I really did not want to do this but in the interests of promoting fair discussion where any side of the argument can be presented well, leaving anyone else with clarity as to how to respond, always with respect, I have put a few points below that I would ask anyone here to keep in mind with any comments you bring.
Please email me on email@example.com if there are issues with any of these.
- Always show respect to the people you are talking to, even if you strongly feel there are problems with what someone stands for never blame it on that person and disrespect them for what they hold to be sacred. By all means challenge but with respect to the fact that you are speaking to a person.
- Don’t make big statements without backing them up, if you think Joseph Smith was a fraud, if you think the bible is corrupted or even if you think Jesus was a spaceman that’s all fine, just tell us why and not just throw out big statements to fire up a discussion or person. If you are just expressing an opinion that you would struggle to back up, this is fine just say so.
- When we are discussing on here I want to hear what you think, not just what some leader has said, so by all means use quotes and links to illustrate why you think something, but dont just respond to questions with links or quotes.
There may be one or two more but I think that pretty much covers one or two of the issues I have seen, however most of all I would say please enjoy this blog, please comment, and please challenge anything I or anyone else says that you take issue with. This blog is all about open discussion in love, and not any one person dictating things without openness to responses.
