[quote=VociMike]I’ve been on CARM for a few months, after getting kicked off of The Baptist Board along with most of the other Catholics who were there (we were told, in so many words, that we were too dangerous to Baptists who weren’t secure in their faith).
What really impresses me on such boards is the Catholic presence. There are some tenacious and knowledgable Catholics on all of these boards who just refuse to let the slanders and falsehoods go unchallenged. It can be quite a faith-affirming experience to see them in action. the downside is that it can also be a near occasion of sin, if you let it. But when you see former anti-Catholics on these boards begin to explore, and then defend, the actual teachings of the Church, it’s very exciting!
I got booted of the Baptist forum too…I protested (via email) to Dr Bob and then the board owner who could never explain to me why I was removed since I have NEVER had any board violations…I was never told why, no explaination.
I was on CARM for over a year…the mods are known to turn a blind eye to rule violations from non-Catholics (perpeutated on Catholics). Matt Slick (owner) openly says Catholics can’t be saved unless they deny teachings of the Catholic faith…several of the forum members believe that and follow suit.
It’s a fairly ‘anti-Catholic forum’.
Fresh Hope forum, I posted there for a bit, more of the same, smaller scale…people allowed to post false teachings(anti-Catholic website info), claiming they are accurate teachings then you are expected to explain why…but when you say, look it’s not true…they either argue it is or stop responding…and of course the mods don’t see any reason to hold anyone accountable for that either. They do’nt require any sort of retraction when something is proven wrong. Heck even one of the mods was posting the false info. Basically they don’t want to hear anything that goes against their preconceived notions about the Catholic faith.
