Their loss....they banned you from there, it's good thing for you since it's difficult to reason with some folks.

Well, you'll get over it and live on, I'm sure.
Too bad on the other side though. They have now thrown away the chance to discuss and maybe learn something from you, someone who apparently has a few different ideas from some of them.
I don't hang with people who totally oppose my views, but I do like it when someone says they disagree with me occasioanlly and we have a discussion about it. I find it a learning experience.
Unless it's because you were being an arse there, they are clearly of closed mind. Most unfortunate -- they have decided not to learn and grow, dragging another generation with them.

How about we rephrase one thing in your post? Let's phrase it this way: Banned from a so-called or self-proclaimed "Christian Bulletin Board" and I'm "Born Again." Since I too am "Born Again" and I have no problem with believing that many "Christian Bulletin Boards" are the least "Christian" ones out there I think the addition warranted. It amazes me that sometimes the people who have received God's grace are the least likely to share it with others. Brother, unfortunately being a Christian doesn't make one perfect, so I have learned to accept the fact that only One will never fail me nor do me any wrong or harm. If I am on His Bulletin Board all the rest don't really matter.

One other thing to remember, by being banned from the board you join a rather elite group - They rejected Him too.

Ooooooooh I NEVER thought of it that way! WOW.

So my bud will pm one and he'll get the essay and redistribute it offsite and all will be well.
Is the Sheepdog essay by Dave Grossman (LTC ret) objectionable in any way? Any "bad" words?
I even have Grossman's personal legal permission to use the essay in a script I'm writing as voiceover narration.

Sometimes an article that causes thought and deep reflection is "objectionable" to some people.

Also, speaking the TRUTH can infuriate those that know that they dont operate in it. Remember that it was the religious folk of the day, that rejected the truth and killed it...

I was unchurched and non-baptised until I was 31. While in graduate school I discovered something was missing in my life. I did not know what that was, so I went looking for that "something" and found it was God. My search did not take a year or two but much longer, I went to many different churches but never felt called by them except for one. I am not born again but only born once in Christ. This might be off topic but George struck a chord with me. Because of my appearence (I'm a historical re-enactor and look scruffy by today's standards) I do not think I was excepted by most congregations on my 1st visit. Some people do not remember the teachings of their reglion whatever religion that may be. Some even prevert that religion into a thing of evil. I will stop now and apologize if I have offended anyone. In the four years since my Baptism, I have lead others and now teach Sunday school at my church. I have been asked by other denominations to speak to their congregations about my finding God. If anyone wants to hear more from me about this just PM me. Once again I apologize if I went to far off topic

Ex is too much of a good person to be banned anywhere. I have the pleasure and honor to know him and I can't imagine anybody subjecting him to cyber-ostracism.

It's called perspective, and a larger, sharper, more-refined one is always better. Particularly when we're talking about our lives and survival against those who would take their cock-eyed perspectives (aka, criminal perps) and make us subject to their crimes. Hm. I've never quite understood why it's often not just faith ... but blind faith. Blind faith is just that.
In short: It's tough to see, with one's eyes so tightly closed. Always has been. Always will be.
