The more rides an amusement park has, the more chance that more people will visit and all have a good time.

Should Six Flags drop the superman ride because it makes some people sick?

If AJ is tired of dealing with the non-Christians, there's a very simple way to deal with it - stop posting to threads you don't want to participate in. Simple as that.
I for one enjoy the religion and politics areas. For example, I get to research my material for presentation to the Christians who claim there's no evidence for evolution. I've had to brush up on biology, geology, genetics, and organic chemistry in order to discuss the issues over there. It's been a motivator to keep my mind sharp.
But as I said, if one doesn't like the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
I didn't mention anyone's name in particular. Some of the posts are "rantings" while some reflect a level of intelligence (sometimes). Sorry you personalized my post. Also, if you had read my entire post, you would have noticed that I mentioned that I find it a blessing to me personally to have anti-Christians posting as it forces me to search the Scriptures. Calm down, take a deep breath, hold it for a second, now slowly let it out. Feel better?

EXACTLY! If you're easily offended, don't go in there. No one is FORCING you to read what's being posted in those sections, and there is absolutely no need to go in there if you don't like those sorts of subjects.

Now if you want to have your say, you're more then welcome too. However, try to post with some decorum. There's no need to be offended, people post what they do to bring attention to a subject, or to garner some opinions/thoughts about a certain subject.

Hopefully, both parties involved in these two sections will treat each other with respect. But if that fails, that's why we have the grievance section.

Why, because both are the main causes of wars. Both oppress the freedoms of man and this is a survival site, no?

YOu have to have sections for these views because you need a place for folks like Fxjohn to rant. Otherwise the real meat of the forum would be so full of you know what nobody would stick around. Or at least no one trying to get ready for whatmay and most likely will be coming.

For one I am glad you put them in place. Let the folks who want to go off and rant some have a place to get mad at each other. Just keep the tin hats, Jesus is coming to get me and the I hate this politician stay off the other posts. Thanks

Religion... politics.... two ways of spelling the same thing, isn't it? Without exaggeration there are well-intended folks who speak of Obama in Messanic terms... Let me be candid:

I have never bought into the end of the world stuff, 2012, or the anti-Christ, or New World Order which is somehow in cahoots with the anti-Christ et cetera... AND I still don't believe in that specific stuff... but... I will admit Obama's run and possible election is the closest thing I have seen in my lifetime to bringing about the end of America as we know it. Now whether he screws up the world as a weak, incompetent socialist, or as the anti-Christ, is rather moot. Failure is failure. I have never thought we are closer to falling apart as a humanity than we are now. I think those who think Bush is bad haven't a clue as to how bad it can get. And in my mind an Obama election is just one step closer to the cliff. Heck, his election might even get me praying... who said politics and religion were unrelated?

I think that having a separate place to discuss religion or politics is great. Since I am neither! LOL! I am American so you could say I am both.

An aside for clarification. There are over 500 different "Native American Religions" so it is hard to speak about Native American Religion as a whole accurately but as a whole "most" Native American Religions believe in one God, and many spirits closely akin to what Christians refer to as angels. Regarding being one with nature, that is a more of a practical way of living for a natural human being than a religious belief beyond awareness that natural forces are in fact part of the world as the Creator made it

I would like to thank the owner/operator of this site for allowing us the freedom to discuss these issues.

Another board I frequent is dead set against allowing it, and its bummer.

Thanks again.

I respect your rules but politically incorrect is hilarious to me. That's just me.
Especially when it gets obsene.

I would add that person to the atheist group and deny that group access to the religion section.
Or your moderaters would just ban them.

Is there a way to EXCLUDE at least the religious forum from the "New Posts" button?

NO.


Somewhere in this section theres a post about how to set up a google search of the forum that excludes whatever you want to exclude. Look around this area, maybe you'll find it.

I've been a member for a few years now and I still wonder why is there a religious section on a survivalist site in the first place? I understand that most survivalists and preppers have a tendency to be Christians or otherwise believers, but the religious section strikes me as completely irrelevant to a survivalist site. And, yes, I stay off the religious section as it has nothing to offer this prepper.

A few years? The year on your account says 2017.

It exists to give threads with such topics a place to go.

I have no problem with either, if I don't want to participate in a discussion, I don't.
