I can certainly name 5.

But I won't.

Why should I name anyone? I haven't participated in this thread, I've not started it, not named it, nor ever used any of those terms that you object to. All I did is comment on what I thought to be the reason behind using the term, based on observations in this forum.

Find yourself one of those people to quibble with. I'm not playing.
And I wasn't slamming on you, anitram. You siad that this name calling was in response to other name-calling by the right. I think you're wrong; there is much more slamming of Christians going on in these forums than slamming of Muslims.

I won't name the ones in my mind either, but all 5 are regulars. They are not the fly-by-night posters that disappear after a couple of posts.

How am I wrong when the person who named this thread just told me that this is EXACTLY why he'd chosen the term?

One is me right? You can tell me I promise will take it on board and won't be offended.

To the two people who posted saying they thought the discussion was s**t, laughable, or whatever, well all I can say is they have a point but it does seem that certain kinds of issues are hot button topics and attract a lot of discussion here, others are less likely to attract discussion, that's all I can say, there's not really much point in posting a thread that attracts 2 responses and just dies after a day

Looking at some recent threads, Dreadsox started one on Gitmo, Shart1780 started one on Live Aid, Hotpepper started one on Zimbabwe, I myself started one on 'Rovegate' - all important issues yet none of these threads seemed to have generated that many responses.

Well, alright then, you are not wrong. However, the person who told you this is wrong if he thinks that more insults are made against Muslims in this forum than against Christians.

Of course one of them is you. You did it in the title and first post of this thread.

Well this thread is great fun and silly and kind of mindless. Perfect for summer.

I'm so hoping one of them is me. If not, I'm going to have to have a serious discussion with myself.

Actually, you were not one of the people I was thinking of. While you have insulted me personally, I don't recall any times that you have insulted Conservative Christianity.

Ok, so Indra's not just in the bad books, but in the very bad books.

What happened to forgiveness an' all that?

You've got a good point.

When someone apologizes, I forgive. When they don't, it takes me a little longer to do so.

However, that's no excuse. I'm supposed to forgive even if I don't get an apology.

So, I'm going to forgive and try not to think about it anymore or bring it up.

In the meantime, I owe Indra an apology for not forgiving her sooner, so I do. I apologize, and I mean it.
