The use of nicknames as the thread name. I see it all the time. Why isn't that being addressed?

Holy shit. ISn't there anything else to bitch about? Who cares. This is not the point of this website. Why has this become the most important issue rather than dealing with healing ourselves? This was s really good place for me, but as of recently it's starting to get dramatic.

Not right at the moment, we are dealing with the issue at hand. I'm sorry if you feel left out.

2b- you are right. I like being here and getting some advice and help. I really don't want to sound like a bitch, but can we just forgot about these issues? i mean, what's done is done...the SC gave us the guidlines. Can we just move on, right? I know we all hate change. The type of people some of us are but Im sick of this.

Hey Deena
I know you're new...so I hope you won't judge the board because of this...as peacesoul said on another post "we're codependent's...of course we overreact! We love the drama"

It's true...even for me a little bit. šŸ™‚ There really is a bit of a rush that comes from this type of thing...it's like the urge to call...getting all worked up, trying to be heard, trying to "change" someone else.

Not to belittle how people feel...on the contrary, getting worked up prevents us from feeling and dealing!! It's the nature of the beast we're here to fight!! šŸ™‚

This will fizzle out...and hopefully everyone will kiss and make up?

kc

The problem is that we don't agree with the guidelines and people feel they are being censored unfairly. The issue must be dealt with.

Here's another thought....maybe if whomever wants to have relegion in their thread they can post something on the headline so people that are offended won't have to go there.

Just a thought...I'd hate to leave too but like I said before...let's move on Please!

Artist - Chill-Out! My nickname is up there right now. I imagine that is what made you think of this. My nickname was put there to touch base with someone that has helped me and I have done the same. Any other suggestions how we do that w/o putting a nickname up there? We helped each other out w/o the mention of religion too...... There are other places to go to discuss religion. This isn't the place. Take this site for what it is........ A group of people helping each other out. I think there is a huge difference in using a nickname on this site and using religion. They don't like religion in schools and its been that way for a while......How are you doing in fighting that?

KC you are right...
I will only read the threads that apply to a situation. This has been therapuetic for me and I'd hate to cause enemies. I spoke my peace. Im done.

artist2,
Can we agree to drop this? You and I beleive the same. If you read the posts above and on the toher threads, there are two separate opinions, and NO ONE is going to change their mind about either...both sides are set.

Rest in the fact that no other subkect has been as controversial on these threads, and you know there is a reason for that. Everyone seems to be in a judgemental frame of mind.

I suggest dropping it altogether...truthfully it does not matter...everyone has free will, and we will go on and live our lives, evryone will, according to what we believe. As MamaC so eloquently said: IT IS NOT OUR BATTLE.

No one has aplogized, evreyone is just interested it seems on pointing out the gook in the other. Good to stand up for what we all beleive in...but face it...you can't beat a dead horse. Let it go is my suggestion. I too am angry, but what good does it do...none. Just pray.

Hey again.I don't mean to bring this up again but i agree with dee about whoever posts a thread on religion,they don't have to go and read it.Thats an excellent way i think to avoid all the drama.

I'm assuming the reason the sc brought that issue up is because something must've happen on this site concerning religion and the bible that it caused a conflict.

Theres a will and a way.I know for me i don't bring up religions i just talks about what god wants us to do.Most defininitely its up to the person.They don't have to agree or disagree.They have a right to express their opinion.God does not want for us to talk about him in a conflicting way,he wants us to do things in peace.

So i am assuming thats what happened.Otherwise i can agree with deena.Anything is worth a try.We cannot give up the fight of faith.Remember what god said about that too?

Religion is an easy thing to ridicule. And for those looking for a way to cause a stir and bring up issues that people take seriously and feel deeply about, what better way than to complain about people expressing their religious beliefs. I don't even think that people here "express" their religious beliefs. I think the better term would be sharing. Nobody forces their beliefs on anyone else or preaches. They only do it for the good of others, hoping to help, heal and comfort. For those who offer help and comfort in another way or are seaking comfort and are not religious, there are plenty of threads out there who have no religious ties. Everyone is here to support each other in the way they know best. Let's try and honor how each and everyone of us is different and allow us to all come together and celebrate our differences. By taking away this right of expression, we are alienating those who need this site and have true friends here.

OMW, you sound like a very intelligent person. Well-spoken and I respect that. Thank you for your input!

Restless, true... the thread was meant to heal, the poster meant to share something she felt was good in her life, thinking it might help someone else.

It's a shame things got so out of hand. But now we know where the tender places are with people.
