I think it is incredibly insulting when people put "Christian or Wiccan" answers only.

If you don't want to hear from everyone here, then go find a group that consists of like-minded people. This is supposed to be a public forum for ALL Cafe Mom members. You really shouldn't be excluding people from your questions here.

  • Well I don't mind it....there are times that really the only person who's opinion I would value would be someone who shares my faith...

  • I dont mind it. Id rather see that then bashing back and forth between two religions who dont agree. Sometimes people just wanted answers without being judged or saying "I dont believe in YOUR God" blah blah.

  • I agree with pp. They post on here because they can reach a larger group of people with the same faith. With most of those groups, not a lot of people belong and are active. Just ignore the question if it bugs you.

  • I don't think it's insulting. I think they are just trying to save me time answering, since they don't want my opinion anyway! :-)

    I do agree if they do that a lot, they should start their own group or join one with their values.

  • How else do you know which questions to pop popcorn before reading?

    In all seriousness, those questiosn fall into two categories - asking for a perpective on something that requires a basic knowledge of the faith, or simply asking that those who are not interested skip the question instead of piping up and telling everyone they're going to hell. I'm not going to join a Christian group just to ask a single question - most likely they only reason they'd let me join is if they thought they had a chance to convert me. Likewise, I may want a perspective on something from people other than those I talk to every day, and ask for input here, instead of asking in a group where I already know what answers I'll get.

  • I think the point the OP is making(and I may be wrong)division is caused by seperation.I learn about the beliefs of others so I can respect them by asking them and by learning from them.

  • Sorry, I don't see it as insulting. Instead it can be a way for a person to get specific answers to a topic only someone of a specific faith would be familiar with. Too often I read people asking a question only to have someone who isn't familiar with the topic give inaccurate information, or a rude, preachy reply.
