Thread: June, 2006, Posts of the Month
Message: Message 5
although my nomination is in no way complementary towards iano, I'd like to clarify that it was never intended as a personal attack or a means of disrespecting him as a poster.
it's just that iano, in one sentence, managed to succintly and definitively explain the following:
how critical analysis, reasoning and common sense are left out of the door when it comes to interpreting the bible.
why it's absolutely pointless trying to reason with a Christian because, when it comes to the crunch, arguments become irrelevant and the bible is always true, because...it just is.
like I said, the fact that it comes from a poster who -in other topics- has demonstrated intelligence, analytical skills and reasoning ability only makes my points above even more pertinent.
{A note from Adminnemooseus: My moderator comments on the message in question can be found here. They concluded with "Bottom line: In my opinion, a problimatic POTM nomination. Maybe it belongs here, maybe it doesn't. I thought the situation called for some admin type comment." I have nothing further to say about this situation.}

A POTM nomination is supposed to be a positive statement about a post, so negative comments don't belong in the nomination
I wasn't aware of that. I thought that a POTM is one that stands out for whatever reason and for me iano's post really stood out as it captured the essence of a fundamentalist mindset.
I'd be happy to retract the nomination if you can tell me the best way to do it (delete / strikeout ?)
