    Do you have anything other than these grandstanding posts you know will get you a million high-fives from the peanut gallery? It's kind of getting old. I mean, if you're going to continue this crusade against him, at least give the guy a point by point take down.

    Congrats on your book btw. It's refreshing to see someone be consistent on these sorts of issues, as so many US Christians seem to love being "pro-life" but are nonetheless pro death-penalty, pro-war, and pro self-defence-using-guns.

    I'm convinced that one-liners that get high-fives from the peanut gallery is the primary purpose of this site.

    Genuine (rhetorical) question here....

    In another thread you were arguing how you hated how LPOT had derailed a thread onto this very topic, basically calling Starlight insane and evil for his views, and you and Adrift never seem to get along either. So why come to this thread in the first place? Why put yourself in this type of situation, with the very people and topics that set you off before? Just don't do it and you will be much happier.

    Again, people:
    this thread was supposed to be for setting up a debate between two people. It has turned into another civics thread. And it isn't going anywhere. I am closing it for now. It may be reopened and moved but that isn't up to me. the Arena is for formal debates only

    ***If you wish to take issue with this notice DO NOT do so in this thread.***
    Contact the forum moderator or an administrator in Private Message or email instead. If you feel you must publicly complain or whine, please take it to the Padded Room unless told otherwise.
