Re: Religious Discussions on Drummerworld
I have noted of late that Christianity is being spoken about alot in drumming circles. Modern Drummer is beginning to look like the Christian science monitor. There is even a photo of Thomas Pridgen pointing to religious graffiti. I have no idea why this is happening. I feel the site does not need it. But I see people mentioning their god in posts that have nothing to do with the opening topic. Personally I feel that this is arrogance on the part of the poster who imposes his or her beliefs on others. And it is insulting to those who did not ask for it and who do not share the same beliefs.
Something I have never done here is speak about religion. And I'm a minister. But I wont impose it upon anyone. It does not belong.
(By the way, I don't practice.)
I feel if religious threads are not allowed, the same should be applied to people imposing religious beliefs in individual posts. But how to police it?
