I appreciate your concern. That is the last thing I would want to do is offend anyone. that is why, as Lady Fitzgerald said, I am only making it available.

Thank you Ma'am.

I just think it is totally inappropriate for a technical forum. Like this "Jesus loves you" BS - who knows whether he does. If he would love me, I would not have cancer.

Ahh but now you are pushing your beliefs...

I am more then sad about your cancer though

I would defend your right to your beliefs as well.

Thanks Bill. The cancer is dormant right now. They gave it the highest dose of radiation for 7 weeks. But that had other side effects which are not pleasant.

I agree that discussing his Bible Study would be inappropriate for a tech forum. However, all he did was offer a copy of his Bible Study in the Chill Out Room to anyone who wants it and receive it via PM. The Chill Out Room is where people can go in Seven Forums to discuss pretty much anything tech or non-tech related, especially the latter as long as the discussion doesn't violate TOS, which I do not feel this one did at first. Had a long time member here offered an offline study of the Quran, of Wicca, etc. I would have no issue with that, either, as long as it wasn't a discussion of those religions (which, sadly, you initiated with Christianity with your last two sentences). Granted, Warthog did push the line a bit (ok, it seriously bulged) but he did not cross it, in my not so humble opinion. It would have been just as easy for you to have ignored the offer.

I can't respond to the last two sentences of yours without violating TOS but I can say (and mean it) that I am extremely thankful you are still with us (for whatever reason either of us may believe) and I do respect your right to your opinions even though I do not agree with them.

As an Atheist that wrote the site rules I think this thread is just about within them and if anybody feels offended by merely the mention of a religion then they should grow a pair or make it known to me that they are offended so I can have a good laugh at them (I hate the thin skinned easily offended more than any other group on the planet).

TBH though this thread is going a little off topic into religious discussion, however I know that was never it's intention.

Thank you for the clarification of the TOS.
