I think I'm going to retire from the Religious Debate section. The bashing and drama and nit-picking is just becoming really, really childish. I don't want the attitudes and opinions of some to somehow make me view all people of certain groups in a negative light. So many have such a prejudice against one group or another. For a while it was entertaining, but does anyone else think it's getting old? Maybe this post will just start more drama, but that's NOT my intention. I'm just noticing such a complete lack of respect and I think I'm done with it, especially at this time of year. It seems like some people have their minds made up on those who are different from them, and are not open to anything different. A lot could be gained from open-mindedness, if only some were willing to give it a shot. I am in no way perfect...far from it...and that's why I just can't stand to watch it go on anymore.
Well, despite all that, Religious Debate mamas, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Yule, Festivus, New Year, and anything else you choose to celebrate.
Vent over. :)

I've enjoyed debating in P&CE as well as Religion, but some of the people on here are unnecessarily nasty--in both sections. They are taking away any pleasure in reading or responding to the questions asked here.
I rarely venture into the P&CE section, and will normally only open posts that aren't written by the more contentious of the group, and I'm starting to feel that way about the Religion section, too. I am becoming very selective about which posts I'll even bother to read, unless for some reason, I just have the urge to be insulted or to watch others being insulted.
