I think you make excellent and accurate points about the tendencies of so many posters on ATS as to leave the aire, the gestalt, the feeling,
impression, spirit, detected attitudes to be
well in the ball park of great hostility toward Christianity and even Christians who dare to brave the flack enough to post their views and beliefs
I notice it took all of the 2nd post to your OP for someone to start calling Christianity MIND CONTROL etc.
It gets exceedingly wearying to put up with it. My relationship with Christ colors all I do, think and am and certainly the screen I view reality
Consequently, I may have a comment that may include that perspective's view on almost any UFO type thread as well as many others--because I see
SPIRITUAL issues involved inherently.
The hostily that ALWAYS triggers is fierce, virtually instant; almost all pervasive etc.
It seems that Christians--authentic, balanced, truly spiritual Christians would just rather avoid such flack and bother elsewhere. That's certainly
how I feel. Why walk on nails and endure relentless arrows just to post an opinion and perspective that 98% of others seem hostile to. We aren't that
much masochists. Christ died for us. We don't need to die on the crosses the hostile are so eager to nail us to.
I don't know that there's a solution. I think it's important for the authentic, truly spiritual Christian perspective to be put forward here on all
threads it is the least bit relevant on. OTHER PERSPECTIVES DO WITH GREAT FIERCENESS AND ABANDON. WE HAVE AS MUCH RIGHT AS THEY--though they try and
frame things 100% otherwise.
I think it would take a larger staff of mods with more fair-mindedness on THEIR PARTS toward Christianity to make a difference. And that's part of
the problem. Some of the mods are fiercely hostile to Christianity THEMSELVES--seemingly with utter impunity. That gets extremely wearying and
Am glad you started this thread. It's an issue that needs a thorough discussion.
