I wrote a little hub about Ganymede, the seventh moon of Jupiter, just lately. I also included the Greek legend of Ganymede...there is more than a little hint of homosexuality in this legend.
I got quite a few emails from the Christian contingent, though no direct comments on the hub itself. They all said, among other things, that mention of homosexuality is banned on HubPages because HubPages is a Christian network. They were outraged.
Is this true? I really didn't mean to offend anyone. It's a myth, where the moon got its name, that's all, a very old Greek legend pre-dating the time of Christ.
Is this a Christian network? Are any mentions of homosexuality banned from the Hub content? The Hub Pages staff didn't censor my hub in any way.
Absolutely not. HubPages is open to everyone and is not affiliated with any relgious group or viewpoint.
Again, absolutely not.
I went through the log of emails sent to you through the HubPages contact form, and didn't see any message like that of which you speak. Please do forward these emails to me at team(at)hubpages(dot)com with "Attn: Maddie" in the subject line, and I will get to the bottom of this immediately.
i never thought it was a christian network, as most hubbers to me always seemed more like atheists if you ask me. because I've seen a lot of christians get ridiculed and made fun of a lot in forums, so I always assumed that the majority of hubbers here are atheists. however, that's just my opinion. if you ask me, i think you should ignore those e-mails as they're just idiots that have nothing better to do with their time.
This gave me a real laugh out loud moment. Apologies if it wasn't meant in fun. But still - I laughed.
And re the OP - good to know that we can be loud and proud *whatever* on HP. I'm loudly, proudly green. But only in color. I don't think I could claim to be eco friendly. I like driving too much for one thing
Thank you very much for the clarification, Maddie. That answwers the question completely. I was afraid I did something wrong and offended the sensibilities of the traffic here. I do see other content that isn't particularly a Christian viewpoint, and sometimes the heated conversations between Christians and atheists on the forums get a little out of hand...
I'm glad mentions of homosexuality aren't banned on HubPages. That's good news to keep an open mind, always.
I wonder how these emails got to me if not through HubPages? There were seven of them, altogether, with mostly the same message. I've deleted them; otherwise I'd forward them to you, Maddie.
Unfortunately I went off the net, logged off my computer while the HubPages was down for maintenance, right after I posted this forum. My computer empties my DELETED email folder immediately upon logging off my computer; they are gone, they don't even make a stop in the recycle bin; I checked.

I'm very timid when it comes to change if the change is not one of my own choosing, even if it is good change. Moving to HubPages was an upsetting experience for me, mainly because I felt the place we moved from...
I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...
When the new rules were brought in, we were told we'd receive a warning email if a Hub was non-compliant.And so we did. But I've just had a Hub unpublished which was not on the list. It was for a link to a...
