... Can we rename it the CHRISTIAN forum already?


... If you have a Christian-dissenting voice there at all, your post will get modified, deleted or locked. If you post anything Buddhist, Hindu or agnostic related your post gets locked. And although I believe in God, atheists cannot post regardless of how genuine and non-inflammatory their question or view-point

... I have nothing against Christianity (born & raised Catholic) but I'm no longer convinced Jesus is the savior of man

... A moderator in the RELIGION forum even recently admitted, "As long as I run this forum, I get to decide what is OK in here"

... I agree it's not right to go there to taunt the believers or violate the CoC but one should be able to freely post opposing viewpoint without getting their opinion quashed

i believe you are wrong.
Christianity is not the only thing discussed in there.

have you looked in the religion forum , or did you just get in trouble for stomping on someones thread ?

Let me be a mod in there.....

You are spot on, WW.


I think garandman should moderate it... it'd be much more *interesting* that way. It'd be more like "the Gladiator" forum, though.



As it is, I couldn't find one thread that wasn't about/for Christians.

I have stated several times there that I am an atheist and although it is clear I am the minority, I have yet to be locked or banned.

It is important to remember that this is a predominantly Christian right-wing progun site. Membership is a priveledge not a right. If you are disruptive, the mods will do what they are supposed to do - moderate the discussion.

Post in GD that you're a gun hating liberal nazi and see where it gets you.

It took me all of about ten seconds to find an example of what you are talking about, such as Steyr's locked thread....

Disappointing.

Yep that is a typical point of view of a moral belief system. He did not attack nayone just stated his beliefs and his reasoning. Got squashed.


I have only posted twice in the Christian forum so I don't really care.

I just don't go to that forum AT ALL.

I didn't have to go there to know that is what it would be like, as until this Religion forum came up - that's what GD was starting to look like.

Let them have that forum to be the masters of, it makes 'em feel powerful and omnipotent and is a emergency venting system for those whom plague the General Discussion with zealotry.

Wah.
Link Posted: 9/3/2005 9:01:12 AM EDT
Hah!

Come on, take your medicine like a man! Just because the Mod keeps things on a short leash to maintain order is no reason to make unsubstantiated accusations!!!

The Jewish guys post lots of stuff critical of Christianity. Others, like TNFrank get their say.

I'm dissapointed in the way Pastafarians are not taken seriously and discriminated against.

FSM only wants to touch you with his noodly appendage. He was cooked for your sins.

Ramen.

An opposing view to religion is no religion right? It's a forum about religion go their to discuss religion or simply stay out. Simple.
