I have to make a public apology to a couple of friends. My last post, which I’ve since removed, was not meant to out anyone, defame, or humiliate. I don’t mean to sound like the Godfather, but it wasn’t personal, it was business.
I did not ask for permission to post or quote conversations from Facebook into my blog, and my friends felt like a trust had been broken and betrayed.
I can get shortsighted in the heat of debating ideas. And though I am pretty good at separating the differences in ideas or values from the friendships I’ve formed, I can easily step over the line and hurt feelings when there was no malicious intent.
That’s no excuse for betraying a friend. And for that, I am deeply sorry. I don’t want you to regret sharing your ideas with me or challenging me. I have much to learn from all of you, so please forgive my lack of social graces. I will try to share the passion I have for Liberty and my Faith without slamming those that are closest to me going forward.
