I can't speak about Dr Shrink, as I have not known him very long, at least not as that alias, and so far I have no desire to know him better. On the other hand, I watched Kaitlin being bullied daily on several threads for several years by people who allegedly were God's gifts to humanity, according to their own descriptions, and so if she seems a bit caustic, at least in her situation, she has had some reasons, though even I have mentioned to her a few times that she might be gaining more by cutting back a bit on her ways of presenting herself, since she is one of the smarter posters on Topix, and thus does not necessarily require the type of approach she sometimes uses.

I guess I find her kind of approach more difficult to understand when it comes from a person claiming to be a Christian, than from someone who has never claimed here to be a Christian. My knowledge of what Christianity stands for leads me to expect a bit different type of post from them, yet many 'Christians' here make Kaitlin look like a saint, in comparison.

Sorry, Kaitlin, I am well aware that you are quite able to stand on your own two feet without my two cents worth, but as you no doubt are aware, I am one to give an opinion anyway.

We all have reasons why we do what we do Boots...

Most child abusers were abused as a child...

We can't justify our actions based on other people's actions.

I understand Kait's anger...I have experienced that anger myself. I sometimes respond based on that anger. I have to own that...I made the choice to do so...no one forced me to.

I have seen Kait respond in a kind and compassionate manner before...I actually like that Kait. I just don't enjoy reading about such descriptive accounts that she sometimes gives. I scroll by those.

This is what I think...if I am going to speak up about the actions of those that I disagree with...then I should have the courage to speak up about the actions of those that I do agree with. To do otherwise would make me a hypocrite...we have enough of those posting here without me adding to the number.

Though...I believe that all of us can be hypocrites at times...we see our "own kind" in a different light than we see the "opponent".

One frequently occurring complaint that I have seen on this thread is that Christians will not speak up against their own and yet point out the faults of non-Christians.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Ephesians 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
Colossians 3:8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
2 Timothy 2:14 Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription:“The Lord knows those who are his,” and,“Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
2 Timothy 2:21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

We are NOT the individuals that attacked Kait elsewhere- from what I have seen scanning posts over this near past-and since I came in last week....- Her approach toward this thread has been to attack and belittle the people here- paying this thread back for what was done to her ?? So others have turned into doing things her way )c:

Dr. Shrink does NOT meet ANY of the criteria for being Christian- He is a poser- who has NOT yet accepted Christ- had he truly accepted Christ- his heart would be purified and he would not spew the filth and hate which he posts.
He seems to be every non believers excuse for their own wrong deeds. He does not represent Christ- he represents his own poor choices and his own world.

Hi truths.
You're not telling the truth.
Yeshua was never the promised messiah.
The first letter in the name Yeshua ("Jesus") is the yod.... names such as yo-NA, yi-SHAI, and ye-SHU-a have become known to us as Jonah, Jesse, and Jesus.

The Old Testament books in the Bible (all of them written between 1450 BC and 430 BC)

contained hundreds of prophecies
about an “anointed one”(“Messiah” in Hebrew)

who would arrive in their future.

The Messiah would “deliver” or “save” all the Jewish people,
bringing them to paradise or heaven.

These prophecies also stated that the Messiah would save all the other people in the world “through the Jews.”
For this reason, people who are not Jewish need to learn about the Messiah, too.

I guess, since we allegedly have 40,000 various denominations, and sects of Christianity, and likely over 2 billion individual opinions on who is misrepresenting God, it would be rather difficult to objectively find which one is the real representative.
However, the denomination to which I refer is the leading Christian denomination in Canada, and represents denominations that are the leading Christian denominations in the world, and is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada, and possibly the one which gets the most attention of the general public, so if it is misrepresenting Christianity then no denomination is representing Christianity.
Again, that, to me, is now redundant, as though I do believe that this denomination has one of the best policies of churches worldwide, it still, IMO, is misled as to there being a God. It also like all the other denominations in the western world is rapidly disappearing.
I understand what you are saying (((((Booots))))))

It does not changr the facts of what the Bible considers living in sin.
What that church shows us- is that it is WILLING to change God's word and commandments in order to gain MONEY from all of those "FLASE" converts.

A church that leads others into sin is MOST guilty of ALL that ever lived- Hitler killed over 14 million bodies - But many of those people probably knew the Lord-

But what you are telling me is that THIS church is killing MILLIONS of SOULS..... by letting them think that
"if it feels good do it" is the gospel )c:
If they took away the barrier of Marriage and sexual relations being for marriage- what else are they teaching and preaching ??

In allowing a change in Gods word on one topic- maybe they also got rid of their conscience when it comes to other arteas.

All in self interest - of owning bigger houses, more cars and vacation homes - THEY SOLD OUT JESUS as a Prophet and Savior- for their own PROFIT Booots.

<quoted text>Nobody has to justify to someone else what public stances they choose to take or why

Often this is a tactic when people want to engage in fake moral outrage.

The last person to use this tactic on this same subject was later trying to justify their own Internet buddies and proceeded to explain to me how calling someone a "filthy gay liar" is not a problem as far as how "gay" is used in progression with other insults so long as it is true. They went on to compare it to calling someone "a good Christian man" and asking if i would take the use of "Christian" in that context as an insult. The person who claimed it was not bigotry to call someone a "filthy gay liar" also claims to be gay themselves. Of course all of this stemmed from an ill-advised and disingenuous attempt to justify a similar yet equally bigoted claim of "filthy Christian liar" by IANS

So it is a little hard to take these claims seriously. And even if someone were too, they shouldn't.

Do you think someone has the right to demand you express your views publicly?

Do you think its ethical if they have seen you speak up before and now ask in a different venue caring more about driving a wedge between people than any actual concern over someone's public moral stance?

Why do you not chastise fellow unbelievers for bigoted statements against those of faith? Surely you are not only responsible for what anyone else says but it is also your public duty to rebuke them every time right?

This tactic is as hypocritical as it is dishonest. Other people have a right to their opinion. When you ask it and then don't like it that is your problem, not theirs. And nobody has to monitor or approve of what others say when expressing their opinions. They also don't have to agree with everyone else's opinions either and their silence on it implies neither support or opposition.

All due respect but these tactics are old and transparent. PW was willing to go along because she is a generally nice person. Me, I don't mind calling bullcrap for what it is. And trying to use morality as a club is bull crap and no different than the very thing you claim to be against
Did you even read my post?
You're attempting to declare war on a post that said "I won't bother you."
