Hey "Glanton". You are an unmitigated as#@&%e. You ,and the horse you rode in on, as well as your real persona, whomever that is.

My comments have nothing to do with religion.

Glanton, Don't post anymore on this site.

No , not trying to be a badass, just voicing an opinion.
That opinion rejects the creepy negativism this individual projects.

Normally I ignore the various resident sociopaths ---but maybe I'm in a bad mood today.

How to say this.

Gobee is telling us ( according to someone) we all will burn in agony for eternity if we do not do as we are told.

Glanton is telling Gobee he wants gobee to stop posting as he does.

Ward tells Glanton never again to use this site ( or else?).

Is there a kind person anywhere here?

Or are we all perfectly matched?

And still living in Herod's world?

If there ever was a kind god, that god has to know by now, it was all in vain.

Yeah you like this sort of thing JStan, don't you? Judging by your recent OP threads

My reaction to Glanton is long standing and does not operate in the context of some recent shitshow. Or within a misplaced and disingenuous desire to be "kind"


Go to his page and check out the photos he has posted over time on ST. ( despite the fact he has deleted some of the more egregiously offensive) After you have done so then rush back here and defend this sociopath in the context of the usual shitshow format.

I'll rephrase my earlier entreaty to Glanton :

" please ,don't post on this site"

I think you must be. Glanton could broaden his repertoire a little, maybe, but that's all.

Somehow we miss the fact we feed the things we dislike.

We bring onto ourselves the very things we most fear.

I get Jans drift as well, and i don't really fault his (her?) intent, but the only way you are to find fault with glanton's commentary yet not Go -b's is to grant Go-b's position one of sacred righteousness, but not Glantons. It is a judgement of one over the other. As far as I can tell Glanton is simply drawing a cartoon of Mohammed with bombs in his turban, and I doubt anyone here thinks thats such a big deal.

Go-b, bless his /her little heart, no doubt means well but never at any time strays from the same old trope of bible thumping, no different from koran thumping or little red book thumping, all of which is just begging for some sort of opposition. sure its (glantons) a little er, grotesque but its nothing but a little poking fun at an implied holier than thou. Maybe we're reading Go-B wrong on that point but he/she can pipe up any time to set the record straight if so

Correct. It's not pretty ,nor is it very symmetrical as a psychological or moral calculation, buuuut,
(And this is a big "but") sometimes someone's gotta do it...like taking out the trash...or the inevitable consequence is bad smells and lots of little flies.

And let me add, this failure of a few people here to catch the obvious distinction between Go-b
and this Glanton character reveals a real tone deafness in basic character appraisal---ideology and religion aside for the moment.

Jeesuz H Ward, its a little simple Mockery. We take the piss out of each other constantly here, why shouldn't Go-B expect a bit of the same, especially when there is at least a seemingly implied air of righteousness? As I said, if that righteousness is only a perception on our part, Go -B can communicate that any time. Til then..... what would you expect if you implied the same?

(And this is a big "but") sometimes someone's gotta do it

Which is exactly what Bruce expressed. We are all in fairly close agreement.


Several years ago when Gobee first started coming up with John MacArthur I researched MacArthur and immediately found him claiming a competing preacher "was not a christian." A fairly common occurrence among that sect and a very damning one. When I brought this up with Gobee I got just another blind MacArthur text.

Out of that I came up with a context for Gobee. I imagine he is four feet tall and standing at the bottom of an eight foot deep ditch. He never sees the people he is addressing.

Maybe this genius of mockery and satire was trying to make a more or less high minded point about racism when he posted this photo , as he did on several occasions---and perhaps will again with a little additional urging from his defenders:

Or maybe it was just a faint and harmless stab at humor ?

Let's see now. After the French Revolution we can expect a series of nun photos? Oh, maybe not. Pate has moved on.

This whole thing has deteriorated into an agreement.


Edit
This Marlow guy is deadly. Somehow we have to stop these heavy hitters.

True. Posters on this site, with some exceptions, really are in/or close to an unfortunately miscommunicated agreement with one another.

Problem is it's much more fun to be right and snide than to agree with anyone.

Agreement indicates an equality of thought that fails to feed the ego.
