TURN OFF YOUR PHONE

my point is when someone's phone vibrates you don't know if they have it on for a legit reason.  i mean there are serious reasons a phone would need to be on.  such as a paramedic/firefighter who works 24 to 48 hours straight.  they may have to attend mass on duty and need the phone on because if there is an emergency in the area they need to respond.  

 

my point is, there are legit reasons why someone needs their phone on silent in church.  now most people don't need their phone on but a few do.  so unless your going to ask each person why their phone is on silent, don't just assume something bad about them.

 

also if the buzzing phone bothers you that much i can't imagine what you think about the family with multiple young children in mass.  they are a lot louder and more distracting then a phone on silent and its just buzzing.

If you go back and read what I said, I acknowledge the need for serious cases. But I don't think it applies to most people.

My point is, if you are having problems being distracted by your phone for innocuous reasons, then you should turn it off. I'm not assuming anyone's character or situation by stating that. I seriously doubt anyone receiving an urgent message is going to keep dawdling with their phone like they're in a nightclub. My post applies to casual phone usage. I thought that was understood, but apparently not. If I haven't stated it clearly enough before, I am stating it now. 

All you are doing is repeating what you already said in your previous post, and we are now just going to be talking in circles at this point. In fact we probably could have found some common ground on the subject, only for whatever reason you felt the need to resort to a personal attack on my character, which was completely unnecessary and way out of line.

You seriously are in no place to lecture me on assuming the worst about other people when you have just done the EXACT same thing to me with regards to your insinuation about how I view children and large families at mass.

Children have been a part of worship for centuries, unlike phones, so don't suggest that I view those matters in same light, because I don't.

personal attack?  i have no clue how you took anything i said as a personal attack.  it was not meant as one and I have no clue how you took it that way.  but since i've been warned, i am not going to post any further in this thread.

Your insinuation that I somehow had a problem with large families and children at mass was very offensive and an attack on my character.

It's probably best this thread just die a slow death.
