Well, Due to all the in-fighting here lately, I am posting this for everyone... Consider them 'guidelines'..

HOW TO DISAGREE THEOLOGICALLY [and Religious, Political, and gaming philosophical differences].

"Guidelines for Civility"

1. Respect the personhood of others while engaging their ideas.

2. Carefully represent the views of those with whom we are in disagreement.

3. Be careful in defining terms, avoiding needless use of inflammatory words.

4. Be careful in the use of generalizations; where appropriate offer specific evidence.

5. Seek to understand the experience out of which others have arrived at their views. Hear the stories of others, as we share our own.

6. Exercise care that expressions of personal offense at the differing opinion of others not be used as a means of inhibiting dialogue.

7. Be a patient listener before formulating responses.

8. Be open to change in your own position and patient with the process of change in the thinking and behavior of others.

9. Make use of facilitators and mediators where communication can be served by it.

10. Always remember that people are defined, ultimately, by their relationship with God/higher power -- not by the flaws we discover or think we discover in their views and actions.

Yeah, but if you walk a mile in someone elses shoes then you can pretty much say what you want...after all, your a mile away and you have their shoes!! :naughty:

@WolfUmbra...totally agree :agreed:

@Raiden...could you possibly make your sig pic just a bit bigger, I can still read some messages without actually scrolling down! ;)

i feel that the rules are just common sense rules of everyday life, although, with the amount of slander that has been going about these boards it is obvious that they needed to be posted.
