> 1. Why is the advice to simply ignore posts that you find offensive? I mean, don't you have to read them first, thereby paying attention to them, to know that you're offended?

The advice is to ignore someone's posts if you're not interested in what they have to say or you don't care for how they say it. If someone's using language that could offend others or posting something that's uncivil in some other way, that's different, and I'd like to know about it.

> 2. Why on a religious faith board are people not allowed to say what they actually believe. Wouldn't someone that shared the beleif find that supportive?

Maybe, but others might find it unsupportive.

> What exactly is the purpose of this board?

Support and education. With a focus on religious faith.

> 3. And does Please Be Civil also mean please don't make fun of someone in a subtle way? Or please don't point out the outrageous? Or, please don't EVER get frustrated and express it? Or please don't ask other posters a question more than once?

A lot of it is context. And subjective. Sorry not to be able to spell it out any better in advance...
