Please keep in mind that there are several other places across ATS and its sister sites where religion can be discussed.
Religion in Government Issues
Faith, Spirituality & Theology
There is also a
forum, but keep in mind that one can make a distinction between religion
There is also the
forum. It would be appropriate to discuss, say, Phalangism or the
Sacredotal State in that forum, or any Teleocratic/Theocratic governments/parties there.
There are a number of other forums where religion of course can come up, as long as its relevant to the domain of the forum.
This forum is specificially for conspiracies in religion.
When starting a post in it, make the conspiracy specific and explicit. Name the conspiracy, talk about its motives, its effects, its methods. Don't
make the conspiracy merely implicit.
So the RCC protecting child-molesting priests is an accetpable topic.
A debate about whether or not, say, jesus existed, is not acceptable, unless the first post and ensuing discussion consider the conspiracy specific
aspects of it. So you are encouraged
to talk about how, say, the early church fathers excised Mary Magdelene from the christians texts and
to supress groups that supported her divinity thru torture, war, and labels of excommunication and heresy, but you need
make it about the conspiracy. In such a case, a discussion about matriarchal versus patriarchal worship systems, or a machoistic or feminisitic
discussion itself are not acceptable and the threads will be moved to their proper forum.
On moving threads, any
thread is a fair game. I and most others try to only move active and new threads. But be aware, any thread can get
moved, even if the discussion wanders out from conspiracy land to religious discussion land.
Also, please do not start a post figuring that its not reall about a conspiracy, but will get moved anyway. Those are just going to be trashed.
