You cited the PBF page. On that page it says that "It is OK to share what has worked for you". Are you saying that (now) if someone shares "what worked for them" that they will be deemed disrespectfull to others? I am only telling of my experiance here, as you have stated that one can do. I am not saying that anyone (must) be jewish, just as the other posters have not said that others (must) be Zen people, or Catholic people, or people of other faiths that have been mentioned here. The fact that I am jewish and the jewish faith requieres that jews worship only one God does not mean that you or anybody else can not worship many Gods, or no God at all. There is a poster here that says that he/she believes in Greek Mythology. I have never said that he/she can not beleive in many Gods. And you have not restrained that poster's post. Are you saying that you are using some type of descriminatory rational that gives preference to those that believe in Greek Mythology and that they will not be restrained and that I will be restrained if I mention that I beleive in only one God? If you are, then could you tell me what that rational is so that I can post to be in compliance with that rational? There is no statement on the PBF page , as you have stated, that states that one cannot post their experiance with their faith. On the contrary, it says that "It is OK to share what has worked for you."
