Indeed, Henry38 ... I don't know how on earth I could not see the kindness and respect in your above statement. Silly me! Why, I can't count the number of people who offer me their respect by telling me that what I've said is a load of BS!! Shame on me for not feeling honored by you!
Perhaps I should have reciprocated the honor by saying that unless you can bring me the person who has firsthand knowledge that the Bible is the word of Jesus, then your lack of proof makes your statement just as much BS as the words coming off of my keyboard as well.
I can believe that you have never meant to be rude in the things you say, Henry38 ... but, unfortunately, on more than one occasion you have failed. In one post you say this:
quote:Ebony to this particular question my response is, "I do not know." I am not American therefore you are better placed to know what happened to your ancestors. It is a bit unfair to direct that question to me. You are saying it happened to your ancestors, so I accept your word for it. I am not in a postion to check or dispute what you are saying.
In the next you say you do, in fact, know American history ... however that that you don't know is BS ... whether simply because you don't know it, or because I, an American, am telling it to you.
I probably will, eventually, give you some references to documentation that supports the widely known history of slaves being killed to make an example of them for other slaves who were not anxious to convert to Christianity. I don't keep titles and authors in my head ... I tend to save that memory space for the information they provide. Had you asked me in a less rude way to provide you with it, I might have taken the time to do it by now. But you didn't and I haven't. Obviously you're not interested in knowing, anyway. And that, too, is fine with me.
