Lini:

I know what you're saying and actually agree with you. But I don't think that's possible. I think that this board needs to become a "faith" board where only broad concepts can be discussed and religion has to be left out of it according to Dr. Bob's feelings. Or it needs to be "canned". Is that kind of what you meant? The concept of only one way to 'heaven' is the central belief of Christianity, Islam, Jewish beliefs (I think - please correct me if I'm wrong), Buddhism... there's no way to discuss one's religion without that being there, even if it's not stated. Unless we can state "I believe" or "my beliefs are" (leaving out direct statements such as "you will go to hell), this cannot be a "religious faith" board. I asked Dr. Bob to consider changing its title and writing a disclaimer at the top, but he did not respond.

I actually believe in many roads to wherever we're going. And I would love to discuss both theology and philosophy, but it's not going to happen here because discussion is frowned upon.

Because no one belonging to the Islam faith has posted here, or maybe a Buddhist or such, it *seems* as if Dr. Bob is targeting Christians. And he hasn't really made the Christians here feel any better about it.

What was your faith - B'hai? Did I spell that correctly? Now, see, I'd love to hear more about that. And Wiccan, etc. But we can't post Anything Anyone could take as a put-down, and most religious faiths have strict rules which tell one just what one needs to do to get to heaven, to live a righteous life, etc.

This is a no win situation for all. IMHO. And this is a good example of why I, and some others, have hard a tough time here lately. And it's hard to let go, because the site was a good place for us before... it's sad.

- K.

P.S. I find your posts very insightful.
