I understand that there are some people out there who want to sing and dance about God, preaching his word.
I also understand that there are people out there who are athiests and who want to disprove God on all accounts.
That's freedom of speech, no one can take that away from you and it is with in your right to post such ideas.
However, there are so many forum posts out there which are just posted in order to cause a riot.
People are entitled to their own beliefs; however, I ask that you write hubs on it, not millions of forum posts instead. In forums people often rush their explanations for things and others get the wrong idea from that. If you post it in a hub then you can explain yourselves fully.
Another reason is that the forums, back when I first joined, were a place of jokes and light conversation and pictures of funny things. Now it is just full of hardcore debates about religion. I can name several hubbers who have stopped using forums because of this (FieryCJ, Blondepoet etc) and several have said they are close to leaving because of it. Please can we redeem the forums to their former glory?
I understand that it's coming up for Christmas and all but please, this is my appeal to spread love in the forums. Not to argue and bicker in them.
I felt that way last night when 90% of the latest forum posts were from the religion forum.
I came on late last night and I wondered if it was because it was halloween. that poster was definitely writing to incite and attack. I stayed out of it.
Yeah, what is with the obessive religious arguements? I wonder if there is a concerted effort to sort of swarm hubpages as a sort of evangelical pulpit. It's getting old really fast. By the way, I love your stylish new avatar, Uninvited.
I agree with you Luke. Hopefully some people will take your words to heart. The threads that were started last night UW were just ridiculous and is the extreme of what has been happening in the forums. I hope that doesn't happen again.
I used to think that forums of this nature, where the topics are grouped into subjects (politics, religion, relationships etc.) were a bit restrictive. Now I can see their value. If I don't want to participate in a religious thread, I just ignore it.
I've already taken up the challenge. I spent the evening a few nights ago, posting comments on several forums and then deleting them before publishing - realized my retorts were not really appropriate. Finally decided to curb my frustration by writing a very simple hub. I'm fairly new here but it's too bad that the thoughful responses have given way to such. Interestingly enough, while the simple hub I wrote has received a lot of views, only one comment has come in. Where are all those forum responders?
Some people love to fight. Just give it to them. And most of us sometimes don't mind a good fight either.
Hello Misha how was Halloween? Are you feeling better?
Well I'm a lover not a fighter. Speaking of lover, the boy is on his way over. Everyone have a good night!
LOL Hi Scott, how are you?
Non-eventful, we even did not go to trick-o-treating cause kids wished to get there so hard they got exhausted long before it started.
And I am feeling better, thanks for asking.
I'm good but I'm getting off the computer for the rest of the night I've been at it all day in the forums now I have a headache.
My feeling is if you don't believe in religion why would you post on a question you felt was fantasy. If you choose to then post a reply then you're the one being the antagonist. If religion is not for you butt-out! By now you know how we feel and your challenges to our belief system falls on deaf ears and if you call us sheep, stupid or intollerant you're only asking for a fight. I, personally, am tired of athiests telling how a Christian should reply to an insult.
Now if you're going to acknowledge the holidays are relevant then opposing Christianity and it's tenants is just plain mean spirited hypocracy. Now a truce is fine but it's all in the court of liberals and atheists. Don't start a fight and there won't be a fight.
I didn't know you weren't well Misha. But I am glad you are feeling better. Have a good night. Make sure you keep quiet under my skirt now.
I don;t think I told anybody about it, so I have no idea how Scott learnt this. He probably has some military methods.
And I gonna be quiet as a mouse if you let me just sit there. I can move a bit though, hope you don;t mind some extra stimulation

Why are people so quick to attack others beliefs? This forum is a prime example! Whenever I click on any forum post, it is filled with condescending word wars! It seems like most of us have absolutely no respect for one another on here. I can't speak for everyone, but Christians, aren't we supposed...

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 for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...

This question is for the anti-gay folk who spend an enormous amount of energy in various gay groups and forums. Why?Is it because you want to make sure everyone knows you are not gay? What are you SO afraid of if you stop preaching your anti-gay beliefs?GLBT forums are supposed to be for GLBT...

Paid forum posting is a business that's growing rapidly because of the glut of money in politics and the desire of commercial interests to promote their products and to blunt criticism.Should paid forum posters be forced to acknowledge that they are being paid? Should they be banned from posting...

I don't mind folk debating Theology and the Meaning of Life but there are some people on Hubpages who keep banging on from their electronic pulpit about Jesus and the Bible. I think it's time that Hubpages considered whether this is appropriate content. I think it belongs on religious websites not...

The hypothetical part:Say HP were cheesed off enough to think 'The religion sub-forum takes up too much valuable staff time, it's got to go'The non-hypothetical part:You spend most if not all of your time in the above forum, warring with words etc etc. You may (or may not) have written a few hubs....
