This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

So now rpg.net is anti-Christian. Well, guess that's better than pissing off Muslims, right?

I don't think we should guilt trip someone that spent $150 on this game BEFORE any allegations came out for wanting to play the game he heavily invested in because the guy that wrote it ended up being a douche.  That is like never driving a car today because we now know Henry Ford was a racist in the 1800's.

Actually, The Christians still following the contents of the Old Testament are going against the teachings of Christ. Christ's teachings were meant to supersede the Old Testament teachings. To end the savagery the Old Testament expoused.

The people spewing hate and bigotry based on Old Testament teachings are committing blasphemy in the eyes of the Christian faith.

I had a Christian upbringing. Studied the King James Bible extensively for a significant portion of my young life.

I still own my Chill 3rd Edition products. And I have every intention of making use of those books. I paid good money for them.

But you have to know that The Big Purple has their own behind the scenes reasons for preventing discussion of the products produced by Matt McFarland. For refusing to allow anything even remotely resembling promotion of those products on their site or forums. They have that right as site owners.

Actually, that is not completely agreed upon in Christendom.  In Matthew 5:17 Jesus said in the Bible "I did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it."  In John 14:15 Jesus says "If you love me, then keep my commandments."

The apostle Paul also spoke to this in the New Testament.

At the end of the day, we are to love the sinner but hate the sin.  We are all guilty of sin and fall short if not for his grace.

Spewing hatred and bigotry is absolutely antithetical to proper Christian practice, I would agree. Upholding the traditional Christian teachings on the proper role and function of sexuality -- which forbid quite a large array of modern sexual practices of all kinds, orientation notwithstanding -- need not constitute hatred and bigotry.

Unfortunately TBP's mods have long since abandoned that level of distinction; there is only one acceptable way to talk about the topic now, and it does not allow traditional Christians (or, strictly speaking, orthodox Jews or Muslims either) to defend their beliefs. If any discussion of such topics at all was limited by rule to Tangency, it would be less of an issue, but it's the explicit silencing by stance rather than context or manner that I find intolerable.

There is nothing in the Ten Commandments that calls homosexuality an abomination or even a sin. None. Zero. And those are the only commandments in the Old Testament. Everything else is based on the opinion of the writer of the individual book. Not the word of God.

To avoid annoying our host I might suggest that this particular rabbit hole is best not gone farther down into, at the moment.

That argument requires believing that the prophets of the old testament and the apostles of the new testament were only speaking their own opinions, not the word of God.  I don't think that's defensible in light of the rest of the scriptures.

Mr. Tannhauser has a good point.  I'll leave it at that.

Are you one of those Atheists who love to tell Christians what they really believe?
