But to the JWs he is not. My point is, if we feel justified in trashing someones God (who we ourselves worshipped at one time) why should we feel that to insult a man or woman is wrong? I am not defending "God", I am defending free speech! Let us be free to speak about each other just as we are free to speak about God!
It sounds like you are just absolutely dieing to slam some body. Anyone In particular?
You are assuming. I have no hidden agendas, if I wanted to "slam" someone I WOULD!
I am not defending "God", I am defending free speech! Let us be free to speak about each other just as we are free to speak about God!
Ok, so it's not about god. You don't care what is said about god. You want a site where anything goes. Sorry, jehovah can be trashed but not people, at least not on this site. Guess you will have to go looking for another site.
But if we did follow these outlines we wouldn't have fighting or wars or any such thing, and who wants that????
We need to speak our minds!
IMO, flame wars should not be on the "active" forum. They should be relegated to the "disagreement" forum only and not be brought to the top on the active forum. In that way only those who CHOOSE to participate will make an effort to find that thread.
I understand what you are saying, BUT! religion is a volatile issue. If I should say to a Muslim that I think Allah is a baby killing false god who fucks innocent people, but then I turn around and say to my fellow posters it is wrong to use the word "fuck" when speaking to other posters, then I am a hypocrite.
Jehovah and the wt theologies are just ideas/theories that i believe are mostly false. When those are attacked/ridiculed, it's different than when a real live person is attacked/ridiculed. We know there are real live people behind these posts. We aren't sure or don't believe that jehovah and wt theology exist in the real world. There is a big difference.
You are getting off topic when you bring allah into the discussion. That is because our previous programming had almost nothing to do w him. Instead, as the source of our fear/guilt/intimidation, we were told it was jehovah. We learned that there was a grave challenge against his abilities. That if some humans didn't see his side of the issue, he would loose the universe to the devil. We needed show such deference to this easily peaked diety, that we weren't to even speak to him as we might a buddy. After finding out it was a crock, whether he is real or not, there is a bad tatse in the mouth.
