Greetings White_StoneI did not mean to give anyone the impression that I was upset or angry about the title of the thread. I simply asked that perhaps their might be another one chosen for the sake of younger children who come here and read. For my son I know the term(choking newborns) would cause him to be upset. For him it would make him think of a baby being choked. In all honestly I thought that too. When I first read the title of the thread, I thought that someone had posted another news story about some parent killing their child and I was apprehensive about even viewing the thread. In the end it does not make a difference if the author of the thread chooses to keep the title or not. Sadly my husband feels that perhaps this is no longer the best place for my son to visit because of some of the way things have been written in the forum of late. So he will no longer be coming here. There is much I am praying about as well. My desire above all else is to live daily unto the Lord and to walk in such a way that is pleasing to Him. If anyone was offended by my post asking for the sake of my son that the title be changed then please accept my apologies, it was not my heart or intention to cause any strife. Thanks for your time and God bless youMJEdit-I wanted to make clear that my husbands decision to no longer allow my son to come to the site was not only because of the title of this thread. There were many factors involved and much prayer. For me my heart filled desire is to post in such a way that others might be encouraged and edified. I don't want my time here on sermon index to be about me but rather to further His kingdom. I need to be sure that is the motivation of my own heart. thank you all
Perhaps it would be better for your son to go where there is real substance on this site-the audio sermons, the video sermons...and avoid the discussion forum altogether. Instead of worrying about being upset or offended by the title, perhaps this would be a time to teach him how dangerous religion can be. There is a real enemy out there and shielding him from the truth is just as dangerous. However, I agree, a debate forum full of conflicting opinions is not a good place for an impressionable young one.

You have a perfect opportunity to teach you children what the term means and why it was used. It is a very sad thing to appear more upset about the title of this thread than what happened on the other. As I type this I see there are 42 guests online, how do we appear to those guests?
personally,the title drew me to read the first post. I was moved by it,and immediately thought,good idea.

I am saddened and grieved that the title of this thread seems of more concern than people's souls. God help us, people, it's not about US or what we like it is about HIM and the souls HE DIED FOR!!! The title is graphic because the damage to babes in Christ is graphic!!
