A Testimonial to Old Church Guy
« on: December 15, 2014, 05:02:42 AM »
Thank you for being who you are as a person of faith. As you well know most to all of us here do not care if people of religion wish to be religious. What we care about is them forcing their beliefs on us just the same as they would not wish anyone else (like atheists) forcing their beliefs (or lack of) on them.

I would hope more of your ilk would join this website. You are a force of civility, and despite what people think of me as a person, I do know civility, and that is what you encompass. If only more people, religious or non-religious, were more like you I think the world truly would be a better place for all.

I personally thank you for all the contributions you've made to the conversations and debates of this website.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Well done, Nam...  well done!

If we could get all theists to be as open-minded as Old Church Guy, and get everyone to be as nice, this old world might move ahead a bit.

Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

You people remind me of others I know. When I acted, in their minds, out of character, they seriously asked if I was okay.

We would all do well to emulate OCG's civility.

Seconded. Though of course it's not just his civility that makes him well-received by the atheists here. OCG is one of the few theists I've met online who puts more than a token effort into at least trying to understand the atheistic perspective.

I should have been more clear. I was referring to a TRAP from OCG! A joke, of course.

I was more than a little surprised to see this thread from you, Nam.  And apparently I'm not the only one.

I've noted that people have a tendency to cover surprise and confusion over something with humor.  Or with bluster.

This is all true.

OCG,

 I am quite amazed at your ability to identify the argument and use just a few words to amazing effect either by way of an answer, a point, or a question: you have a gift, and it is all the more pleasing that you are here.
