Organized divide and conquer on the DP?Submitted by NCforPaul on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 23:03
Over the past week or so, I've noticed a rash of nonsensical threads dedicated to insane conspiratorial theories about Christianity; a sizeable portion of the DP being Christian (no idea of the percentage, but quite a few), this seems to almost be a concerted effort to drive a wedge in between all of us.
Let me make this clear - this is not just becuase I'm a Christian. I am immensely irritated by threads bashing an entire group of people on the DP, be it the write-ins vs. the GJ guys, atheists taking potshots at religion, religious folk taking potshots at atheism, etc. The entire reason I joined the DP was to encourage and be encouraged in the pursuit of liberty. I'm all for talking about difficult issues, but honestly, I'm don't feel like the DP is the place to go actively attacking and discrediting huge sections of the members. I brag to people about how the Liberty movement brings everyone together, regardless of creed, and how we're not afraid to discuss tough issues, yet still respect one another. Yet, here we are, with threads actively ATTACKING entire groups. WTH, DPers?!
