Some Reminders for Readers


I suppose that I should make this a monthly post, but I prefer to believe that folks here read the 'front door' on their own. But, just to make sure you know the rules, I will post the most pertinent ones here:

We respectfully request that you refrain from posting quizzes, flames, bashes, petitions, 'spams' for other Christian communities or any religious material which does not fit the simple guidelines above. Such entries will be deleted.

It is OK to criticize policies, judgement, ideas, etc. if you do so in a civilized and respectful manner. Do not attack the PERSON themselves. Bash away on your own blogs, please.

Do not post links to other people's Live Journals without their explicit permission.

Please avoid posting speculative or fearmongering articles- what they're already doing is bad enough without adding fuel (and foilhattery) to the fire. (The moderators have the ability to do research, and will do so, to determine if an article falls into this category.) Again, save stuff like that for your own blogs.

Please use discretion in posting 'act now!' articles. They must be relevant to the subject discussed.

Articles or posts which have no bearing on the subject will be deleted. We do use discretion when reading the articles- if an article does not specifically mention Dominionism, it does not mean that we will automatically remove it- but it should be part of the overall purpose of the community. For example, while an article about a Supreme Court nomination might not mention the influence of the Christian Right in the selection, it is clear that the selection of the Justice will have a lot of influence on the direction of church-state matters in the future. Such articles are permitted.

If you are posting an article from another source, please do not copy it in whole. Post an excerpt and a link to that article. This will keep us in good graces with the "Fair Use" requirements in copyright law. "Fair Use" shouldn't be more than three paragraphs.

There are people on this board from many diverse faiths. Please treat them with courtesy and respect. No bashing means no bashing, and it applies to all beliefs here- including Atheism and non-Abrahamic faiths. This is not a place to be prosetlysing or trying to convert people. Nor is this a place to debate why Catholics or Mormons are or are not True Christians. Trolls will be swiftly removed and banned from this community.

Mind your manners. Snarkiness and sarcasm are really not welcome here. If you feel the urge to start sniping or snarking, sit on your hands until the urge passes. We will show repeat offenders the door.

Joining and/or posting to this community means that you agree to adhere to the guidelines of this community.
