SI is a support board from the pain of infidelity. We have very few rules here. We have asked in the past to please refrain posting about religious or political beliefs.

It is beyond difficult to moderate something that some are offended by and others not. In the future any religious and/or political threads will be locked.

Yeah, a sticky bun would be nice. Almonds or pecans?

Does this include taglines that are offensive to Christians? Also, may we state that we are praying for an individual?

This only applies to actual threads that induce religious or political debates

One more question, DS. Does this mean we can get rid of the Clinton/oral sex stuff too?

Are you stating direct attacts on a particular religious belief? I personally have found the posts from other believers as to their faith in helping thru the issues extremely helpful and encouraging. Please explain...not sure I understand.

I think maybe it's okay to mention that your faith has helped you through, but I think what they want is for folks to not be suggestive towards any one particular religion, or even to offer anything of your own. Most people know what you mean when you use the word faith, so I would say that is pretty safe.

What do you say SI Staff?

i don't know about politics, but i believe that religion and spirituality BELONG in a site that deals with infidelity, commitment and forgiveness.

But people of varying religions post here. Some religious posts may offend. Religion and politics tend to become heated discussions. I think this is why the topics are discouraged.

There are opportunities to be offended by something every day. I consider myself most fortunate when I have the option to turn the channel, put down the magazine, or not post a reply. As long as that remains a choice, I don't see that censorship is required.

Mods - I completely understand your goal. I understand the desire to keep this site pure & supportive.

I just wish that we could all come here, take what we need, leave what we have to offer, & ignore what doesn't apply to our situations.

Interesting..glad to see this actually.

I've been involved in a few of these heated discussions.

I benefit from, utilize and cherish freedom of speech in my everyday life, make a living this way actually, but the goal here is to facilitate healing from infidelity.

There are other forums on the internet and elsewhere to hash out our differences. Here, at SI, I'm grateful to the mods for keeping us on track.

Thanks Mods, for keeping this a safe place

For a lot of people - men and women - and for a lot of, say, Orthodox Muslims, Catholics and Jews, it is difficult, if not impossible, to separate politics from their beliefs.

In the Muslim world, I believe if my research and reading is correct, that there is no difference, distinction or separation of beliefs and politics; both are one in the same.

Ditto for Orthodox Catholics.

I suppose the only ones such *wouldn't* apply to would, really, be atheists.

Denying my politcical sympathies would be like me denying my religious/spiritual beliefs, however I understand "why" such is said.
