You know you’ve struck a chord.
I recently commented with a question regarding a Father’s POST on the Catholic abuse issue. His post was in answer or refutation of someone’s rather rude and profane comment from a previous post (perhaps?)
From the title of his post
Militant atheist: “F*** religious rights!” He asks about Jesus. Look Pope Francis!
Obviously, the person felt strongly, and so did the Father who wrote the Post in response.
My questions were more to where was/is God when the abuse was happening? I can’t copy and paste to show the exact wording, my two comments were deleted without explanation, so I will do my best to duplicate them here, opening the floor for discussion.
I first asked where God was and was He interested in stopping the abuse and protecting the children, rathe than just punishing the perps after death.
I guess both were very similar questions about whethr God was interested, willing or able to prevent the abuse in the first place.
I can understand why no answer. I would have been uncomfortable with the question myself when I was still a Christian. But the comments deleted… As if they were never asked… On a blog supposedly dedicated to… Answering questions and representing God’s mind on these things.
Of course I did ask, in two other deleted comments, why my two previous were deleted. They were not rude nor were they profane. They were just questions that the Father not only didn’t want to answer, but he also didn’t even want to acknowledge their being asked.
So… What would the answer be to my question? From both a Christian and a non-christian theist point of view.
I was able to grab the comments still in moderation from 9/24
He thought he’d be smart and post a separate POST without actually answering an of my previous questions.
Here are my comments to his second post.
Here’s the deal with both posts
The Father is not being honest with my questions, he’s still not being honest with his answers, he’s not being honest in how he’s charachterized my questions or my posts and he hasn’t even been honest in how he hs labeled me an Atheist. He hasn’t asked, I didn’t offer, but he assumed that I am because I am no longer Christian, as if all non christians or former Christians are automatically in the Atheist bin.
By the way Father, I’m not an Atheist. Just no longer Christian, partly because of the type of responses I have received in the past like yous from Christians, ministers and apolgists like you to honest questions.
He’s still hiding my comments, and the second post received a comment from an “Aussiemom” that again misses the point. She an his readers should be allowed to see the whole story, but I guess he’s not really into that. I responded to the Aussiemom but again, its in moderation to hide me and my side. I post my response here as well.
“It’s not kind of you or the father to lable me as atheist when I’m not. Please visit my blog for the other side of the story on our ‘conversation'”
I encourage all to read the posts he did with my comments. What do you all think?
Update again 9/27/19
And now apparantly he’s removed the both the second and the first post altogether.
I get a page not found when I go there. How about you?
Down in the bucket. You know what to do.
