The BHT has a posted rule of pg-13 language. I have consistently edited according to that rule.
So put up or shut up. Where have we violated the posted rules on our blog regarding language?

I don’t know if the Tavernistas have violated Spencer’s PG-13 rule or not. I suppose that depends on how one defines PG-13 these days.
In any event, this was never part of my original charge. I never accused the Tavernistas of violating BHT protocol.
It does, however, say quite a bit about Spencer’s moral compass that he defends BHT usage by appealing to the rating system of the Hollywood movie industry.
If you cannot see fit to withdraw this baseless charge, or show me where I am wrong, I have to ask myself if this sort of un-Christian argumentation is an inevitable, slippery slope type of result of reformed thinking.

This is a lie, Mr.Hays. And you should retract it as a matter of honor.

I'm going to call you out as a liar... I'm just telling you straight. You are a liar and a hypocrite.

Come on, Michael, why don’t you tell me how you really feel?
You are completely aware that the language at the BHT is tame. None of the famous "7 words" or anything similar have ever been allowed.
If you Google the famous “7 words” (not something I ordinarily recommend) you’ll find the S-word and the P-word, as in the following BHT-approved examples:
And I'ma confirmed anti-antinomian... Also, that BS call for prayer really saddens me. There's no real evidence of compassion or empathy. ...

You are aware that the site search at the BHT reveals exactly what language has been used.
Thanks for pointing out that niffty search feature. Speaking of which:

You are aware that Doug Wilson uses a term I have never allowed on the BHT. (see the link in the previous post.) [http://www.dougwils.com/index.asp?Action=Anchor&CategoryID=1&BlogID=1617]
You are slandering me in a public forum, and you are refusing to either provide specifics or to provide the standard I have agree to that allows you to find the fault. I am repeatedly asking for evidence of your slanderous accusations, and none are forthcoming. Why not?

Be careful what you ask for.
Now let’s watch Spencer back-peddle and furiously redefine the terms of his original challenge.
