As far as my "attacking" church defenders, please consult Dan Peterson, David Bokyvoy, and Mak, here. All three of them can tell you that I get along with them famously, and I have certainly never made them feel as if I was "slicing their toes" when they have chosen to wade here at Shady Acres.
And, although I am far from perfect, I think that if my bishop were to compare you and I, it could be said that I am a lot closer to actually being a good Christian than you are.
You've made repeated comments about my lack of Christianity in comparison to yours. Such silly breast-beating. Good for you.
Actually, Bot, you are wrong. This is the first time I have ever compared my Christianity to yours...and I only did it in response to YOUR initial comment involving my supposedly "telling my bishop what a good Christian I am". The comment was so absurd, it deserved a response.
Your own words are what consistently get you into trouble.
I notice that you didn't bother speaking to my first paragraph that you quoted. Why is it, Bot, that you seem to be the only apologist on the board who thinks I attack defenders? Don't you find it odd that you are the only apologist who feels that way? Could it be that maybe I'm not the one with the problem?

'm used to Liz's mean-spirited Mod-sponsored attacks against my religion and my religiosity. No big deal to me. I don't come in this forum to get love. It is to bathe in the hate.
This whole statement is an out and out lie. I categorically deny that I have EVER attacked the Church on this board. Your religion, Bob, is MY religion, too. Are there tenets that I have taken issue with? Yes. But that is a far cry from disrespecting my faith.
What I have done, is rightfully criticized YOUR actions on this board. Your constant attacks against ANYONE who disagrees with you, whether they are believers or critics, makes a mockery of the priesthood you supposedly hold.
Also...in answer to your pathetic passive-aggressive attempt to insinuate that I am bias in my moderation toward you...I also categorically deny it, and challenge you to point to ANY situation where I moderated you unfairly.
As Shades has pointed out many times, we, as moderators, are allowed to "speak as a man" when we are not in red Moderator mode.
I have as much right as any other poster to speak my mind when dealing with you in a one on one situation in a thread. That is completely different from my acting in a Moderator capacity. If you, in looking back in history can find even ONE Moderator call I made against you which was unfair, I will step down as a Mod.
