    The notion that I, or any other Christian on this board, has any sort of obligation to disavow every statement like "all atheists are anti-christian bigots", or any other statement we might disagree with made by a fellow Christian here on TWeb is quite frankly absurd and ridiculous. Silence does not imply agreement. Nor does it imply disagreement. It doesn't imply much of anything, in fact.

    You might want to take that up with Thomas Moore

    Nah, but if you explain what relevance he has to what I wrote I might take it up with you.

    I was thinking of the quote from "A Man for All Seasons." When Cromwell, trying to get him convicted of opposing the king, informs him that his silence conveys his opposition to the king, Moore responds, "Not so. Not so, Master Secretary. The maxim is "Qui tacet consentiret": the maxim of the law is "Silence gives consent". If therefore you wish to construe what my silence betokened, you must construe that I consented, not that I denied."

    The relevant passage is here.
