Table Talk

BY Mike S Apostol

Facebook is one invention that revolutionized the life of human beings in the universe. It shortened the distance of countries through communication, because with just a click of a button, you can talk to a friend, do business and communicate abroad which took days and weeks before the advent of Facebook. You can also find long lost friends anywhere in the world with this social media . But, in all these windfall of modernity in this cyberspace age, it has its brouhaha.

Some Facebook account holders abuse their privilege in the Facebook communication. They download in their Facebook account pictures of sick and almost to die people or pictures of disabled individuals, without hands and legs or stories of people, tortured “black and blue” or bizarre accounts of people cruelly treated, injured and manhandled, etc.etc. pictures that awaken your humane senses to pity and sympathy. There is nothing wrong with their volunteerism to arouse your emotions, what makes it bad and distasteful, it curses and  threatens you, of “five or seven years of bad luck, to those who will not say “like” or “amen” or “share” on their unwanted benevolence.

Cursing is against the Law of God or Allah and anybody who curses is actually cursing themselves. Why force someone to follow your emotions and wishes and at the same time curse them if they don’t succumb? Who are you ? God or Allah?. Try pointing your finger at someone and you will note that three fingers are pointing at you, so the curse is more on you and not on somebody else.

Table Talk has so many Facebook friends because I enjoy reading their posts, comments, contributions, jokes, information and new ideas but definitely I am against messages of doom. They are the bane of enlightened humanity. Besides not all Facebook close friends are close and long time acquaintance of yours and some are total strangers. But you treat them as part of your close knitted friends. For them to send you  mind boggling messages destroys your day and makes you think he is unfriendly.

Charity for sympathy into someone’s misery  is supposed to be given heartily and sincerely. But for someone to brusquely force you to “cough up” your personal decision to agree with him is like a neighborhood bully who gets what he wants but makes himself the enemy of a friendly neighborhood. Reminder to Facebook friends: Ask the friendly way and don’t play God and curse those who do not agree with you because only God or Allah can decide the destiny of men. Good luck to you Facebook friends.

Scoop: One message from a Facebook friend is a pitiful picture of a Syrian child refugee in  Europe hungry, haggard and visibly sick but what made it disagreeable is the FB friend cursed of 50 years of bad luck to those who will not “like” “Agree” or “Share. Even without that curse, Table talk will gladly show sympathy to the child refugee. But to threat you of half a century of bad luck is not a laughing matter. It is food for thought. Many will outlive the bad luck and probably many will die a pauper if God or Allah grants the FB friend his wish. Agree or disagree, my personal opinion on your distorted outlook of destiny.
