I must say I'm very disappointed in your decision to close the Geekdom and Religion thread just as it got started. As you yourself admitted, the thread did not technically violate the rules. Very close is not the same thing. In my opinion, geekdom is about not being afraid to discuss our differences as well as our similarities. Open, honest discussion is the key for everyone to get along. The post was not abusive or condemning to others who might believe differently. It was a plea for acceptance and you squashed it with unnecessary censorship. Personally I believe most of the geeks on these forums are mature enough to handle a discussion about our differences as well as our similarities. As it stands, you are the one looking judgemental and irrational here. Christians should not feel unwelcome to the forums any more than Buddhists, Muslims, Pagans, or any others of faith. You have now made them feel this way without cause.
