Thread: Open up Abrahamic Religions Forum

  1. #11

    Re: Open up Abrahamic Religions Forum

    Namaste,

    I myself have read the subheading for the Abrahamic section,
    contrasted that with the majority of threads started in it since I
    have joined HDF, and sometimes shaken my head at how far apart
    these two things are- so, on the one hand, I understand well where
    satay's thinking is coming from; on the other hand, the ability for
    HDF members to discuss issues and ideas related to the Abrahamic
    world should not in my view be summarily hobbled or removed due to
    the high percentage of frustration, disgust or rancor expressed in
    posts.

    I would ask that, whatever the decision regarding the future of
    an Abrahamic section, that the temptation to "start afresh" be
    considered, without finding it necessary to delete everything..
    while many of the words there are not particularly uplifting, lofty,
    or likely to elicit glowing praise from Abrahamics- they are the
    honest thoughts and feelings of HDF members, and while vitriol and
    bile do not need to be nurtured or made comfortable anywhere,
    I feel the truth is most important in the larger picture.

    Many people outside of Sanatana Dharma have a tendency to paint
    us as being either meekly placid navel-gazers, or as shrill and primitive
    reactionaries... the only way to combat these broad brushes is
    by steadfastly refusing to be anything less than the very real and
    complex human beings that we are, "warts and all"..

    I have probably used too many words to convey a simple idea,
    so please forgive any lack of concision or clarity- but hopefully
    many of you are used to my long-windedness, and can make some
    sense out of it- others have already brought good points to this
    already, so once again I can only say...

    I think it's a good move. Considering this is place for Sanatana dharma mainly it's better to delete that sections altogether as most of the time someone or other will post a slandering article or act against Hindus and we end up arguing and pointing fingers.

    I think Abrahamic forums should be open.

    Opening up the Abrahamic Forum is like saying, please place a sharp stone inside my shoe and tell me I must walk 5 kilometers to the market.

    Vannakkam: But Yajvan, those stones aren't sharp, they're rounded. Ya'd think a guy could at least match his picture with the words...

    You missed the stones that came from the front of the shoe.

    I would request satay to delete the abrahamic cult section and keep this forum free from abrahamic scum. I'm posting this in the light of events happened against north eastern people in B'lore. abrahamic cults are menace to human happiness and joy.

    That would be equivalent to burying the head in the sand.

    I'd of course be happy to support whatever Satay does with this forum. I would like to point out, though, that many of us here in America have to deal with Christians on a daily basis, and it helps to have somewhere to discuss the problems that Christians pose to American Hindus and Hinduism in general. I don't know if this would involve repurposing the forum, deleting certain threads, or whatever. But it does help to have somewhere to discuss these things with other Indian/Hindu Americans.
