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.

PLEASE NOTE - The No Politics guideline has been revised and the banner at the top of the forums has changed to reflect the change -

IMPORTANT NOTICE: SI Staff has decided that the recent no politics guideline changes will be permanent. There is to be NO mention of political names, and absolutely no political topic content in any context. Any violation of this guideline will result in the loss of posting privileges. Thank you.

This means members are no longer allowed to post about politicians even if the post is infidelity related.

If you have questions, please contact the staff to discuss.

Thank you for your cooperation.

-SI Staff

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?

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.

what now? ( member #6134) posted at 5:21 PM on Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

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.
