That would explain a lot. These aren't your best Christians.
I am not sure what you are trying to imply here, my best Christians for what?

What are you doing about that? Have you been exhorting your own to be more respectful? They're not even respectful to one another, let alone unbelievers.
Respect for unbelievers is not something you are taught. You are taught the opposite, remember?
Your bible teaches you to call unbelievers fools, vile, corrupt, wicked, dark, liars, antichrists, the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers, and appropriate to be tortured in fire and brimstone. The world is told that not one of us is any good. Not even one. What do you think is an appropriate response from unbelievers to this kind of "respect"?
I said clearly in my post Christians and non-Christians, as I am frustrated across the board. You are wrong on many levels, I have no issue with you telling me what the Bible teaches me, but it does not make you correct. The appropriate response is to call them out on it, as it is disrespectful.

I came in peace. I doubt I was here five minutes before Dim resumed calling me a liar again, momentum form a previous encounter. I asked all of you if you cared to intervene. You claimed that you did, although you never produced a link showing that, just several that didn't.
The rest didn't even claim that. They just sat idly by while a visitor was lambasted by a Christian regular. That's when my attitude toward the Christians here formed. I offer you that amount of respect back.
I suggest that in the future, you treat your visitors with more respect. You need to admonish the ones that are out of line. Your silence was interpreted as anything from tacit support to indifference. It's a little late to be complaining about the reaction. I'm just as indifferent to your wants now as you were to mine then.
<quoted text>
I would suggest taking action proactively in the future. It's probably a little late to restore good feelings.
To be honest after I provided you with the links to the entire discussion, with you saying in response that they did not show what you were looking for, I stopped reading your post’s. In my honest *opinion* your attitude towards Christians on here was formed from the get go, as your responses to me are so off base. The discussion has been had several times as to why people do not respond to certain posters. Many Christians and non-Christians alike have agreed that at times it just fan’s the fire. I have already honestly apologized to you in the past, so to say that I was indifferent to you is incorrect.

In short, you people have a sense of being special. I don't share that sentiment with you, and I won't defer to you. In fact, I am defiant about it, which I think you mistake that for vanity.
Because you are special.

ROFLMAO

Thanks for the excellent example of hypocricy.

You seem to have missed the point. You also need to show a modicum of respect even for those that you do NOT value. You have seen the result of doing the opposite. When Christians complain about my posting, I wonder why you think that I should care about the language that is directed at you. Did you care when I asked you to?
<quoted text>
Do you mean just like you did with your troll comment? Your indifference to us is palpable. You have no right to expect more in return than you offer.
I did not miss the point and I show respect to everyone, even to the trolls (no I am not calling you one). I had someone call to my attention that I needed to stop responding to one the other day….yet at no point in time did I disrespect him in my responses. I have already shown you all the posts where I stepped in and said that someone was inappropriate towards you, I am sorry that it did not qualify as what you were looking for. If you took the comment about trolls to be you I once again apologize, as it was not directed at you. Again pop into the thread I used to post on and take a look…..when trolls take over the thread it stalls. Your comments are based on who you think I am because I am a Christian, you are holding things against me that I have never shown. <<shrugs>> Not much I can do about that.

Why are you under this illusion that Christianity cares what you do?
What makes you think that I do? Actually, much of my posting indicates that you don't care and need to start.

As far as Christianity is now concerned, it's debt to you is paid. You can now go fly a kite.
It's not that simple. We're not done with Christianity yet.

You have been debunked by them already. You aren't smart and witty enough to realize it.

The only reason you are here is to read your own words, insult everyone and hallucinate that you are better than everyone else.

"we", LOL. somehow you can't seem to grasp just how irrelevant you are. No one cares much what someone of irrelevance does or says, and you're irrelevant.

I seem hot and bothered? iyai!lol You're projecting, and Skombolis would agree. Your venom hate and anger is an amusing spectacle to see.

Only my opinion but I believe that repentance is the key not only to individual salvation but the solution for all mankind. Without it one is no more than an animal.
An interesting thought and one well taken.

Okay...I will ask...
How do you think that we should respond when a Christian calls a non-Christian names such as...evil, abominable, wicked, child of satan...well you get the message. What should we say in return...what would you expect our feelings to be over that.
All I ever get is...it is in the Bible...Jesus said so I can too...
IMO
Humans speak the words...yet put the responsibility of those words back on Jesus. It is as if that makes man a little less responsible for having used those words with another.
I would expect that your feelings would be hurt and that the Christian that called you such should feel shame. The Bible tells us to live above reproach when amongst unbelievers, calling people names is not living as the Bible directs us as Christians.

Gee, I had to go back and find this post when I saw another person responding to it. How can a man turn down such a plea from such a beautiful woman (even if the woman doesn't particularly care for men - perhaps she can be fooled by a man in a moment of foolishness).

I guess I should ask what you will do for me, if I stay, hon, but maybe that is pushing it a bit too far.:)

I will take her plea under advisement.:)

I'd be interested in finding out if your and others churches ever taught parishioners to say those things to people, I haven't seen it myself but it's all very different over there.
Learned behavior is generally learned from example, not words. If the words back up the example, they can help with the education.

But when the actions contradict the words, one learns the action, which now includes hypocrisy.

The Christians here say some of the worst things to unbelievers, and teach each other to do the same by that example. Those of you who don't contribute also don't speak out. With nobody objecting, the message is tacit assent.

Christians see some of the most vile people elevated to the highest ranks of their religion - people like Falwell and Robertson, two of the most successful and powerful televangelists of the last few decades. They and people like them rage at unbelievers from satellite feeds in low earth orbit 24/7.

That's all teaching - by example.

How about the all of that lying for Jesus? I have never heard anybody say that it's OK to lie for Jesus. But with so many doing it not only without any rebuke from their own, but with praise and encouragement, it says that that it is a fine thing to do.
