Thread: Please, re-open Abrahamic Religions...

    Please, re-open Abrahamic Religions...

    Namaste,

    Could you open the "Abrahamic Religions" section for posting, please?
    As I can notice, it's been closed for a long time.

    Could you open it and perhaps close it again if bad posts are written there, or the user could be banned.

    I love this Forum board as it is, so I don't want to leave it due to a lack of that section.

    What do you think about it?

    Greetings,

    That section leads to very acrimonious debates and it is best to keep it closed. If you are inclined to follow/debate issues relating to Abrahamic Religions, there are many other sites on the web that you could visit. Not sure why do you want to talk about A/Religions over here in the Hindu forum? Suggesting that Hindus be banned from their own Hindu forum if they don't behave like impotents while some people spread the gospel through A/Religion section is highly inappropriate.

    Pranam.

    Vannakkam Elizabeth: The decision to close it wasn't just some quick spontaneous decision. It was taken with much consideration, after several years of ongoing misunderstanding as to its purpose, which was to discuss Abrahamic religions as they relate to Hinduism, not to discuss them generally. Believer is correct that there are many other forums on the net where any comparative, any religion can be discussed. Religiousforums is one. Best wishes.

    Of all the forum folders on HDF the Abrahamic Religion folder was the most acerbic. Much ill-will was generated there. It was to be a place to compare and contrast the sameness and differences of sanātana dharma to the Abrahamic ways of thinking. It evolved to become a place to exercise one's disdain with Christians. This is beneath the dignity of HDF. Due to that history and the attractiveness of some members to spank others the Abrahamic Religion subject matter is not a good fit for HDF at this time.

    I propose that the HDF should adopt a strict 'no spanking' policy.

    Pranam.

    Hari Om

    Namaste to all.

    Greetings Elizabeth,

    Hope you do not choose to leave HDF over this section being omitted. If you peruse it, you will see the train wreck that it was. As one who, if signs in on sporadic basis, checks in frequently, it has been much more enjoyable to follow since this section was closed.

    At times, having the section was enjoyable as well. At times, could see an open minded seeker from one of those backgrounds or a new age type being intrigued enough to grow with the wise and gently given responses that would come from HDF family. Also, think in ways this led to some conversations that flowed naturally that for whatever reason, were not always brought forth in new to Hinduism section. Regardless, think from here, that this cherished dynamic became all too rare and think was excellent decision to close.

    Think HDF is extremely unique and offers too much to close out from due to the absence of one section, especially this section. The substantive is still found within. Perhaps Eastern Mind's suggestion of supplementing HDF with forum he recommends will help.

    Regardless, best of luck to you and take good care.

    Namaste.

    I am just wondering why the mods/Satay just doesn't delete the whole section and not leave it 'closed for posting'.

    What the eyes will not see, the heart will not grieve.

    Namaste,

    I agree that the purpose of HDF is best served by keeping
    that section closed; yet my view was, and is, that there is benefit
    in leaving it undeleted... for my own reasoning behind this,
    please read my previous post here.

    I agree that there are other forums better suited for comparative or
    interfaith types of discussions, outside of the deep and vast purview
    of Sanatana Dharma- and there is no rule here that says one cannot
    be a member of any other forums while a member of HDF

    Namaste Elizabeth,

    Please first explain in detail why you wanted the abrahamic threads reopened , so that we can understand where you are coming from.

    On a side note, second guessing here, I think barring Believer( and myself) all other posters on this thread are westerners (I could be wrong).

    To Admin

    Namaste,
    I would like to request admin not to reopen abrahamic religions forum.

    A hindu really gets hurt when he sees ' hindus worship false gods ' like threads in Abrahamic section.
    Those who wana discuss about western religions , for them religiousforums.com is the best option.

    I request admin to delete that hurtful threads.

    Thank you.
