I Think I've been Banned....
I signed up for the Coming Home Forums... moderated by... a Romanist apologist. I did so, because I was sent a link to one of the recent discussions about Luther and the Assumption, started by the same Romanist apologist. I saw this question, asked by a Baptist:
"I did notice that you did not include primary source citations for Luther's beliefs other than the sermon. Do you happen to know which one is being referenced? Also I can not find the book you quote first "Mary in Protestant and Catholic Thought." Did you mean "Mary in Protestant and Catholic Theology?" I am having trouble tracking down that quotes citation as well "WA, 30, II, 351." I would very much appreciate knowing what is ment by "WA" here. This might seem like a simple question but I can not this."
I saw this question and that it had not been answered, so I sent the person a private message, letting them know of my recent blog entry about O'Meara, and also explaining what "WA" meant. I didn't mention the Romanist apologist, or Catholic apologetics..or anything even remotely polemic. Well, a little while later, I returned to the forum, and my "Private Message" ability had been disabled-
Sorry, you do not have permission to use private messaging. You can probably perform this action after you login. If you are not a member, you can register here. If you are already logged in then the administrator of the board does not allow this action. Should you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
And then, my access to the forums while logged in was blocked. I can't view any of the messages. Nor can I do anything, except log in. It wasn't that long ago that the same Romanist apologist made a big deal of getting thrown out of Proapologian chat, and how unjustified it was, and since I didn't come to his rescue, how awful I was. Well, perhaps he didn't handcuff me on the Coming Home forums, but it is a fairly odd coincidence.
Well, no big deal- I simply wanted to send that message to that one person, which I did. If she got it, fine, if not, fine as well. If anything, the entire thing makes a for a good laugh, and points out what is fairly obvious about Catholic apologists....
Update: The Romanist apologist did ban me in order to keep the sheep safe. Well, he can always ask the person I sent the private message to to confirm what I've posted here.
