Dr. Hsiung,
You wrote,[...one of the approved ways of expressing religious belief here...(is to preface it with {I believe}...]
That is one of the approved ways as long as the statement in question follows your other statement in the same post:
[...if the foundation of a faith {puts down} those of other faiths, its not in my view supportive...discussed elsewhere...].
Then in your other post titled [Re: guidlines and exceptions] for the faith board, you wrote on October 25, 2002 the following and I have not seen a change in your policy since then:
[...Yes. And it is fine to talk about {what you believe}-->as long as you don't |put down| other beliefs<...].
Your post and that statement by you is the second to the last paragraph in that post.
Then your last paragraph in that post is that [...open to feedback..do what I think will be good for the community as a whole...].
I feel put down when I read the statement in question because of the grammatical structure of the statement in question and the guideline here is that it is fine to post what you believe {as long as you don't >put down< those of other beliefs}. If I feel put down when I read the statement in question, because it could be IMO be interpreted to contrast a foundation of my faith, the law of Moses, with a foundation of a Christian belief with {but} and the use of {came by}. The statement brings in IMO a foundation of Jewdaism and a foundation of Christianity in contrast by the author's use of the law given by Moses. I feel put down when I read that contrast posted on a mental health forum that has the owner's guideline to not post what {could lead one of another faith to feel put down}. When two things are contrasted, and there is the potential for the contrast IMO to be interpreted as that one is lacking what the other is claiming to have, then that IMHO could lead those that do not accept the claimes of the one to feel put down.
