She has a point, dekeguy. The quote function is much easier to follow than your method. Your posts are ridiculously obnoxious to read simply due to the way they're presented.

Ah, the shrill tone of emotional overload. You know very well that my point is it is necessary to view Christianity through the lens of two thousand years and not just a very narrow aspect of opinion which may or may not have specific validity but lacks general validity.

Spare me the indignation. Your established track record of vitriol speaks volumes.

Dekeguy is being a defensive Christian. Defensive Christians are extremely annoying and unnecessary for the world's largest religion that (along with other religions) has been used by humans to justify atrocities like forms of slavery and involuntary servitude, racism, sexism, and religious intolerance.

There's no shrill here, but thanks for the gendered insult. It's not necessary to view anything through 2,000 years. Sorry. 2,000 years don't cancel out the horrible shit that's been done (and is still being done) in the name of Christianity. You may wish it so, but that does not make it so.

This is not exclusive to Christianity. If one cannot view their own religion through a critical lens, they're being blinded.

Preach.

LOL. This isn't entertaining enough to be a GC Race War.

It's not a race war until someone's [insert race] card has been taken away.

Guys and Gals,

I'll have to pick this up tomorrow. I have a Skeleton Argument to file tomorrow and I need to get it ready for submission.

I hate it when people try to earn points because of their profession. If it's important to the discussion, then fine, bring it up. But to bring it up just for the sake of being a braggart - poo on you.

I took Iota Man's Black Card pages ago for his lack of consciousness.

Not only that, announcing departure is stupid. Just go away and come back when you have time to post. That is what the rest of us do. Dekeguy probably thought that we cared and would take his silence as avoidance.

This isn't a chat room - people could not respond for days and I'd never think anything of it. It's not like I know whether or not someone is online.

So strange. But it's cool, I'm "shrill" I guess now. I guess that's better than a ball-busting bitch.

Can he earn it back for calling out something that actually was foul as hell?

Also, and I'm just going to edit because I'm the last post in the thread currently, thank you for the paragraph breaks, Andre Turner!

Yes, absolutely. Announcing departure = message board fail. And he probably would assume that we perceive his silence as avoidance.

How is one "shrill" in type anyway?
Still, as a spectator, I think I'd prefer to see a ball-busting bitch in action as opposed to someone simply being shrill. smh. Shrill. How boring.

I'm not 100% sure but apparently falling on the side of "this is accepted as historical fact" and owning a uterus makes one shrill?

I'm sorry - we're going by the 2,000 year old Christian lens, here, I don't actually own my own uterus. My dad does. When live-in and I get married, he will own it. This is the Christian tradition, no? 2,000 years old? I will accept no newer truths than 2,000 years old.

I have to leave this thread, click on another thread, and eventually log off to do life things. In the meantime....

He can earn it back if he displays a familiarity with what Andre Turner is saying.
