Peace has been made!

Post by cwbjr67 » Sun Nov 16, 2008 6:07 pm

Those involved in the locked thread made peace BEFORE it was locked! People can work things out! Chris (aka Chadwick) was wonderfully gracious, and he gives me hope that civil discussion does work despite the occasional--and rather minor--flare up. 8-)

Not only that, even though it was locked, it seems a mod still unlocked the lock in order to get in the last word.
Just because your hate is masked by "free thinking" or being "open-minded" does not make it right.

Ahhh, that's okay. That's between M and H. Maybe we can have a moderator slugfest. My money's on M! :wink:

Yeah, that was obvious before, when you, you know, did that.

No, what you said was that I unlocked the thread, posted, then relocked the thread. I did no such thing. I clarified that mods can still post to locked threads (without unlocking them).

Yes, I and others brought up how Kevin needed to get in a last word. How he was able to do so really does not matter is my point.

From what I saw the last two pages, GCMystreaux and Malibu agreed that their "one true god" was more important that individual human rights. This was not two opposite sides coming to an agreement. You and chadwick settled a disagreement about the PHRASING of one post, not the underlying issue.

So no, I'd say peace wasn't made, and I stand by the last comment I made in that thread.

Maybe not a peaceful resolution, but definitely a good discussion and debate without name-calling and belittling.

So would you like to see the thread opened back up so you could tell us how wrong and stupid we are for believing in God?

Yes, God trumps all rights. Without Him, we are nothing anyway.

No, I think you already know.

Pfft. You might be nothing without him, but I'm the exact same person with or without him. His existence is completely irrelevant to mine.
