Your "point," such as it is, is mistaken. I *do* know something about the
posters whom I criticize. I read what they write. Is it your claim that
no inferences can be safely drawn from such material? If so, why? Many of
the folks I have in mind are pretty explicit in their expressions, after
all, and the things they are wrong about (when it comes to theological
issues) are pretty blatant...
Let's not lose sight of what prompted my original contribution to this
thread: Padgett's claim that virtually every Christian scholar thinks
capital punishment is un-Christian. That kind of claim is the sort of
thing I had in mind.
If reading/participating in threads that feature duelling theological
inanities gets you off, go for it. Doesn't mean those of us who don't
can't ask for discussion of a more enlightened character...
