    Arrow **Updated 30 October 2007** - Please read before posting: Religious Texts Forum Rules

    .

    The Global LitNet Discussion Forum Rules apply here, including . . .

    "If you are going to refer to or use content from other sites or entities" . . . . From Copyright.gov ; “Under the fair use doctrine . . . .”

    as well as the following:

    .

    A: Discussion of any and all faiths and spiritualities, and religious and or sacred texts is encouraged here, but please remember to respect the beliefs of others.
    Respect the fact that someone might not agree with you.
    Respect the fact that there are others with different points of view.
    Respect the fact that people are entitled to post their opinion as long as it is done in a way that is not inflammatory or disrespectful to others.
    Respect the fact that there are members here representing myriad faiths, religions and spiritualities.

    .

    B: These forums are not here for preaching, or attempts to convert, nor promote other religiously affiliated websites.

    .

    C: The Religious Texts area of the forums is heavily moderated due to the unfortunate fact that there are so many discussions that escalate to ad hominem, insults, baiting, trolling, harassing, and or flaming. If you do not know the meaning of these terms please look them up first before posting here. It is not the job of the Moderators to explain them or the rules to you.

    .

    D: If you are going to post to this part of the forums, you must be willing to subject yourself to other members' points of views and opinions, which may not agree with yours. You must understand the concept of discussing ideas, *not* each other.

    .

    E: This area was initially created for discussing specific religious texts. Any other general topic threads posted relating to religion or spirituality will be subject to Admin's or the Moderator's approval.

    .

    F: ---> *** Admin and the Moderators reserve the right to edit, delete, close, and/or remove threads or posts, not always with warning.*** <---

    .

    G: ---> ***Any member failing to follow these rules--with or without warning--may be issued a Time Out, Infraction Points, and or lose their ability to post in and view this area of the forums. Any member who persists in ignoring the rules may be banned entirely from The Literature Network's discussion forums.*** <---

    A quick reminder of the rules for those who have failed to familiarise themselves with them:

    And my personal favorites:
