Default Discussion defined

If we are to be successful at this discussion forum everyone must be free to state their personal beliefs without ridicule or censure. So baiting and personal attacks are not allowed. But free discussion is. About any topic of interest that concerns religion.

If you have unanswered questions about anything concerning religion, yours or another faith feel free to ask. But don't get mad about the answer.

So to steal Pacco Kelly's line, this is a high class joint, so act like it.

Being respectful & in good taste is always appreciated........

Wondering if we should pin this one to to the top of the page for a few weeks.

There is nothing in the world so damaged that it cannot be repaired by the hand of almighty God.

I encourage you to know this because without this certainty we should all of us be mad.

So what about locking threads on religious Sharia Law without warning? Or are only some threads on Sharia allowed? What's the clear policy....??

TM, it almost appears the "Conspiracy Theory" forum was made just for you, why not stay there, keep your tin foil hat on and give the rest of the world a break.

Byron, that makes a lot of sense. Very much appreciated. That leaves the forum open to those of different beliefs. There are some odd notions out there, and your stance allows folks who don't believe as the majority to speak up and ask questions without being blasted.

Tm7, I told you why in my post before it was locked. The only reason I left it was so everyone could see what a political or news post looked like. I believe you knew that before you posted it. It's locked but after a few days, if you want I'll move it to your choice of political or news it fits in either one better than here.

You asked for clarification on religious posts. Just because the post deals with Muslims or Jews or Israel does not make it religious. It it deals with the religious aspects if their faith then it's religious. If it deals with their politics it's political. If it's just a news item then that's what it is even though it happens in the Arab or Israel's world.

IMO your post it is over the line by a nose regarding the OP . I detect snarkiness, ridicule and insult in it. As in all forums' Conspiracy Theory" is an option, you don't have to go there.

Thanks for this post. It clarifies the notion of religion for purposes of discussion.

What part of my PM to you regarding posts such as I just deleted did you fail to understand? Graybeard.[/color]

One who fails to answer as to what he believes, is a coward.
And the one who fails to back his own statements,,, exposes himself as a liar.
