• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Point Nemo.
Yep. Blame is the easy way out. It doesn't take any effort. Just point and complain.

On the other hand, it takes effort and education to look at every issue individually and find the root cause. Education, effort, common sense, compassion and patience are all things that take effort. Seems like many people don't want to be bothered by putting effort into anything.

Yes specifics are everything mmckenna.

As you will be aware part of this lack of self education and effort also brings bad habits which include using the words such as them,us,we and so on.

Specifics are everything.

I would encourage anybody interested in Christianity to read about the Hellenisation of Judea and the Middle East prior to the Romans influence.

The Greek influence in the area brought by Alexander the Great will explain the change from an old testament style God full of vengeance to a milder loving God.

I had a dream and in it Haillee Sellasee appeared to me in a smoky haze. He was descending stairs from a jet onto an immense red carpet. He came to me and told me that he was Not God, and that She was the same God for all people.

I woke up and realized everyone was worshipping the exact same God and hating her as well.

Have not been to church since.
