i think this is fair, however has it come to your attention that the occasional atheist shows "obvious repugnance" toward christians? i believe mutual respect is a good thing to strive for and that neither side should resort to the things you mention

It certainly has come to my attention, but my ability to detect guideline violations on both sides of the debate is not balanced.

this is about as refreshing and honest a post as i've seen in a long time... of course i wish it wasn't so, but then i also wish i was a tad more (dare i say?) christian in my posts than i am...

Jet,
You and I both know that we don't need to look to anyone or anything else for our "rules of conduct". Our fearless leader *silly grin* pointed out the conduct of Jesus who when reviled, reviled not. There are also numerous passages exhorting us as believers to be gentle, kind, etc., etc.
The thing is, we don't get to judge those who don't believe by the same standards ... but they do get to judge us. Drat, eh? They know the standard ... and they expect us to live by it .... forgetting that we are human too. Don't lose heart ... do not weary in doing good and remember when we say we speak/act/live for God, EVERYTHING we do tells about God ... and we either tell a lie, or we tell the truth.
Sermonette over :-)
oh yeah, you don't HAVE to click the post button (this is the only medium in which we can really "think before we speak") [/B][/QUOTE]
eggcellent, and pernt taken

Forgiven, how do you feel about this? Do you have the available time? Are you here for the long term?

i thank my sometimes adversary Quetzal for his nomination and Admin for the opportunity, but i recently began a new job and am only able to be here on a hit or miss basis... i am honored though
i would like to offer Chara in nomination, however... she is as fair a person as i know... i have known her for years and i can attest to all that she'd be perfect for the job... if, that is, she has the time... so if it's allowed i offer her name for consideration

i just reread my post in which i nominated chara... it wasn't worded strongly enough...
many years ago i started an internet ministry on irc... chara was my very first channel operator and gave many years of loyal service... i would have been lost without her support and advice... she is a remarkable person and this message board would be a far better place with her involved... she is honest and fair and i count her among my very dearest friends... i do hope you give her the most serious consideration

Chara: If I didn't feel, from your posts, that you had the ability and integrity to be a good moderator, I wouldn't have seconded forgiven's nomination. I hope you'll take Percy's offer.

yeah what he said
