      More venting, because I�m the club founder, and I
      can.<br><br>I�ve been monitoring �The Cult of Roman Catholicism�
      club
      (<a href=http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/thecultofromancatholicism target=new>http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/thecultofromancatholicism</a>) and took interest in a fellow there who asked
      about Calvinism. His handle is Skandia66003. One of the
      club founders, Sounddoctrine_2000, who professes
      anything but sound doctrine, responded to Skandia by
      inviting him to a private club wherein SD promised to
      teach Skandia about Calvinism. I quickly sent an
      invitation to this club, and pleaded with Skandia to
      join.... no answer. After joining SD's private club,
      Skandia posted to the Cult of Roman Catholicism Club,
      "...now I know why Calvin killed Baptists."<br><br>Ugh.
      SD got to him. I would make some noise over there in
      the CoRC club, but SoundDoctrine would kick me out
      the second he saw my name because I've had it out
      with him before, and he cannot tolerate someone
      addressing his idiocy and lies in a pointed, logical,
      Scriptural argument.<br><br>As a former Baptist, I get
      particularly frustrated at witnessing this kind of landmark
      Baptist garbage. It�s a lie. History does not record John
      Calvin as killing ANYONE. And anyone who says otherwise
      is either ignorant of the facts or a damned
      liar.<br><br>Were there executions in Geneva? Sure! The death
      penalty is Scriptural, folks. <br><br>Did Calvin murder
      anyone? No way. Not Servetus, not anyone. <br><br>Was
      Servetus killed by Calvin? NO! City Council ordered his
      death by slow burning. Calvin wasn�t a magistrate and
      didn�t have the office or the power to order executions.
      In fact, when Calvin pleaded for a more humane
      execution, the Council refused and went ahead with the
      burning.<br><br>Did Calvin hunt Servetus down like some kind of
      Genevan Inquisition? NO! Calvin warned Servetus to stay
      out of Geneva...Servetus came anyway. Calvin pleaded
      with Servetus all to repent and recant so he would not
      be executed... Servetus continued to blaspheme and
      refused to stop teaching his heresies. Calvin pleaded
      with the Council to get his sentence eased, to no
      avail. It can be truthfully said that Calvin was the
      only one in the whole situation that tried his best to
      KEEP SERVETUS FROM BURNING!<br><br>Was Servetus
      executed merely for being a �Baptist�? NO! Aside from his
      anabaptism, he also was anti-trinitarian who called the
      Trinity an �illusion of devils,� he taught a kind of
      pantheism which made the bench he sat on to be very God, he
      denied the eternal sonship of Christ, etc, etc,. If
      Baptists want to claim this guy and his teachings as their
      own, they are associating themselves with no martyr of
      Christ, but a martyr for Satan.<br><br>Now, I think I�m
      going to go vomit.<br><br>gmw.
