If the answer to that is Yes...then I await your Apology for the lie emboldened in your quote

If the answer to that is No then I would still be C-Section Moderator now..and that hasnt been the case since the end of 2007
That wasn't a threat, it was an ultimatum. You make it sound like I threatened to physically beat you up or something.

Like I said, you keep trying to make every thread about you (just like you are doing with this thread) and that's not something that a moderator should be doing. The real mistake was allowing you to get away with it as long as I did.

Nathan...though your saved, you still go through Judgement. Christ took the penalty away...not the judgement of it. You, like everyone, saved and non saved still await judgement after death.

Secondly...as you've admitted we dont stop sinning just because we are christian, I dont understand why you make such a who-ha about one particular sin, and how the abstinance of that, or lack of it, should show about their eternity...whilst your own, and everyone elses, doesnt. Thats what ive never understood about you, and all those sinners, who pick on homosexual sin. A sin, like any other in the eyes of God.

Its only man who thinks differently.
I don't pick on homosexual sin. Homosexual sin picks me. I see it everyday; on the news, on the computer, in the supermarket, at work, etc. Homosexuals are the ones placing themselves in the limelight though. And that is why it is so often debated. If there were another group lobbying for adulterers to be accepted as okay then that would probably be debated pretty heavily also. But, I haven't heard much from them.

Some Christians have to fight sinful urges everyday just like someone with homosexual tendencies who is trying to live a Christian life. Christian homosexuals aren't the only ones who have to remain celibate.

Yeah, if there was someone claiming that they were born as a polygamist and that adultery for them wasn't a sin because that's just the way "God made them," then I think most people on here would oppose that idea just as strongly as we oppose the claims that homosexuality is not a sin.

It's the militant closed-mindedness of the Gay Rights movement in America that is inventing these controversies, like the one with Phil Robertson. So, that's what gets the attention. It's not that we're picking on gays, it's that militant homosexuals are trying to rob Christians in America of our freedom to live our lives in accordance with our religious and moral convictions.

I think that was my point...and yet I dont see anyone condemning them for any mistakes they might make with that. No...one feels pity and empathy for them. Its a huge double standard IMHO

The part that makes you arrogant, assumptive and wrong is in bold. ;)

You come across at times as an incredibly arrogant person. If somebody see's something differently than you they are wrong. Your statement comes across like this "You guys are ALL WRONG like NORMAL.. good thing I'm here to explain things to you".... That may or may not have been your intent but to me that was the message.

In this case you assume that because we're talking about homosexuality the we have somehow elevated it above some other sin and that's not the case. Because this issues is particularly challenging for you it's normally your emotions that reign supreme over your intelligence. That's sad. You're a smart guy. It's rarely the content of your posts that are frustrating Dave.. it's the delivery.

1) Chuck, there are some people on this forum who believe just having same sexed attraction, not only makes you sinful, but means you cant be a Christian. Yes...some of the folk here believe that. Those with a Calvinistic Disposition have no problem in saying that...and so you will forgive me for not giving the benefit of the doubt. This is a warfare subject for me, because people with no knowledge of homosexuals, their actions, the stigma attached to it, the feelings, and the hurt and division it can create in their own families, somehow ARE able to spout a lot of cruel and hurtful things. Well, I am through putting up with that. So everytime someone rattles on about Homosexuality, I will shine the mirror in their face...and YOUR RIGHT Chuck, it makes me look arrogant...because it makes YOU feel a lot like how I feel when people like Nathan say things to me, that, may be truthful...but the delivery is shockingly appauling.

now THAT is what makes me upsets me. I am not worthy, because I am...not because of anything I might do...simply for having homosexual feelings.

What would people think if it came out that Matt Hughes has a gay guy moderating his Christian Section. If AaeJae never left, It wouldnt have happened.

Nathan made me feel like a dirty little secret that needed to be silenced.

without even stopping by, I could hear this thread from the outside world. When I read the news article about this Duck Guy I thought "man, I bet my forum pals are all over this one".

I honestly, regard thsi guys opinion with the same weight I would if I was listening to him share it in line at the supermarket. Somebody who has no ripple in my life has a differing opinion on something. I listen and process it and go about my life.

personally I'm more bothered by the terribly scripted, passed off as reality, television show I've seen a about a half an episode of.

And who exactly do you think believes that? I don't believe that at all and I don't know of a single person of this forum who has claimed that.

You really need to start taking the time to actually read what people are saying and not just react to what you think we are saying and going off on one of your tirades.
