locked References to Christ.

Some of us take exception to the discussion of Christ that is going on.

I mean, bash each other, or laud each other, but can't we keep references to Christ out of it, maybe?


Victor
 

I agree with you. Let’s make sure we keep everything respectful.

Yes. Penny, I'd like to sincerely thank you for speaking up about this. Some of us are practicing Christians and I myself, being a practicing Catholic Christian, am one of them and I find that using the name of Jesus as a curse word is extremely offensive. I always try to respect the beliefs of others, even if I may not personally share them, and I try to avoid language which might be considered offensive. I think it would be helpful to please consider this.

I would like to thank you, Penny. We were asked not to discuss religion and politics. But hearing people use Jesus Christ as a curse, is very offensive to me. We all need to respect each other the to be fair. We are a family.

Hi Group,

As I recall in this thread, nobody was taking the Lord's name in vain.  There was a reference to someone accidentally placing the letter 't' on the end of a fellow whose name was Chris.  I had done that accidentally years ago on another list.  I playfully referred t that incident to lighten up the rather intense discussion concerning the smart phone usability issue--since it was getting way off topic anyway; I was doing nothing more.

Some of you so-called Christians are a bit thin-skinned if that offended you!
With some of the references in the Bible itself--a few of the Apostles were a bit playful.  I can think of Peter himself who seemed to be playing dumb at times with Jesus.

In any case, I think enough has been said on this topic and the topic of a smart phone. Let’s all move on and just try to be a little more careful from now on.

The discussion started because someone said "Christ, Gerald," as a form of emphasis.  This is offensive to some people as for serious Christians, it is taking the Lord's name in vain.  That has been made clear and any such expressions, using any religious language that any believer in any religion may find offensive, along with vulgarity, is not allowed.  Further discussion is off topic for the list.  I ask that it be stopped now.

I was not offended by the story about the t being accidentally added to the name Chris. I thought that was priceless. I laughed at that.

David:


I couldn't agree with you more.  This is a technical list and our Lord shouldn't have been brought up.  Even though some people may have thought it was funny that Chris's friend spelled his name that way.  Sorry if this offends anyone.

Hi all,

There was one instance of swearing, which was not related to the messages concerning Chris and the misspelling of his name. That is the message to which we are referring. It's somehow gotten tangled up with the Chris business, though.

It is common netiquette not to swear, curse or use vulgar language on the net because these lists are worldwide and one may offend others. All we're asking is that common netiquette be observed so that folks aren't offended. <smiling> The original poster didn't even write his misuse of God's name correctly. He needed a comma. 'nough said.

Ann P.

I thought that story about Chris was great. That was not a curse. It is worth remembering. It made me laugh. I was not offended by that. I was about someone using His Name with Gerald. Sorry!


Gerald Levy
 

This all started because another list member thought he was being funny by referring to me as the second coming of Christ, which I found objectionable.  As far as I'm concerned, this topic is closed. Let'smove forward.   .

I did say, Christ Gerald, to get this going. I apologize if it offended anyone.

I also thought the story with Chris was comical.  Honestly, I didn't see our Lord used as a curse and I'm glad that I didn't.  I think we need to move on from this topic and hope everyone knows not to use the Lord's name the wrong way.  Everyone makes mistakes and what's done is done.
