Mind Your Manners, Yo!

Hey Everyone,

So, strangely enough, I might actually be starting the first ever W101 blog war! ;( Yeah, not cool. But it must be done...

What's my dill, you may be wondering...

Well, do you know a chap by the name of Nicholas LionRider? Yes, he's that rude guy who started Wizard War II (which, by the way, took place on Skype). He runs the blog called LionRider King (link is right here). Well, he said this in a Skype conversation: "I think church is a waste i mean it has no real purpose other then to make us waste money on bathing in filthy water". Yeah, I'm Roman Catholic in case anyone was wondering. But that's not the point...

Do you know how much this offended me? By saying this he insulted my family, my identity, my ethics, my belief, and my childhood. I mean, I know, the church does have its problems; but once again off topic. My point is, this struck me hard, and I'm not going to let some annoying little heartless creep take advantage of me.

And if that means starting Wizard War III, by all means, bring it on. No one should have to put up with that: being told their religion is a "waste of time". Going to chruch, for me, is a way to connect with the person I personally believe is my savior. You're telling me that connecting with a very important figure of mine is wasting my time?!

And this goes for any religion. He could have very well as said the same about synagogues, or mosques, or wherever you go to pray and worship. I have the right to freedom of expression and freedom of religion, and NO ONE can take that away from me.

For all my readers out there, I'd like you to take this; think about what you say before you say it. If your goal is to not anger someone, think about how this might be absorbed by people. Might people get offended? Sure, you may think it's funny, but they might not.

I'll be sure to post more about this another time. See ya in the Spiral,



  1. Everyone has their own opinion, but they have to accept other people's opinions. People who do this, just to cause trouble, are called trolls. Nicholas is a troll. Ignore him. Celebrate differences, don't make fun of them or insult them.

  2. I am not Christian, and I don't think going to church is a waste of time. This person who said that might think that, though. I don't think this is a reason to start a war.

  3. He isn't taking away your right, he is just being a jerk. Don't start it, just ignore him, like Jessica said.

  4. I am so sry maybe my blog can give you guys a new opinion

  5. Sry but jessica it doesnt make sense? you say let him keep his opinion and the next minute you calling him a troll? and ghostmancer..... Dont call him a jerk. he had his OWN conversation with a friend. k?
    give him a break its a rough time for him.
