having sat on the sidelines, mostly, on this issue, I have to say that kgilbert78 does have a bit of a legitimate beef (though it doesn't rest entirely w/ you). For example, I, too, take issue with the way hardhead made his statement ["But this is not the place to discuss theology or spread hate."] For one, the statement seems to equate theology = hate, which comes across as an attack, in itself, on anyone from a theistic point of view. For another, as I said in the other thread, it (and several other statements) more or less convey the sentiment that those of certain "belief systems" are welcome to post, and those of other belief systems are not... And I'd agree w/ kgilbert78 that the general "tone" of the threads has been to welcome areligious/non-religious points of view, even ones that many in our society might consider "controversial," but to be all too ready to edit out those that even suggest a theistic point of view -- while at the same time letting slide at least two separate comments, in the same thread, that were very broadly slanderous of followers of one particular religion. Just my opinion. But one I thought I'd throw out there in hopes of promoting truly "open" discussions in the future.
