The Second Coming Christ Controversy: More Leaders Speak Out

Have to agree. Taking a Public Stand (a.k.a. Street Preacher, etc.) You are known for caps, criticism, and conspiracy. You are your own worst enemy on your posts. If you want to contribute you should consider altering your style. You are silencing your own voice. When your posts are purposely skipped or removed by moderator whatever point you are trying to make is lost. Really don't expect you to change, just hoping you will give it some consideration

Do us all a favor and just say something in a less conspiracy theorist/kooky manner that we can read and discuss.
