Hi (I'm not sure what to call this section)

I have been a CP editor since 2017 and I see that you became inactive on this site since 2015 and have become active again. I've tried my best to bring useful and conservative content to this site, but some of the edits I've seen in your edit history have made me nervous. I've developed a rapport with several admins/sysops on this site, but I have gotten the impression that you may be more strict than they are. I am attempting to be diplomatic and polite but also honest Shobson20 (talk) 22:27, 19 April 2019 (EDT)

It's a pleasure to meet you. I've always believed in the approach 'move forward with what you think is right, and when your colleagues disagree, come to a consensus.' DouglasA (talk) 06:17, 20 April 2019 (EDT)
I notice that you're big about Christian-friendly content, take a look at some of the essays that I've created, especially Essay:Virtue: Christian vs secular and Essay:Counter-cultural Christianity. The point of these was to show how people who hold fast to Christian values. I am dismayed at the fact that I haven't picked up contributors like all of the "greatest conservative..." and "worst liberal..." essays. I'm not sure what you think about Christian rock, but in my songs list, I've tried to point out the Christian songs that run very counter to the very anti-Christian messages in mainstream music, which is surprisingly difficult as many Christian Rock and CCM artists avoid subject matter that could be uncomfortable. But when they do address those issues, the message really shines. Shobson20 (talk) 12:44, 20 April 2019 (EDT)

Robocop

I don't know if this is relevant or not, but Paul Verhoeven is a member of the Liberal "Jesus Seminar" and I think that played a role in why the movie is "Also a grotesque parody of Christ's resurrection." Since I knew it was hailed as a classic and a pop-culture icon, I wanted to see it for curiosity, and was so appalled by it's blatantly liberal, ham-fisted, anti-capitalism message. I got even angrier when I saw interviews the creators condemning capitalism when capitalism made them rich. Does it really depict cops as bad though? The cop characters who are most prominent in the movie, Alex Murphy (the guy who becomes Robocop), his partner Anne Lewis, and the sergeant Warren Reed were characters who actually believed in doing what cops should do. To quote the Robocop wiki about Reed: "To him, a police officer was not merely doing a job - they were a vital staple of society, the face of civilized society, representing the people, the restraint and the triumph of law over lawlessness." The real problem is that it depicts the Detroit Police Department as being owned by OCP, promoting the liberal myth that corporations control the government when in reality it's the government that has too much control over private business.

I had no idea that Verhoeven was in the Jesus Seminar. Doesn't give you much faith in that group's credentials, does it?! DouglasA (talk) 15:55, 24 April 2019 (EDT)
I think its also worth noting how the movie's marketing makes it look like it's going to be just a movie about a cool robot cop, and if it was, it would be a much cooler movie, but no, they had to put in all that liberal anti-capitalism nonsense in the movie. I assume that your calling Verhoeven a "smut-peddler" is due to the fact that he directed Showgirls, right? Showgirls should also be in the worst liberal movies list, but I could never bring myself to watch such filth even to describe why it's so bad. Shobson20 (talk) 16:26, 24 April 2019 (EDT)
