Lol, I know I have. So much of that sort of situation arises from saying something not necessarily wrong, but saying it in the wrong way... it'll be a chill group for people to just get amusement from wry situations. Heck, the people that put their foot in their mouth often gotta find some way to have fun with it.
How'd you see the title? It was submitted to moderation, but they blocked it so I didn't think it ever went up on the forums. Fair enough move on their part, as it may have looked like I was advocating premarital sex (I wasn't). It was basically about the Greek root pornea being better translated as prostitution than fornication, and I was wondering how that would affect the way certain Scripture were interpreted. It's been my latest area of Bible research, and I thought I'd share and get some opinions. Ah well, perhaps i'll surface as a blog in the future.
Glad you found "dark humor" in it. Thanks for your comment. I should've been clearer...I see how you gathered that from my post though. I was putting out one example under the broad issue I initially brought up in the first post. Though I've never heard another use the term "gorilla" before this particular guy, I've had many a black person talk down about themselves/their skin color to me...and THAT'S what I find sad. True...not every one is that way, but I've come across many that are. Sorry if I implied that every single one is like that...didn't think I did. Appreciate your comments.
Sure, and I suppose it's reasonable. :shrug: I just don't see it as very practical, because people end up derailing threads whether they mean to or not, and sometimes it results in really interesting discussions. It only really bothers me if they're being rude or purposefully inflammatory about it.
