What makes the religious forums the most controversial, confrontational, contentious, fascinating, and highly dangerous forums around? One is apprehensive of entering and participating but is somehow drawn to this forum as if there is some perverse curiosity about it !
I'm drawn to it simply because I find the subject matter fascinating, yet I don't perceive opposing views as a real threat. Unlike politics, where different ideologies could seriously affect my life if they took hold and came into power. Discussion of religion gives us a window into the inner workings of the mind of other individuals. Religion shows our hopes and dreams, how we view our fellow man, how we view ourselves and how we view the universe.
That's true. You are repelled and entranced simultaneously by observing interactions in the Religion Forum. You simply cannot leave, you want to know WHAT ELSE is going to occur and WHERE the conversation and discussion are going and to what type of conclusion, if any. As I have said, the Religion Forums are like NO OTHER forum. It is UNIQUE beyond words.

In light of my latest hub I was wondering what other people believe the proper role of Imagination in faith is. So I figured this would be the best place to ask that question...So what do you think?

I have often heard it said that everyone deserves respect. I agree that everyone deserves a certain level of respect, unless they do something to "un-earn" it. In these forums, we only know what we...
