Ben, I genuinely do like and respect you, but in these two threads, Fundamentalist Christians, Would You Say This Prayer and Fundamentalist Christians, Would You Practice Buddhist Meditation, you’re starting to get a bit tiresome. You come across to me as asking us Christians to betray our faith. Any religion has inconsistencies and things that could be nitpicked. Also, while I know you directed your threads at Fundamentalist Christians, we both know there aren’t that many around here and as we’ve already seen, other Christians, including me, can’t resist getting in. I realize you may be genuinely curious, but what you’re doing is the equivalent of saying to someone, “Would you beat your spouse?”
I’m reluctant to put this in the Pit because I’m more frustrated than angry, but I couldn’t think of a better place for it. Could you please tell me why you’re doing this, back off, or both?
