Is that someone who only eats the back of the chicken or does it mean something else?
Brother Ankhur ... i thot it meant someone who smiles in folks faces, then talks about them behind their backs.
Same as "Backstabber".
Just as Sister Destee says.
These two definitions explain it well.
 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
Sister Cherry ... thanks for the above ... i had no idea that word was in the Bible.
In the Spirit of Sankofa and Truth!
Brother Ankhur or Putney Swope,
Do you accept the understanding provided by these sincere people concerning the term backbitter, or was it just sarcasm on your part?
Be careful how you answer, if you so choose, because either way you answer, would be quite revealing. For example, to not know the meaning says a lot, and if it was sarcasm, this otherwise discredits all of the hard work you have done here, so far, in my opinion.
You're very welcomed, Sister Destee.
more then that dear heart, it is those that post nasty remarks and bear grudges on fellow members
and post only when they think that person has left or logged off,
Separate names with a comma.
