These types of discussions tend to quickly escalate into heated arguments, as very few people like having their core beliefs challenged and can be quite sensitive.
Debating religion on a gun forum is not going to change anyone's viewpoint or convert them to your way of thinking. Since they have not historically contributed anything positive to the environment here, they will no longer be allowed.
The following has been added to the forum rules:
• Any discussions directly relating to or debating religious topics are prohibited. These types of discussions have a track record of quickly becoming contentious and rarely contribute anything positive to this board. Your religious beliefs and opinions are your own, and they should stay that way here.
In accordance with the Term of Service, this rule will be retroactively enforced and discussions in violation will be removed.
This topic is locked because this decision is not open for debate.
Thank you for your cooperation.
