Again, for the avoidance of doubt, no I am not. An argument for clear rules does not imply anything about the integrity of those applying existing rules. I has never occurred to me to question the moderators' integrity, and I do not wish any of my posts to be read in that way, however incorrect the reading may be.

The rules seem clear enough. You believe there is no God - or believe He is not worth the trouble to be certain about. You are a non-Catholic. You are covered. I don't see your problem.

But I have asked, further, for an explanation of exactly how the present rules provide the equality of treatment supported by the moderators. I have done this because I cannot read the rules as clearly providing this, and also because I know how important words and their meaning are to Catholics. I still hope to engage on the issue of whether the rules as I propose them, and the present rules, better provide for equality of treatment for all who are welcome here. I hope this goes some way to answering your question.
Emphasis mine. I don't think you could have been more condescending and rude if you tried. "We" Catholics understand the rules perfectly well as written, and so do the rest of the folks here. You are the only one who has ever expressed any confusion about the rules. Deliberate obtuseness does not become you. Unflattering in the extreme.

I'm sorry that my words have been taken in that way. That was not the way they were intended to be taken. For clarity, I am not confused about the rules. I understand exactly what they say, and do not say. I have proposed words which would state in exact words the policy people are assuring me is the de facto rule. Do you actually disagree with anything I have proposed? If so, what?

I've already responded to your posts twice very specifically in fact. I don't think you liked the answers.

If you wish to pursue this you will need to contact [email protected].
