Well I would say if someone wasn't sure what my initial intent was they had other posts for context. After that I posted to W_N letting her know people were concerned about her son and did she have any updates to pass along. I then posted to G saying I understood he didn't post what he did out of ego but because his integrity was called into question and even his competency. I then copied a reply from Lawest to W_N. Again,those came AFTER the quotes. W_N even responded to the one about her son so I sincerely doubt she didn't she the quotes until the next day which she had to pass to get to my post about her son. She saw another poster jump on me and wanted to ride the bandwagon. There are a lot of posters like that on Topix. As there are a lot of followers in life in general.<quoted text>Well, there you go. That's what was missing from the initial "outburst", shall we say. I had no idea what your angle was so I held off waiting for further posts to illustrate what you were after. Others here responded more quickly, assuming you were resurrecting the "Christian nation for Christians" story. I think it was a fair assumption.
I hope you have a great day today.
And considering even in the quote with the posts I said I was simply providing it for background as I have since what it is they believed debated a lot and thought the quotes shed light on that. So I guess I will just agree to disagree. W-N has a history with me and quite frankly with most looking to nit-pick and fight in situations most wouldn't have even thought to try to make an issue
As for the quotes I never said it summed up their entire lives. But it spoke specifically to what they based their personal morals on and that they felt society suffered when moving away from God. 2 of the quotes had the entire text. The other i shortened from a much longer paragraph just because it was pretty much reiterating the same things. I think it is very biased to selectively decide quotes basically cherry-picked and meaningless when they say something someone doesn't like unless you never rely on quotes for this reason then I would say fair enough. Quotes generally give a good idea of how someone feels about a specific subject. I don't think we need their life's work to get a pretty good idea of how they feel based on a specific quote
As to whether or not their idea of God was the same as mine is not relevant to me. I don't need anybody else's beliefs to mirror mine. But I respect the fact that these men of power recognized their is a higher power to the universe that men should answer to and that moving away from God can negatively impact us as a society. I agree with that. Organized religion may be a different argument but not God.
I still don't see why you feel those quotes are misleading. Can you please provide me other information for context so I can see why you think that? Thanks
Hope your day has been a good one
