The first post was made at 9:10 am:viewtopic.php?p=372972#p372972
Rollo Tomasi was able to quote the post at 11:08 am (almost two hours later!):viewtopic.php?p=373034#p373034
I made additional reference to the post at 11: 21 am, at which point I elaborated on the theme by citing scriptural references about apostates.
At some point after this, “harmony” went in and edited everyone’s posts. So the original and the instances where it was cited were in the public eye for over two hours, and yet no one expressed any inordinate outrage at my unprecedented use of what is probably the most offensive word in the English language.
Of course, that's because it never happened.
I call upon Rollo Tomasi to speak up. I know that, had I really
said what is alleged of me, Rollo would remember it. So let’s see if he’ll join the Suborned Witness Club in this affair. There is no love lost between Rollo and me. But will Rollo go so far as to also claim that I used this kind of language in my response to harmony? I am quite anxious to see.
Here is the post where I cited my own previous post and then elaborated on it. I invite anyone with a shred of objectivity and decency left (rare commodities, indeed, in this place) to see how the surrounding context is entirely inconsistent with the fabricated allegations that have been made:

There's no cause for you to treat Harmony that way, Will.
For one who apparently claims to follow Christ, you are acting decidedly like an anti-Christ.
You mean the same guy who said this of apostates:
Cursed are all those that shall lift up the heel against mine anointed, saith the Lord, and cry they have sinned when they have not sinned before me, saith the Lord, but have done that which was meet in mine eyes, and which I commanded them.
But those who cry transgression do it because they are the servants of sin, and are the children of disobedience themselves.
... It had been better for them that a millstone had been hanged about their necks, and they drowned in the depth of the sea.
Or perhaps you're thinking of the Christ of whom this prophecy speaks:
And his voice shall be heard: I have trodden the wine-press alone, and have brought judgment upon all people; and none were with me;
And I have trampled them in my fury, and I did tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained all my raiment; for this was the day of vengeance which was in my heart.
I will stand before God at the last day secure in the knowledge of my unwavering loyalty to Him and His Kingdom, and notwithstanding my human weaknesses (of which I have many) I will be redeemed, while apostates like you and dissonance (barring your imminent repentance) will have cause to weep, wail, and gnash your teeth.
The entire context leading up to the original post, and the context that follows--including that contained in the posts where my original text was cited--is consistent with my claim that the original statement was a strongly worded condemnation of harmony's hypocrisy and impenitent apostasy. Had it been the egregious vulgarity MsJack, harmony, MrStakhanovite, and Spurven Ten Sing claim, there would have been, without any doubt whatsoever
, a veritable tsunami of outrage vented towards me, multiple instances of people citing and commenting on it, etc. But, as can be seen, there was not.
So, Rollo, speak up. You were apparently very involved in that discussion. Will you also join the club, or will you do the right thing?
What about you, DarthJ? You were also there. Will you join the club? I find it very hard to believe you didn't express your outrage at the time. As one always quick to seize upon anything I say that you think you can use to discredit me, why didn't you
jump all over my alleged use of the dreaded "C" word with harmony? By all indications, you just overlooked it entirely. Why is that?
I will, with great interest, await the comments of both Rollo and DarthJ.
