Politics and religion

Agree or disagree... are politics and religion issues to be avoided here? If you think one is ok and the other not ok, please say so and state why.

Politics aren't just to be avoided...it will get you banned.

I've already stated my opinion several times in other threads, but i'll post once in here for my vote and leave it at that. I'll keep it as civil as possible.

If one is not allowed, both should not be allowed. If politics are banned, so should religion. If religion is allowed, there should be no reason to keep politics banned.

The fact that no one made a big deal out of religion before is not a good reason for religion being allowed and politics banned in my opinion.

Either ban both or allow both. Why should someone be able to choose that one is ok and the other isn't?

No problem with either. Re the daily bible verse, personally, I am blessed by them and look forward to reading them; they aren't obtrusive and one doesn't have to open if one doesn't want to. There have been religious threads that are not of my beliefs but I didn't throw a fit or try to start trouble. Move along on this subject.

I guess the same could be said for political threads too then.

I also want to point out that I think things like asking for compassion/good thoughts/posi mojo-vibes for a sick dog, or for a pup that has "passed over the rainbow bridge" don't necessarily fall into the "ban religion boat".

I do think that if politics are banned, posts strictly involving religion should also be banned.

Just a question - are posts about politics of breed banning/breed specific legislation, animal shelters, animal rights, etc also banned? Apologies - I am new to the board!

Agree 110% on that comment. I don't care what gets banned or doesn't get banned. Wishing good karma on someone or someones dog has absolutely nothing to do with religion.

Governmental politics, repub/demo/indie~ that is not to be discussed.
Current dog affairs has its own forum, and is open to discussion:

Politics gets too many passions going, religion does so too, but most people can keep it respectful.
Rescue also can tend to get the passion going, more members have gotten warnings or bans due to the rescue threads and of course in the past, politics.
Personally I don't go into chat very often, and tend to stay with the GSD related forums, you go where your interests lie, and no one is forced to read anything. That is the beauty of a discussion board.
