    Default Thread for snipe, snark, and ad hominem grandstanding

    Since so many threads in this forum are now devolving into ad hominem exchanges between posters, I thought that perhaps a thread dedicated to this pursuit might funnel off the vitriol and let other threads have a better chance of avoiding such levels of toxicity. Here's hoping!

    Ad hominem exchanges begin with someone who has run out of ammunition. What is worse is having inaccurate quotes and misinformation. We owe it to the forum to at least be honest with our posts. As Harry Truman noted, people say I give them hell. I don't give them hell; I tell them the truth and they think it's hell.

    If someone doesn't like woke or CRT, lets force them to say why? What's wrong with being aware? When did that go out of style?

    Precisely the lack of self-awareness I was pointing out earlier, Chuck.

    one example: You are the one who resorts to ad hominem. Remember when I was responding to your posts by listing the logical fallacies? Want links?

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

    Actually "la la land" moved. Since you were driving your $80k pickup truck listening to Tucky, you may not have noticed. I know you think your shit don't stink. I wish I could just call you a fucking dumbass, but that wouldn't be nice.

    Okay, Kaz drives standing up.

    That said, the contrast of people, just like us ,taking up arms against Putin, with those here with their panties in a wad over masks and vaccines is too much to dismiss.

    I actually think the libs would pull out a can of whoop ass faster than the neocons. The neocons are chicken hawks or, "we'll send your kids, but not our kids. Consider George Bush's twins. Both are alive and well.

    I donít like CRT because it is anti Biblical (which includes Marxism).

    Maybe something pagan like consuming the body and blood of one's spiritual leader in ritual with chanting and prayer?

    Therein lies the problem. You don't know bible. You know what you've been taught.

    Do this in remembrance of Me (we do it cause we are told to by Jesus himself. Note that if you are referring to transubstantiation (communion is actual blood and blood) agreed that itís not biblical)

    TS I donít think you answered my genuine question in another thread. Do you mind me asking what denomination your father was a minister with?

    Okay, know some verses, Bold2013. It seems you know words but lack the import.

    I know the reference, Bold. I am pointing out the ritual's pagan roots. The eucharist is not the first time in human history that we consumed the material of the bodies of spiritual leaders, even in ritual. Jesus doesn't come up with that idea out of nowhere.

    If Trump was still president Putin would have never started this war (and Afghanistan wouldnít have been captured by extremists).

    God bless America. Trump was the author of the withdraw. Lets say you and I give a party and I make the preparations. I have to go out of town, and I leave you in charge. Are you going to take the blame if you run out of food? Didn't think so.

    If Trump was president, Putin would do the same except the US military would be handing out popcorn on the border.

    Not at all. I assume you are a decent person. You just seem to struggle with how to support Jesus and Trump simultaneously without looking foolish.

    Wasn't you that called the truckers patriots? Would Jesus have done the same. If you think so, support Bibilcally.

    You are a bit smug in your scripture posting as if everyone is going to agree with your interpretations.

    Hypothesis contrary to fact.
