One has to wonder what the TOPIX moderators really think of such a habitual cry baby? They don't seem to be supporting your spurious claims any more. Perhaps they too have become sick of your foul mouthed rants. There are certainly plenty of them on record.
Ah, the turd in the punchbowl floats back to the top... we'll see when you get your off topic harassment kicked out again.

The subject of religious freedom is demeaned by your foul mouthed rants.
In terms of an example of a Pagan, you position that religion in an invidious position. What is it that makes you in particular so foul mouthed and obnoxious?
There must be socially responsible Pagans in the religion, who accept and abhor those child abusers indentified, charged and sentenced to custodial terms of imprisonment. Not cyberbullies who deny it and post foul mouthed rants about it.
I believe there are good, well adjusted Pagans within the religion, but in view of your vile posts, you are using this thread on religious freedom to practice as a cyberbully.
Your fascination with excrement is interesting too, You have referred to me as a "feces", a "POS" and now a "turd". Perhaps your fascination with excrement is something to do with the environment you frequent during the alternate form of sex you practice.
Remember when you complain to the TOPIX moderators. You were the one who brought these profanities to the table. If you can't handle me repeating your words, keep your language clean in the first instance.
Actually Jackass, your off topic rants have nothing to do with religious freedom, your insistence in pushing that particular off topic rant is precisely why you are a TROLL. You can go flush yourself, sewer slime, there's nothing that i have said that you haven't earned.

One of the greatest freedoms is the freedom to be left alone. People tend to forget that when their side is in power and only remember it when they are in the minority.

And MORON, once again you have to be TOLD, being an Editor is not a Paid Position. You've been told all of this numerous times, you really should go back to your own grade level, it's obvious your IQ is about the same as your shoe size.

And again, that isn't true. Even when it comes to something as basic as privacy that right only extends so far. If you've ever done business with a company, they have the "right" to call you or send you mailings, living in particular areas, your power consumption is monitored to be sure you aren't growing illegal drugs....the only privacy anyone really gets anymore is only upon burial.

He rants about other people's off topic postings, yet he has not been on topic on this thread for quite some time. Rather than post on topic, he indiscriminately tosses insults at people with the arrogance one can only attribute to a cyberbully.
Also, if you notice, his rants often include refernces to excrement (under numerous descriptions) and to sewers and the like.
Religious freedom, the subject of this thread, has been served an invaluable insight into the mind of a Pagan. One wonders how many converts will defect from their religions and join the Pagans on the basis of this foul mouthed cyberbully's example.
The crybaby is still whining because he can't force others to discuss his off topic rant and has a tantrum when others stand up to his bigoted lies...typical

Why would TOPIX compromise its integrity by making a foul mouthed cyberbully an Editor?
You wouldn't know anything about integrity, trying to push your off topic rant as being related to the thread, you're nothing more than a lying POS. Isn;t it time for you to fake another seizure?

And I am against all those things.
Just because Fascist, Dictators and Liberals want to limit my Freedom and privacy does not mean I should go neekly and submit to their orders. I plan on fighting every inch of the way.

You can "be against" whatever you want, reality proves that no man is an island, your right to refuse anything exist only in the fact that your refusal hurts no one else, once that line is crossed, the "right" no longer exists.

I note he calls you a "MORON" and a "LIAR", are you admitting to either? Or both?
You are obviously having a bit of fun here, I appreciate that, but unfortunately the Pagan, who takes himself so seriously, doesn't have a sense of humour, so it is all wasted on him.
Trolls like yourself and jumper aren't funny.
Dim Bulbs like yourself are too stupid to know, Pagans don't proselytize, we don't seek converts, people become curious, study, and make up their own minds which path they choose to follow.

The TOPIX moderators appear to have realised that you are actually the troll, posting off topic and making false accusations about people in your foul mouthed manner. You actually have possibly the foulest mouth on TOPIX.
Accusing others of doing exactly what you are yourself guilty of is a very transparent ploy, but the TOPIX moderators now know that.
This thread is about religious freedom, I regularly address it in my posts. You on the other hand have not addressed the subject, other than to present yourself in a manner, which if typical of Pagans, would simply serve to portray your religion in a very negative light.
No matter how many times you repeat those LIES it doesn't make them any more true. TOPIX moderators take some time to make their decisions, they are not a large group and it can take a while for them to get to the complaints, especially during the holidays. Your whining about a "foul mouth" shows exactly what kind of an immature brat you are, more worried that "someone said a naughty word" than the actual point which shows your intellect is far below average. You haven't addressed anything other than your bigotry against pagans in general.
