          You mean once he stops laughing ?

          How can you be intimidated by someone who is honest and merely speaks his mind ?

            As far as I can see nobody comes into or sets up a Forum to discuss anything especially if has a God issue or a religious theme. They either want an argument or an opportunity to start chanting scripture it's no wonder he lashes out once in a while.

          Same old...same old... day in day out they have nothing new to say and take far too long to say it.

      I fear no individual person when it comes to my civil rights.
      It's when people gang up on me, with the backing of the powers-that-be, that I get afraid.  Yeah, it's smart to fear bullying and tyranny.

          No.  They can take away my free speech.  Which they've done before, and which I've been threatened with having permanently taken away, hubs and all.
          You of all people shouldn't make light of that.
          Are you "safe"?

          Do you want to know when I felt "safe" in free speech allowance?
          Pre-Obama.
          You were there.
          Things changed as soon as liberals had their man running for the highest Office in the land.
          Or has your memory slipped?
          One liberal even boasted about how she/they could "say anything" they "wanted to" now that Obama took over.
          And now the terms "right" and "wrong" are used interchangeably at the whim of liberals and atheists etc.

          People who post crap shouldn't feel "safe" to post their crap.
          But these days it's people who post TRUTH that have their freedom taken away.  And those violations of conservative rights are now filtering into (actually being PUSHED UPON)our legal system.

          So, no, I don't feel safe at all in the majority of America's arenas.

              Ah, there's a difference between being afraid and being so intimidated that one gives up the fight for freedom.
              And this is not totally a "virtual" world.
              There are people behind the posts.

                  Aliens don't exist; neither does bigfoot; there are people behind the robots, and demons....well, demons eventually show their true colors;  while deceptive humans can get by with their crap indefinitely.
                  Yes, I do fear deceptive humans.

                  My "guns" and religion, as your master Obama so eloquently puts it.

                  And indeed my Armor.
                  Invisible though it is sometimes.

                  Don't worry.  I will always be alright.  Doesn't mean I won't still stay in the "battle" until I'm ready to rest.

            I think it's the condescending attitude that inspires the belief that anyone is possessed of a TRUTH that gets shut down.  It's not the idea of god or not god that gets banned, it's the acerbic, rude and demeaning nature of HOW people communicate that get them banned or not.  Frequently, people who think they have TRUTH have a hard time being polite to all the stupid morons who don't believe them and so they write in demeaning ways that get themselves banned.

            I expect the revocation of freedom you speak of has far, far, far, far more to do with that attitude than any censorship of your version of "truth."

              Umm....it's neither illegal nor uncivil to have "an attitude".

              If it were, I know several people (liberals, no less) who'd have been permanently banned from here long long ago.
              If "attitude" were illegal and uncivil, Mr. Swaggering Obama would've been ejected long ago, along with that chip on his shoulder and his mockery of people.

              So your assessment doesn't wash.

      no offense to mark knowles, but i don't even know the guy personally.  it's hard to be affraid of a guy that i never even met or at least conversed with long enough to know what kind of guy he is.  i know he has a lot of influence on hubpages, but that doesn't mean i would kiss his rump, in fear of him. no, my policy is basically you show me respect, then i'll show you respect, as it's a two way street.  if you refuse to respect me, then all that i ask is you leave me alone. 

      since mark never talks to me at all and i have no idea how he feels about me, then i can only assume that we're cool at this point.  maybe someday we'll become friends, or maybe not. who knows.  no, the only people in my life i've ever been truly scared of are my father, god, cops, gang members, and the government. that's all. unless mark has anything to do with any of the ones i mentioned, then no im not affraid of him.  no offense to you mark, but i don't even know you well enough to be affraid of you.

What are his other activities aside from blogging and making money online? In general I would like to ask his lighter side (I ponder making money online is on the heavier side) -- what makes a woman sexy for him?, his lovelife.... his favorite food, favorite place, favorite wine, sort of those things and lastly I will ask him will he apologize to God if ever he found out that God is true?

    The first time I met Mark I asked him about his thoughts on God...
    he grabbed the top of my head with his huge hand and squeezed so hard that I started to cry out of my ears.

    On another occasion, he sneezed and I accidentally said "God Bless You".  He yelled at me and then spit in my eye.

    On a third occasion, he preemptively pulled the nail out of the one of my thumbs before I even said anything because "I looked too holy"

    I resolved then and there NEVER to attend Church service with the man again!

    I find myself being more offended by believers who are offended by Mark than Mark himself.

    Why should believers expect someone who doesn't believe to act like they believe?  That seems ... silly.

    Mark's rude, sure. Blunt. OK. Opinionated? Absolutely. Offended by believers? Yep.

    Is he created in God's image? Yup.
    Is he a talented individual? Yup.
    Is he a good writer? Yeppers.
    Does he piss me off a lot? Absolutely.

    So, like all of us, he has good and bad qualities.  Again ... why does someone who doesn't just back down when you throw the word "God" around intimidate or offend you?

    God never granted us the right to be unoffended.  He gave us the choice to be unoffenable.

    So, tell me where it says we have to MAKE him or anybody else believe the same thing we do in order for him to be valuable to God? And if he has value to God by what right do those who believe in God engage in personal attacks on him?

    Yeah, as a non-believer his rules of engagement in a debate are different. 

    Why is that intimidating? 

    The apostle Paul said, "Jesus came to save sinners of whom I am Chief"... Attacking people is different than attacking ideas. The basis of our belief is that none of us is perfect.  So what if Mark points that out more than most.  If it's true, we need to hear it.  If it's not, it doesn't matter.

    Do I think Mark is wrong about the existence of God and value of region?  Of course. Will I go after his ideas and thoughts? Sure.

    But if I attach him, I am not attacking him, I am attacking the God who made him.  We who believe KNOW that our every word will be judged.

    Hmmm.... maybe I still have a plank in my eye that I should be working on.

      You're trying to defend someone's non-existent belief in God;  matter of fact, Mark has openly claimed that he's descended from animals,  as in basic evolution as touted by Darwin or some nut;  and I've never seen him show even a hint of desire to be a child of God (which, if he wanted to be, then your theory of paralleling Mark to God would have at least some integrity).

      I don't have the same beliefs as some of my family, some of my best friends and I don't think any less of them. they're amazing people. the same goes on a forum. just because I don't agree with some of the people here doesn't mean they're 'bad' people. that would be a crazy way to live IMO.

    Look again people.
    I didn't call Obama stupid.
    I referred to stupidity reigning.
    Others here took that to a different tangent.

    and I'm in good company, wouldn't you say, because the all-perfect Mr. Obama said a certain police officer or department acted "stupidly".  ?

    And anyway, I'm certainly not worried about Obama popping in here and bashing me.
    He would send his secondary tongue-twisters.  Like Robert Gibbs or David Axelrod, or some similar mindless-speaking minion.

    ...Maybe he already has!....

            Please point to any of my writings in which I have advocated violence against any of those or similar groups based on my beliefs.

            I know why I think those things are wrong.... I'm surprised that you would make a "moral" argument, as from a strictly rational perspective morals are subjective ..

            Rationally, from a non-authoritative moral stand point,  it was simply survival of the fittest. These groups exhibited behavior and/or genetic traits different from the majority of their local society ... it was in the nature of the animals in the group to destroy those other animals that showed traits they found undesirable ... it was simple evolutionary behavior.

            To imply that somehow we are "better" than that or that the act of destroying that which we find disturbing implies that some sort of irrational moral authority exists.

            Now, as I happen to believe that authority exists, on the basis of that authority I can tell you that I believe the behaviors you mentioned are, in fact, wrong.

            Based on an evolutionary world view, these were simply animals culling the herd.  Much like a wolf killing the weakest pack members.

            Your implications that they are wrong, seems internally inconsistent.

              You don't advocate violence.  I have never seen a post where you did however, it is 'chilling' to know that you are supporting people that do based on a 'moral principal' a belief in the same book.

              When you ask an abundance of christian's what the 'rider on the white horse' is, they will be split 50/50.  Believing the 'rider' is symbolic of evil or symbolic of justice or righteousness. 

              The complications seem to be coming from the very same origin and part of that is from 'indoctrination' or in some way believing that if 'someone is chosen' to inflict justice or avenge the 'saints' then it is a righteous act.

              Others will say, there is nothing righteous about taking justice with a double edge sward.  Meaning of course, conquering by means of force and equal slaying doesn't make it good it makes it ignorant and evil. 

              Now on morals.  There is no other way to explain morals other than by observation.  People were killed for all sorts of stupid reason.  They must have not thought much about the emotional and physical effect it had on the ones left behind.  In time, everyone could agree that 'killing' is bad.  We shouldn't do that.

              But society seems to have taken a huge leap back and decided that it is time for justice and the one commonality  they have is 'god'.  Whether the Bible god or otherwise, there is conflicting understanding about justice, righteousness and moral obligations.

              There isn't any righteousness or justice in the way 'they' are acting these days.  Religion and Politics will never mix but the 'blind calling' of those who say they have been 'called' to get rid of the government ironically, are subject to their own moronic false sense of 'god'. 

              If they were actually called to do the 'justice' and it was good, then you could be certain that the bs that is going on today would not be the bs that is going on today.

              So while it is true that religions have caused more grief in the world than anything else.  The one cause I see for the conflict is 'understanding'  Or as my new favorite quote goes from the Sentences of Sextus is that, "To understand you must have understanding, in all things is this sentence." 

              You know me better than most but if I was asked to stand blind side someone who mearly says 'they have the truth' or 'they have been called' I could not ignore the sward the sward in the right and pretend that it will do some good.

              If, for just one instance some could just not talk about god or say your god is right or wrong or whatever and that was kept purely personal, then no one would be subject and what is good would show as good and bad as bad but not because of a false belief in god.

              Good people are not vengeance seekers. Good morals are not justified by god.  Righteousness doesn't stand along side unrighteousness for the glory of 'god'.

                Politics and religion are, historically, a seriously messed up mix, and they will continue to be so. 

                Among people I love dearly are atheists, wiccans and gay clergy.  There are a lot of political liberals that I know to be Christians.  And I disagree with them.  A LOT.  But I love them dearly and they love me.  My personal relationships are above politics.  In fact, my first hub was to tell conservatives to chill out on the Obama-Antichrist Rhetoric. I figured it would be more effective coming from an insider.

                To say I "support" is a bit of an exaggeration.

                I've voted once or twice since 1998 and I don't think I voted in the last presidential election.  Neither side had anything that I felt like I could vote for.  I am absolutely against Obama, but the republicans haven't impressed me much since 1993 or so, and even then, not so much.

                I quit giving money to political parties and campaigns in the late 80s or early 90s.

                Now, it's true, that because of family connections, I could walk into the office of one of a dozen or so elected republican officials and have a talk ... and I am for smaller government, private enterprise, correct regulation with decisions made at the state and local level rather than the federal level.

                I don't think you've ever seen me use God as a basis for my political opinions either. I am Christian and I am politically conservative, but those are two separate facts. The one does not follow from the other.
