“It’s not about ”taking my side”. The evidence against any sort of veracity concerning the character Jesus of Nazareth demonstrates unequivocally that you are wrong, so don’t put your dithering over God Soft Hands Jesus on me, thank you very much for nothing. You look for love? Great! Then why use a vile fictional character as a vehicle to promote it?”
““Vile” is not evidence. “Vile” is subjective. That might be seen (by the lurkers) as taking sides.”
“he has a vile temper”

“as vile a rogue as ever lived”
of little worth or value.
“all the feasts that thou hast shared erewhile, to mine shall be but vile”
Which just about sums up the biblical god to a T don’t you think?”
I have spent hours reading your words in my blog posts. You write much that is of value. And you write much that is not.
But today I learned something.
Not “this” (this I just accept) … You mix fact and fiction and call it fact. You insist others converse to your agenda. You insist on yes or no answers to allow the “conversation” to be dictated by you. You control and manipulate. And you use bad language to either shock and/or diminish the other person. All of that could be classed simply as “style”: “Good old Ark, there he goes again.” And I have.
But today I learned something for the first time.
You confirmed for me today that you are as much the same “poison” of which you accuse religion. You poison to perform. You perform to poison. You accuse. You seek no learning. You seek to lure vulnerable “brainwashed Christians” to (your) manipulative “intentional brainwashing”.
I have seen someone on your own blog “apologise” to you for simply typing an opinion you said was unacceptable.
You “proselytise” to lure others (three so far, according to you). Yet you detest those who talk about this “vile and fictitious Jesus of Nazareth” who are not even “proselytising”.
That is not “style”. That is your intentional choice. That is deceit. That is poison. That is so far from kindness that I choose to bar you from any further interaction on this blog.
You can suck the air out of a vacuum – I accept that. You are a charlatan – I can accept that. Whether you are “right” or not is irrelevant – I can accept that as well. But you always seek to demolish – you always demand complete submission – you always have to win (whether in measured or aggressive language).
And I learned today that you perform only to destroy others who disagree with you. By your own words. Which is evidence. And beyond all reasonable doubt.
And to answer your expected objection about “love” and how is it loving to ban you …
This is a loving thing I do for myself and others I care for. Some I care for can suck the air out of a vacuum – I accept that. Some are charlatans – I can accept that. Whether they are “right” or not is irrelevant – I can accept that as well. But those I care for seek to build – they seek love.
And they are the very people you seek to destroy, to lure away and to brainwash … that I do name as “poisonous”.
Even if you won’t.
