Thanks, JediJones. Well said.
I had to check back to see my original post which started this whole thing, and all I said was:
“I dont celebrate this ZOT at all.
Cant win em all.”
Next time I’ll just stay quiet and out of it. I was just taken aback, given the repeated rancid posts by others, and the one poster you named, that sail by ignored.
I was aware that a mob was after Apollo5600 but like Mariner pointed out, some of the Santorum peeps are truly running wild.
The thing I pray for most, is that this election comes to a sane end, very soon, which includes our original champion, Newt Gingrich, being the winner. GO NEWT!

I'm glad that you spoke out. I think it was very brave of you.
I’ve been in hibernation. Going back there too! :-)
I mistook you for another poster and falsely (and erroneously) accused you of name calling.
This did not occur.
Have reviewed the history and restored Apollo5600 on probation. Warned him to back way off on the insults, attacks and flamewars if he wants to keep his posting privilege.
Some of the posts that influenced the moderator’s decision to ban the account had already been deleted so you’re not seeing the complete picture. Nonetheless, I’ve restored his account and he can continue posting as long as he avoids the behavior that got him banned.
Now you know my reasons for staying off ZOT ping lists! I would not have known but for a ping from Old Sarge. No ZOT on thread from Admin. Moderator or Jim.
All right, and thanks very much Jim.
Even though I was right in predicting Apollo would be unzotted; I hope my prediction that he will later be rezotted will be proven incorrect.
Thank you, Sir.
Justice has been delivered. Thanks for the wisdom as well as the reminder of what standard the rest of us need to hold ourselves to!
Thank you, Jim.
I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m surprised that I am.
I appreciate you guys who stuck up for me in this thread. I am actually on a probationary period, so the Santorum guys are going to have their bubbles burst by me in a kinder, gentler, more sensitive way.
But to answer the question about where I stand, (since apparently one cannot be taken at what one clearly writes around here) I did not attack faith. I attacked Santorum. I have been saying for quite awhile around here that Santorum uses the religion and social issues to cover up his record and platform. I’ve seen this opinion by others as well, totally independent of my own. It is not an attack on faith. It is purely an attack on a candidate.
And as for who I support, it is Newt Gingrich totally. I was Pro-Cain initially, but after going through a depression when Cain dropped (probably similar to the depression people went through when Palin decided not to run) I switched over to Perry, since I had originally supported him before Cain, and then after a second depression, I switched over to Newt when I took a serious look at his history and realized I had been quite wrong to condemn him and that the world wasn’t ending. If this happens a third time, I’m becoming a sequestered monk and will never deal with politics again.
Newt Gingrich has his flaws, but he definitely has always been one of us. I wrote an article on American Thinker defending Newt’s moon colony idea back when he was getting bashed for it, which should establish my non-troll Bona fides. (My name is Ricardo Galvan Estrada, and it is listed as such on American Thinker.) I don’t think a regular troll would go to the point of defending Newt with a researched article.
As regards to Christianity, I lean Pentecostal. Which means I am on again off again on spiritual gifts. On various forums, though using different names, I have been debating folks on creation vs evolition (I am a creationist) for a number of years, as well as religious debates with Catholics, Mormons, atheists, Muslims (a muslim once told me that in the end days, he would cut off my head) and many others on many other issues. That doesn’t make me a “good” or “holy” or “super religious” person, but it does make me the farthest thing from an atheist or a heathen. If I condemn Santorum, it has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with the actual candidate.
And FYI, this whole thread is an exercise in overreaction and outright silliness. So much ado over a minor post! Even “hellspawn” and declarations of glee. You would have to spin very hard to translate my comment into an attack on “faith.” And if the mods investigate some of the other posters around here, they would realize that that kind of an attack happens often.
Anyway, alls well that ends well. Thanks again to the folks who backed me up! I suppose my background check came out okay, so you can take your gloved hand out of my butt looking for weapons or hidden drug stashes please!
And as for my history on Free Republic, I saw a post mentioning a second account? I have read Free Republic for years, but I shy away from large forums since it means getting attacked twenty times in a single minute, which I had found to be overwhelming in the past. I joined FR as a member since I was excited over Cain.
Mind your good manners your Mama taught ya.
Newt is on fire! I didn't remove you from Newt's Ping List.
I know your history and remember when you supported Cain and referred disgracefully to Newt as a sociopath! You've always been rough around the edges but I liked you regardless and you always knew it.
Now, get back into action. We have work to do. God bless you, Newt and all of his steadfast supporters and patriots everywhere! GO FREE REPUBLIC!
Well said! :)
I’m glad you’re back.
It was all my doing that lead to your de-zotment (see post 105).
Yessss, others were gloating over your carcass, but I pleaded on your behalf to restore your account, and Jim relented.
(Yes I am LMAO as I type this. You DO recognize sarcasm, yes?)
And per an earlier post by Onyx... I AM having a wonderful day.
