How come there isn't a Religion tag?

    Or am I just missing it? o.o

    There are lots of hubs tagged with "religion."

    I think Bartholomew is asking why it is not in the major drop-down list.  Of course you can always create and add whatever tag you want...

    I add a religion tag all the time.  About half of my hubs are tagged religion.  You just add it to the list of tags when you are first creating your hub.

    I think he means in the forum topics.

    I would be ecstatic if there were a religion section on the forums.  I think healthy discussion about something so profound a topic as religion would be a welcome addition.

      I guess we are discussing religions under the politics now smile

        They really go hand in hand, so I guess that is appropriate. :-)

    Sorry for the confusion.  I meant on both the forums, and on the tags that the main page allows you to "subscribe" to. :-)

    I am aware of the moderation efforts this would require, especially on the forum, but I think it would be well worth it to all the religious hubbers here.

    You can subscribe to the religion (or any other tag) on the religion tag page in the upper right corner:

    http://hubpages.com/tag/religion/hot

    We choose the default list of tags and the forum topics based on popularity, but of course excluding near duplicates (such as art and arts).   If you'd like to see religion added to the list you just need to help us build out the religion community here (and build a lot of religion hubs).

      Awesome! That's a really good idea.  The tech here is really cool.  I can't get over it.

      Thanks for the help. :-)

      same here.  up and around way early for me because I keep odd hours, so I'll probably catch a cat-nap somewhere in there, then the long evening.

      hope to see ya in the forumz then too. smile

    I'm just curious, after having done a search on the keywords 'religion', 'christianity' and 'wicca' just off the top of my head I found dozens of pages of hubs which are centered on the topics above.  How much more content needs to be written on these topics before we get a section for religion on the forum?

    Religion is currently the 43rd most popular tag (about 700 hubs short of the top 20).   But, I'm willing to add a religion forum if 10 people express interest here and promise to actually use it to discuss religion.

      I'd contribute.

    Paul,

    I would definitely love a Religion forum.  Even though I don't write hubs about it (or haven't, yet), it's one of my major focuses in my academic life (read: "my major, for now" wink).  Would love to talk about it with other Hubbers!

  14. LisaG profile image64

    I'm interested in a religion forum since most of my hubs are bible based.  That would be great! And I just got internet at home so I can participate in the forums fully now.

    Yes I do agree, there should be one RELIGION forum.

    Religion covers an entire world.  Could there be a Religion Forum, or whatever name it is given, and people behave nicely?

    On another site, even the Religion thread was pulled because of apparently misunderstandings.  I missed this, by not reading for about twenty-four hours, so I don't know the details.

    Some people think Religion, as with Bible in Hand (including me, having been raised this way),
    Others, as Gamergirl mentioned, think Wicca and others.  (Forgive me Gamergirl, I just used your word). 

    There are many people in this world with many beliefs.  Question is:  Can this be used in a meek environment.?  Hopefully Religious Tolerance, or some such words....

    Back to You,  Paul.

    That's my opinion.  I'm Betty Jo

    Having studied world religion for a very long time, I can honestly say I would welcome a religion forum section.  Though I think my previous response to the thread showed my interest. ^.^

    I would welcome a religions forum, too. smile

    Ok, here you go -- the religion forum is open for business.

    Thank you so much, Paul!

    Thanks to everyone else who spoke up about this also. Hubpages grows and becomes a more diverse place for all of us with each day with effort from each and every one of us.
