    No, you can ask better than that. Plus both of you and everyone else could, you know, try to answer the question? Out of a general sort of respect, maybe.

    Respect, really try practicing what you preach.

    It's probably easier to show 'consistent respect' in our real life encounters. I believe this is much harder in an internet forum as we are staring at a computer screen rather than a human face.

    The Ghost has spoken wisely.

    Respect to me involves knowing myself, my friends, my enemies were all together made in the image of God. Whoever they are there is something about them that has to remind me of God. For they are made in His image.

    Respect to me involves realizing that as Christ groaned and shed His life's blood for my sins, so also He did for the other person be that one a friend or enemy.

    Respect to me involves understanding that I am not better than the other person. So as Christ died for me, so also Christ died for him or her.

    Respect for me involves remembering how much I was ignorant of Christ's love when I didn't know Him, how suspicious, how annoyed at the thought of God, how cold, how uninterested, how afraid that "God" meant to be to stop doing something fun.

    Respect involves for me knowing that I should see everyone through the eyes of Jesus Christ. It is realizing in some sense that I only love God as much as the person I love the least.

    Sometimes respect means forbearance: patient self-control; restraint and tolerance, noting that tolerance does not mean agreement, in fact, it means quite the opposite.

    I would venture to say that those like you who show respect even to those on a computer screen find it easier to do it in life as well.

    What are we to surmise about what you are like in 'real life' from your behaviour here?

    That's a joke, son. A flag waver. You're built too low. The fast ones go over your head. Ya got a hole in your glove. I keep pitchin' 'em and you keep missin' 'em. Ya gotta keep your eye on the ball. Eye. Ball. I almost had a gag, son. Joke, that is.
