You are correct! I feel, however, that If I’m not allowed to voice my opinion
on something as little as my faith, then there shouldn’t be any reason to stick
around on this forum.


As someone who has just had her entire world upended because of other people's
faith, I can assure you that you expressing (ie shoving down other's throats)
your opinion on your faith is NOT A LITTLE THING. It is offensive and outright
vulgar.

Further, if your opinion's on your faith was such a little thing, you wouldn't
be proselytizing in a completely inappropriate place.

Thank you for speaking up. I've been searching and searching for the words
to say the same thing.

I, too, am offended and wish I didn't have to see such symbols here where
they don't belong.

Well said!


  
This does not bother me:

primarily because the various ways that other adults choose to make a life together
up has absolutely no effect on my life or my freedoms. There are other topics,
verboten in the forum, that bother me a great deal because they very much affect
my life, my family's lives and our freedoms.

  FYI At the bottom of every page there is a link to the terms of service (see

16.8 prohibits religious and/or political discussion.

As long as you still have forum privileges, you are welcome to continue participating
in the discussion forum. Having a message cancelled by the forum moderators does
not imply that you are banned.

As a side note, attitudes towards religion are different in different parts of
the world. What might be considered okay in Tennessee might not be considered
okay in France and vice versa.

That is a good point. See, i’m used to living in the US where we have (partial)
freedom of speech. I shouldn’t have assumed. I also did not know where the terns
were before, And I honestly did look for it to read through before I posted such
a thread. After I while I just stopped looking. Wish that was bigger. Thanks
man!

  It's not so much a matter of freedom of speech as it is cultural expectations.
In the U.S., people talk about religion freely. In Western Europe, religion is
considered more of a private matter, not fit for an internet discussion forum.

I disagree with this. In Western Europe, it is perfectly acceptable to discuss
religion on an internet discussion forum, if that forum is for discussion of
religion. It is not that discussing it is inappropriate on the internet, but
that it is inappropriate to discuss it in inappropriate places (whether on the
internet or elsewhere).

I imagine most religious forums would not be interested in a discussion about
whether Classic Castle is better than Classic Pirates, Classic Space an Bionicle,
which team is the best football team (whether by football you mean soccer, Aussie
rules, ... ) in the world, whether Star Wars is better than Star Trek and Battlestar
Galactica, and whether coffee is better than tea. All are likely to cause off-topic
arguments and are better discussed elsewhere.

  LEGO marketplace forum is meant for LEGO and maybe some pizza.

And also an advacato plant which might just make it big one day. (I don’t know
how to spell it and autocorrect didn’t help)

Erikk

I haven't had anything rubbed in my face this month. The way I understand
it, this month is primarily about being free to choose who we wish to love and
partner with. It's about the freedom to do that without authoritarian intrusion
and without the fear of being targeted for violence.

Agreed. I was responding to earlier comments claiming religion should not be
discussed in public. It absolutely can/should—just not on BrickLink.

Like they say their is a time and place for everything but I do agree that a
LEGO marketplace forum is meant for LEGO and maybe some pizza. But don’t be discouraged
there’s always a learning curve with everything. Perhaps you should do a 4 strike
game instead of a 3 strike game before calling it a day . It is very sad to
hear you received emails like that but it does not represent the bricklink LEGO
community in any major way.

  This was fun. Even though I don't know how to post the picture here.

I got "1x1 brick with two knobs. You're a free agent. No one knows what scheme

Wow! That is even more accurate than the fortune cookie I cracked open last night!
I feel like I should start wearing dark glasses and a black beret.

The real question is: are the studs adjacent, or opposite?
