoted from the New Living Translation Bible.... This should be in big print on Chris Clarke's blog Coyote Crossing.  Then we'd all know where we stand, agree or move along, quickly.
A blog Coyote Crossing was recommended by a friend, I checked it out and decided to comment on a comment that had been made to a post called Last Summer in Ivanpah. I found out a very important thing, I'm not going to call Chris Clarke the type that hates those who disagree with, or challenge, his point of view.  I'll let his own words, in the first paragraph above speak for him.  Clearly he is unwilling or unable, to tolerate those who disagree, even slightly. This can easily be seen during even a casual reading of the comments he allows.
But, it is his blog, and he is allowed to use any criteria to determine who he does, or doesn't, allow to express an opinion. In his case, the only opinions allowed are those of his fans and cohorts, if you dare to express disagreement...well you see above the result. I fully expect that I'm offending my friend, who is a fan, and cohort, of Mister Clarke, and I'm sorry for that, but unfortunately this could not go un-remarked.
