Not discussing religion or politics is a basic rule of polite discourse. This is a totally reasonable request.

Hear hear angry and truth - one of my posts (for which I received many supportive PMs) was deleted by the mods. I think this is just one example of the pathetic age we live in when we are constantly being told we must avoid offending others. Hence the crap of Political Correctness (oh sorry, have I hurt a PC believer?)

The fact is, that as truth said, EVERYTHING can offend someone. I could have got offended by the remark made by a poster who was blatently anti-abortion and kept calling the bunch of cells which had been aborted as 'a baby' and 'a life'.

There may be Mormons who come into this site as BSs and get offended because someone says, 'Gosh I need a coffee!'

For crying out loud - we're all meant to be adults.

As a new member to SI, this was the first thread I read. Not sure it bodes well for the rest of the site if everyone can't feel safe to share their thoughts in a respectful manner. I can understand the lack of relevance between political beliefs and the healing from infidelity, but religious faith is a totally different matter. To many, it is the core sustainance that got them through the pain, to either forgive or repent, and to move on to a healthier place. Should this be a missionary battlefield to win souls? No, of course not. But to preclude someone from explaining how faith helped them through the recovery process denies them the opportunity to express themselves honestly on this forum. I thought that was what this forum was all about.

I'm not sure why you think us moving your joke thread to Fun & Games was "bullshit"

I've got to say that if I post to a thread and say I'll pray for you, that should really be allowed. I know that in America we have to bend backwards over for athiests, commies, and everyone else for the purpose of not offending the obscenely SMALL minority, but for christ sakes (intended)are infidelity boards under attack? This board IS based in Texas. I didn't think we played that shit here.

Spin...

I'm confused by your post. Are you saying that because SI is based in Texas it should be run in fundamentalist fashion and people should be able to say what they want about religion?

If you could clarify, I would appreciate it

Healing and faith in God often go hand in hand. I have always enjoyed reading and posting here but now I have to be politically correct and talk like an atheist ????

Grow up moderators - are we on a communist site where freedom of speech is non -existant?? Me thinks you all have too much time on your hands to micro-manage the site and no backbone to allow freedom of speech.

And your above post just shows what a tolerant Christian you are.

You have a PM from yesterday.

FYI...

Freedom of speech is a constitutional right that applies only to situations that involve the government. Private organizations, companies and individuals can limit you in any way they please. THAT is *their* right.

ETA: Posting here is a privilege, *not* a right.

Why label me as a "tolerant Christian"....YOU just offended me by assuming I am!! What if I told you I believed in Allah, Mohammed and Buddah???
Do not private post to me - have enough backbone to say what you have to say here in front of everyone else. The more I hear from you moderators the more you make me
The people at this site are great..you moderators SUCK!

***What if I told you I believed in Allah, Mohammed and Buddah??? ***

You didn't mention any of them...you referred to God, which is meant in the Christian language.

I have backbone enough to tell you that we don't need your insults here.

I hope you find the healing and peace you seem to need.

Bye bye.

Freedom of speech in the US is your constitutional right to criticize your government without fear of persecution.

It does not mean you can falsely shout "fire" in a crowded theater.

It also does not mean you can go to someone's house, become abusive, and expect that no on can make you leave.

This is a private site. Think of it as DS and MH's living room, if you will. They've invited us in and welcomed us - behave as any courteous guest would and abide by their rules, and you'll have no problems.

Otherwise, they may pitch you out on your ass, and all the screaming of "You're mean!" at them won't make a bit of difference.

No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

I'm new here but for what it's worth I am very hard headed regarding the aforementioned topics and I have seen them turn other boards (also not political or religious) to crap. This is an excellent policy and I'm not indicitive of the moderator's faith or lack thereof. Good work mods.

But they have said that if Dick Cheney gets a nun pregnant then I am able to discuss it as an infidelity related thread!
