I assume you all know who I am, but for those who don't, I'm 98abaile.
First I would like to apologise to Heylow, I am sorry if what I said has offended you, and I regret ever posting it. I would also like to apologise for my posts trying to justify the original, as I understand they only made it worse.
Please understand that I in no way was insulting your religion or race, a few of my friends hail from different religions and I respect their and everybody's right to choose their faith.
Although I can no longer take back what has been said (the damage has been done), I hope you can find it in yourself to forgive my atrocious behaviour.
Secondly, I would like to apologise to everyone on the forums that felt offended (and also those that weren't offended, but were still appalled) by my behaviour, I understand that what I did was wrong (and racist) and although my dislike of religious threads is well know and cannot be denied, I am sorry that I voiced it in such a rude and offencive way. I again acknowledge the fact that my repeated attempts to justify what I had said only served to make matters worse.
Thirdly, I would like to apologise to anyone that has felt offended by any of my posts in recent times. Quite often I find myself reading my old posts and thinking that maybe I went a little (and sometimes a lot) over the top, and acted big headed and aloof.
I once said that I used to vet all my posts and that posts that: weren't necessary, pointless and big headed/bigoted, would not be posted. I realise that this standard has slipped, so I again apologise to all those that have been affected.
Again, I'm sorry for all the offence and disturbance I have caused.
P.S. For those that said I should also maintain the same stance about Christmas in any thread relating to it, a while ago (in a post lost in one of the nukes) I stated that I hate Christmas, not only as a religious holiday that is forced upon us every year, but also due to the fact that corporations (particularly Coca Cola) have destroyed the original religious significance of Christmas (i.e. the birth of Christ), and as such we now all have this consumerism forced upon us under the pretence of a religious holiday that I would rather not celebrate in the first place. So in this instance, I am sided with many Christians who are against the fact that greedy corporations make millions each year by hijacking a holiday that is supposed to be about giving out of generosity, not lust for money.
