The current discussion thread is in the religious section and people have been quite respectful and seem genuinely curious.
What I don't understand is this - there have been 'religious people' in these threads who don't agree with parts of the bible etc. So is the requirement that you have to be religious or just that you have to blindly agree with everything the church and bible believe? Because obviously certain religious people are not welcome either!

So basically the idea is that BubHub should be a place where you can put people down as much as you want and the onus is on that person to press 'ignore'? I think people should just be respectful of others' beliefs in the first place. That doesn't mean they have to agree, just respect taht different people believe different things.

All I want is for people to be respectful. Many threads in this section end up closed because people lack respect. Many people who have religious beliefs don't post out of fear of ridicule.
We should not need to hide away in a private group just to avoid rude, disrespectful people.

Dawkins has some great stuff to say on 'respecting religions'...and how it can lead to extremism.
There is a difference though, respecting a 'person' of a certain religion and questioning the Origins of that religion can be done at the same time.

So clearly it's not about being religious or non-religious. It's about not questioning *anything*. Those are the only people 'welcome' apparently

Yes people get offended at others comments - just the same as in religious threads. None of its deemed ok IMO... But it's all the same really. The only changing factor is the person being offended.

Like any controversial topic, there are going to be people with strong views who can't help themselves.
Personally, I think that a lot of terrible, evil things have been done because of religion and not discussing it because "they are my beliefs, don't question me" does not sit well with me at all.
That said, I agree that people should be respectful to each other. I guess religion is another one of those things like single parenting, bottle feeding, controlled crying etc that degenerates into rudeness sometimes.

Pegasus has suggested starting a religious group in the other thread, it looks like you are looking for an argument by starting this thread.
OR if you don't want your beliefs challenged at all, then go on a Christian forum
The 'rude' & 'disrespectful' thread you are all referring to was in the open chat section, so why are we even discussing this 'issue'? Or can we not challenge it there either?
