Really you thought this was about Christianity?

BVS, don't you realize, some Christians are better than others?

and thus ends another FYM thread that makes me realize that i want little to do with the devout and pious and arrogant.

This thread started to go bad when people who do not hold a Christian viewpoint and even an athiest or two started answering questions that were clearly not intended for them. It was obvious that the person who started this thread wanted some Christian answers for a Christian issue.

That's my true feelings on the matter. I'm not judging anyone for this, because at one point or another, I think most of us have stuck our nose into threads that were clearly not meant for us. I know I have.

Like Yolland said, I think that issues such as are much better to be discussed with people you know and trust, not people on an online forum.

Terminus reached, I'm afraid.

If you consider your point of view non-negotiable...why bother submitting it for negotiation by starting a discussion?

Likewise, if you understand yourself to be arguing with someone whose views on the topic are non-negotiable...why bother to keep arguing?

It's a gesture of bad faith in the value of maintaining trust and civility all around.
