It seems as though there's more and more questions regarding religion lately. I wouldn't care if any of them were legitimate questions, but it seems like a large percentage of them are just looking to start drama and the asker isn't looking for any answers that differ from their own opinion.
Religion is a really personal thing and should be kept to yourself. If you don't believe, keep that to yourself as well. No one likes having people shove their beliefs down their throats, no matter who you are or what you believe.
This is GirlsaskGuys, not the Huffington Post or the Daily Mail. You should be asking questions you have about the opposite gender, not trying to enlighten all the Christians on here or convert people all the Athiests.
Can we all just agree to disagree on this topic and just leave each other alone? And just strictly post questions where you actually need answers or advice?
I think you have a good point, though I wouldn't go as far as to ban question on religions as sometimes relationships are affected by that and well, a good advice might help. I do think that someone here should keep a more strict control on questions that might be offensive or plainly aggressive to people of any creed or belief.
I agree. The quantity of religious and racism questions is getting out of hand. Do we really need 4+ a day? I feel there needs to be a temporary ban on them. 4 maybe 6 weeks. It's getting out of control. Like you say a number of them are just to start arguments.
This website has been taken over from these Far right venom spewing skinny heads and unfortunately its not like before when all we had was funny question which would give everyone a smile on their faces
There are enough forums and websites on the web for them to go and propagate their ideals and terror. Which brings to my conclusion that these guys/girls have been kicked out from there and so they drop in here. There is not even a single Christian. Muslim, Jew or anybody who is trying to spread his teachings on this site But still some of them think it is alright to hate each and every person who follows a religion.
This guy @Mesonfielde along with his spooked gang started it.
No. Nobodies forcing you to read anything you don't want to. Let people with an interesting in these topics express that interest. I'd like people to stop asking stupid fucking Astrology questions but I don't actually think people should be literally stopped from doing so.
I think I completely understand what you are saying and I indeed know where you are coming from. Essentially, there is an increasing number of people posting rants (in disguise of questions) to purpose look for opinions to boost their ego or to just religion bash. It can be really annoying or just entertain to see back and read the long debates from the computer screen. These questions really are not posted to look for the opposite sex's opinion nor even different opinions in general; just as you put forward.
But unfortunately (and I mean a big but!), your whole argument, it would be more stronger if what you claimed what the website should be for is actually what it 'should' be used for. To be fair, you could say that the whole concept of the website was originally to be some sort of question and answer website for people, who want to ask questions about the opposite sex, who want answer from the opposite sex. It 'was' originally which brings me on to my next point.
GAG has always been evolving and more types of posts (not everything posted here are questions now since the website is now infested with blatant rants) are now being accepted to be posted whether it is right or not. An example of how GAG has evolved (significantly or insignificantly) is that GAG have now changed 'best answer' to 'most helpful opinion' because they felt the name holds more relevance to the way people perceive the responses to posts to more of an 'opinion' rather than directly an 'answer'. Even, 'rate-me' posts haven't always been accepted by the website but they are now are.
In short, it would be near impossible to say for sure whether or not these posts on religion should be banned or not considering the basis of what GAG primarily meant for apart from the foundation of posting posts and receiving responses to the posts. All you can do for now is report what posts you feel are deemed inappropriate or offensive or you can just ignore it.
Yeah, despite all my arguments people aren't really willing to realize I'm right. No real point to arguing about religion if people love to be oppressed.
Today really is quite the religion-fest, though. Usually it's not so extreme, I think the initial troll who said she is a Muslim and wants to convert a Christian to Muslim really riled up everyone, including myself :D
Yes it's an intimate subject, but so is sex. Yes, it's a controversial subject that often has differences that can't be bridged, but so what? You can learn something from it, even if you can't agree. If you feel someone is just infuriating you, stop reading. Move on.
Religion should be banned full stop. It is the primary cause of 99% of wars around the world just because one set of idiots believe in something different to the set of idiots next door. I know it helps some people through difficult times but causes so much more pain than it heals x
Religion is a way for people to help wrap their minds around the world/universe around us and their perceived purpose for living. Of course it's all ideas that come from flawed peeps, passed on in various forms from generation to genration, and therefore *faith* based, but whatever helps people maintain sanity in a peaceful way is all good as far as I'm concerned.
lmao i just commented on a post about this bitch that wanted to know if she should dump her bf cause he won't change from catholic to muslim... they been together a few weeks... and on top of that she's refuses to change for him... though its understandable y i still find it incredible she would expect him to change for her... needless to say i got a little heated and might have been slightly racist with my comment -.-
Here's suggestions for other questions that should be banned:
How do I give a good blowjob? Does he/she like me? Which GaG member would you most like to fUCK? Do you think I'm attractive? He looked at me, what does it mean? Am I the only one who thinks GaG should ban questions on religion?
Wrong. It states in our Bible that we are to spread the word. I will respect and not shove it down your throat, but that's what this country was founded on and for. Religion, and the freedom to practice your religion how you please. This kind of liberal, socialist, politically correct garbage thinking is why today's society is so terrible. People have faith. Get over it. People have questions on that faith. Again. Get over it. Sorry girl. Freedom of speech, first amendment of our constitution.
No. I'm not a big fan of unnecessary censorship. I think a good debate and discussion is good once in a while. BUT I do think it's ridiculous that people make up rants that are pretending to be questions. But this happens in any category, religion, political, gender, race, etc. Like guys and girls ask "Why are men/women so shallow?" Or something like "Can we agree that most if not all (insert race here) like to (insert stereotype here)? And then the question details is some rant. I'd much rather prefer if everyone grabs there cojones tightly, pony up, and learn to take critque, learn to handle and ask questions properly, learns to just realize that there are opposing views. I like the genuine questions about religion/atheism that are asked. Not dumb ones like "Why can't Christians think properly?" or "why are atheists assholes?" These are obviously not real questions and only "asked" to make a generalization. Truth is, no one can think properly, we all can be assholes. It's not limited to any particular group. Even so, I disagree with censorship. These assholes or people who abuse it are the price we have to pay for free thoughts/ideas. :/ So people just need to learn how to be adults and respect each other. FUCK. Give peace a chance for once. -_-
I disagree with you. I am against banning them because I believe that there are people who have the ability to debate on certain topics without making it personal. HOWEVER, in my opinion, questions like : "Why are "white/black/asian women/men so ugly" or anything misandrist/misogynist-related, should be banned because they don't really offer anything but drama.
Yes i think they should ban religion questions because I just answered one and it's pissing me off. All they do is judge other people's religion, we have Freedom of Religion (in US). Everyone should just ask about dating questions and what clothes they like. WHY CAN"T PEOPLE JUST STOP BEING JUDGMENTAL?
Emotional answer: Yes, I think they should. Rational answer: No, I think they shouldn't. Final answer: No, I think they shouldn't
Now, if everyone who participates in discussions about controversial topics such as religion (among others) stopped posting purely out of emotion and more out of rationality, these threads wouldn't be breeding grounds for lowbrow comment-wars, but actually for interesting and possibly enlightening discussions.
We can't control what goes through people's minds, so there's no point in banning them. In fact, its good that people are fighting for their religion through words, instead of physically. This is much better.
