Oh boo-hoo, a faith was singled out. Christianity. boo-fucking-hoo.

Considering that Muslims are routinely regarded as terrorists en masse in this place, some people protesteth too much.

But that's just me being leftwing, perhaps.

I would be interested if you would cite where Muslims are regarded as terrorists en masse here. I probably post more on that issue than most others but I make the distinction between all Muslims being terrorists and all of a particular group of terrorists being Muslim.

My tongue was firmly planted in my cheek, naxos -- hence the after the comment. I don't get offended that easily -- hell, I'd be offended all the time if that was the case! I thought it was quite funny. I still think it's funny...even more so now.

Naxos, I understand that you're new to FYM, but we really prefer that people try to keep their discourse a little more civil. You haven't been around long, and maybe you haven't noticed that name-calling and laughing at people aren't really constructive to what we're trying to do here.

You're welcome to hang out and share your views, but try to do it in a more adult manner.

Thanks.

Then, why do you as a moderater allow such attacks, verbal they be, on other religions like christianty and the personel attacks on a fundamentalist preacher like Pat Robertson? Both attacks were incited by Scarlettwine. Prove to me that this board isn`t 2 faced! Yes it is my wish that this board WAS more CIVIL. I hope that the Administrator and the moderators maintain a civil board .

I'm trying to find where Scarletwine attacked Robertson and I'm not finding it.

I would recommend to you that you read through FYM a bit more and think things through before continuing to post here.

Thanks.

look harder! and start moderating, whats the point in being a moderator if you don`t moderate? i say that to all the moderators here at the board! I don`t like threats, ban be already! this board is toxic. I hope that in the future the administrator will correct that, and find moderators who will moderate!
