Moratorium on one trick pony threads and posts.

If you want to test it out by creating a bunch of new threads trashing Trump's policies,

She seemed pleased that I posted a critique of Trump's ICE policy, which emphasizes rounding up law-abiding illegal aliens, at the expense of getting the dangerous criminals deported, rather than attributing it to his character or lack of it.

So that's what I'll do. And I'll avoid talking about how sleaze fits in.

Sherman said you can trash Trump all you want on a Liberal or Atheist site, but that you need to stop trying to turn TOL into a "trash Trump" site.

If you want to test it out by creating a bunch of new threads trashing Trump's policies, Sherman may give you a vacation from TOL to think about how you got that wrong.
Stop warning him.
Let him rip!

There is just waay too many threads and posts on here assassinating his character. Other politicians haven't been attacked the way he has.

Really? There weren't dozens and dozens of threads created about how Obama was supposedly Kenyan, Muslim, gay, or any number of things? I seem to recall a period when there was a constant stream of threads linking WND articles and similar making such claims.

Must have been a different TOL.

He is free to express his displeasure at policies in threads he starts himself, but the threads and posts attacking his moral character are what the moratorium applies to. These things are blown way out of proportion and it not up for debate. There was never quite the volume of threads about the theories concerning Obama. That is why there was never any action taken on them. They didn't take over the forum. And, folks, please don't pop into every thread expressing your displeasure at the president.

What 'moral character'? He's a serial adulterer. So much for Christian conservatives actually standing up for morals now that a GOP president is exposed as a real scumbag.

What a great way to attract conservatives to the board.

If I had a pony that could do just one trick, I'd be ecstatic.

I try to harmonize both wings seeing they are attached to the same corporate bird/buzzard, following a circular flight pattern depending on which way the wind blows the droppings leave their skull and bones jet stains on the tomb of the Republic.

Our politicians are merely reflection of our society. All that we say about them could be said about you and me too. There are no exceptions to this principle. There are none who can rightly claim to be paragons of virtue.

The current one trick pony threads are ones attacking the character of our current President. 70 percent of the recent threads in this section are on that very topic. That is too much. I am going to kindly ask the four parties that dwell on this subject to take it back to your liberal and atheist boards if you want to continue to discuss it. This is a conservative website designed to attract mainly conservative traffic. TOL is not to be a clearing house for threads that attack the character of the POTUS. There is enough of that elsewhere. You are welcome to discuss other political issues and policies, The character assassination is going to stop. We didn't do it Obama on a huge scale like this.

I will be handing out infractions to people that disrupt running threads with this topic as well. Enough is enough. Those that spam with cartoons on this subject may find themselves removed as a spammer. Please quit wasting TOL's bandwidth and stretching the threads with these posts.
America has never had a President who
********************************************
- refused to condemn the Russiana for their repeated hostile actions
- failed to take measures to prevent further Russian interference in the 2018 Interims
- has been the subject of nondisclosure agreements and payments designed to silence porn stars
- been the subject of repeated lawsuits concerning alleged affairs
- arranged to have FBI Directors and Deputy Directors fired for failing to take loyalty oaths
- required White House employees to sign nondisclosure agreements
- attached the credibility of the mainstream American media by characterizing it as "fake news"
- publicly demanded that the Attorney General take action against his political adversaries
- resort to the use of aliases (David Dennison)
- fail to appoint officials to key appointments (ie Ambassador to South Korea)

In short, this President is not performing many of his Constitutional duties, while many of his policies are at odds with "conservative" thinking!

As for his morality, it is the very antithesis of what Christ has taught us to believe, and any attempt to blind eye and/or align itself with this individual makes TOL an "enabler!"

Please explain how it is possible, from a Christian perspective, to discuss Donald Trump's words and actions and not be critical of his character?

Looking for a 'loophole' regarding the moratorium, huh? You're just aching to do some 'Trump bashing, right?

Do you really think you can ARGUE your way into forcing the moratorium to end?

4. Thou SHALL NOT call other TOL members names without cause. Appropriately identifying the wicked is not only allowed but encouraged. Again, TOL is a right-wing Christian forum and therefore our bias is not hidden.

Perhaps TOL needs to revise its 4th Commandment - are we only "encouraged" to "identify" the words and actions of those on the left-wing as "wicked," while the morality of those on the right-wing get a free pass?

If Donald Trump was a Democratic President instead of a Republican one, would TOL have any reservations "allowing and encouraging" its members when it comes to "identifying" the "wickedness" of his infidelities and association with porn stars?

As things now stand, one's political affiliation has become the determining factor as to which words and actions can be "identified" as "wicked" - is TOL sending the message that come Judgement Day, Christians will find that God is biased in favor of conservatives over liberals?

He who pays the piper calls the tune. As I read it this is a Republican leaning site. So they can have whatever rules they wish to impose on any users. At least they have declared where their sympathies lie. If you still want to thump Trump then they say ,'go elsewhere'. That is fair enough.
