Please don't post gratuitously OFF TOPIC articles here...
It is a religious story about the power of forgiveness... Not one of your nine revisions say that is off topic.

This is a place where controversial subjects like Religion, Ethics, Philosophy and Politics can be discussed without resorting to shouting down your opponents or threatening to ban, or beat them up.

THERE IS NO BAN BUTTON HERE

Your ideas will have to sink or swim on their own merits. So welcome to the Market.

Have you been bullied, banned and shouted down because the intellectual lightweights and anti-religious bigots who "STILL own the ban button, Buddy" on their "moderated" insular and ghettoized threads? They can't handle being challenged on a level playing field in the area of ideas, so they ban you and then make snide remarks about you that you can't respond to.

This thread is a place where the Free Market of Ideas will determine winners and losers, not some jerk with his or her finger on the ban button. Of course those same cowards and lightweights will show up here as well, but only to hit and run back to the safety of their little gangs of sycophantic obsequious fluffers.

I hope this will be a place where controversial subjects like Religion, Ethics, Philosophy and even Politics can be discussed without resorting to shouting down your opponents or threatening to ban them. Insults are to be discouraged, but don't dish them out if you are not prepared to take them in return. If you can't out think your opponent, simply hurling insults just makes YOU look shallow and stupid. So lets try and see if we can discuss issues and leave personal attacks aside.

All opinions are welcome but be ready to substantiate them with facts or reasoned arguments."

I have; and so I offer this thread as a place where the Free Market of Ideas will determine winners and losers, not some jerk with his or her finger on the ban button.
