These 3 subjects seem to dominate forum participant interests.
Why is that?
Do you disagree? Why?
Which of the 3 is your favorite to respond to?...or not?...and why?
I like sex, but who doesn't so I respond to those. Politics, well, that always makes for a good discussion, so I like those posts too. Religion, well, for me that's personal and as unique as every individual, it's based on belief, on faith, concepts that logic may or may not play a part in. I usually don't partake in those discussions. You either do or don't believe so what's to discuss?

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

People will talk publicly about sex, or politics, but avoid speaking about God. Why?
