...has been removed from the board. Initially Amy removed it for me to review and I gave her the go ahead to return it but closed and with a reminder of our guidelines. However, I have received complaint against that action because I did not remove the posts that argued some of the points stated late in the thread. So I feel it best to remove it entirely.

The subject of what Christianity took from Paganism is, I am sure, an extremely interesting one for some people. But it is also a very controversial subject of discussion and as such has great potential to cause debate and criticism, which is exactly the sort of thing we don't want to host here in Spirituality.

As a reminder:

Quote:
The Spirituality board is a forum of support, respectful requests of information, and sharing of faith and practice. To uphold this purpose the board will not host discussions of debate or criticism. Disagreements about spiritual issues should be set aside out of respect for the diversity and varying interpretations and beliefs that we hold as a community.

While we will not restrict discussions to persons of the faith being discussed we will be active in discouraging an individual from posting for the purpose of disagreement, with no interest in practicing the faith or belief in discussion, or to prove a faith or a person's belief to be wrong, misguided, or not based on fact. Prosletyzing, to convert to a faith or from one, will not be permitted. Controversial subjects of discussion related to spiritual and religious beliefs and origins can be found elsewhere on the internet and we invite you to seek out other sites for that purpose.

It is our wish that Spirituality be a supportive and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Please help us achieve this by doing your part and adhering to our guidelines. And as always, please make sure your posting is in accordance with the MDC User Agreement .
