My Take on Gentleness in the Real World

http://www.elizabethfoss.com/reallearning/2011/06/gentleness-in-the-real-world-1.html

I completely agree with the part of the article about: "Gentleness. Humility."

However, the girl's video was a response to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jhxYO7wr4A which is obviously some lighthearted humor, "a total throwaway song". It went viral and was posted on Aggie Catholics http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2011/02/catholic-pickup-lines-song-goes-viral.html It is about this list which started with Patrick Madrid in Envoy Magazine http://patrickmadrid.com/pats-top-ten-orthodox-catholic-pick-up-lines/ The list has been reworked, expanded, and re-posted elsewhere since then. So, if we can't have some lighthearted humor, how will we ever attract anybody to such a glum religion? I would take them more as silly, funny songs. In order to not be too judgmental, I think it is pretty easy to hear them that way.
