Reading some of the posts around here in the not-so-layman jargon, it's hard to gauge whether this forum attracts the more anti-religious zealots or the more righteous folks happy to help those in spiritual need.

So what's the consensus on where in line the rhetoric falls around here?

I expect your view will depend on which goal posts you're defending.

That doesn't really answer the OP.

It attracts folks (some righteous, some not) who seek answers, and possibly spiritual guidance, or enlightenment...Claiming a denomination of your own isn't what determines whether you are a zealot or not, in fact more religious than "anti" religious would fit that catagory.

Outside of the Christian section, I'd say you'll get alot of challenges to your faith.

...and that's how it should be. If Christians don't want to be challenged they have their own forum in which to slap each other on the back and claim superiority over us uncivilised heathens and others of different faiths...outside of that forum they should be prepared to be challenged on their claims.
