I am intentionally posting this twice and intentionally posting it in P&CE and in RD, because it pertains specifically to those two areas and the way politics and religion are intertwined - this is not about cafemom or individual personalities, but about the idealogies behind the two areas of debate.
When subjects come up that involve morality or religion, why is it the Christians who post in the P&CE section seem to have a very different view of their faith than those who participate in the RD section? It's clearly demonstrated when a question is recategorized from one section to the other. Do politics directly influence one's interpretation of their faith? Do they even take the place of someone's religion? Even when there's a similar core group of people involved in both sections, why is it one is more intolerant than the other?Answer Question

Great points Pam. Maybe those who more frequently hang out in RD actually walk the walk? I have a hard time believing that anyone is a hardcore (add denomination/faith group) member, when I read some of the degrading, disrespectful, judgemental garbage posted. One can post religious verses all day long, but when they are followed with the aforementioned crap, the message is lost, IMO. I never take those posters seriously-and it has zero to do with being emotional- I attended religious schools and was raised in a religious home-never was I instructed to judge others, use profanity to or at others or hit other faith based groups over the head with MY message. I was never compelled to believe or else...fear was not involved- Sadly, some are missing the message-

Excellent points lovin. I also have been enlightened and enticed to more thoroughly research other religions by a couple of posters here. Some of these posters are very knowledgeable and their posts represent a breath of fresh air-
