OMG! Does CEO really mean "Cambodia Evangelicals Online"?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Tell you what - I'll respond to you in the moved thread, and you try very hard to be a grown up and see if you can participate in the forum like the other grown ups. Get out of the sandpit, try for a conversation that doesn't keep regurgitating your "i hate Christians" manifesto, and for GODS SAKE CHEER UP, you miserable sack.

Mods, can we move these couple of posts over to the other thread? I'll do my bit to keep it over there.
Misquote by you - I never wrote "I hate Christians"...I wrote "I hate all missionaries". Lying to defend the "mission" again, eh?

It's meant to be taken personally - not towards you - towards your program...Brother. A misquote is defined by quoting false words from someone's mouth - the context, in this case, does not change the import and significance one iota.
Here's the actual quote from https://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/viewtop ... nts#p11472" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The local churches have the first point sewn up in spades - the uptake of Christianity through indigenous churches is phenomenal here, they don't need us to either tell them their business or get involved. Like the kid who gave his lunch and in turn fed the masses, we bring what we have (education) to those that don't have it and can't get it unless someone empowers them to change their circumstances.
Quoting involves context, but you know that. You misuse quoting more often than you tell the truth. You accuse me of fraud, and yet every time you quote me or anyone else you disagree with (regardless of topic), you are fraudulent. It doesn't surprise me that you've added the rider that I highlighted above - this is the last bastion of dodgy journalists. Are you that low? Are you as low as a dodgy journalist? Clearly, you are, and I pity you for it.

I deny that I have any need to justify myself or how I express my faith to you. In your words, "Period. Double Period." What's with that, by the way? I do not feel that by not answering your petulant, whiny demands for attention, my position is in any way lessened or altered. Period. Double Period.
dagenham wrote:Please try to be truthful here as you were in the post that I quoted from above. That was the only time that you truly revealed yourself and you are obviously regretting that now. It's doubtful that you will reveal any more of your actual agenda again.
What truly saddens me is that even your 'friends' are pitying you. Get help, man. Please.

Not atheist, agnostic or faithful. A non-believer here. Generally opposed to overt evangelism here or anywhere (whether religious or secular), but they are part of the price of freedom, so ultimately must be tolerated. Stroppy puts on a far more compelling show than dag, full of depth and honesty. He's got my vote.

I don't really care what religious types do as long as I don't have to hear about it, and that includes monks over loudspeakers at 3am. Hate them.

It occurs to me that the only response I should give you when you're re-repeating your hatred is this:

I've hit the point where I'm starting to regret how this has drawn out and clogged the flow, vlad - apologies to anyone who feels they've been subjected to this. I'll leave the troll alone now, there's obviously nothing new happening here.

If Jesus played hockey, he'd play every Thursday at 7 o'clock at the tennis courts across from City Villa.

Curious as to what "Theistic agnostic" means and how your views differ from dagenham's.

I always thought that "Atheistic Agnostic' was a bit of a cop out born out of our inherited age of empiricism mindset. Sort of like "anything is possible but unless you can "prove" it to me, it must be false" mentality. It is a very Safe (if somewhat hypocritical when criticizing others) position because you can always demand proof from others without adding anything yourself.
If you read, again, my explanation of my agnostic beliefs in the other thread they mirror the Miriam's dictionary word-for-word. A "Theistic Agnostic" from what I can ascertain is someone who is a stronger believer in a single god-like entity, than a simple Agnostic who doesn't even know if a "god" exists. There certainly is a hazy line between the 2 species and now that I think about it I probably fit in between the two descriptions. I certainly can accept that a "higher power" might exist but we mere mortals are too undeveloped to recognize it.
Yes I think there is a lot of grey area in these types of agnostics, and different types of deists as well. I cannot say I "Know" with certainty so I guess that might make me part agnostic. At the same time I "believe" which makes me some type of theist. I can say that when my belief is closer to "knowing", I tend to do better in life and when my belief is weaker I fall into error more easily and can wind up hurting others and myself. Thus my "knowledge" of a divine entity is "perceived" and "experiential" rather than anything I could prove empirically, and I am perfectly fine with that and have no need to "prove" anything to anyone.

I am by inclination, a deist of some sort but I go further in that I do believe that all religions have elements of truth to them and that "revelation" is indeed divinely inspired but always has flaws because no person is truly able to comprehend much less articulate the divine. Religion gets screwed up because it is interpreted and managed by humans, and humans can screw anything up regardless of faith or lack of.

i also believe that how you live in this world has an effect on those people and things that impact you. Call it Karma or whatever.
