Religion on E-hell
« on: May 18, 2015, 01:34:15 AM »
I understand that it's against the rules to discuss religion in the forums, but why does it keep popping up then? If there is going to be a "no religion" policy, can't it be universal?

I'm not a religious person and it does annoy me when posters seem to think they can freely talk about their religious views. Particularly when they name them.

I know it I talked about my spiritual views on here as freely it would be a very different story.

As far as I know, the rule is not "no religion" but "no discussing / debating religion", "no proselyting" and definitely "no disparaging other religions".

Most of the time the point can be made by using colours or fruits as placeholders for the specific religion, but sometimes being specific about it is relevant for the question / answer.

The policy is that religion can be discussed if pertains to etiquette. By that I mean is if a poster asks questions what about what should they do, etiquette wise, if they attend a religious service that is foreign to them and don't the what the norm is for that religion.
