I don't think so. If you weren't "paranoid," you'd be far more willing to post using your IRL name,
That has nothing to do with paranoia, unless you are "paranoid" too. You have never revealed your IRL name, and I do not imagine you ever will.
ala DCP, Mike Ash, Hamblin, Schryver, Wade Englund, etc., etc., etc. The fact that you've clung so tenaciously to your pseudonym is enormously revealing in terms of your paranoia, actually.
Is it? What about the fact that you've clung so tenaciously to yours
I'll simply point out that no critic I'm aware of has ever engaged in the wholesale interference in people's lives that's summed up by, say, Louis Midgley's assault on the Tanners,
The Tanners shouldn't have become anti-Mormons if they didn't want to be ridiculed by LDS Scholars. It is very simple.
or John Tvedtnes's attempt to interfere with Thomas Murphy's tenure proceedings,
Murphy produced dishonest materials towards the Church which cast the Book of Mormon in a bad light. If he did not want people to ridicule him or question his academic dishonesty, he shouldn't have produced what he produced. See how simple this is?
Plus, LDS paranoia is evident in many other facets of the Church, perhaps most noticeably in the secret temple ceremony and the secret Church finances.
Another teaching that apostates just do not understand. No wonder you left. The temple ceremonies aren't "secret," any worth member can participate.
I recently posted a congratulatory thread to Dean Robbers.
A veiled attempt to undermine another member's interests. Not noble at all. Tell me another thread you composed that wasn't an attack thread.
If you are so bent out of shape about apologists attacking anti-Mormons, why do you participate in the same behavior that you so loathe?
No. You're distorting the evidence, Simon Skains.
Sorry. I am not. You say this every time you get backed into a corner by me, Scratch Skains.
The prove it.
I don't care that much. I only care about the fact that you loathe apologetics for the very same behavior that you imitate here.
I disagree with Joseph's methods, and with a lot of his posts. He's clumsy.
No, Scratch. He's a d***a**. Just say it. He really, truly, is a d***a**.
Yes--I agree. That *is* a gem. I guess you play by the "rules" established by the LDS Church?
I play by the known rules of whatever event I am taking place in. I do not simply make up "my own rules" each time, like you do.
That's a "gem," too, and I don't deny it. How could I, when I'm singling in on acts of his that are undeniably evil? Is it "derogatory" to point out that Dr. Peterson has engaged in a smear campaign against D. Michael Quinn? Why, *yes*, it is!
So, again, we see that you believe that it is "evil" for LDS Apologists to behave exactly like you behave here.
And what about D. Michael Quinn... why do you always defend him? You don't even know him.
