For a long time I have had the idea to create something of a forum for religious discussion, bound to some rules to keep things civilized but also to prevent it from leaning too much to a specific faith. Ideally every faith would be approximately equally represented and everyone would benefit from insights from those other perspectives. We would learn many religions have a strong common base and world peace would follow…. or something.
Having hosted four forums with a member count of 40 being the largest crowd on the best running forum and a total of 3 posts besides my own on my worst running forum, I have little hope for my plans coming to fruition. Yes you ruined world peace by not supporting me!
So I wonder, would you join a forum based on religious discussion based on these statements/ rules:
- No affiliation with one specific religion
- Moderation to achieve an equal (or close to) amount of topics favoring one religion
- Free speech but strict moderation on communication (bashing, flaming, trolling)
- An emphasis on learning
- Subjects could be, but are not limited to: holy texts (bible, Koran, Torah etc.), spiritual practices (ceremonies, prayer, meditation, spellwork), misinterpretation or misrepresentation of religious practices in media.
Let me know and who knows, maybe we could give it a try.
