I was not talking about AB being ran off the thread. I am talkiing about the people from a year or so ago that y'all talk about.<quoted text>
No, AB did not do anything wrong, but she did fuel the fire by fighting back. It is not that important to get upset about. I've occasionally been the target of a few jabs, but it didn't bother me at all. I just kept posting about subjects that were of interest to me and I mostly kept my cool. The discord diminished. AB didn't get "run off" the thread, I don't believe. I think that she may have had social activities to attend. I don't find topix negative talk "bullying." In order to bully, someone has to know who you are, perhaps where you live, your personal weaknesses; etc. A few of us have exchanged personal e-mails, and keep in touch off of topix. I am a Christian and of strong faith, but I have found that arguing about religion is futile. People have strong feelings about that issue, and jabs at each other's beliefs just keeps the rancor alive.
I don't believe in arguing about religion either. But as a Christian it is our duty to clear it up when somebody presents a lie as truth. There are people depending on us to see and hear the truth. I take that very seriously because one day God will ask us, "What did you do?" in whatever situation. If somebody comes in here and gives a beautiful presentation of Islam or whatever - it is not my job to attack them or fight with them. But it is my job to give them the best presentation of Jesus that I can. What they do with it is not my problem. Yeah I know I take this a lot more serious than most people do and it is very controversial.
