I fully appreciate your reservations Ketty, but the name (I suspect, because I cannot speak for Gabe) is meant as a bit of irony. It has its own dedicated faith board too.

Lorna, you are right, there was supposed to be a degree of irony in the name. Not meant to offend anyone. I also wanted a name that was quite memorable.

As you have correctly stated, there is a faith board as well (not just Christianity, but others as well!)

And Gabe was more than happy to have both a christian (me) as well as an atheist (Sarniajoy) as moderaters.
As the admin have done here, I went for moderators that would reflect the beliefs of the members (whether the be theists or not!) to give a more varied and fairer approach to discussion. I think that was one of the problems with the old NGL board - all the mods were believers. While they did a good job, sometime I think an atheist mod would have helped at times.

You blow your trumpet all you like, bird. Lol. Lorna has included an interesting Christian news section, covering stories that you may have missed. Its definitely worth a look just for that!

I'm glad you think so - thank you. Its turning into a bit of an education for me too, tracking down different sources to try and present as clear a picture as possible and track down stuff that mainstream news doesn't always present.

:oops: Sorry but a forum with that name . . . no, I can't bring myself to join.  Stupid I know; what's in a name afterall, but, for me only, it just doesn't feel right


Well its up to you. We're not sacrificing virgins and drinking goats blood or anything,


I think you'd be hard pressed to find any, if the media is to be believed.   8)  .  I'm not keen on goat's blood but a warm goat's cheese salad is always appealing.

Thank you Lou    

If ever I return to being a godless heathen, I'll be there.   :smt033
