you said that we shouldnt ask something like this

"Religion
Why does the Koran teach _____?"


but how are we suppossed to discuss religion if we dont ask questions about it.? i think as long as one keeps it civilized it will be fine. perhaps it should be worded differently?

i think someone asking a legit question, for knowledge sake, can also ask it in a non-threatening manner. it will be obvious what the intent of the post is. The mods aren't morons, they can tell the difference between questioning, and trolling.

plus, if the topic turns bad, there is always the opportuinity to close the thread later.

Bump. I think the issue is one of tone, .i.e. the difference between "Why does the Koran direct men to grow beards?" vs. "Why do people consider Muhammad a prophet when he was really a psychotic child molester?"

I think it depends on the context of the question like you stated.

I thought this was going to be a place to have some nice religous and political arguements. Oh well.

The thread will be modified with some rules for this forum, but I just wanted to copy it over to try and keep things civil and make people aware that the same rules apply about not flaming and keeping things civil in all forums.

Jestros,

What you said in your thread was awful. I think you need a redefinition of what "nice" means.

work on your tone and communication and maybe you can ask it again without it offending even me, a strong advocator of the separation of church and state.

Although I would like to see god off money and out of the schools, I thought it was clear that my tone was in jest. You think I was serious with a line like "wup some ass"?
