@ No, it was this one:

"(We could say the same about lots of other divisive questions --
say, the nature of the "end times," the continuance of so-called
"sign" gifts,
infant baptism, [fill in the "C"-word] politics, etc.)" ~ David

  I always save these sorts of quotes in my archives, as proof that
there are no "behind-the-scenes" objections to certain words and
phrases that are used to bash viewpoints with which most on this list agree.

You will NEVER see me complaining about the people who use these
words and phrases.

I believe in free speech.

Only thin-skinned, emotional basket-cases (who have rejected the law
of non-contradiction and couldn't logically / legitimately defend
their "beliefs" if they had to), will attempt to silence those with
whom they disagree.

Quote: "Political tags - such as royalist, communist, [fill in the
"D"word], populist, fascist, [fill in the "L"-word], [fill in the
"C"-word], and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race
divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and
those who have no such desire." -- Robert A. Heinlein

Everyone on this list knows exactly into which to the two catagories he fits.

And so do I. :)
