This from lonerwolf.com:
“Essentially, a Gaslighter spins their negative, harmful or destructive words and actions in their favor, deflecting the blame for their abusive deeds and pointing the finger at you.”
Thus, in your original comment, you referred to some SDA’s as “disgusting and embarrassing” which I find disgusting and provocative and said so, in not so many word.
Then, in your response to my voicing those objections, and questioning your skills as a scientist, you insist I must be joking and tried to imply that my comment was intentionally deceptive and essentially provocative.
IOW, if there’s anything text book here, it is your behavior.
Similarly, it seems to me more likely that your speechlessnesses is the result of having been called out for your remarks combined with the fact that you don’t have a rational defense.
Further, for another commentator to say that my indignation is “feigned” is a text book example of “piling on” and shows the “echo chamber” effect of someone suffering from confirmation bias.
As I’ve mentioned many times previously, I am no longer an SDA.
However, while I asked to be disfellowshipped on philosophical and moral grounds, and not due to my distaste for the actions of any person or group of people, I will say that I’ve seen nothing in the Spectrum comments section to make me question my decision to move on or believe that things are anything other than “gaslighting business as usual” within the extant denomination.
