Stephen Green is the notorious leader of a shabby bunch of Christian flakes called Christian Voice. For a while I was able to comment on his blog, but then he started to get fed up of me taking umbrage at his nasty, bigoted stance on homosexuals and I find myself blocked.

The fact is, like others of his kind (i.e. evangelical Christians, see also Answers in Genesis), Mr Green hates being called out for the horrible little Hitler that he is. Deep down he knows what he is, therefore he will use every trick in the book to besmirch those who criticize and argue against him. He'll lie, obfuscate, answer questions with questions, quote dodgy statistics and insult the intelligence of people rather than engage in genuine debate. Note the following recent exchange:

I guess it is inevitable that atheists prefer myth to cold hard fact.

Social and medical science have clearly revealed the pathological nature of homosexual desires, practices and lifestyles, despite the special pleading from the, er, fairies.

Read ‘The Sexual Dead-End’ for the facts. Or just google ‘homosexuality practices diseases’.

Do you truly think it’s helpful, Stephen, to refer to homosexuals as “fairies”?

I think you will find it it was Barrie John who referred to the ‘fairies’ first.

Note how he twists barriejohn's reference to fairy tales so that it somehow becomes name calling of homosexuals. I've no doubt that barriejohn has tried to get this fixed, but is now blocked. Barriejohn has caught himself a weasel, but the weasel has reverted to type. Stephen Green has lost the argument; therefore he must do what all losers and cowards do - cheat.


If you don't know Stephen Green or Christian Voice, have a look at his site. It's so full of bile and hate I reckon most Christians shudder at what is being said in their name.

No offense Dave. But do you think if you get on a White Supremacist, Neo-Nazi or KKK website, you're going to change anyone's minds about racial tolerance? This is the same thing, just a slightly different agenda of whom and what to hate. Hate mongers exist, and are looking for justification for their (as you correctly note) "bile." They're not looking for rational discourse. In fact, that's the last thing they want. They're looking for agreement to justify their belief in their superiority, which belief is based on their inner feelings of inferiority.

Other fundamentalist groups such as the National Organization for [heterosexuals-only] Marriage [and incidentally denying that anyone else is a full, worthy human being] also cheat by blocking comments they disagree with, on YouTube videos as well as discussion pages.

As you said, not conducive to true discourse.

You have to wonder about a site that only caters to non-contrarian viewpoints.  What is it trying to accomplish?  How could anyone be persuaded to switch sides and join a cause they are instinctively or inherently against, if the discourse neccessary for successful persuasion is neutered by the persuasionist himself?  Apparently, that site is more intended for glad handing of a minority of like-minded bigots.
