I am a Jesus freak and yet I don't post on the religiless club, hey you need to follow Jesus (although I encourage you to). Whatever happens when you and I die could be different or the same. But I also believe that God made the earth 6,000 years ago, but hey, who knows.

I just have to make a suggestion. I don't think there should be ANYTHING related to religion on WI. No clubs, thread, A/S. None. My two friends got in a bad fight over religion, and I am afraid that Religion scuffles are going to arise soon enough on WI...

I'm not saying to ban "please pray for my ____" or show pride in what you believe. I'm saying to ban what occurred during the holidays.
I agree with these two posts. Although I agree with this thread too.

This is a great thread. Yes, we're all different and have different opinions. But that's just fine. What actually matters is if you're rude to people who don't think like you---then that could pose a problem. Being respectful and polite is mandatory.

There have been a few religion scuffles that are always settled by Mods. I know many people from both clubs that would be very sad to not have a main place to talk with people that believe the same as they do .

And, I agree with you, we are all people . I believe that there is peace right now between us.

AAhh world wars have been fought over religious differences. It would be nice if starting here, in our own little corner of the universe, we could all agree to respect everyones rights to their own beliefs. Who is to say what is right and wrong, to each his own. Just live by the golden rule. For people who are trying to find their way, answer questions, don't push your beliefs. Keep things simple and lets play. I come here to get away from the pressures of the day, and the bombardment of everyone else's beliefs that they are the only way to health and happiness. My life and yours may be unconventional, but who is to say it is wrong. Life is short and time is precious, as long as nobody is hurt along the way, live your life and thank God, Mother Nature, or the whom ever you choose for another beautiful day.

Good points, and interesting discussion.

I am inclined to agree with Quack Quack and Asterravos that discussion of religion may not be appropriate on WI. I do think that this is a nice forum that allows people of different ages to talk and share about many subjects not related to WW. That can be fun and educational, but has to be a big time and energy commitment from the mods and admins! And if things start getting unpleasant I would certainly support them stopping all discussion other than that relating directly to WW.

I, myself, am a Christian, but have avoided religious threads (I personally don't feel like the work freak should be used in the same sentence as "Jesus", but hey, that's just me).

If you do research on the subject of "Etiquette" - ("Office Etiquette" in particular), it's stressed that there are subjects that should not be discussed in the workplace because no matter how well-intentioned you can be, friction is the result.

As a rule, things you should not talk about in the workplace are; politics, religion, parenting, personal finances, 'romantic' relationships, and personal medical maladies.

As these are 'sensitive' areas, I usually try to steer clear of any discussion of them with people I don't know well. I'm not shy or ashamed to voice my opinion and I don't reject those of others, but some example subjects are:
Politics - pro war or anti war?
Religion (even IF all Christian) - Trinity, no Trinity? God, no God?
Parenting, - Spanking, no spanking?
Relationships - married, not married? same gender/opposite?
Medical - homeopathic vs prescription

Sometimes just a glance at any of this subjects can 'spark' a feeling in us that we feel we need to act on, and let's face it - it's hard to correctly understand what is written when we can't judge tone of voice, sarcasm, etc. so it may not always come off as sounding the way you wanted it to sound.

So, yes, we're all people - but what's the purpose of this forum? It's for the world of Webkinz and those who love Webkinz!! I think it was Bindidog who said that she comes on here for light-hearted play, and that's what I'm all about - keep it light-hearted and fun, follow the rules of etiquette. I don't think it's 'censorship' to avoid talking about certain subjects, but if you were part of a club, say, that all liked knitting - would there really be many heated words over how you cast on your stitches?
"Oh no! I prefer the British cast on method" "No, it's All American for me!" "Bamboo are the best needles" "No, it HAS to be metal!"

So, "clubs" for people who have similar interests I think is a GREAT idea - but I don't approve of ones that can offer too much room for debate and heated emotions.

That's my 2 cents!
Spoiler: show
If you don't put in your 2 cents, how can you get change?

Spoiler: show
If someone will give me a penny for my thoughts, then one must wonder: why must you pay 2 cents to give your opinion, when you only get paid 1 for your thought?

Exactly. No matter what you believe in (or if you don't believe in anything at all) we should be kind and caring to each other.
