RE: So, whose forum is this, anyway?
Thank you for the defense guys because I just posted about how much the subject bothered me and I don't like to think about it because it brings back bad memories and wishing their was an "ignore thread" button. (jokingly of course) And on a side note. I never claimed to have the best grammar. Sleepy

It was probably an honest mistake, the guy that made the thread in question has a screenname that begins sim or smi or something like that (would have to go look) so thats what I think Bucky thought when he saw your name and post. As for the defense, I always try and stick up when someone is unfairly attacked and I would hope that others would return the favor.

I knew that name bothered me when I first saw it. I was thinking it was too close to mine. Thanks again. I do try to do the same.

It's ingrained human bullshit, dude. Pack mentality. The only thing "atheist" is, here, is pack identity. There's other forums to talk about other shit.

Are you getting treatment for it ? Somehow I doubt it.
No one said "You are not normal for an atheist".
Atheism has nothing whatever to do with it. The reason you came here is because this board has a freedom of speech policy.
Anywhere else would have booted your ass off, long ago.
You are just plain sick.
You would be sick whether you were an atheist or not an atheist.
You were not DRAGGED, (there is no word "drug" as the past participle of the verb "to drag", ... a drug is a medication), anywhere.
You tried to present a disease state as somehow acceptable, and you got push-back.
Too bad. And now you want to whine about it. Boo hoo.

I don't know who you think I am but I have no clue what you are talking about. My ex husband molested my son and I hope he rots in jail for what he did. He is a sick and disgusting man that needs to die for what he did if it was up to me. Their is no cure for it. And yes someone did tell me I was not normal for an atheist because of my political views. Like I care. Why are you being such an ass anyway?

Sorry, I was wrong. I thought you were the same person.

That's it? The Bucky cannon misfires and blows this guy's head clean off and there you are, standing over the corpse quoting some Hitchhiker's Guide?

See... this... this right here I don't get... same with DT.

I just don't understand how a forum can become "tainted" by doing the EXACT same thing it's done since its inception.

For what it's worth, my crappy, no-good Christian opinion is this:

Anyone who has to "leave" or "walk away" from this place due to others expressing their own freedom of speech are hypocrites.

So much tolerance is preached by atheists... so many complaints of religious people being bigoted towards atheist because of their expressed view.

So what now? Because someone expressed a view that you disgree with, you leave? As nauseating as the view is, does that person not have the right to express it? Why are you entitled to your views and beliefs, but he is not?

The argument can be made that he is a predtor preying on children, but who are you to judge him? Especially, when there is no tangible evidence to support his claim. And, even if there was, that's for a court to decide, not some person on a forum.

If someone's freedom of speech evokes such an emotional response from you - especially considering the fact that it's only textual and not visual or incidental - then you may want to reconsider your own notion of tolerance.

You also may want to reconsider how an emotional response is evoked from you when prejudice is laid on you by the religious due to your beliefs.

DT and Hobbitgirl, I like both of you, and for all intents and purposes, I would consider you friends. I am not trying to "call you out" or attacking you, I simply want to shed a light on what seems to be a double standard among the atheist community.

And not just this pedo thing, I've addressed this issue many, many times. Online atheists, in GENERAL, are some of the biggest advocates for free speech until someone expresses a contrary view; they are then quick to cry for some sort of action be taken against the offender.

Again, I'm just a novelty around these part, so take my opinion with a grain of salt... it's just how I see it.

Excuse me, but since when is the disease that is pedophilia a view??? Is there some type of pedophilia church these guys are attending where they worship pedo-bear? Is pedophilia a world-view? Is there a class I can attend that might convince me to join the pedophilia movement?

This has nothing to do with freedom of speech. I've been quite tolerant of much bullshit on this site from bullshit individuals. But you never saw me making moves to get them banned. In fact, I'm not even making a move to get the pedophiles banned. I said it again and again, I only use the porn thing as an example. All you guys can argue is that it's illegal. I told you to stuff subjects like porn and pedophilia into a locked sub-forum with age verification (this is for the porn). With that suggestion, people STILL don't want anything to do with porn. I have highlighted an inconsistency here with my porn example.

No one wants porn here why? Oh, this forum was never about that from the beginning. Oh, no one gives a shit about porn. Excuse me, but I can say the same exact crap about the subject of pedophiles being on this forum. Yea, this forum doesn't want porn on here, but if you are afflicted with pedophilia... COME ON IN!

Again, what the mods do with this situation sets a precedent. You let confessed pedophiles join and interact here and you've effectively opened the door to others. Pedophiles, people with rape fantasies, people with an affinity for violence, etc...

Me personally, I'm fine with that as long as they are all civil and don't threaten anyone. But I do wonder how this will affect others. I do wonder what type of image you are letting this place obtain. Remember, the two pedophiles came here and only posted about pedophilia. Is that something else you want this place to become? A bunch of people coming here to post off-topic subjects without ever contributing to the discussion of Atheism, theism, skepticism, etc.? If that's the case, let's change the name of the forum. Take the word "Atheist" out of it. Because now it just becomes a public forum of random topics.

Again, again, again... there is a compromise. A locked, delisted sub-forum for pedophiles and other "Maybe harmless for their whole life" individuals that suffer from similar afflictions. Toss other topics in there that might be controversial. Maybe subjects like, "I fantasize about choking babies, but I would never act on it."

Want to know what tolerance of free speech is KC? Letting Holocaust deniers discuss their insanely ignorant theories. Letting truthers try over and over to cry foul. Letting vegans spread their evil hatred of meat. Those are pretty clear cut.

People confessing to fantasies of being intimate with children? That's not so clear cut.
