Some people just don’t get it.
I am now closing a second OP in a week, both due to one person’s persistent inability to distinguish between the discussion of morality (or ethics, if you want to go with David Gerrold in When Harley was One) and a discussion of religion.
Despite being warned many times that the article was about morality, not religion — even though the original article was published in 2015 by a religious commentator, and I pointed this out in the OP — this person kept injecting religion-tainted comments into his responses, mostly in a negative sense.
Morality is not inextricably linked to a particular religion.
Morality — right and wrong — is not inextricably linked to a particular religion. Or to ANY religion, for that matter. And to continually link the two in a negative fashion is, at best, a disingenuous tactic. Had a fellow Mod not requested the poster be allowed to continue on the site so the Mod could try to talk sense to him, I would have banned him for his disruptive behavior long ago.
This person exhibits a lot of behaviors typical of leftist trolls, such as “circling back” to the same position over and over again and other, similar, logical fallacies. While people left of center are welcome here for well-mannered discourse, trolling is not.
I’ve noticed that potential “right-wing” trolls don’t last long on left-leaning websites. So it’s hard to compare their behavior. Why? Because left-leaning websites and their denizens tend to have rather unique definitions of inclusion, tolerance, diversity, and freedom of speech — something they are always virtue-signaling and claiming that the “right-wing” posters are against it.
And, in continually injecting religion (namely Judeo-Christianity) it was inevitable that someone else would feel the need to defend his/her faith against these perceived attacks.
Since this OP has been devolving into something neither MC as the original owner nor I as the current owner, wish to see. I am closing that thread for this reason.130
