    I'm really getting sick and tired of GT becoming increasingly intolerant of Christians.

    Religious Issues is little more than a place that atheists can come and freely insult believers.

    I enjoy a little debate now and then, but the constant insults in not only the Lounge, but here in RI are tiresome.

    What are some good forums where Christians can interact and discuss without atheist trolls popping up?

    Doesn't exist.
    I'm more than willing to discuss Christian based arguments. (Free Will vs Determinism, Speaking in tongues, ect.)

    The largest one, and the one with the most informed posters, is at the Catholic.com website.

    Unfortunately, I am not Catholic (though I do root for Notre Dame)...:whistling:

    christianforums.com -- participation in most forums requires acceptance of the Nicene Creed (as I recall), and they're pretty quick to ban violators.

    Hey, Vart, 'Lift up your head and rejoice!' (You already know, 'Why' - Right!) It you think things are bad now, just wait awhile. It's going to get a whole lot worse. ;)

    :shocked: Really! That's NOT the hope of any Christian I know.

    (Or are you talking about the American economy? If you are, according to the Wall Street analysts, it's going to take this nation the better part of the next 50 years to climb back up out of the hole.)

    We have an ignore list for that.....easy fix.
    What I want to know is why atheists keep insisting that Atheism is NOT a religion but keep posting their drivel in the RELIGIOUS ISSUES forum.

    I agree use the ignore list. That will leave you with Atheists able to debate without resulting to insults if there are any.

    I read a few of the postings there. It's really depressing. Guilt, guilt, guilt.

    Don't worry about it or them. They are no different than folks who vandalize a church building. They spew the equivalent of what is commonly written on toilet stall walls. Let them blow. They have much in common with the hand dryer in a service station rest room.

    Is it your belief that a "Christians only" forum would all brotherhood and love? Judging from the interactions between Christians of various stripes I've observed here over the years, I tend to think otherwise.

    BTW, as for insults, I wish I had a buck for every time some believer stated or implied that atheists are incapable of behaving morally or ethically. That's an insult.

    Because even though atheism isn't a religion, RELIGIOUS ISSUES, such as the insistence that creationism be taught as science, affect atheists.

    And what about you? It's OK when you do it because you're doing in the name of a loving forgiving God. Do you ever wonder why people don't have much use for Christians.
