He's really a very messed up person...in real life too, it would appear, if his Twitter feed is anything to go by.

He spends half his time tweeting prescriptions for Jesus, how we all need Jesus, ask me how Jesus turned my life around, would you like to know Jesus?  etc., and the other half the time complaining about how lonely and shitty his life is.

I’m not really surprised he has a lonely, shitty life. He’s so angry and hate-filled that no one wants to be near him. Although, to his credit, I’m not sure which one came first. Is he nasty and mean because he’s lonely, or is he lonely because he’s nasty and mean?

Good question.  All I know is that if I were Jesus I wouldn't want this guy doing any public service announcements for me, since it seems like all Jesus has done is make him angry and lonely and bitter. I found myself this close to feeling sorry for him, something I didn't think I was capable of feeling towards him.

Maxwell started a thread crying about being banned at Christian News Network...of course he posted it at Lady Checkmate's channel.

They don’t seem to understand what a “troll” is. The definition of a “troll” is not “anyone whom I disagree with.”

To be a troll, you have to show up at sites intending to anger and upset people, behave disrespectfully, and say deliberately inflammatory things, often things you don’t actually agree with. No one at CNN is in the slightest bit disrespectful or rude. We just call people out for saying stupid, insane, and demonstrably false things. The fact that it upsets (g)you to be proven wrong over and over again does not make me a “troll.” I can’t help your lack of maturity and self-control.

They are all very good at re-painting a situation to make it look like they are persecuted and oppressed.  In order for them to do that most effectively, they have to stick us all in a box and label the box a certain way.  I'm sure lots of the people that battle them over there are moderate Christians (i.e. Catholics, Lutherans, Episopalians, Methodists, etc) and might well be conservative on the political scale and are perfectly well behaved on any forum they go to, but Checkmate and company are always going to see them as atheistic "alt-left trolls".
