being christian at christmas

How some people define the spirit of the Christmas season in West Vincent baffles me.

Please see below as another one of those nasty and pathetic missives is making the rounds. I was told this was found on a Ludwig’s Village community bulletin board.

West Vincent is such a beautiful place, but it’s like it has a rotten core, doesn’t it? This is unfortunately still a place with a handful of pious hypocrites who claim to “love thy neighbor” yet do things like this and isn’t that terrible? These people give the really nice people who live in this Chester County community a bad name and I think that is truly awful don’t you?

Being a Christian isn’t faux piety, it’s actually living what you preach. A lot of these people preach a good game, but are some of them really good neighbors? My opinion is the answer is a resounding no. Normal, emotionally healthy people do not do things like this to other people.

One day those of you who do things like this to your neighbors will find yourselves in a time of trouble. Will people lift a hand to help you? Or will they say “we’ve had enough of those bullies” and turn their backs?

People who do things like this during the most holy season of the year are held in the highest contempt by me.

Also it may appear contradictory, but I do actually pity these people for their meanness. They are missing out on so much in life by hating.

This man who is being victimized has run good and honest businesses for years. He and his wife are the kind of people that would give you the shirt off their back no matter what you had done to them. They are truly good people. I am proud to call them friends. We have used him professionally in addition.

If I were in this gentleman’s shoes, I would take all these missives to law enforcement. And a TV station or two.

I don’t know why it is that some people are not content unless they make other people unhappy. They should be ashamed of themselves. The sad thing is, I know they are not. However I believe karma is a very, very real thing. Everything that goes around eventually comes back around.

To the rest of you I say it is Christmas, so if you see one of these missives floating around West Vincent pull it down and give it to the police and tell them where exactly you found it and what day and what time.

It is time for this to stop.

If you know the people who are doing these things, it’s time to stand up and tell them to stop. Or call them out publicly. (Cowards like this hate having a light shined on them even if they secretly crave the attention.)

Christmas is but a few days away. Let’s get back to the real reason for the season, shall we?

Thanks for stopping by today.

  1. This is outrageous. I have heard nothing but good things about this man mentioned. Who wrote this? It should be taken down….it is slander. Whoever wrote this is cowardly and irresponsible for not signing this. Someone needs to take the lead and take this off the bulletin board. Any perceived complaint should have been settled with the man involved anyway — the business of the plowing was only ever between two parties!

    • You are correct. He is a lovely and honorable person who has always been a hard worker. Last year shortly after Christmas he landed in the hospital and almost died. While he was in intensive care, the nonsense was still persisting.

      This man’s only crime was making the mistake of standing up to corrupt politics. Since that point in time it has been a vendetta to destroy him. This notice was taken down but will crop up undoubtedly in different forms in different locations. In the past they have even dropped anonymous letters in people’s mailboxes.

      There will always be a special place in hell for people who do despicable things like this. Thank you for speaking up.
