I will also say its obvious that you did come here just for that. You should be proud of your achievements. In all these years we've seen some filthy, dirty and cruel posters but your the first to have made Epi consider leaving the thread. You should be proud of yourself I suppose..........
Hey Lar......:-)

Well done, LeLe. That is what I consider a Christian moral and imperative.

While you may not, I care what the facts are concerning any interaction I engage in happens to be.

What I don't do is ignore facts that may cause me to readjust my view.

Thanks. You should try it sometime.
Skombolis wrote:
Who cares how likely it is that a gay will be a pedophile?
Probably gay people. It's also been established that pedophiles don't like to be seen as either heterosexual or homosexual.

So, based upon that, I think it's relevant to point out there are differences and that should be kept in mind.

Become a chameleon-fit in anywhere. Be a rockstar-stand out everywhere. Do nothing, do everything. Forget everything, remember everyone. Care, don't just pretend to. Listen to everyone. Love everyone and nothing at the same time. Its impossible to be everything,but you can't stop trying to do it all.
All I know is that I have no idea where I am right now. I feel like I am in training for something, making progress with every step I take. I fear standing still. It is my greatest weakness.
I talk big, but often don't follow through. That's my biggest problem. I don't even know what to think right now. It's about time I start to take a jump. Fuck starting to take. Just jump-over everything. Leap.
It's time to be aggressive. You've started to speak your mind, now keep going with it, but not with the intention of sparking controversy or picking a germane fight. Get your gloves on, it's time for rebirth. There IS no room for the nice guys in the history books.
THIS IS THE START OF A REVOLUTION. THE REVOLUTION IS YOUR LIFE. THE GOAL IS IMMORTALITY. LET'S LIVE, BABY. LET'S FEEL ALIVE AT ALL TIMES. TAKE NO PRISONERS. HOLD NO SOUL UNACCOUNTABLE, ESPECIALLY NOT YOUR OWN. IF SOMETHING DOESN'T HAPPEN, IT'S YOUR FAULT.
Make this moment your reckoning. Your head has been held under water for too long and now it is time to rise up and take your first true breath.
Do everything with exact calculation, nothing without meaning. Do not make careful your words, but make no excuses for what you say. F*kc em' all. Set a goal for everyday and never be tired.”

No matter how you flail about and try to divert attention away from how the negative actions of Christians, taints all of Christianity, to other areas.

That was covered earlier. I gave a response. You seem to think that if you don't get the answer you wanted the first time when asking a question, if you ask the question over and over again the answer will somehow change.

And police ourselves? We aren't a policing agency. No Christian has any legal authority over another Christian and can't control what a tiny, tiny, percentage do.
Don't be intentionally obtuse and play semantic word meaning games. It doesn't work for RR, it won't work for you, either.

You claim to not police other Christians, and yet you consistently "try" to police <> LeLe, and have tried in the past to do so with people such as Luci, Annie, and others, that seemed to be in doubt if they were or were not Christians... Perhaps you affected their final decision.

Also...

You consistently attempt to define what Christianity means to other Christians, and non Christians too.

That's policing.

Hypocrisy, double standards and doublespeak, this is becoming the legacy of Skombolis.

NO matter how much spin you want to put on it, it comes down to this:
"the actions of a few members within Christianity, taints the whole of Christianity."THAT is stereotyping
No, that is an observation.

Those actions taint Christianity. You seem to forget you have an "official" doctrine, outlined in the bible, and further, doctrines within and along denominational lines.

So, when Christians do something that blatantly and directly contradict or conflict with that publicly stated and written down doctrinal outline, that taints the message of Christianity.

Notice, if some Christians exhibit racism, misogyny, violent behaviors and other such contradictory actions, does not mean that it applies to all Christians, IE; It does not mean all Christians are thought to be the same.

It simply means that some Christians, no matter what is stated in your religious text and doctrinal outlines, do not follow that, and in turn, that, reflects upon all of Christianity, which claims to have a superior moral approach to living life and being superior components of society or civilization.

I have more of a basis to say it is more likely a gay scout member will abuse a child because I have actually seen it happen more than once in real life.
Supply that personally viewed experience, establish the person was gay, but not a pedophile.

Show me where the post in question has been replicated by another Christian. Then explain how it is connected to Christians that had nothing to do with it?
I'm not really asking because you will continue to play these games. There are only two possibilities here. You don't understand what stereotyping is. Or you aren't being honest
There's another option, the one you want to ignore.

I'm not stereotyping.
Skombolis wrote:
And considering I have asked you that Muslim question 3 times now without a direct answer from you, I'm leaning towards not honest
And I just bet the reason is at some point on Topix you have gotten on Christians for connecting all Mums to 9-11 and you know if you say the same your credibility is out the window
But maybe I am wrong and you stereotype all people of faith
Are all muslims tainted by 9-11?
As I pointed out earlier, I've already gave my position concerning that issue.

Ask 50 additional times, and my position will not change unless you can illustrate to me why I should consider doing so.

I also never said gay men are more likely to be pedophiles
And I said nothing about a scout leader being atheist or agnostic
So how did you get off on two unrelated tangents?
They aren't unrelated, as you'll see.
Skombolis wrote:
This is about perception making stereotyping ok
I'm not stereotyping, although you will be doing that in the next few sentences/paragraphs.
Skombolis wrote:
So if people see a gay scout leader molest a kid and that's what they now connect in their mind to gay scout leaders, then all gay scout leaders are tainted by the actions of a few
That's how it works right?
You're quite predictable.

Here's why I supplied that additional information.

The Boy Scouts of America do not hire atheists, and agnostics. This means they are a theistic organization, and further, it also logically dictates due to being an American(USA) organization, predominantly Christian.

They also do not hire homosexuals.

So what we have is a theist, predominantly Christian organization that does not employ atheists, agnostics, or homosexuals.

And yet there were cases of pedophilia within that organization.

Theist pedophiles were employed by the Boy Scouts of America.

Does that mean all Scout leaders were pedophiles? No. Does it taint the image of the Boy Scouts of America? Yes.

Does it taint Christianity as well? Yes, due to it(BOA) being a theistic and predominantly Christian organization.

That's unfortunate, but a result.

There doesn't have to be an actual connection. They don't have to share the same views or proclivities or opinions or desires or morals or beliefs. They just have to belong to the same group so that common association will allow people to connect other things that aren't related.
Nope, that's not what I've ever said.

Christian message <> Christians <> Two different concepts.

You did make that statement, however, in regards to Boy Scouts of America.

You see a Christian do something bad. Regardless if it has anything to do with actual Christian ideology or what other Christians actually think, you claim it taints all of them
No, it taints the message of Christianity.

That's all it does. If a Christian exhibits racism, and even goes as far as supplying biblical verses supporting his stance, does not mean I think all Christians are racists, nevertheless, the message of Christianity has been affected, corrupted...tainted.

So the same should be true for gay scout leaders that abuse kids.
You mean pedophiles.
Skombolis wrote:
The only connection is the Boy Scouts. It doesn't matter that being gay and a pedophile may be two separate things and that it has nothing to do with Boy Scout ideology. Isn't matter that other gay scout leaders would never molest a child. They can be connected by a shared association therefore they are all tainted

Per your rationale
No, that's not my rationale, that's your rationale.

Your rationale extends that to mean all Scout leaders are connected to being pedophiles.

My rationale would be; When a Scout leader is found to be a pedophile, that taints the image of the Boy Scouts of America.

That doesn't mean I would suspect all Scout leaders of being pedophiles. It means the organization, Boy Scouts Of America, had failed in it's message, intent and clearly stated outcome or intended result.

And so it is with Christianity.

When pedophilia, child abuse and abuse is evidenced within the Catholic clergy, or Protestant ministry, or by members of either and all versions of Christianity, it taints the message of Christianity.

It doesn't mean I think all Christians are pedophiles, child abusers, abusers, or racists, misogynists, et al.

It's simple.

It just means Christianity has been tainted. The message has been damaged. The claim to having a superior moral discipline or conduct based upon the Christian doctrine or message is cast into doubt.

Christianity has been tainted by the actions of admittedly, less than exemplary Christians.

The claims to having a superior deity given and directed moral imperative, otherwise known as the message of Christianity, has been blemished, cast into doubt, tainted.
