After a slight dust-up with a commenter who shall remain nameless, I can see it’s time to establish a comments policy.
I don’t mind criticism, as long as it makes sense (with the qualifier that since this is my blog, it has to make sense to me). What I object to is anyone who comes in here with a preconceived notion of How The World Is, and on the basis of that notion discounts whatever I have to say.
In other words: If you’re an atheist, or an evolutionist, or a Muslim, or worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster, fine. I might not agree with you, and may think you’re a kook, but I won’t say so (and if I do, you’re quite welcome to slap me). Where I draw the line is the idea that because I am a person of faith–and specifically a Christian–I am automatically stupid and irrational, and my thoughts and opinions are to be dismissed.
So: If you want to comment on my blog, you must accept the following premise.
I am just as rational in my acceptance of and belief in a Supreme Being/God/Yahweh and/or Intelligent Design as you are in your denial of same.
JUST TO BE CLEAR, I am not discouraging comments from atheists, agnostics or evolutionists. What I am saying is that to comment, you must agree that my belief in God is reasonable and rational. You may argue facets of the belief if you like (as an example, the three-in-one nonsense of the Trinity), but you will respect the belief itself.
Any comments disregarding the above will be deleted (and I reserve the right to snark on comments that I think are particularly idiotic if I so choose). Most often they will simply be gone. I also reserve the right to ban anyone who I perceive to be a troll.
I like to argue as much as anyone else, but there have to be rules. My blog, my rules. If you don’t like it…see ya.
