BTW, ya'll what is a troll? It seems to be anybody that has an opinion you don't like. Is that right?
if one is willing to have a civil discussion with some reasonable clarity then I'm good with that but if one just shoots from their arse then one get's what they deserve. whack-a-troll...

I'm glad you are happy; it's apparent in the content of most of the threads, especially the one that has been mostly an attack on the Church. Lots of happiness there. But everyone is entitled to his/her opinion.
I am curious -- what is it exactly that you see as an attack on the church? There are a couple of unkind over-the-top posts, but most of the thread seems like legitimate, unemotional discussion regarding a statement by the pope. Is it the topic in general or something in particular? Just to trying to understand...
That is exactly why I took their comments as insulting. Altho I would usually agree that starting some kind of "forum war" is juvenile, the insinuation that we went after Catholics, and that our discussions over here are not intellectual is pretty mean-spirited if one looks at the content of that thread. The Catholics were defended as much as taken to task, and the thread evolved from there into a pretty meaningful discussion on religion vs science, and whether science could replace religion as a new moral authority on the planet. The assertion that we are running some kind of anti-Catholic "hate" thread was absurd and completely out of bounds, especially given the caliber and background of the majority of the posters who contributed.

Hi Ron,

Okay, so I've read most of the rest of the thread and agree that, for the most part, it's not a totally anti-Catholic Church thread. It does go on into more intellectual discourse which is pretty interesting.

But in the beginning there are definately some anti-Catholic sentiments there among several of the posts. Kirk even said the Church is taking a bashing here. Those made me mad and it's really just as simple as that. But that's par for the course in open discussion like this and I accept that.
But how can you blame the posters ? Unfortunately, the Catholic Church has done wonders at making itself an object of huge controversy, and the posts merely reflected the current state of events - not "hate". From what I read, the state of the church was what commented on, and we got plenty of comments on whether it was up or down. I truly object to the use of the word "hate" to characterize that thread, and to slander the forum in general.

Hello back sflori!

I understand and agree wholeheartedly with your stance in regard to the workplace comments -- there is no place for that kind of crap, especially in an environment where animosity impedes productivity. I also agree with you here, but also feel that this type of venue is held to a different standard. Nobody should have to endure hurt feelings, but these types of statements are often borne of ignorance rather than intent. For the most part, pointing out an insensitive post is enough to elicit an apology and a change in tone. You should have seen how a few of us jumped all over some poor guy that dissed Rickg a while ago. I almost felt sorry for him before it was over. [:D]

P.S. I think many of us would have enjoyed your input in the thread in question. Your background gives you a informed perspective that I would have definitely welcomed.

The idea that one should 'have respect' for religion or indeed any ideas (particularly scientific ones) whatsoever makes no sense to me. If I am guilty of talking or thinking nonsense, how cowardly do you think it would be for me to play the 'have respect' card? We should have respect for ourselves.

Feel free to disrespect this.
