    that any time I quote scripture, people get angry, I get attacked, and I get threatened with the banhammer? That, and threads tend to get derailed, trolled, flamed, and/or locked. Why can't Christians merely respond to the scriptures or refute the arguments they insist have no merit?

    Because your threads are not about getting answers, when people answer you you attack them, call them names or belittle them. All the actions of a troll. You don't want answers, you want to bash Christians. Such threads belong in the FLAME ZONE.

    Usually calls them mindless drones, stupid or needing crutches. Along those lines.

    Really? I presented biblical evidence against Jesus and asked if anyone had a response or could show how anything said or presented was misconstrued. Like you, these mentally challenged theists had no response but to attack the Reverend, as they had no refutation or rebuttal.

    I don't belittle anyone. If one is a moron, I'll point it out. If someone offers meaningful, intelligent, and honest answers, the discussion proceeds accordingly. i have had several discussions with kalam and EagleSeven regarding faith. These remain civil because they respond, not attack.

    Are they mindless because they are theists?

    No. They are mindless and they are theists. One might even argue that they are theists, in large part, because they are mindless. They are not mindless because they are theists. That would be a fallacious assertion as some theists are not mindless, but simply naive or misinformed.
