Safe place for discussion?,,,not likely!!

There is a blog called "Complegalitarian" which pretends to be a place for egalitarians and Complementarians to 'safely' discuss issues.
If it wasn't for the egalitarian pundits who frequent the place it might just achieve it.....on second thoughts it was doomed from the start. Why? Because of the rampart hypocrisy of the blog owner who allows the egal. commenter's to slander and impugn the motives and character of anyone who dares to express a Comp. outlook.
Now, sometimes it is dressed up in 'nice' language, but the intent remains the same.

For instance, if you support a Comp. view you are likened to a despotic Dictator, you are a supporter of slavery, you encourage spousal abuse, oh yes and you are an idiot who is incapable of even the barest understanding of Scripture.

On the other hand if you support Comp. and you express even the slightest criticism of an egal. commenter or poster and your comment will be deleted. I am not talking about a direct assault on the character of the person, but just the view they have expressed or (heaven forbid) the way they have expressed it.

There was at the beginning a couple of brave souls who tried to be posters on this blog to present the Comp. viewpoint on issues raised. They have given up due to the hostile atmosphere and the blatant attacks and misrepresentation of whatever was brought.
Like many things there are of course the odd exceptions, but they stand out for that reason.

Now, it will come as no surprise to find that the view most common amongst the posters is that the Comps are the ones who are vicious, spiteful and hateful whilst supposedly misrepresenting the egal position.

Avoid this place like the plague, it serves no purpose except maybe to show how not to do it.
