    RELIGION WAS "BASHED":?:


    How do you define "bashing" as it relates to YOUR RELIGION or that of others:?:



    "the more you KNOW, the more you OWE" (author unknown to me)

    When my avataur was repeatedly removed form this forum is the best example. But, there are many others. My thing is I do not have time to waste with such ignorance and arrogance. But, I do notice it. I just try to avoid letting it bother me too much.

    Hey abdurratln and Thanks for sharing!

    I suppose that means your avatar for you, represented your religion and that people "bashed" your religion by removing the avatar?

    That's pretty serious in the sense that what you are suggesting would mean the site owner or management team were the culprits of said "bashing" as they would be the only people able to remove an avatar. In fact, I don't even know that moderating team members could do that.

    I am curious about people's experiences of what "bashing my religion" means.
    It would have to be based on text comments since this is our mode of communicating here. Some may have made video's or shared video's with messages people experience as "bashing".

    I'd like to know exactly what that looks or sounds like cause I may have been accused of doing so without realizing it was taken as "bashing" of one's religious preferences.

    If we can not communicate what we experience as hurtful or helpful, how will others know what to give and/or what to take away.

    Come on people, why so shy:?: Some can be quick to accuse someone of "basing" their religion yet won't say exactly WHAT that bashing looks like:?:

    If you don't tell someone that is your toe they are standing on, they are likely to continue to think it is a piece of cloth on the floor or something.

    Brother Abdurratln ... that can't be true. We don't remove Member's avatars, and I'm sure the Moderating TEAM agrees, and will say so if they don't.

    If we had a problem with you, we would just ban you, before taking a single privilege away. That's not how we manage.

    Did you make a report, ask if there was some technical difficulty, or just assume the worst in us?

    :heart:

    Sister True ... Peace and Blessings,

    I consider them all mine, because some of all my people, live them all ... and as they are, so am i.

    To your question, yes, i have seen them all bashed ... but i have also been blessed to see them all strive to work together.

    I'm encouraged by the latter, it's where my focus is, the very mission of this community.

    Love You Sister! Thanks for Sharing! :grouphug:

    :heart:

    Hey Destee :wave: THERE YOU GO!

    Thanks for sharing yet STILL...I'm trying to overstand exactly and real SPECIFICALLY examples of "bashing".

    For example, when I refer to Christianity as "christ insanity" ...well I can see how someone who professes Christianity would experience that as "bashing" so there.

    When I say it, it is what it has become for ME. Mind you, I mind myself and don't say it here and that's not because anyone has said they were offended by it..thou I can see how they would be...

    Anywho...I am interested still in hearing specific examples of "bashing" a religion

    With all due respect Sister ... i think it promotes the wrong energy, to wallow in such a place.

    It's so easy for us to go to this bashing place, actually doing it to each other without even trying, to stir these energies intentionally seem counter-productive.

    I guess I've seen so much of it right here, we have example after example of it, so much so that my cup runneth over with it.

    I'm sick of it, but that's just me, I realize we're not all at the same place.

    I found this interesting, that you recognize the term "christ insanity" would probably be received as offensive by some.

    Just knowing that, acknowledging and acting accordingly, responsibly ... each of us, inside our own selves ... is all that is needed.

    Let's just each do what we already know ... or not do what we already know would offend another ... and half the problem would be over.

    But ... yall can wallow in the bashings of old if you'd rather ... don't mind me.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Yes well you know I disagree that what I am asking is representative as "wallowing" in anything.

    Yet because you have said it...that is what is has now become.

    No one was responding anyway and I doubt they will now.

    Mostly because it is easy for us to slap a label on what someone is saying, yet when asked direct questions for clarity, silence....

    people pose to just "know". Despite the fact that we all hold different meanings for different acts or actions.

    I stated the purpose for asking the question.
    To give others the benefit of KNOWING what they experience as "bashing" and giving them the opportunity to refrain from it.

    The christian religion is christ insanity for me and shall remain so....i'll just no longer say it here...for fear of banning and being charged with being disrespectful....even tho this has never happened..yet..the possibility is ever present.


    So, I'll end this thread now since the fate of this thread has been sealed when you put the stamp "wallowing" on it. Thanks:toast:

    Sister True ... if i had the kind of power you suggest, everyone here would be a Premium Member. Stop it.

    I shared my opinion, which I have the right to do, as does everyone. It is an opinion vested in the very purpose of this community, and so yes, it may have been presented in a firm manner ... but it also encouraged everyone to continue as they please ... as all open discussions are able to do.

    C'mon Sister ... you expect me to have a discussion forum where folk can share their opinion, but I can't share mine?!

    It was my opinion Sister, why you gett'n all mad 'cause I shared it?
