We are in contact with a retired pastor who has a successful Christian newsletter who is now about 80 years old. His name is Papalou(1). He wrote in one of his ezines the following which to me displays an excellent attitude, ? Some have sent some "nasty" emails when they unsubscribe. I will not repeat them here. ... One went as far as using profanity! However, that doesn?t bother me. I spent five years in the Marine Corps during WWII, and you can?t use any profanity that I haven?t heard. I just feel sorry for them and I pray for them. That is what my Lord taught me to do. I just say "Forgive us of all our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us." ?
