my readers? Ummmm are you talking about all you atheists?? Ha.........you people are about as one sided as anyone could possibly get.

Mocking God and believers is practically all she does.
Wow....just wow

skeptical atheists? I think you mean close minded atheists. Do I really need to go back and list all the vulgarities people on this thread have said regarding Christians? Take a few minutes and do that for yourself and then get back to me.
I'm a Christian, and I don't recall anyone trying to personally insult me on this forum, but you.

Is it because when you choose to insult someone, you don't discriminate? Try not to use an insult to answer the question.

You know what is really funny about trolls like Bob of Quantum-Faith aka notes and notes 2? The way they go back and place positive "Judge It" icons on their own posts and negative ones on almost everyone else's. Does he really think anyone cares about those silly things or that he's fooling anyone? what a dweeb!
Agreed!

Yes, your readers, a mix of atheists, skeptics, onlookers, and those who, like yourself, are here mainly to argue with atheists for one reason or another. When you begin a post, though, you should think about the people who will read what you write. Who, in that general mix, do you want to persuade and of what? what does your target audience currently believe and why? Given that, what can you present that will give them reason to reconsider those beliefs?

At one point or another, many writers here have described the processes by which they came to their current positions. Most of those whom you oppose have expressed an attachment to logic and evidence that hold up to skeptical analysis. If you respond to them with unsupported assertions and more emotional approaches, you are unlikely to change anyone's point of view.

But perhaps that is not your goal. Perhaps you actually enjoy useless, pointless wrangling and arbitrary exchanges of insults. If so, you should be able to take as well as you give rather than complaining when others disrespect you and mock your beliefs.

The fundamental questions remain: what do you hope to accomplish here? does your current approach accomplish that goal? how can you change your approach to do better?

These are questions all writers should as of themselves.

I wasn't offended Anti, you have never magaged to offend me try as you may. However, your ability to miss the point is making believe in the supernatural. No mere human could be that clueless and that closed minded, yet here you are before me.

You have another Christian trying to explain to you that no one has attacked them on this forum and that most of what they have seen has been you attacking and insutling others for having different beliefs.

your response,"are you gay?"

I really am not sure if theres any help for you Anti.

We need a Republican jihad that would bring back prayer in schools and would legislate compulsory attendence at solid, Protestant churches. Then this country would prosper again.

Well at least you weren't insulting this time.

No I'm not gay, and to save you a little time with anymore Socratics , I'm not a Lesbian either.

Sorry to disappoint you. I know it would have made avoiding my question so much easier.

I will rephrase my question. Why do you feel it is your duty as a Christian to insult someone?

Hopefully, you don't try to "counsel" anyone.

The world has enough messed up people as it is, without *you* making more.

bob if anyone knows about counseling its you. My guess is that you are beyond counseling at this point. Only a mental institution would work for you now.

Yes-- hate speech.

You are *literally* making Genuine Christians™ look bad.

Did you not read the post from another christian? Who chastised your hate-speech?

So, yes indeed-- you are a hatetheist.

You did not answer:

WHEN did you CHOOSE to be straight?

Or did you?

Perhaps you are gay?

You certainly protest as if you are...
