You guys are talking about me? Yes, Gunnar. My long history with you dates back to my first post on a message board! I thought I was about to have my brains bashed out of my head with that first post, too!Gunnar wrote: ↑Thu May 21, 2020 1:46 amI have a much longer history with Jersey Girl than you have, and she will attest that there have been longstanding disagreements between her and me as well. Nevertheless, we have managed to develop a strong friendship and rapport with each other. We have even each yielded to the other's point of view and resolved our differences of opinion on occasion. I think I can fairly say that both of us have altered each other's opinions and understanding for the better, over all, based on honestly considering opposing arguments of the other. I won't presume to say which of us has had the most wins in our disputes, but I think she would agree that both of us have had both wins and losses. In general, though, the points on which she and I still disagree are the same ones on which she and you disagree, with my views almost invariably coinciding with yours, rather than hers.Some Schmo wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 10:27 pmI actually have had a pretty long, somewhat rocky relationship with Jersey Girl. When we first started interacting, we would have some pretty good arguments. I told her a long time ago that I respected her, and that I would always be completely straight with her. Clearly we disagree on some fundamental things, but I think there have been times when I may have spoken less artfully and she mistook my intent. I also think there are times when she has overreacted to my comments... for a time.
But I always take what she says seriously, and I believe she means well. Yeah, I like Jersey Girl. She's like a lot of people I know - drive me nuts but I can't seem to quit them.
I particularly agree with the part of your comments that I bolded and underlined. She is a good, compassionate, and generous person. As I said before, if all Christians were like her, the world would be a much better place, and DJT would never have been elected.
I'll never forget when I realized that other people could read my post and were talking about me. "Just another fundie, she'll be gone in a week".
Yeah, well I'm still here.
