LN (and Trey as well) made fantastic posts explaining his reasoning not for the negative repping, but rather for his stance on Christianity. Now, the negative repping just for "lulz"--a little immature, a little ignorant, but hey, it happens. And let's face it. This is the internet. Red reputation? Not that big of a deal. That's what the rep game is for, guys.
Now, back to what I was saying. LN explained his reasoning, his stance, his opinion--whatever you want to call it--very, very well. Granted, he was a little abrasive, but who is exactly polite in a debate? Little to none.
Your reply? Just that he should "leave" if he thinks Christianity is hypocritical. There a thousand things that I could address in your post on my own, whether to disprove or to humiliate you--solely based on how you worded your opinion on things. I won't do that, simply because I don't like to get into religious debates, for one, and for two, I'm smart enough to not go around picking fights with entire FCs. Then again, it doesn't seem like you guys are putting up much of a fight anyway.
Getting off track again.
My point is, your reply was absolutely pathetic. If there are a thousand things that I could pick out of your post to completely decimate you in this debate--then I can almost guarantee you that LN could pick out twice that many. And unlike me, he'll probably go right ahead and tear you apart.
Next time, if someone comes in here to state their opinion about Christianity, especially when it happens to be a negative opinion--you need to learn how to defend your stance properly. Sitting there and saying that he needs to leave if he doesn't agree with you? That's just proving him right.
Dirk, I think you're a cool guy, a good member. But your debating skills are lax, and being apart of a religiously geared FC--you're gonna need to work on that.
thanks for the compliment, and i wasnt going for a debate with that dude. i know full well im not so good at debating. i should know, i took a debating class, and failed miserably. =\ whatever, but i was simply stating that we dont mind some critisism about christianity, god knows we get enough as it is, but that if he is going to go to such lengths as to give us bad reps, and constantly harp on us about what we say, we dont want to hear it. and dont appreciate it, bored or not. and if he feels so strongly about it then he can go vent in the spam zone, not in our fc. we arnt taking his comments to heart and we will not fall or divide because of his biast views. i think this wil, in fact, bring us together stronger than ever, unite us more against such stuff.
::EDIT:: the reason for the "not much of a fight" is probably because most of the ppl are pretty young. idk who is how old, and there are some new christians too, so they havent faced this b4. their just new, and probably a little intimidated too. *shrugs* if im alone in this fight, so be it.
