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.
