To all Non-believers, and Atheists I woluld like to apologize to any and all that I have been rude to, shot or abrupt with. It is not my normal way of dealing with things and I'm sorry. I ask to be forgiven? Also if there are any Christian Writers whom I have offended with my ways I am sorry.
Brenda: Sometimes during the heat of discussion here in the forums I do manage to get a little huffy therefore if I upset someone, I feel I need to say sorry, if for no other reason then to show how a Christian should act.
Dave Mathews, I think most people on here know that most (or at least "a lot of" ) other people on here (including you) are decent people who mean well - and who sometimes get a little "short" here or there, or once in awhile. It's very "friendly-like" of you to apologize (to whoever was involved) and aim to set whatever you think went wrong, back to "right" (or, maybe, at least "neutral").
I understand what you mean, Dave! Sometimes, we get very passionate about our own beliefs, and just want to state our opinions, but as humans, we get a little bit excited about discussions, from time to time:-). It was very nice of you to apologize, but personally, even though I do not engage in the discussions all the time, I do read them, and you have yet to offend me. I have a feeling that you won't because I have the same beliefs as you do:-). I appreciate you apologizing, though-character counts!:-)
Dave, I hope my comment on your Almighty God forum the other day about sounding combative wasn't offensive to you. I just feel like there's often a great deal of venom spewed from both sides of the fence on occasion, and frankly, as believers we ARE the ones who should be big enough to acknowledge when we may have offended others and ask their forgiveness.
As for attention seeking, I'd suggest ignoring that remark from someone who seems also to be seeking attention. If you aren't seeking attention, don't post on a public forum. Just sayin'.
So, please accept my apology as well if you felt that I was being a bit harsh. That wasn't my intention. I'll personally be steering clear of the religion forums on HubPages moving forward, but I certainly enjoyed some of the civil and respectful dialogue with a good number of these fine folks.
Atheists do not need to apologize. We only ever tell the truth. Nice to see believers can occasionally understand how obnoxious they are and apologize for it. Pity they don't do it as often as they should. Maybe there would have been less religious wars?
I for one forgave him - he knew not what he was doing.
The thing that makes HB a good place to write is that we can have an opinion and discussions...people can agree or not agree. There are times that I've seen the discussions get a little out of control but within reason there is nothing wrong with that.
If we each make the effort to value the others peoples opinions then we won't ever get to someone feeling the need to apologize... I think Dave doing that is honorable and admirable and it shows his growth as a human being.
We each come from unique experiences and backgrounds that, to a great extent, shape our opinions. I think that is wonderful, don't you?
For all of the people who complained about unanswered emails and unpublished articles on Squidoo, Seth just posted on his blog about apologies:http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog … ology.htmlSince he doesn't...

Hi everyone, I’m going to keep this short and as non-dramatic as possible for your sakes. I just wanted to apologize for my behavior on the forums these past few days. I can make no excuse for the way I acted, other...
I just wanted people to say 'I'm sorry to me.' No one has made me mad,I just noticed those kinds of threads get a lot of attention.... Believe me, I was the kid in the back of the room begging for attention.
