CrossWalk Forums consider me "too radical..."

I've been threatened with being booted from Crosswalk Forums for the following (and I quote) "lengthy list of offences"...

1) In a thread started by a practicing LaVeyan Satanist where he was being dumped on and accused of the whole 'goats and orgies' garbage (great way to reach out to someone involved in the occult and show the love of Christ guys - NOT!) I posted saying that I was sorry for the way he was being treated by some of the others at the Forum and that as an ex-practitioner of the Left Hand Path myself (tho' not a Satanist) I had some idea of where he was coming from and invited him to join "'The Son and the Moon Forums' - a Forum set up and maintained BY and FOR exWitches, exPagans and others who have come to Christ from an occult background"...
Just for the record, I have referred several people who had been abused by professing Christians at Crosswalk Forums for daring to seek honest answers to honest questions to a number of 'specialist' Christian Forums, dealing with subjects as varied as 'Survivors of Spiritual Abuse' within the Church to the above mentioned Forum for Christian exWitches and seekers, over the past 12 months... This had never previously earned the ire of the management at Crosswalk Forums
So what was the problem this time??? ... "advertizing another Forum in breach of our Terms of Service"... of course, no mention was made of the abuse heaped on a non-Christian who only asked honest questions of those there...

2) In a thread where someone was asking whether it was "permissable" for a married couple to enjoy sex or whether it was purely for procreation I said "God made orgasms for a reason" ... the offence? The use of the word "orgasm"...

3) In another thread I mentioned the site "GodHatesFags.com" as an example of what NOT to do... My offence? I said "Fags" not "gays" or "homosexuals"... Sorry guys but "GodHatesHomosexuals.com" is NOT the name of the site I was talking about...

Just glad I can say "Puritanical IDIOTS!!!!" here at my own blog without upsetting the Thought Police...

UPDATE: It seems I am not alone in having run foul with the 'powers that be' at Crosswalk Forums. Many thanx to exWitch New Zealand for letting me know about 'The Badge of Honor' Website...
Rather than try and describe it myself I'll let them speak for themselves...

Are you a Christian? Do you visit so-called "Christian" websites and forums? ... Have you experienced blatantly inappropriate or unfair moderation, sanctions, or censorship at the hands of "authorities" on such sites?

There are sites from which, quite honestly, it's a badge of honor to be banned! Christians need to know about the un-Christ-like behavior of the people who run the sites they frequent. There is a time and place for removing people who can't abide by the rules. But when abiding by the rules applies to some but not to others, or the "authorities" make up the rules as they go along so as to target certain members of their communities, that's wrong. That's not how mature Christians are supposed to behave.

After even a quick read of the stories of others on the site it seems that Crosswalk Forums is not too good at making friends and influencing people... As they say in the classics - there is indeed something rotten in the state of Denmark...

1. The Anton guy? Which thread was that? If it's the one I'm thinking of, that kid was such a little...well, kid...


You can't say "fag," that's a profanity, or link to sites like that.

Satan and sex, can't talk about either around there.
