I think the subject of religion will come up whether there is a section for it or not, but at least with the section, it can be contained so that those who don't want to be involved do have to be.

Though I might suggest setting it up like the Dark Side so that you have to go looking for it if you want it.

I avoid Religion and Politics on the internet, so I don't care one way or the other as long as they have a place and keep it there.

I don't like the abuse that the Religon pages get. If it's VIP then only members would see it. That's not what the Lord teaches us. What if a post gets someone to thinking? On the other hand it sure would be nice to not have the abuse. I guess I am on the fence.

In a way I agree with the Horned One.

I hope it doesn't go VIP only. I'm sure many can't afford to pay for it and would stop posting.

I think things have cooled off around here in the past couple of weeks...so why mess with a good thing?

To expand a little on what Fire65 said....it's a distraction, sure the argument can be made that to some there are some Religious motivators to prepping.....but that can be said about anything.....just as politics......take them out of the equation IMHO.

In regards to moving it to the Darkside.......another place that is the back of the bus where folks can cut up and pretend their back in Jr. High. Let the trolls go there and BS threads go to die. I personally don't care too much for the DS, but it's a necessary evil I suppose.

We have plenty of people that do nothing more than troll the Religious section....in all honesty.....make 'em pay to use the bandwidth.

Just my 2 cents.

It would seem to me Paying trolls would be even more empowered.

Funny questions though, but it would seem to me He who pays the Most trolls the most?

I dont see how trolls as you put it would vanish in da Paying mugs section?

I might drop a grand just to Buy someones Job...maybe 5? JK but i hope my point is taken
He who pays the Most says the Most, Ya i know ...but i dont buy it.

What gives you that idea?

Its fine...lets not put a money value on what can and cant be said as long as it conforms

Maybe a little troll patrol by mods would be nice. There is nothing nice about trolling...

We have done that....and yet it continues.

There are just some people that are rigid in their beliefs, and thats fine IMHO, but it takes away from our primary focus.......prepping.

If folks want to have a 'Free' area where they can discuss religious topics....lots of room in the Social Group section and you can control who comes in as well if you wish to make it private.

True.....then there is the option to delete the Religious section entirely.

I'm just tossing out some ideas is all.

We just have to understand and more importantly respect the fact that not everyone has the same beliefs as us and many cannot do that. They purposely derail, troll or even use the forum as a pulpit or soapbox belittling others beliefs.
