You're on your own in this forum. I just ask the occasional question.
Usually good ones and occasionally ones (like this one) that it would be embarassing to answer truthfully. Oh, and that goes for your post answering the OP too.

I wouldn't consider it a loss if you never did post in this forum again, to be honest. I'm not sure I've ever seen a nice comment from you to me.

I'm well aware of what you think of me. You've made it clear in numerous posts. Feel free to put me on Ignore. My feelings won't be hurt.

Maybe you need to look in the mirror - after taking off your rose-coloured glasses.

Sho, Dew, if he did that how could we be entertained by his responses?

I would! Why would you say that to anyone here, I mean really now. That is uncalled for. I don't wish for anyone to stop posting here. We can all co-exist.

I would only say that to people that act in particularly mean-spirited ways toward me. I don't mean to imply that anyone shouldn't post here, by all means, they have every right. But I tire of the "smartest guy in the room" attitude.

If you're feeling hated it's because you use your religion as an excuse to discriminate, treat women and minorities as second class citizens, tell people their religious beliefs are wrong, want special treatment, declare your values to be superior to everyone else's, think God needs your help in judging people and (most important) you don't actually do what Jesus told us to do.
I would add because they condemn people to hell to the list. This is probably included in (or a part of) telling people their religious beliefs are wrong.

Good post.

Just to be clear, I don't think all Christians are like the ones described above. I know no one said all Christians are like that, but far too many are.
