Me thinks you have gotten too big for your britches, Mr. Roberson. Trying to psychoanalyze me makes you feel bigger, better, does it?
See...there you go again, almost right on cue. I haven't psychoanalyzed you; I've simply observed repetitive behavior.
For the record, my husband IS "clergy", and doesn't claim the title for income. He is both a part-time paid preaching minister and a full-time paid hospital chaplain and hospice chaplain.
I am at a loss to understand why you keep bringing up your husband. This discussion isn't about him, is it?
He obtained the license to help people, not to earn a fat living.
Good for him.
(Care to reveal your annual salary?)
Since you didn't reveal yours, no. This is another topic you keep bringing up. This discussion isn't about income, is it?
I'll not continue this conversation with you.
Your choice, but I doubt it.
It contains lies,
Demonstrate three lies I've uttered - or are we talking about you and your "you have to have a Ph.D. to be a pastoral counselor?" Or maybe your "you're not a Christian counselor." or maybe your "my husband is one." or even maybe your "..some states don't recognize it because....they do not believe that religion/spirituality and counseling should be mixed. "
All of which are either demonstrably incorrect, or don't tell the whole truth so as to leave an impression that isn't warranted.
is harmful and slanderous.
Demonstrate how I've done this - or again, are you talking about you?
Anyone who depends on Wiki for proof...
I made specific mention that I used a Wiki article and said 'take it for what it's worth.' Perhaps you missed that disclaimer while you were seeing red again. In any event, the article provided sufficient information that if you wanted to run the assertions to ground, you could easily do so. Did you, or did you simply object to Wiki? Do I need to do more of the research you should do, or do you think you could handle that on your own?
And spends time trying to discredit others who dedicate their lives to helping others...
about your husband. That explains quite a lot actually - all this defensiveness. I've never talked about your husband other than to say that I think he does a good work. What I have said about the NCCA is that their license isn't recognized as a license by any state, and that the schools they choose to include in their "approved" list aren't accredited to the same level as "regular" degree-granting institutions and programs. Those two basic assertions seem to really chap your [skin].
Is this one of your slanderous comments?
Do you actually even personally know anyone with an NCCA license?
Why do you keep making this personal? This discussion is about the NCCA "license" and what it actually means. Just because your husband has given some of his (read: your) not-quite-fat income to them for his "license" is quite irrelevant to the discussion of the license itself. This discussion isn't about whether people are good people or whether they're trying to do good things.
It's license snobbery.
More defensiveness. The simple fact is that the NCCA "license" isn't equivalent to a state-issued counseling license, the NCCA knows that, and in continuing to call their paper a "license" they distinguish themselves from other certifying bodies who have limited themselves to offering certifications
...or maybe this is one of your slanderous comments?
Think what you wish if it pumps you up.
I doubt it.
Luv ya anyway
