    They are banned at times depending on moderator's decisions. It depends what angle you are taking. If you ask enough questions you will find out.

    Part of American culture is "freedom of religion". This makes American somewhat open about religious topics. Some countries have laws requiring people to be part of only one religion, and they cannot move from it. This makes the people of those nations much more reserved about religious issues.

    Other countries require people to choose from a pre-selected list. Russia officially recognizes only the Orthodox church, Islam, and buddhism.

    Why should we not discuss things??? As long as we are respectful of each others, this shouldn't be an issue and if something offends or irritates, just ignore it.
    This is how obscurantism happened to so many countries: religion was forbidden or controlled, which is the most intimate relationship we can have within and out...that shape our being and lives. We should be free when it comes to that.
    My faith has only grown thanks to discussion.

    You would ban questions about a subject some find interesting? You are then considered foolish for not wanting to know what is out there. You are cutting yourself out of information, knowledge, something to make you think, etc.
    A better question would be "why WOULD you band questions about someones religious beliefs?".

    They do not get banned because it's about freedom of speech. We, then, also have the freedom of choice to participate or ignore those very same questions. Besides, if  religious questions get banned, then should political and sports questions also get banned since they, too, can be inflammatory? Where does one draw the line? Once you start banning things, it becomes a slippery slope. We can rather just respectfully agree to disagree and freely choose to not participate in those discussions if that is our choice.
