I agree with the Bible quotes thing completely killing a thread for me, mainly because I am not Christian, so the Bible verses A. Donít make sense to me, and B. Do nothing to help me see the opposing viewpointís side. Also, those Bible quotes are always out of control with their length, and I just donít have the patience or desire to read them.

And JESUS walked across the flannelgraph sea, waving at His peeps (Ani's thread made me say that! ) , walking on the water... His boy Peter wanted to to step out onto the fuzzy blue flannelgraph water, but Peter's faith was just as un-steady as the waves of the sea, and he started to sink...

Man, that Who Me?'s a real snot bag, isn't she? I mean, who does she think she is, anyway? Uggh!

Then JESUS called out to Peter, and held His hand out toward him... He reminded Peter that He was in control of the waves and the fuzzy blue flannelgraph sea, and Peter realized that he could walk on the water just like JESUS if he had faith. So they walked on the water together, just JESUS and Peter.

Parenting can be another one (spanking, breastfeeding, c-sections, natural birth/medicine, homeschool, etc.).

I can understand the Bible thing being annoying if you don't believe it, I guess, but I don't see Scriptures popping up very often, actually, and never out of context. If *you* make a claim about something in the Bible, it's relevant that people would refute or back that claim up with something from the Bible. Most of the time, from my seat, it's the people who don't read the Bible or believe in the Bible or whatever who bring up something negative or even erroneous about the Bible or the church, and then people who do believe respond. If you don't want to hear or read about it, it would probably be best not to bring it up.

To keep it light This is a general public service announcement. I really don't have the memory to retain who might does this, so I'm responding to the comments, not specific posters.

And to keep it even lighter, I know I am one of the people who will be talking about the Bible when the opportunity presents itself. I also start threads about it from time to time, but those never become long, I guess because people are ignoring them.

sorry, I keep forgetting stuff

I want in.

Excerpts from the lost book, Lydian Prophecy

LP 1:1 Thou shalt not use brevity in serious discussions

LP 1:2 Honor all black posters, that your responses may be short and kind.

LP 1:3 Thou shalt not appear prideful, lest you will be made to fall repeatedly (well, this is kind of borrowed from that other Book)

LP 1:4 Remember the curlmart sales, and spread the word.

This was a great topic I think we should have this discussion again. Only this time I think everyone should submit some photos.

I voted other.

The original topic is about turtles.

One person washes their turtle once a week. Someone else washes their turtle twice a week and thinks the first person is a filthy loser. A fight ensues.

There are too many turtles crossing the borders illegally. One person thinks the President should kick them out of the country. Another person thinks we should give them green cards. A fight ensues.

One person believes turtles are angels sent by God to show us the way. Another person thinks turtles are evil pagan symbols. A fight ensues.

A painted turtle and a sea turtle apply for a job. The painted turtle gets the job. The sea turtle cries 'racism!'. A fight ensues.

guano - I love turtles.

I think of multi-page threads as "find the fun icons from WilE and Scarlet!"
