    I don't think I can be described as religious, however, I entered the translation thread and the earlier one be ause faith fascinates me.

    I also love religious history and I love hearing people's interpretations of text.

    Apologies if any of my random contributions have offended.

    Yes I realise that, but a bit of respect wouldn't go astray.

    I just don't get why its NOT ok to voice your opinions about, say, formula feeding, but you can openly call a person who believes in God less intelligent, and it is ok? A partnered person can't say they 'feel like a single parent' when they are having bad day because single parents are offended, you can't say you believe everyone should give breastfeeding a go because formula feeders get upset, you can't state facts about the benefit of natural birth without people getting offended. But its ok to call someone stupid for believing in God.

    I just think its rude.

    I definitely agree.

    But to use the argument that posters were not specifically invited into the conversation is an invalid one.

    That wasn't my point, my point was that if religious door knockers come knocking you DO have a choice to not answer the door or tell them you are not interested, whereas a forum is different as its open to everyone.

    Although bf are often told not to enter ff threads, partnered parents not to enter single parent threads etc. I am not suggesting non-religious people don't enter 'religious' threads, just that people are respectful of people's beliefs.

    Is it an attempt to discredit people?

    Is it to prove them wrong?

    Is it to make out like you know more than religious people?

    Or is it something else?
    To discuss it??

    You don't have to be religious to discuss it. Perhaps if you want it to be a religious-people-only discussion, then say so at the start of the thread.

    Um, I can't count the number of times people have been told to shove out of single parents sections because they aren't single and haven't been 'invited'.

    And I completely get that when someone comes into the section and sprays anti single mother nonsense, but how is that different to going into the religious and spiritual threads and spraying anti religion views?

    Religious door knockers do not take no for an answer. Yes you are able to say no they can not come in, but that does not stop them knocking weekend after weekend, talking to your dog etc etc.

    If people are upsetting you ignore them. Report their post if you feel it warrants it. You control your response to them, just as you are responsible for your response.

    That go into a thread and mock people. There's a big difference.

    Five in the Bed.
    what I want to know is HOW do they make up their own minds...what goes through teh head of someone who has chosen this lifestyle to make them accept 'faith' over reason.
    I think this is a good topic to start in another thread.
