Featured What an incredibly odd thing to say. But then again, he's the Pope.

    He won't "hate" Christians in rival denominations. This may be you projecting: some Protestants do seem to hate the pope.

    You need to read the context. The book - and the conversation - in question are about the attacks on the pope by conservative American Catholics.

    Thank you. I did not know the meaning of "bite me", saw it once in a movie and the girl used it in a bit "provoking but still nice way".
    Now I looked it up, and seems to mean something entirely different then what I meant. I should have looked it up in advance

    Bite me is typically used as a US idiomatic expression of discontent or annoyance with another party
    ("it's just my opinion; if you don't like it, bite me!")

    In a way I used the correct word maybe. I had this incidence in mind. Once My Master came in my dream and told me to stay outside. I thought .. just a dream, not real. So I went in to his Ashram anyway. 20.000 people, He walked straight up to me, started yelling like crazy and kicked me out. I could not believe this to be true. I never did something wrong. So my mind thought "He is testing me if I have fear of Him". I went 3 times and got kicked out 3 times. He meant business. All people asked me "My God, what did you do wrong, we have never seen the Master so mad". But in a way, all this attention from my Master was nice and useful. Better than just being there and being totally ignored. I learned good lessons in short time.

    So I guess in this example "bite me" was quite okay, or not? My Master was really discontent and annoyed (or played it very well)

    Is it always so negative, when used? Can it not be used in a playful/sexually way, when a girl uses it in a teasing way? I got that feeling from a film

    I did not double check the word and I used "bite" because I was talking about the Pope, remembering @PopeADope who has Spiders as His Teachers and enjoying them to bite him. As I remember @PopeADope telling me, that he loves to exchange bodily fluids with Goliath (his Tarantula). My Master was a bit like his Goliath, exposing all my fear and shortcomings.

    I hope my Goliath birdeater enjoys to bite me as much as I enjoy it. ;)

    I guess I should attempt to refrain myself a bit less, then.

    I hardly make any secret of how difficult it is for me to consider what is generally considered right wing as valid expression of political opinion.

    In truth, I am not always convinced that their voices want to be taken as valid.
