Chris, this is interesting coming from you, the same person who referred
to me as both "hitler" and I just found out while I wasn't even in the
channel on irc that you said I had mental problem.  I think you're not
in any place to say what is and is not christian.  Yet you accuse me of
name calling?

I have no interest in winning an argument.  For someone who calls people
names such as you do, insults people, makes judgments, all to avoid
humbling himself and apologizing, you definitely have no place saying
such things.  Seriously.


you need to actually read something instead of just citing it.  Please
point me to the specific word or words proscribing what you are
referring to, or defining it in the way you said it is defined.

Being condescending doesn't make what you did any better.  It was wrong.
Im honestly shocked to see such things by people who make bible
