[R] Poss. Trolling in CDT

Postby The New California Republic » Mon Oct 21, 2019 6:21 am

Alluding to non believers being "swine":

Locus Praemonstratus wrote:
Hakons wrote:You asked why God doesn't show Himself to us, and I described an instance He does quite often. As everyone could already guess, the problem isn't God hiding, but you not believing He is there. The Eucharist is just one example of God revealing Himself.

It’s probably unwise, no offence, to throw pearls before swine.

And another:

Locus Praemonstratus wrote:[...] These arguments with ‘swine’ rarely convert anyone except perhaps an outsider that is interested already. [...]

I'd like to add relevant information to this report. The term "throwing pearls before swine" comes from the King James Version of Matthew 7:6. Here it is in an easy-to-read translation: "Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you."

Jesus is not calling unbelievers stupid or subhuman in this passage. He is merely stating that it is unwise to give valuable things to someone who will not appreciate them.

"Jesus’ point is that certain truths and blessings of our faith are not to be shared with people who are totally antagonistic to the things of God. Such people are spiritual dogs and swine, who have no appreciation for that which is holy and righteous. They will take that which is holy, the pearls (the rarest and most valuable of jewels; see Matt. 13:45–46) of God’s Word, as foolishness and as an insult. ... Dogs and swine represent those who, because of their great perversity and ungodliness, refuse to have anything to do with the holy and precious things of God except to trample them under their feet, and turn and tear God’s people to pieces."
https://www.gty.org/library/bibleqnas-l ... fore-swine

This passage is certainly accusing certain unbelievers of being antagonistic to Christianity and living an ungodly life, but I really don't think that's actionable. Whether someone is or isn't hostile to Christians, or whether they are or aren't living by the Bible's commands, is pretty objective and easily seen.
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

I'm fully aware of where it comes from, as the Mods likely are as well.

Since there’s an open trolling report already.

Pretty sure yelling hail Satan in the CDT would constitute mild trolling as it’s clearly just meant to antagonize.

I'd like to appeal this ruling.

I had no trollish intentions as it was a response Diopolis to and Ghost in the Shell respective posts where they praised their respective christian deities in response to an event where statues got thrown into the tiber.

Nothing trollish or antagonistic in praising either respective deities or figures, be theirs or mines, and I believe the warning was non justified. They show their colours, I show mine.

Here for reference the postings of Ghost in the Shell and Diopolis, - who neither got warned for their posts - to which my post was a response:

Ghost in the Shell wrote:The satanic idols of Pachamama have been removed from the Church by faithful lay Catholics and thrown into the Tiber! Just as St. Boniface cut down the pagans' tree and as lay Catholics barred heretics from preaching during the early Church, two brave men walked into a church and removed the idols that were disrespectfully placed at the feet of Our Lady. They proceeded to walk out of the church and throw them into the River Tiber.

All glory to God! Ave Maria et Ave Christus Rex!


Diopolis wrote:Fitting this happened just before the feast of Christ the king.
Christus vincit! Christus regnat! Christus imperat!


So that is considered ok, not actionable? But my post is?

Appeal Denied

This is the Christian Discussion Thread, yelling "Hail Satan" in this thread would antagonize the other posters, which does fit in with trolling, as defined by the OSRS.
