Dale in Oklahoma says goodbye to the Anti-God Troll PatrolSubmitted by Dale in Oklahoma on Wed, 01/07/2009 - 12:40
Never thought I would say it, but I'm done here. What was once a forum for people to discuss our liberties and freedoms in this country has now turned into an out of control 4th grade classroom.
No longer is it liberty and freedom for all that we seek, but it is a fight to see who can distract from the true test at hand. My Faith shapes who I am, how I believe, and why I was with you here to fight side by side. But somewhere down the line it became important for you to explain to me over and over and over and over..that according to your "superior intelligence" and a few websites and books...there is no god, and I am a fool among many countless other names for believing and living for my God.
There are many of my Christian brothers and sisters who have been preparing for the days to come for many years, and I feel that I am better off with their fight. What was once a very enjoyable and stimulating experience here on the DP has turned into an experience that I no longer look forward to. It isn't about what we can do to help bring about liberties and freedom, it is about putting our own personal belief systems or non-belief systems onto everyone else around us.
I'm sick and tired of asking people to be respectful of other peoples views and beliefs, only to hear how we "Christians" push our beliefs on people, as if posting a simple verse about an issue is beating someone over the head with a Bible. I have never condemned anyone or judged anyone for not believing the way I do, but I have prayed for a good many people on this website.
I am glad that the DP exist for like minded people, but in the end it will be the "Christians" they will come for because it will be us that band together, pull our children out of the beasts schools, depend on God, and depend on our labors and our neighbors to survive the crisis that is to come. I can't see going into this kind of fight side by side with people who care more about the fact that I believe in God, than they do my desire for liberty and freedom. Those are the people who will turn you over for 30 pieces of silver.
Honestly I didn't think this would ever happen to me, but the past two or three days I just stayed away from the DP and worked on my land and barn...I can't believe how good I feel, and how much thinking and planning can be done when you don't have to waste your time reading post after post of personal attacks because of personal differences. It is weird too, because this is supposedly a gathering place for people geared towards acceptance of others. Either way, I'm not wasting my time with the "Trolls" who have redirected the efforts of this gathering place.
One of Ron Pauls great lessons was to treat EVERYONE as an individual, and not in groups. I am sick and tired of hearing HOW Christians think, WHAT Christians do, WHAT Christians believe, and on and on and on. There isn't one person on this website who can tell me or anyone else how we believe or what we personally think. Only God knows our hearts and minds, and only God knows what is to come and how all will be judged. That is not up to me, and in fact my judgment of others is forbidden. I don't require a title, all I need is my Bible. On the other hand there have been some very good discussions regarding religion and Faith, when the right players were involved. Unfortunately the most vocal people are also the most immature people who obviously don't understand what exactly we WERE trying to accomplish on the DP. Their goals of feeling superior clouded their eyes and have blinded this small part of the revolution.
I wish everyone here the best of luck, and perhaps some day when we are again concerned with basic liberties and freedoms, we will meet again.
