Just a few points I have to make.

The Religious Forum is for Religion
Notice that nowhere in the title of this forum does it say "Religion Forum". The word "religion" isn't in the forum title. People mistakenly
think of this as the religion forum, but it's for all thoughts on theology, spirituality and faith of any kind. Not just religion.
There was a time when people in this topic would post a religious thread, only to be hijacked and bombarded with athiests saying that it was nonsense.
In nearly every ATS and PTS (and many BTS) threads, people who disagree with the original post are free to come in and say so. Strongly if they wish.
As long as they follow the T&C.
However, I have noticed that christians are starting to hijack threads more frequently.
As long as it's on topic, it's not a hijack.
For example someone posted a neo-pagan thread, only to have it hijacked by christians saying "that is not the will of god" etc.
If a thread is hijacked, you can ask that it be returned to the original topic and/or report it using the complaint feature and the mods will handle
But someone saying that paganism isn't the will of God isn't a hijack. They're just giving their opinion. And people are allowed to be close minded
if they wish, too.
We don't have to like it or approve, but it's allowed...
Having said all that, I understand that your post is a rant and I hear you. I just wanted to share a few thoughts of my own on the subject.
