HAHAHA Seppe you have moved countries? What was the point of offering a guess on ethnicity in that post? The lord does work in mysterious ways.......

Sunbeam, they needed to try to discredit Seppe and since they had no other way to do that, they attacked what they thought was his nationality. If only they had the brains to bless themselves, so to speak, they would realise that this kind of logical fallacy has a name, and that the average person can spot it a mile off. Perhaps the author of that article would like to back up his drivel by registering here and engaging Seppe, rather than posting insults which Seppe doesn't have the opportunity to rebuke fairly. I doubt such a person has the integrity, or intelligence, to survive debate here though.

I realize the guy sounds like a nutter but any publicity is good publicity?
It seems you have taken umbridge with the opinions of one of our board members, and as such I would like to extend to you the opportunity to engage with us more directly through http://www.rationalskepticssociety.com we would appreciate your views on the matter.

We are a small board but appreciate the few theists who stop by to share there views with us.

We as a group of skeptics are of course skeptical of the idea that your prayers were in any way related to the decisions made by the site admins at RD.net but would be interested in hearing you explain how you brought this about.

Matthew 7:12 "Do to others what you would have them do to you"

Any one else love the irony?

You want me to read something? How about asking? :o A little "please" goes a long way...

As for my previous comment, I had a bad day. I guess I was a little grumpy.

HW the thread title isn't a command, it is written as though spoken. The article Seppe linked to is an article on christwire saying how evil atheists are attacking them after their "prayer offensive" on the Dawkins forum. The article is almost singularly about Seppe, and his post on the Rational Skeptics Society. Seppe's choice of thread title needs to be taken as it is meant, not as it may sound. :D
