TD4....I'm responding, because I know what you have enquired through my e-mail notification of contributions to this thread.
The Roman Catholic Church, head office in Rome, in it's usual blinkered, superior and domineering, authoriatrian way, saw fit to forbid use of this version of the Bible in RC Churches, because it was printed at the behest of a King who reigned over a Protestant, Church of England Country....

Alexandra, I appreciate your kind, compassionate remarks, "Not because he's a Christian and I'm a Buddhist.
To my mind, there is no difference between two people who practise these faiths...."

My remarks about schoolyard children were in reference to earlier pages, granted, more about freespirit &familychoice than you. I want to address freespirit quickly and then move on, as you seem to be making a concerted, honest effort to get through to Dave. I think that is very admirable, because you seem very knowledgable AND open minded. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings by lumping you in the whole group, Alexandra. I truly am.

Freespirit, you seem so full of hate and anger.
"Oh davey I am so sorry I didint get to read your post before it was kindly deleted.No doubt the verbal diaharea was spilling out the sides of your godly mouth..."
"goodnight davey and give jeezus(sic) a kiss goodnight for me okay? Remember jeezus lurves(sic) you....Everyone else thinks youre a ****"

...and now you are throwing that hate and anger toward me
"People dont want to be preached to so just do us a favour and find oter people to "convert" you religious zealot "

I offered a simple explanation and you took offense and blasted me with all your anger and hate. You don't seem to show tolerance for many people, dear friend.

Whoa, I guess I have been missing a few things here!

Considering this thread began because Samten wrote an article on "Tolerating Intolerance" - and learning how to become more tolerant of others, it seems like the whole thing has gone downhill! And it has turned into a major Christian vs. non-Christian battlefield.

Dave, Trish, and I are all Christians - and yes we do refer to each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, because we consider God as our Father (no jokes about incestuous behavior w/ Adam and Eve, I have already addressed this in another post). But we are human, too and make mistakes. For example Dave and I do not see eye to eye on everything - he thinks I'm too laid-back, and I feel he's too aggressive, but we deal with each other about that. And many of you have seen when I have spoken with Dave when I thought comments were out of line.

On the other hand, I am not going to sit back and let someone else come in and start bashing on Dave just because he and I had had a few disagreements - that would not be fair. Intelligent debates are one thing - go for it, even the ones that get heated- I'm going to stay out of those. But here lately it has been turning into simply mud-slinging on both sides.

And as for Trish (babyquacker) - I can't remember a time when she has ever insulted anyone! I truly felt what was said to her was uncalled for.

I really struggled with saying anything, because I very much respect you Freespirit (and I know that last comment was at you), and I don't want to alienate you. I find your arguments intelligent not only here but in other areas as well. (Although I am curious as to what "sic" stands for?). So I apologize if I'm coming off as the school-marm.

But I think everyone needs to step back and cool off - on both sides of this (and all other religious) debates. Because as of right now we are not really accomplishing anything, not even good conversation. All we are doing is having fights! <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

For Christians, this is the 'New Year'... It marks the end of the Old and the beginning of the New. So for those who celebrate this festival, I wish you all a very Happy Easter.
