If you go to 'edweirdo's forum filter', you can eliminate the religious posts-or any topics you'd rather not see-completely. I don't look at the religious forum activity; it annoys me far to much. Well, maybe for a laugh or two-but I do so rarely.
Well done, EH! I don't know, on another browser I don't have the filter and saw the religious 'topics' and ran as fast as I could to get back to the other one with the filter!!! Other than that, I stay away from that sort of insanity!
Damn good idea I say Lorlie! I have been banned about 4 times now for expressing myself on the religious forums, and it is no joy to be mute on all forums for 4 months!
Still, I have seen two souls saved for my team since I got here, so I still try to make my case so to speak!
Mind you, I have some very nice religious friends here too such as our dear Habee, AEvans Habees good mate (but on my side of the fence) Randy the snake man likes to have a go too. We all get along fine because they are extremely tolerant of my foul attitude towards good religious peoples beliefs.
I think this is because it reflects society at large. Religion still matters to most people, with those who are prepared to die and to kill for their beliefs, and those who need to defend their right not to believe in a god. Looking at the news, so much of it is dominated by religion, so it is only natural that people should want to talk about it online.
I haven't watched the news in some time. In fact the last time I did, the headline concerned the fact that Henry VIII was considering moving away from the Church of Rome. I'm not sure if he has done that yet.
I generally stay away from both the religion forum and the politics one on the basis that some people become so intense. You can see the way the thread is unfolding that some are taking it far to seriously. I suppose with the religion forum that is how wars start. People can't agree on the differences between their views.
I agree. I used to wander into the religious threads, but finally had to just stay away from them--I don't like being made fun of and talked down to by folks that I ordinarily would've gotten along fine with, in other threads. I can't separate my feelings into compartments like some people do, and since I can't, I just have to stay away.
Politics, on the other hand, are just plain fun to get into sometimes...I don't take stands on either side--I'm more in the middle, so it's easier for me to understand both sides, I guess!
I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all...
I am reviled yet my forums create all kinds of participation. I like and I am not going anywhere!There are some who indicated a boycott to not speak ever on what I write. They are writers heretics. I bless them and...
Well I'm back in the forums and happy to be saying Hello to my fellow posters. I have missed being a part of the forums, where one can offer unsolicited advice on all subjects without consequences unless you insist on...
I am new here so it's possible this has been suggested before. How about a debate forum, separate from the other forums, where contentious topics can be debated? So, if people wanted to discuss, say, a...
