I actually misread the title as "Incel Transformers" and was bracing myself for terrible MRA-themed fanfic :P

Should I really feel good about messing with the Fundies by using the bible to fight against their beliefs, when they insist that they only go by the bible themselves.[?] lol!  ;D

Certainly you should. And I’m very happy you do. I avoid quoting scripture mostly because I see it way to often as a poker game - "I’ll see your Mark and raise you." And as you have repeatedly told Amos it is his interpretation of scripture - not everybody agrees.

Speaking of Amos, I mostly enjoy your long posts and thinking not in that the message will get through to him, but instead all the other folks who will read that message as well.  In a way, think of it as a debate, yes, you are responding to a person, however, your message is to everyone who wanders by.

Jocasta, I'm not sure how to reply to individuals, so I gave this a shot.   :'(

Lots of people don’t know about replying to individuals here. While logged in there is a menu item (on the "Home" row) labeled “My Messages” click it to send messages or read messages people send to you. A number in brackets indicates how many messages you have not read.

I’m spilling the beans for two reasons. First, I’ve sent messages to some folks and do not think they ever saw the message. And second, the only way we learn is by asking and sharing. Thanks again for the info on removing errant thumbs up.

And most amazingly of all is that he manages all this without once saying anything about what he DOES believe.  He's not a Bible thumper, he never even mentions the Bible.

Huh, I never realized that, but you're right.  At least Amos will tell you what he believes.  Not that he's any less annoying for it, though.  I remember how I had that long conversation with him about that whole "predestination" thing....still don't think I understand that completely, or even that I really want to, to tell the truth.

Jocasta, I'm not sure how to reply to individuals, so I gave this a shot. I expect I'll ask how to do things once in a while, but for the most part I like to figure things out on my own.
When people are rude to me Or my friends, I very politely ask them to behave better so we at the board can have better discussions. Oddly enough, a lot of the rude ones aren't rude to me, but are to others. I love to stand up for Ambulance Chaser when they try to say he does not know that law!
Oboehner's rarely posted to me. I would not be surprised if he was one I politely put down. lol! Either that or he read my bickering back and forth with Amos.  :o
Did you see what Amos said? He reads up to the first "mistake" and then replies to that. That was after ages of asking why he did not answer the questions I had asked. If he was in front of me, I'd probably have to pray for forgiveness tonight. That's how much he bugs me! I am by no means a violent person; I didn't even spank my kids, but I think meeting Amos face to face might make it hard to resist being at least a little violent... like slapping him across the mouth - once for each of the posts I wasted my time typing thinking he really  just doesn't know the bible.  ::) Boy that's a 59yr old confessing to being naive. I knew nothing about Fundies at all. Boy were my eyes opened!
Oh yeah, and I'm a babbler on boards. I try not to be but sometimes it just grows. Then I try to edit it down but there are times that I just sigh and let it go. I do apologize for times I will babble, because I know I do.  :'(

Right. Yeah, you're talking out of your ass there. We respect different opinions. You have been a part of this community long enough to know that. However, you also should damn well know that no one's opinion is safe from criticism. You sitting there complaining that we don't accept differences in opinion reeks of the kinds of people who complain about "violations" of their free speech because they can't get away with spouting hateful nonsense without criticism.

Furthermore, I will also call you out for your association with the hateful pieces of shit that frequent Kiwi Farms. In the very thread we're discussing, we have casual uses of "tranny," an obviously transphobic slur, "chimp out," an extremely racist term and "sperg," an ableist slur that basically shows that refers to Asperger's. Not to mention that Kiwi Farms exists to mock people for no reason other than not conforming to whatever they think is correct behavior. And the one thing I won't abide by is laughing at people behind their backs because they're not "normal."

EDIT: Also, care to explain your contributions to that thread where you complain about us "dogpiling" you and about us being "SJWs?" Because that was a sure fire way to kill the respect I once had for you.

So, since posting here, she's been posting there about us?

So, if I understand this right, we're talking about them, for talking about us, for talking about them, for talking about us, while talking about us. Meta.
