Default Religious Threads

For the future I think that any thread about religion should either be closed immediately or moved to Rants. There has yet to be a civilized discussion about the topic without a thread completely falling apart. Usually the threads all go in the same direction and just make everyone look immature. Could this be taken into consideration? Thanks.

Default Re: Religious Threads

Religious threads already get the zero tolerance treatment as far as I've seen.

There is another solution though. Where you see the thread title, hover your cursor over it and then don't click it.

Default Re: Religious Threads

Yeah. That's an amazing point. In fact, why even have a suggestion section? We should just ignore everything and hope that it goes away. In fact, I'll make a Chris Benoit thread and if it gets closed, I'll just complain that people shouldn't have clicked on it.

Default Re: Religious Threads

I'm for not allowing to create religion threads and closing it immediately so I support the OP and I hope the WF staff takes it into consideration

@Anark
By this logic it can also be allowed to create racist, homophobic and xenophobic threads. Who is offended or doesn't like it should not click on it

Default Re: Religious Threads

I'd rather see people who cant debate civilly receive warnings/infractions/bans as opposed to just giving in and moving threads to the rants. People cant discuss news articles civilly either, should those be moved as well?

Its going to be slim pickings in the Anything section.

Well the thread about the British soldier a few days ago turned into a disaster mainly because of 2 or 3 people.

Default Re: Religious Threads

Good points all, but it's a subject that many people like to wade in on, hence why there is always a thread popping up. Why not keep a thread for all religious talk and let people get on with it.

I suppose that means new threads being merged with it which is probably not far away from OP's suggestion. I avoid most religious threads tbh, but I do get involved every now and then (like today). Doesn't really bother me when they get closed though.

Default Re: Religious Threads

Why move those threads to rants? So people can be as douchey as they can be and not have a civilized discussion? I'd rather they stay in the anything section so people don't make it even worse as it sometimes turns out to be.

I don't even know why any of you are complaining. If you don't want to discuss anything about religion then don't simple as that.There are plenty of threads in the anything section I avoid because they have people discussing shit I don't want to discuss that doesn't mean I get to bitch about those threads and want them to get closed.

This is coming from the person who is notable for making any thread into a rant about religion and is probably the most immature about discussing it.

Why not instead of moving/closing the thread the mods just remove the people who aren't being civil. unless everybody is being a ass, then yeah close it.
