Quote from: Cassia on October 08, 2021, 07:42:07 PMChristians don't do well here if they pretend to be atheists....I would welcome a truthful xtian for real discussions but they are in very short supply I guess.
Quote from: aitm on October 08, 2021, 07:48:52 PMLike any forum, entering with the intention of flame throwing, one gets tossed pretty quickly. We have tolerated manyâ€¦.many religious of several varieties many times for way too long. Some times to the point where our regulars start bitching. But for the most part, I think we have given many far more opportunity than we should haveâ€¦..but I am okay with that.
Quote from: Jagella on October 08, 2021, 09:30:13 PMI say bring them on! The best thing we can have here is a lot of Christians who should be told the truth.
Quote from: Jagella on October 08, 2021, 05:44:57 PMActually, I was never told why I was banned. The last time they banned me, I just asked them to change the rules to allow unbelievers greater freedom in that forum. CARM labels the members in their forum and bases what they are allowed to do on those labels. I think Matt Slick got that idea from the Germans.So why are you in favor of censorship? Do you find free speech objectionable?

Quote from: Jagella on October 08, 2021, 04:21:49 PMI was generally very respectful toward the other members there. I just have my limits as to how much rudeness I will take.
Quote from: Jagella on October 07, 2021, 08:29:19 PMI've been banned many times from Christian-sponsored forums due to my scathing critiques of Christianity in those forums. The Christians there complained bitterly about what I was saying although all of it was true and I think well-reasoned.Is it wrong to criticize Christians regarding their beliefs? Generally I think not except in cases where the criticism constitutes harassment.
Quote from: Mermaid on October 09, 2021, 11:51:56 AMI think joining a group of people explicitly to argue and try to discredit their beliefs is fundamentally disrespectful.
QuoteDid you join just to engage in argument and explain why you are right and they are wrong?
QuoteOr did you join to listen to them about their beliefs and ask questions?
QuoteSorry, you don't get any sympathy from me, that's just not ok. You can do as you wish, but don't expect different results. That's just how the world is. I strongly recommend you choose your battles more wisely if this sort of thing has you feeling put out.
Quote from: Mermaid on October 09, 2021, 07:50:39 PMOh for fucks' sake. You're comparing Christianity to Hitler? You feel the need to speak out against it to save the world from evil? I loathe being proselytized to. Your joining that forum to tell people the error of their ways is absolutely no different. It's obnoxious and disrespectful. I am 58 and kind of over peoples' shit, so maybe that will help you put things into perspective.
