James R. White and “stalking”…


In the past, James has leveled the charge (insult?) of “stalking” in my direction, as well as at other individuals (Paul Owen and Dave Armstrong immediately come to mind without a “Google” search); and yet, I seriously doubt that any of us who have been accused of “stalking” by James, have come close to the level, and volume of derogatory posts, that he has piled on certain individuals. For instance, perform a search on AOMIN using these keywords: “Armstrong”, “Beckwith”, “Peterson”, “Steve Ray”—the results speak for themselves…

But, it is James’ most recent BLOG POST, aimed at the fellow Baptist professor, Ergun Caner, which provides a truly ‘classic’ example of “stalking” (once again, search on the AOMIN site, this time using the keyword, “Caner”, for more examples).

Is it just I, or do others sense yet another “double standard” from the ever busy pen of James?

Grace and peace,

David

This is a double standard at its finest. James White does seem to enjoy going after those he debates in exreme ways, and it always ends up being a "look at how I am superior to him" kind of thing. If this is the kind of thing he wants to do, then so be it, but don't pretend to not be doing what you are in fact doing. Own up to it. It is especially silly that James acts in such a way, but then doesn't allow any avenue of response to appear beside his own comments.

I have documented White's obsession with Steve Ray, who had to be punished because he befriended White's sister:

Hello Erwin,

I don’t remember you posting here at AF in the past—welcome!

Not much to add to your comments, for we are in agreement; but I would like to reiterate the fact that James does not allow ANY comments on his AOMIN blog other than his own, and those of his “team Apologia”. I don’t mind criticisms leveled my way, but I strongly maintain that if/when one does so the venue employed should allow response(s).

Grace and peace,

David

ROFL…I am sure in the minds of some that it does…
