      And I'm apparently blasphemous too!

        Careful, now, big guy - that's bordering on arguing moderation.

        I'm glad you're here.

          Not arguing with anything. You're more than welcome to your rules, and to enforce them as you see fit. Simply pointing out that my statement about your deity is enough to be considered blasphemous against the Christian deity on this forum, yet this joker Starlight is declaring that I'm some Christian disguising myself as an atheist.

            I was kidding - and you never EVER should be rattled about anything Starlight says -- he tends to go off the deep end from time to time. Like the time he went on an unholy tirade about my fortress and major arsenal in my home, when all I had was a simple panic room and some weapons. (The simple panic room was simply a closet that, because of the design of the house, the closet door is hidden behind the bathroom door when the bathroom door from our master suite is open, and it always is)

            (oooops -- I said "master" -- now I need to go back to multicultural sensitivity training again)

            Seriously, though, we only keep Starlight here for the entertainment value.

              For years, Gond and I have gotten into some heated theological debates on Christianity. He is an atheist - or the best and most persistent actor I've ever seen.

                There's a reason I call him Dimbulb. Anybody who has spent any amount of time interacting with you on this forum would know you're a conservative but would not mistake you for a Christian.

                  A true Christian would not pretend to be an atheist, much less for a period of years. "If you deny me before men, I will deny you..." Case closed.

                    SL is indeed a joker. And for the record, none of us on staff have ever doubted your atheism. We are more likely to question the validity of someone's claim to Christianity than to question someone for claiming to be an atheist. So you have nothing to prove to us.

                    And SL is really rattled by you, obviously, because you are not a liberal atheist like he and so many others are, but are able to use the common sense and good moral judgement that, dare I say it, God gave you.

                    We ARE glad you are here.

                            Your biggest problem is your use of profanity. Please remember we are at most,PG-rated. So try to curb the cursing. Thanks.

                            I think in Starlight's mind, "Atheism" is inexorably linked with "Liberalism" so he can't fathom an atheist who is conservative. But we have a few of them here, just like we have some Christians who are liberals.

                              There are times I think Gondwanaland is almost too smart to be an atheist. We just gotta get him over the hump.

                                And the Christians who are liberals are not allowed to identify ourselves as Christians, right?
