I Am Not Here to Preach to the Choir Alone

Best Facebook wall post of 2010, from my Facebook friend Anthony Damiano:

Let me explain something to all of you. I am not here for a popularity contest or to preach to the choir alone. I will not abide by people attacking others on my pages for any reason. Just because someone is not vegan you will not attack them on my page or those I moderate. You frighten away people I am trying to reach because of a "holier than thou" attitude & I will remove you myself.

If offending judgmental pricks in the vegan community is required in order to create a constructive dialog with omnivores about animal products, I’ll happily do it every time.
