* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Put the items between the brackets [ ] before and after each section - copy and paste

So the beginning would have [ QUOTE=RedHawk;102515 ] (without the spaces) and the ending would have [ /QUOTE ] (again without the spaces



And there you go

 
Thanks, I'm not a big savvy when it comes to things like this. Also I pulled the upper part of my back so I'm not on my game today.

Who's Catherine?

 
That would be the TC member whose post you'd been responding to.  You said "nothing that your going through" to her.  While you may have meant that as a generic "you", it's not the usual construction of a generic-you sentence, so people took it as a reference to what Catherine might be going through.

i don't understand how you can think that if you watch/read even a small amount of news per day. A gay man walking his poodle was recently beaten less than half an hour from where i live; if bystanders hadn't been able to intervene, he probably would have been killed. Innocent people of color are shot by cops who think they pose some kind of imaginary danger on a regular basis. That you can blithely ignore it says that you have enough privilege that you don't think it will happen to you; that doesn't mean you can speak for all minorities.

This.

Did he call the cops because I didn't hear about this in the news.
 

 

I am a Black man and if I call the police I would expect to be shot or wind up in jail.

Give me a penny (not a dollar but a penny) for what does not make the news, and I will never have to work again.

He did. Luckily he survived to file charges.

True, and I don't know what lesbians and others go through. But what I do know is that minorities in other countries that are Muslim go through heck by those that think their better than everyone else.


Minorities in most parts of the world "go through heck," though which minorities face what dangers varies depending on the culture. My point wasn't that what happened to her wasn't terrible; obviously it was. What people are reacting to is your blanket statement that nobody else is in danger of being killed for who they are in any other part of the world, and we should all just "stop complaining".

Quote
Also, and I bet you didn't know this, but this discrimination is happening to recons. In Greece they are arrested and jailed because their not Christian. So it's happening weather we like to admit it or not.

 
So... that just proves my point, doesn't it? Or do you think recons being jailed in Greece need to shut up and stop complaining because at least they're not in Syria?

I agree, it was, and that's what made me so mad. Nothing changes with people, they just like to brainwash others to make themselves feel like their oh so powerful.

Glad he survived, murder is murder.

Oh they complain alright and when their jailed they end up suing big time. Of course the Christians over there get jailed as well, which means another fine that they have to pay. Thanks, Jake, for clearing up where I had gone wrong and lets not forget this poor girl so easily.

Actually, in Syria many Christians are killed and others are tortured for refusing to convert to Islam. In February twenty churches were destroyed there. http://m.christianpost.com/news/20-churches-destroyed-100s-of-sons-killed-in-syria-christian-leader-reveals-dire-reality--89768/

Edited to add: sorry - in Feb it was reported that 20 churches *have* been destroyed. Didn't all happen at once.

Now I don't know if this is the right spot for it, I'm sort of confused about where to put this. But apparently this girl who lived in Syria was pagan. Her brother outed her after he had become radicalized. The whole article is in the link below but this is also happening in Egypt, where Kemetics have to pretend to be good Muslims out in the open while they worship the Kemetic gods in private.

http://wildhunt.org/2013/03/the-fall-of-a-syrian-pagan.html

This really puts things in perspective. If you think, and this is for minorities all across the board, that you have it bad at least your not over there and at least your not dead. Be glad and stop complaining, it's not like your over there. Below is the Egyptian one, though it does mention Syria.

That poor, poor girl!   Wow.   That's just... :(

As a minority living in the Bible Belt I haven't yet to experience any form of discrimination or fear.

 
Um...I also live in the "Bible Belt" and I see discrimination and fear on a daily basis here. Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, people that identify as anything other than "good ol' Christian folk", etc. are subject, at best, to being looked at with suspicion. Pick up a newspaper or watch even 1 hour of news on your TV or laptop and it's abudantly clear that prejudice, discrimination, and fear are as alive and well here as they are everywhere else in the world. Sad but very, very true.

Yup, same here. Virginia has some pretty nasty parts to it and I happen to live in one.

I heard about that as well as other places. My mother has been telling me things that have been going on in Egypt. I've been reading about people trying to settle in areas that have important archeology importance. I hope that made some sense.

You must live in the hard core parts of the bible belt. I spent one to three hours reading news here in Louisville and it's all about basketball and other things. I have to do the across the country to get other news.
