Why do you feel the need to be different, if you love God?

Are you trying to make some kind of statement?

God wrote in a simple font, in American, that anyone can understand. God's text is not good enough for you?

In Christ
Dear Br. Harold Porter:

I must respectfully disagree, sir, with your erroneous observations and your wrongheaded rebuke.

How, pray tell, can a font, which is a printing type set & something inanimate, be gay? I thought only human beings, and perhaps some furry animals, are gay.

Do you mean the printing typeface, that is, font, that I use, italicized Courier New, is ostentatious, that is, too elaborate &/or too ornamental?

Does God specify which printing typeface a True Christian™ ought to use in his posts? If so, where is it in Holy Scripture? What and where is the justification for preferring one font over another in Holy Scripture?

If you think italicized Courier New is too flowery & ostentatious, look below at the title of page of a copy of the first edition of the King James Bible published in 1611. Would you call gay the printer (i.e.: Robert Barker, printer to H.M. the King, which you can clearly read on the title page) of King James I of England/King James VI of Scotland, who ordered and authorized the translation and printing of this Bible which bears his name in common usage throughout the English-speaking world? I think not.

If using an alternative font to the default font on this forum, i.e.: Verdana, is good enough for the printer to H.M. King James I of England/King James VI of Scotland, and the King James Version of the Holy Bible, it's good enough for me!


Yours in the Fellowship of Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, & member of the forums (Is Black-letter typeface, shown above in the title of the Landover Baptist Church, gay, too?):

Below is another example of Black-letter typeface used in these forums and on this website. Is this, too, "gay"? You decide, dear reader!

You're pretty good with apostrophes and commas. Are you sure you're really Australian?


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.

I am most certainly an Australian, a fifth-generation Caucasian Anglo-Saxon Australian.


I am good at spelling, grammar, usage, and punctuation because I was educated at a time in Australia when one was caned if one made an error in basic written English.


The standards of education in Australia, naturally including written English, were much, much higher then than they are now or have been for the last 40 odd years. When one got a public education in the 1950s & '60s in New South Wales, one left school actually educated.
