    The supposed kookiness of my delivery, doesn't render my arguments wrong. Easter eggs and Christmas trees are as much to do with salvation through Christ, as the religion that is associated with them. Ishtar/Easter = Pagan goddess/idolatry. Christmas trees = Pagan idolatry. Typical Christian paganism. Jesus is indeed the only way to the Father, but the way to get to the Father, through Jesus, isn't Christianity, much less American Evangelicalism.

Or perhaps you're a lone-ranger, picking and choosing whatever you feel is correct, hence that's your personal bias and doctrine. Everyone is bias and indoctrinated in one way or another, that doesn't automatically render one's beliefs incorrect. Your criticism of my views on the bases of me being indoctrinated, is flawed and of no substance.

    Arguments stand or fall on their own merits.
    No cult had any influence on my beliefs.

    I was given an infraction by Sherman, for posting the following in the politics section:



    The reason given was spamming and "False Propaganda". I can understand why staff would send me a warning, informing me that I can't post that many links in one of my posts. If your rules are that we can't post links or more than a certain amount of links, then I broke the rules. It's as simple as that. I didn't know there was a cap on the amount of links I can add to a post. Not knowing the rules or the law isn't an excuse for me breaking them, but nonetheless, one can also grant me a little mercy and give me a warning that if I do that again, I will receive an infraction. No warning was given, just an infraction for spamming and "false propaganda".

    I don't see how what I posted is false and if that is now the new standard of determining whether one receives an infraction or not, then how can we engage in an honest debate on this forum, when our opinions can willy-nilly be labeled "false propaganda" and penalized? Is this a forum for honest discourse and open debate, or are certain views here barred from the discussion? My supposed "False Propaganda" consists of American generals/high ranking members of your military and politicians, admitting that your government has directly and indirectly supported Islamic extremists. Through its "regime change projects"/wars in the middle east and elsewhere, millions of people have had their lives destroyed. They've lost their lives, their homes, their livelihoods, their dignity.

    I presented the evidence for that and if someone disagrees with what I presented, they're always free to respond with an opposing argument, refuting everything that I've said. I welcome a thorough analysis and critique of my views, and I'm not offended or angered when someone debunks my arguments. I actually appreciate it when someone presents evidence that refutes my position, because it allows me the opportunity to embrace the truth on a particular issue or at least come closer to it. Understand? So, why was I penalized by one of your staff members for simply presenting an argument, with references/links to a few YouTube videos? Thanks.

    Okay.

    So what does Trinitarian mean, exactly? Orthodox? Catholic? Pentecostal? Lost of options to choose from there.

    Yes, but when you round the basis after a home run, try not to trip.

    Ok, if I'm a communist for not supporting your government's regime change war in Syria, then you're a warmongering nazi. Your buddy Adolf Hitler is proud of you.

    I'm Biblical. How about that smarty pants? Contentious doctrinal axe grinder, is asking me questions about my belief in the Trinity, on a thread about censorship for "politically incorrect" speech.

    Everyone says they're biblical. Even JWs. Be more specific, please.

    I don't have to. I'm simply stating that I believe my beliefs regarding the Trinity agree with scripture. Is this thread now a Trinity thread? Go to the Trinity doctrine thread and go grind your doctrinal axe there with another axe grinder.
