Oooooh, Jinx. Bad commenter. No biscuit.
I'm actually a bit surprised that uber-Christian dumbass Jason/"Jinx McHue", just now, left a comment replying to this recent post, in which he wrote ... well, actually, there's no point telling you what he wrote since, based on a Jinx-related policy I established some time ago, I deleted that comment immediately.
For those of you who have been here a while (Hi, Mom!), you already know that, while I'm fairly accommodating in allowing anyone and everyone to leave comments, I draw the line when people start to become annoying jerks. I don't delete comments just people disagree with me. I delete them when people refuse to play by the well-established rules of civilized dialogue and, particularly in Jason's case, if you keep making stupid claims and refuse to acknowledge their refutations before moving on to toss out even more dumb ideas on another topic.
In Jason's case, Jason likes to think of himself as an intimidating example of manly Christian scholarship. In truth, he was thoroughly incapable of responding to even the simplest questions regarding Scripture that were posed on this blog, by myself and others. Instead, he would airily dismiss all questions with an arm-waving, "Oh, you people just don't know anything about Christianity."
In the end, I got annoyed enough that I put a very simple question to Jason: Did he believe in the literal accuracy of the entire Bible, both Old and New Testaments? It's a simple question, and rates an equally simple "yes" or "no" answer, which is what I asked for. Not only that, but I made it abundantly clear to Jason that he was not welcome to leave any more comments here on any topic until he answered that question. Quite frankly, I was tired of chasing him around so it was time to put up or shut up.
Jason suddenly vanished and I hadn't heard from him until today, when he was apparently hoping I had forgotten that original restriction. Um, no. It's still there, Jason, and you don't get to say anything here until I get an answer, and that answer must be an unambigous single-word answer. Nothing else is acceptable, capische?
Jason will, of course, whine and blubber about how that mean old CC is "censoring" him and can't handle the pressure of intellectual banter. Hardly. Jason (and everyone else who's been following this) knows full well that, if he wants to regain commenting rights here, all I need is that one-word answer, that's all. Until that happens, Jason, feel free to go drop your steaming, Scriptural turds in someone else's sandbox.
AND HE JUST KEEPS COMMENTING. Just deleted yet another of Jason's comments, in which he (not surprisingly) accused me of deleting him because I'm just too much of a coward to take him on. Naturally, he avoided entirely the fact that all he has to do is answer the pending question, and he's back in.
Anyone want to bet he's telling all his friends this story while omitting that salient detail?
