Re: A Christmas Message - list manager's note

This thread is way off-topic. Let's end it now, please.

Strictly speaking, Christmas greetings in general are off-topic, but
it seems innocent and pleasant enough. But, we somehow are able to
turn even that into rancorous discussion.

How about a New Year's resolution that we stick to faith-science
issues on this list (there are plenty of other places for general
Christian and Christian political discussion--say, Free Republic
blogs and forums)? Also, another possible New Year's resolution is to
leave posts unanswered that are obviously meant to rile up others.
And yet another, if write in an email that the moderator might warn
you about being off-topic, perhaps, you shouldn't send the message.

Finally, there are no off-topic threads for private email
discussions. Off-list you are welcome to discuss whatever you want
with whomever you want.
