Hmmm... well, I do not know that pastor Wilson preaches that slavery is
OK nor do I know that Lee is a hero of his (though he would be one of
mine) ditto for the tax stuff. 

My point remains... ya'll are mean.  Religion can't be discussed
logically?  That might surprise Aristotle.  

So if I say that you (editorial you that is) might strive for more
civility in this list serve then I am defending slavery, plagiarism, tax
evasion etc... Well, I guess it would be a hopeless effort to try and
post anything more meaningful.  

I have looked into Pastor Wilson's church and it does not seem cultish
to me. Although I have only read what they post on their website and
they may have hidden documents detailing their secret handshakes and
other nefarious dealings with demons and heretical views.  I am willing
to listen to arguments to the contrary but I get the feeling those
making the charge are doing so in the dark.  Perhaps it is because they
despise a church with more theological backbone than the local
Unitarians.  I don't... maybe?

Pastor Wilson preaches that slavery is OK and General Lee is a hero of
He also tried to rip the city off by not paying his taxes.

The argument IS Doug Wilson. So it is not an ad hominem. In terms of
logic, well that doesn't work when talking about religion, we tried that

(see past posts).

Second, if you read his book, it isn't really his book, he plagiarized
This we already established by find word-for-word statements in other

Third, it is funny how people that defend Wilson always start off with 
EXACTLY the same line before they try to defend the indefensible.

If you want to defend slavery, plagiarism, tax evasion, and the morality
the South in the Civil War, you are anything but neutral in your views,
in the conservative state of Idaho.

I don't think the people defending against Wilson's hatred are
Liberal or Conservative. I think they are just concerned community
that don't like the hate, and power trip, of a man who leads something
is closer to being a cult than a church.

I do personally find the names of "Wolfman" and the like rather
and doesn't help the cause of cleaning up the racist trash laying around
community left over from the 50's.
