    What ever offending is is of course a matter of the officials here. But I didn't see it.
    Speaking about "offending", the Christians themselves have made many inflammatory statements towards Germanics, which are not facts, and could be easily retorted. And bragging about killing Germanic Pagans and destroying part of Germanic history. There statements were left standing by the moderators. I've only seen one similar statement from Pagans, the one about feeding Christians to the lions, which was in response to the one crushing Pagans with Christians armies of knights on horses. The rest was just normal debate. As Jael pointed out, nobody else advocated burning churches or going on rampages against Christians.

    What is offensive to Christians in that thread is that several of us have pointed out the non-Germanic, particularly Semitic, origins of Christianity, which are facts, and that a majority of voters picked the first option, that Christianity is as alien to Germanics as Judaism and Islam. They argue in circles, avoiding to address the essential question: is Christianity alien (i.e. foreign) to Germanics?

    The solutions offered in this thread are that we stop debating the sake of some imaginary Germanic unity. Or that the moderators shush us, for the same reason, and to make the board more accommodating to Germanics who register here to celebrate their Christian heritage, whatever that means. But of course they wouldn't support shushing themselves when they are "offending" towards Pagans.

    In the gospel of John Jesus says 7 times the words 'I am ......' and then he explains what he is. Among them he says 'I am the truth'.

    He puts it into the connection of 'being'. that is contradicted to 'having' the truth. If you 'have' the truth you are in trouble if you find out that it is not the whole truth but you have to change it. That doesn't work so you become combative.

    Christians also should look for 'the truth' as a feeling inside, as a guide to a relgious point of view.

    Heathen have the same in their values. To be truthful. It puts things into perspective. Discussion then becomes something different. At the end people are more likely to agree as being truthful and find the objective truth should come to a similar conclusion.

    It demands a certain kind of being and training to do. But both religions stress this point of being truthful.

    People aren't perfect (including me) but certain things could be avoided if one follows the value of 'truthfulness'.

    LOL the goodbye is redundant. In case you haven't noticed, 90% of people who are "calling it quits" return within the same week.

    Torchbearer is a currently active reader and writer on the board, so this thread has become obsolete and it's therefore closed.
    Please look at the date of the goodbye threads and at the last visit date and last post date of the members you want to say goodbye to, because it's not out of the ordinary for some of them to return.
