What do you say to the bloviator who has no facts

What do you say to a bloviator who has never done his or her homework

Dick B.

Here’s my response to a kindly writer who’s wondering what to say to a complainant who can’t back up his criticisms:

“There'a a jerk online that says "you are the most biased writer" it's all your opinion of aa history. When I was in seminary and wrote research papers they were to be footnoted and all sources cited . Your work is heavily noted and cited. Do you have another way to gently deflect such ignorant ranting ? Yours In Christ Rev Joe Brooks

Dick B.:

Thank you, Joe. Our work comes from 22 years of careful research and documentation and footnoting. Today we only answer courteous and relevant inquiries. But we do point people to A.A.'s own Conference-approved literature first and ask if the complainant has done his homework and read the material. Beyond that, the Adversary is the great Accuser and Father of lies. And there is a saying that a lie gets half way around the world before the truth has time to get its shirt on. Please keep in touch. We need you, and so do the suffering souls who want God's help just as early AAs did. In His Service, Dick www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com
