    And here it is. "Religious fanatics"..."Phonies"...Just the kind of tripe not tolerated elsewhere. Look, you can say something like "I dont' buy into that religion crap" and that's just fine. And you can say "I'm an atheist" and I got no problem with that, either. But, you jump right into peoples' faces and attempt to squelch their opinion and denigrate who they are. Please show me one example where someone "forced" religious thoughts on you (can you even force "thoughts" on someone?).

    I predict the ultimate downfall of this site unless everyone's opinions and viewpoints are RESPECTED.

    Duh, this is not for guns,necessarily it is off topic. Pay attention.
    "thall shalt not kill" is not correct, literal translation is "thall shalt not committ murder" which is different.
    By voicing an opinion, someone is not actually forcing their opinions on anyone. If you are such a sorry person that you feel someone is "forcing" their opinion on you, leave.

    Trolling should only be used on a fishing boat.

    Don't let the door hit you on your emotions

    I would also like a pm concerning this other site.
    I enjoy reading others insights and comments for the most part. Although I do not usually take part in the conversations, I do get perturbed over the ignorance that is occasionally spewed.
    Thanks for any info

    I don't know what computerdynamics issues were. He appeared to be down on the religious folks. I am not sure where he was going with the "kill" comments. Perhaps, like many, he had a bad experience with religion, or two or three.
    IMO, some of the religious people are in your face, force their ideals, and attempt to make you feel bad. IMO, its all about control.
    IMO, most religious people are very nice harmless people. It's the hypocrites, and the backstabbers who give them all a bad name.

    IMO, most religious people know that not everyone is going to think like they do. They know their will be critics.
    Most handle the opposition, and critics without causing a stir. They usually just ignore the hecklers.

    Regarding this websites longevity, I predict it will not survive if its membership is restricted only to people who are alike. i.e. all heterosexual, conservative, white ultra religious people.
    I know the admin/mods have the door open to everyone. The admin/mods are not the problem here.
    They are doing a great job.

    I worked in a gun store. You name it, it walked in there.

    We would sell to anyone who acted sane, passed the background paperwork, and had the money. We didn't care "what" they were. If someone came in, and started talking religion or politics, we asked them to take it outside. It is a well known fact people disagree, when those two subjects enter a room.

    IMO, the "clown" political postings have no place here.
    IMO, Isolating religion was a positive step in that direction. The admin/mods want to keep the arguments to a minimum.

    I think this is an fantastic site and will continue to grow.

    After being banned for asking a question, I have resolved to just put the active trolls on ignore, it's nice until someone quotes them. I'm sure these trolls would be a lot more polite in person or they would be eating through a straw for months at a time. I'm pretty sure they always return from their banishment by either begging or changing their screen names, either way they expose them selves with their daily regurgitation of hate and discontent, they should be exiled to an island with no Internet access.

    I butt heads with folks also but try to improve situations in the process. Comments by some really tick me off but I figure they are either burdened, convicted, or seeking decisions. My reaction to their cutting or irresponsible or immature remarks is what is important. Have done my share of lashing out or back and still do when I forget who and whose I am. We will never be perfect in reacting in a tactful manner but we need to strive towards that goal. Letting trolls(for what ever reason) get under our skin is feeding their needs. Some sites have an icon saying "DON'T FEED THE TROLLS". Good advice. There are also some who truly believe what they espouse. The "seeds" we show and plant can reveal who and what we believe in without shouting. IMO, Jesus was a quiet man who spoke in total love. We can not be as He but it is our duty to try. ..."He who angers you controls you"....

    +1, they call us hypocrites and yet they expect us to simply bow down to what they say. We are supposed to remain silent while they speak their piece. Everyone is entitled to their belief be it Christian, atheist, or any other faith. Discussion is good but trying to force the removal of one side of the discussion is the epitome of hypocrisy.

    I am not the one that moved the religious people to their own area. It was the admin/mods of this site. Do not hang that one on me.

    I am not willing to argue.

    Perhaps the ones offended by my use of the word hypocrite should go back and re-read my posting. Who did I call a hypocrite?

    What I said was most religious people are very nice. Its the few bad ones who give them all a bad name.

    What I also said was, a very well known fact. "Religion and politics are topics best left alone. They will always start arguments."

    In summation, in every bushel, there will always be a few bad apples.

    Mojo, I am not going to play your game. Find someone else.

    Never mentioned any names Iceman. Guilty conscious? My response was to a post concerning someone else's post.
