  2. Thank you, @suspensewriter. We work very hard to keep things civilized, fair, and non-political on the site. I want everyone to feel welcome here in the true spirit of Christ. I left the topic up because it involves both Christianity and the writing profession, so it seemed relevant on both fronts. It's not meant to be a political statement, but rather one of unity. Censorship of this sort transcends politics and becomes more about fairness, honesty, and the free expression of thought and faith. I'm hoping as Christians those are all values we can agree upon and supp

  3. Yes, the type of witch hunt going on is a huge assault on Christians and free speech. I don't care what side of the political spectrum you're on, with very few exceptions silencing the marketplace of ideas and thought is not a good thing. I believe that as Americans, we should all be standing up together against the type of blatant censorship and cancel culture going on. I don't believe any reasonable person is defending violence, threats, or criminal activity. As a web developer, it's part of my job to know about different platforms. I'm familiar with both Twitter and Parler. In m

  4. I'm not so sure about free speech in the context of open dialog from all sides, and options is no longer a writing topic.

  7. Similar issue with art in general. There is a new craze called "art fixing" where an individual "corrects" the "problems" in other someone else's art posted on social media. This entails making the art align with the sjw causes of the day. Naturally, this has nothing to do with constructive criticism (which artists tend to accept well), or having a civil debate, and everything to do with shaming the artist and posturing as a self-righteous hero. The Bible does say that in the last days people will be lovers of themselves... It didn't mention duck

  8. Kiwigummy, I just put the first part of the prologue in the Critique and Feedback forum. The prologue is a bit lengthy, but that is justified because there are a lot of events that happened prior to the main portion of the story that must be explained. I understand that some folks skip prologues (I admit that I do sometimes), but this one is integral if the story is to make sense. Thank you so much!
