That is an interesting observation, but I don't see many Buddhists posting there. I guess that's the point. From what I understand, declaring a faith is not required in the major Eastern religions (Ways). Because the Faith board attracts people who follow a Western monotheistic theology, I think there is a legitimate argument to be made to discontinue providing a platform for people to claim religious exclusivity. It is not supportive, and is, perhaps, destabilizing.
Faith does not equate to spirituality.
But you already know that.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
