    I would like to add that with the license plate thread and the Religious display thread were both quite informative and civil enough to not get close to a locked or deleted thread.

    Well, whomever deleted this thread, be it original poster, or moderator, Good choice! If you think politics are devisive, nothng can hold a candle to religion, even when it seems to cross the line with politics.

    Your right JD the civility was out of place, the discourse was way too thoughtful and respectful, and there wasn't one link to a quasi-racist photo. It must have been very distressing.

    So what's the beef with religion Dogger? Don't like the topic don't participate. Some peoples devisive is anothers interesting discussion. Lots of things on here I vehemently disagree with but I don't go pointing them out to the Mod.

    KBullock; someone deleted the South Carolina thread, and it wasn't me. Maybe you should ask the people who have the ability to do that. The original poster, and, or the owner of the site, or one of his Mod's. That was their decision
    Photo shop is an amusing tool. Was the picture I posted very distressing to you. I don't think so. What happened to that witty, razor-edged sense of humor when it is pointed at you?
    Was the picture quasi-racist? In what way? Be specific.
    It utilized a photoshop function labeled liquify, not 'make racist'. But, pehaps in your eyes...?
    If you google images of Condi Rice as I did, you'll find images both flattering of our SoS, and some not so.
    I posted the picture of SoS Rice to contrast that posted by KG of Sen. HRC, to demonstrate that pictures can be plucked off of the internet in a wide variety of poses, and that all may be humorous or not, depending on one's point of view.
    If I have offended you in any way, I sincerely apologize,

    No beef, saltmarsh. I didn't delete the thread.


    We've made it known in the past that Religious debate is off limits for RTF.

    If you guys are debating religion on RTF, please discontinue it. This subforum is to debate political stuff, not religion.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    It is gone and I really have no interest how it got that way, and I have expressed no interest. You are projecting a position for me that does not exist.

    You went over my head here.

    It wasn't overtly racist, but, it was an interesting choice of character, it had a semblance of racism. quasi = semblance of

    Whatever, No one was debating as you put it, and if you hated it so much why are you trying to keep it going? I'm done. Have a great Christmas.
