They can have a forum "named" Christianity that have post from atheist, agnostics, gnostic and a variety of other non-believers ... mixed in with a few Christians post.

Free speech. Whadda gonna do? Require proof that a poster is actually a Christian?

And besides, who cares? I don't know about you, but I'm convinced my Savior is more than able to confront atheist's and Muslim's and agnostic's or whomever.

Christians come into the atheist forum. We talk to them. Why don't you want to talk to us here?

I don't see a problem with Nonbelievers posting to this subforum as long as they're cool about it.

Personally, I dig the "rough and tumble" of the R&P forum...but this should be different.

This would NOT be the place to...tell Christians they are "delusional" or "ignorant"...knock the Bible in any way or refer to it as the "Buy Bull" or a "Fairytale"...mock God or Jesus and/or say they don't exist, and claim those who think so "aren't right in the head"...refer to religion as "evil" or say it should be done away with...or in any way criticize being Theist.

In summation...Question or respectful contribution: Cool
Criticism/Insult/Disrespect of Belief: Not cool

Just my $.02.

To be perfectly honest - most of the insults that fly back and forth on this forum are between the Christians themselves. Sad but true.

Although, considering that this is only the 15th post of the OP - I feel like this was probably started just to rile people up.

It didn't take any time at all for me to realize that what you say is correct. My mother taught me not to discuss the Bible. We don't really have to. God is in control, the Bible is there as a guide for us and people who want to discuss it are usually wanting to disprove it in some way. It would be more profitable to spend the time reading the Bible.

It is interesting that atheist are allowed to post in the Christian section but if one mentions anything Christian on another thread you get your post removed or are told to go to the Christian thread. We are on your forum and we have to go by your rules, but I have something to tell city-data. Being Christian does not stop when a person leaves church on Sunday. It is part of everything that I do or happens to me on a second time level. If I try to help someone, it will be a part of my answer too. I see many people on city-data that asks questions that I could answer and give them good advice in a heart-beat, but the really helpful answer is not allowed. City-Data censors Christianity.

Amen sis.; continue to tell the truth so that it can help us all.

you are worthy of a rep but i can't give it to you in numbers that's why i had to say it in words.

*give the people their flowers while they are still here cause when they get to other side they ain't gone be studying about any earthly flowers. the Lord's flower garden is out of this world... a woman who had a near death experience said she did not see God but she heard the flowers singing his praises.... (even the colors of the flowers were out of this world/ not of this world).

"Require proof that a poster is actually a Christian" , I can understand how intolerant of an idea that would be ...a forum for Christians that only Christians post in.

I totally agree .... let's start a forum for the NAACP and under "free speech" have white supremacists be allowed to post in it. As long as they confine their post about love while reminding the pro- NAACP posters that their ancestor's theology were primitive knuckle dragging Neanderthals, or that MLK wasn't who he claims to be, or that MLK was sadistic, or that half of what MLK said isn't what he truly meant to have said, it's shouldn't be a conflict. I could not agree with you more, that it would be unreasonable for a NAACP'er to come to an conclusion like that.
