LOL. Even stranger, and really kind of sad, is that you can't use the word, "Gay". If you do, it will be redacted. You can say Homosexual all you want, but if you mention Gay Marriage, within a day it will be changed to (*) Marriage. I haven't done it yet, but I'm gonna work the word 'queer' into a post, just to see if it stays. Wanna take bets?
Amazing. This is why I can't deal with this crap, though. If they're just gonna delete all atheist posts, I figure it's better to just never go there, I'd be too frustrated.

But geez, you'd think they could talk about hell. I was almost surprised by the idiocy of "(*) marriage." ("Almost surprised," because there is really no limits to the stupidity and censorship of these places.)

RE: Joining a Christian Forum
I live in the middle of a Christian forum, so I don't want to seek one out online. All I have to do is walk out my door, go to work, go to, well, anywhere in Mississippi. I got Christians everywhere including my bf, so I am overflowing with it. I'm not interested in converting them and am glad when they leave me alone about religion. I actively try NOT to discuss or debate religion with them because I have to live and work here and most of my friends are at least nominal Christians. Thankfully we have other interests in common.
