There should be a stickied set of rules telling people not to preach here, etc. I'm sick of having to wade through all that crap when I post here.

I agree installgentoo,
You post, then leave the conversation. Stop that. That should be a rule.

Ok, then who is going to define what "preaching" is, and based on what criteria?

My bet is that anything pro-religion is going to be considered "preaching" by many on this forum.

So, after a while there won't be anyone but atheists left.

Then all the religion forum will be is a bunch of atheists talking about how dumb religion is all day.

Don't believe that would happen?

I have seen it happen on several forums.

Preaching is the crap that you do.

Preaching is telling people they are going to hell if they don't do x that you believe in.

I woulda mis-guessed on that one. I thought this was the first time you have ever been on a forum site.

If by preach, you mean give details of your position, and why it is right over someone else's....what else would people talk about?

If by preach, you mean stop people from droning on in a stupid manner...it's the internet. Good luck.

If by preach you mean no presentation of religious beliefs...what's the point of having the Religion Forum?

The problem is that everyone has a rule they want to see applied. The next thing you know, there are so many rules every debate becomes a war of alleged violations and everyone is punished for speaking their mind.

Anyone who values freedoms should understand that every rule/law passed is a freedom lost. Laws and rules are the antithesis of freedoms and free expression.

Agreed.
