This forum is for use of spiritual use, and not for off-topic posts etc.

Certain members are hijacking this forum for trivial self centred views of life, and not spiritual issues.
The mention of 'rape by God, and Satan, do not belong in a spiritual forum.

Can the mods please address this issue, as it affects more members than myself, and the poster seems to want some kind of personal recognition, even when they are not saying that they are a male survivor!

I guess my radar is worki,g overtime, but it's never so far wrong,

Did you see the last 30 seconds of the clip? I think that is where the point was made.

that's a lot of pain to sit through for 30 seconds.
i don't care for how they deliver the message either.
but if they're reaching people - isn't that what it's about?

I was referring to the users' posts on being 'raped by God in Heaven.

Viva Israel, without saying why?

This is not an off topic forum, but certain users think it's a place to scoff, and gain pointa.

oh, that post.
I saw that as someone's way of reaching out, being open, and vulnerable. myself - I can't see a better place for a discussion on a fear of God & Heaven than the 'Spirituality and Survivors' forum... Personally I don't think it's fair to call someone's fears "trivial".

Yeah...I don't like when we call out each other's posts in public. We should let the Mods do their job.

Youtube stuff should be in off-topic.

The political thread should be in open forum, if at all.

Also the "Rape" post did not seem like a cry' to me, and should
also have been posted in open forum.

Just what I think,

Guys,

If you have doubts about posts or threads, rather than debate it here please just use the "notify" key at the bottom of the post. That let's 3-4 of us know there might be a problem, gives you an opportunity to express your reservations, and provides us with a link to go right to the material in question.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Larry, aka roadrunner,

Reality2k4;

I share much of the sentiments you have in mind.
And yes; this Spiritual Forum is often misused; which is why I usually don't subscribe to it's threads.
A lot of people use this Forum to gripe and vent their frustrations often due to the great pain that the majority of us all carry. Whether your Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Hindu I think we all carry a heavy load of pain from our past that we often don't understand or are able to articulate within ourselves. Even a person who is well indoctrinated with his or her faith can end up blaming God for their pain whether physical or mental or combination of both. I've seen a considerable amount of frustration hashed out in this forum.
However; when this frustration gets to a point of denigrating somebody else's religion. I think this rudely crosses the fine line. I also don't believe any Satanic references or affinity to their own Satanic beliefs belong on this forum. Reality2k4; if you find something offensive in this forum P.M. the Moderators, there here to police what is being said.

Why not Satanism? Its a spirituality (not mine however), so should be allowed here, i feel. Just because Chrirtians dont like it it should be banned? Maxbe this should be the Christian forum then. *shrug*

Andy;

This is a prime example why I don't usually monitor this forum.
But hey if the Moderators think Satanism it's perfectly OK. All the power to them. At least I'll be prudent in whom not to trust.
Why do you only point out Christians ? I've read that the five major religions of the world are against Satanism.
So you have a problem with Christians. What's new.

I wouldnt have issues if they didnt call my whole life a sin. I guess its easier for them to dish. I was once christian until they cast me out at 18. So do you blame me? Now im more of an agnostic for Christ. I love Jesus! \:\) But anyway, i know how short of outlets christians are so ill let them have this one without my "whining" and disturbances. PS - Buddhists dont even concern themselves with any monotheistic religions, let alone be against one. \:\)

Gentlemen,

After watching this thread run for ten days or so there are a couple points the moderators feel need to be made.

1) If you see a post or a thread that you feel is a violation of the Discussion Board Guidelines or the stated rules for the Spirituality Forum your duty is to use the notify button on the bottom of the offending post and explain to the Moderators what you feel the problem is.

2) Your duty is NOT to make further inflamatory posts or start new threads taking other users to task over their posting habits.

3) All posts within this forum must, in the view of the moderators, meet the requirements stipulated here. Those that do not are subject to edit or removal.
