When I read Del's thread that disintegrated into possibly one of the ugliest threads I've seen on the hub, I thought it was such a shame....I remember back in the day (yes, I'm a nana) before the hub was giant and had eleventy billion sub sections and areas, there was a thriving thread called "Christian families chat", there was also a weekly bible study thread. There was no exclusion of other members, but there was no name calling, no passive aggressive eye rolls or winks, no arguments, no modding needed - just informal, daily chats between like minded folk.
I'm an atheist, but I haven't always been and I know how hurtful it can be to have a part of your being attacked or mocked. I know that people are generally attacking the religion and not the people that practice the religion, but it's (for the religious people) near impossible to separate the two.
I know bubhub goes in cycles, and next week it'll probably be cloth vs disposables and all this will die down, but I really hope that in the mean time people can just be kind.
Oh and why do I post in threads in this section even though I'm non-religious? Usually because I find the thread interesting.
