        ...which makes me wonder why, exactly, you removed mine. They were on-subject, non-disruptive, and, better yet, accurate.

        Whatever makes you feel better, Kett.

          I guess you never read the forums description:

          Exclusively Christian Theology: This forum is exclusively for those who consider themselves Christian and consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God.

          Do you consider yourself christian and consider the bible to be the inspired word of God?

          and then in there is the first sticky that says new rules for that forum written in 2004 :

          http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...16&postcount=1

          And here is the part about non believers there:

          Therefore...
          The new standard for the "Exclusively Christian Theology" is to allow anyone to post here who considers themselves to be Christian and considers the Bible to be inspired by God.

          Yes that creates a much bigger tent, but that's a good thing for healthy debate!

          So... if you consider yourself a Christian and you consider the Bible to be the inspired word of God then you are welcome to post in the "Exclusively Christian Theology" forum.

          Furthermore...
          We are also willing to let any other unbeliever or follower of another religion post here if they are honestly seeking an answer to a question or have constructive input to the discussion. In other words... if an atheist has a question about God and he asks it in an honest, upfront way we will gladly deal with that question without booting him out of the forum.
          Not room for sad witty mocking comments, sorry granite.

            Reported Post by zippy2006

            zippy2006 has reported a post.

            Reason:
            This seems illegal according to the precedent set by these infractions: 1) Calling someone an idiot, 2) Calling someone a Mega Turd, 3) Inferring stupidity, 4) Saying someone has an IQ of 45.

            I do not see how "blovating doofus" is better than any of the above.

              Just seems very unnecessary.

                  I used the link to give IK some rep.
                  Jesus saves completely. http://www.climatedepot.com/ http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

                  Titus 1

                  For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

                  Ephesians 5

                  11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

                        Barbie earned it. He's always on the attack with his posts. Read the rules again. It's name calling without cause.

                            I do call people names when it is earned. I do it sparingly. It has more impact that way.

                              On the contrary. I was going by your definition of "gutter snipe":

                              It's textbook by your definition. You made a personal attack rather than show how the poster was wrong. You "gutter-sniped". It's OK of course. It should be allowed and sometimes even encouraged. It's a part of what makes TOL fun; clever insults.

                              Reason was given for name-calling (of a non-poster to boot). Notice the argument at the end.

                              It's all in good fun, Inzl. It's clear that you'll do what you want while disregarding any semblance of consistency. I'm sure we'll all adapt and get a long just fine.

                              I cannot help if it entertains, however
