I'm sorry, but when I see a post that reeks of spiritual abuse, I can't keep quiet.

My vote is to completely eliminate the Spirituality Forum.

I never saw the modified relpies above, but I'm guessing maybe this forum is better-off dumped all together. I know I only speak for myself, but I'd rather have ALL of these guys as brothers in healing CSA effects than at each others throats over religion.

My vote is very strongly to keep the forum. We need to learn to talk about these differences because they come up very, very often.

The issue is that discussion and debate too often devolves into a pissing match between beliefs. People have no tolerance and don't think about how what they're saying will be perceived... or they just don't care.

And if I see intolerance of:

- any groups typically protected by progressive human rights laws

I will point out the error in thinking. Male, female, gay, straight, Christian, Muslim, Jewish anyone protected under these pieces of legislation.

BTW there are external agencies who monitor sites for activity that marginalizes particular protected groups, and they have clout too. I submit that their stamp of approval is vital to the reputation of MS and I plead for protection of these groups at every opportunity.

As long as doing so does not put you in violation of the discussion board guidelines, you are free to do so, as is everyone else.

Hogan,

ALL the groups you mentioned above deserve protection, and I hope that all members keep that in mind when they post.

I sincerely hope i did not write anything that falls under spiritual abuse. Back to the root of the thread; I was just hoping we could rely on each other's beliefs/positions for perspective.

For example: I have a frnd who is dieing of Cancer (soon) and is an abuse survivor. He believes that anyone with adequate "good works" and is "a good person" will go to heaven. I KNOW two Christian sect's positions on this. I have NO idea what (still) what Buddhism thinks comes after death and what determines the results. He leans toward Buddhism but wants to explore the faith he rejected as a kid.

However, I now feel like ANY entry/post in this forum is like smoking around an open pool of gasoline.
