    Well, lads, it appears that the Brotherhood as a whole is suffering as a result of the "Us VS. Them" mentality that is coming out of all the religious debates as of late. More than a few members, some of whom you probably value as fellow CK5ers, are getting to the point that they no longer want to be a part of the site. When those kind of feelings start to become apparent, I am forced as a Moderator to act.

    Secondly, and most importantly, I'm on the verge of losing a good friend due to the fact my position as a Mod keeps me from taking sides in an argument. I generally try to inject a little balance into most threads that take a turn for the worse, but it seems that my efforts just aren't cutting it when it comes to keeping everyone happy.

    As a result, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, I am asking that all of you refrain from getting into religious discussions until further notice. Let's be honest- rarely does anything good come from these discussions, and the bad far outweighs the good in 90% of the cases.

    I'm sorry if you don't agree with this new policy, but my job here is to keep everything running smoothly and the topic of religion makes it really hard to do my job properly.

    Funny how something considered to be so great (religion), can cause so much trouble. Not only here, but worldwide also.

    I really think it'd be best if people would say "ok" and move on. No more than that or this will turn into something else.

    Huh? Are you referring to me?

    EDIT: Sorry for adding something non-essential to the thread, I'm just confused.

    Sorry for any problems I may have caused you Canmore. If something comes on tv that I don't like, I change the channel. I don't call the network and demand they put something else on though.

    How's that other thing coming, anything more?

    So no more Adventures of Jesus and RJ?


    *sigh.*

    Ah well. Such is the bread of an everyday life, from mornin' to noon, to this shadowless night.

    x2.

    If you ban Religion threads then a Political thread ban is moot. In today's climate there is no seperating the two. Thanks Canmore, It will be welcome change if it can be enforced.

    I have a feeling that this has something to do with a PM I got today from a fellow member!
