Does announcing your religious affiliation affect your Hub traffic?


Does airing our religious beliefs turn people away if it is different from their own? I am afraid to get into any religious conversations because I don't want to be excluded from any side. I want to hear and participate in discussions from every angle.

    It’s not that I’m trying to announce my religious affiliation, but I don’t know how to get into a hub conversation that does, without implicating myself, because assumptions will be made. I just want to be involved in what I believe to be a good hub.

    I usually try to avoid religion conversations in general because I know it’s such a touchy topic. Yet there are several hubs that I’ve found to reference religion though it's not the main theme. I don't want to agree or disagree and then be "marked"

    chef-de-jour,

    I really appreciate your attitude on the subject. I'm kind of one of those "everybody's buddy" kind of people and I don't want to feel like I have to be placed on a "side".

    jlpark,

    Awesome, that's the kind of attitude I wish everyone had. I don't want to exclude people that I find interesting because they have a particular belief nor do I want to be excluded. Birds of a feather flock together. :-)

    Thanks. I don't hide anything when asked, but I have been involved in heated conversations where people get extremely offended with other's and their beliefs, I'm almost afraid to disscuss it because I don't want to be offensive to anyone or any view

    Fastian,

    I give everyone respect, despite their views and opinions. I'm not so worried about traffic as much as I just don't want to be categorized in any particular kind of group. I enjoy all views and different kinds of people. I want the same.

    wqaindia,

    You bring up a good point. I don't care what peoples' beliefs are as long as they aren't criticizing mine. Some people like it their way or no way. I don't know why we have to fit in any group. I want to communicate with people of all kinds

    Thanks. If I agree with a "believer" on one issue, some "non-believers" cast me aside. If I agree with a "non-believer" on another issue, some "believers" cast me aside. I mean in life, not HP, but that is why I ask because I don't want that here.

    JThomp42,

    Thanks. I believe what I believe but I don't want it to mark me as any kind of a certain person. Just because I do believe or don't believe in what other's do, shouldn't mean I'm not worthy of participating in any/all conversations.

    Larry,

    That might be true about the gun related issues, which I have found myself in quite the few heated debates over. Quite frankly, I'd be just as interested to hear your points of views as the, let's say, Atheists, to better understand thoughts
