Greg, up unitl now your posts have been mostly Catholic and welcome on this Catholic site, but IMO you are slipping off the straight and narrow.
i wonder what jesus’ opinion would be.
I think most of the detractors of Tlaloc have been aware of his multiple posts on other threads in favor of Abortion and promoting anti-Catholic thought. They remember.
fair enough. there are a lot of people around here that hold opinions contrary to catholic teaching, and when they express those opinions, THEN those opinions are addressed. and if those people behave inappropriately, they are disciplined by the moderators.
what, exactly, is praiseworthy about this thread? what behaviour of jesus do we believe ourselves to be emulating when we thus pass judgment on a person none of us know just because he uses an internet name we don’t like?
Isn’t the theme of this thread -Why choose the name of an evil Aztec God ?
i don’t know. and neither do you.
i use the name “glaurung” on other forums. that’s the name of one of the first evil dragons created by morgoth bauglir in “lord of the rings”. i use it because i like dragons and because i like the ***sound ***of it. the fact that it names a fictional creature of evil strikes me as less then irrelevant.
The name is thrown up on our screens and is revolting.
to you, perhaps. but not to me. it’s just a call-name. to be sure, i find pedophilia and human sacrifice and stuff revolting, but using the name “tlaloc” has as much to do with that as being named “jeffrey” has to do with cannibalism and murder.
if you can’t get over it, isn’t that ***your ***problem?
It also has a tinge of someone hiding behind a Pagan name to subvert some of the treads.
if he makes subversive posts, address those posts and point out the subversion. it’s absurd to suggest that just having the name “tlaloc” will, in and of itself, subvert anyone’s belief. at least anyone with a normal psychological constitution.
It is sick, is not normal and it is certainly alright to say so!
just like the pharisees told jesus he was sick for dining with tax collectors and prostitutes.
You seem want to “go easy” with the Pagan.
who’s the pagan?
but if by “go easy” you mean smething like “be reasonable”, or “be charitable”, then i want to “go easy” with him, too.
