See Frank, you can't get through a post without the puerile cheap shot. This meme of me being angry has never worked, Frank.
You have a great deal of trouble in that area also, Setanta...and as for the "meme of you being angry"...it most assuredly has worked. And it is evident to anyone listening to your posts.
Why don't you get real Frank. You started this thread to bait christians.
I started this thread to ask a question I considered important...and interesting. It seems to me that if you do not consider it important or interesting you should not be involved in it. But you were one of the first responders.
We discussed my motivations early in the thread. I will stick with that...and your suppositions about my motives are nothing more than suppositions...and incorrect ones at that.
Sadly, it hasn't really worked out for you.
It has worked out just fine. It was started years ago...and is still going. What makes you think it hasn't worked?
However, the topic assumes that Jesus existed and that he never condemned slavery. If you now acknowledge that you cannot know if he existed or not, and that you cannot know if he ever actually condemned slavery or not, that's sufficient for me.
Good, I am glad we can agree on something.
It exposes the thread for what it is--not a serious discussion, but just another trademark Frank Apisa attempt to pick a fight with some unexpecting christians.
It doesn't do anything of the sort. It is a serious thread...and has been treated seriously by many, many people over the years. And it is, in my opinion, an important discussion to havve.
How sad for you that none of them fell for it.
That is so trite...and so predictable, Setanta.
In any case, I've had many people discuss the issue with me and I am satisfied with the discussion. Sorry you cannot be, but that is your problem.
