I'd not thought about it until now, but that was exactly what was stated by the OP of a prior thread...
"Next time I ask a Christian question I will know who to listen to and who not to listen to. That was the purpose of this question, not for debate."
Now, we all know that there are some unnamed individuals we simply ignore based on prior experience with (mainly because they're completely fruit loops), BUT- when factual information is presented, does it somehow become less valid, less factual, if presented by someone of a differing religion, or none at all?
Does information have to come from an individual who shares belief in its relavence, in order for it to be factual?
**Feel free to claim your statement if you'd like. But please spare me the persecution complex if you do. If something piques my interest, I quote it. All the regulars know that. Don't feel special.

"Is factual information less valid if presented by someone of differing beliefs?"
Only if one suffers from cognitive bias/cognitive dissonance.
