I'm not entirely convinced you have read the whole OP. I did not say it is wrong to quote from you favorite holy book. I said to not throw
them. To not stick your fingers in your ears and say "lalalalala" while you insist that people take your scripture as an authority over the
When discussing Christianity with a Christian, I will discuss it with Christian terms using the Christian holy book. I will not pull out the Vedas
and tell you the Jahweh didn't create the world because it was obviously Brahma. I will not pull out another religion's holy book and insist that
it is right and yours is wrong especially when it is not provable.
I guess an even bigger pet peeve is when the conversation is not about any religion in particular but about the nature of God/Goddess or just
spirituality in general. This is when I most often see zealots assuming that everybody is talking about their god and their religion.
Like you assume here? I never quoted scripture to you in reply to this OP. Your answer here assumes too much. I quoted a Sufi and a Supreme Court
I wasn't saying you did that. I was reiterating my point. I've seen plenty of your posts and you are not one of the offenders I'm talking about.
I do, however, think you aren't quite getting what I'm saying.
You are one of the posters that I see often keeping things on-topic and use scripture in context. My beef is with people who throw their scripture
without offering any commentary or explanation but simply hide behind a verse as if it answered a question.
Using scripture of holy books in
context (as you often do) is not only innocent but completely necessary to the discussion.
