My post on the poly-board regarding marriage/SCOTUS was deleted



After today' SCOTUS ruling on Prop 8 (same sex marriage) - an issue closely relating politics and religious beliefs - and an issue that my Church has taken considerable criticism for, I posted quotes and a link on my church's beliefs (which are mine also) on marriage - a full explanation.

It was promptly deleted.

I do not see how I violated any of the posting guidelines. While a bit long, it fully explained my views on why the Supreme Court ruling today - and other laws and rulings - are wrong. More importantly, my post explained exactly why the traditional definition of marriage must be protected.

Thank you.

It was purely religious in nature, which Chicken has declared verboten.

Also, I wasn't sure you were being serious.

At any rate, threads of that nature, whether serious or not, are not allowed.

I disagree because it was a thorough definition and explanation of marriage - in relation to the political issue of same sex marriage - from my point of view. How can I participate in the discussion without providing the basis for my arguments?

So it was not "purely religious" (which to me would be to just pick a sermon or quote scripture that is unrelated to politics.)

There are going to be political issues that involve religious issues and we should not be prevented from communicating important aspects of the political debate simply because our basis for a political viewpoint is based on religious beliefs.

I thought the point of Chicken's rule was to prevent those threads we used to have that were simply - "______________ religion sucks, etc." 10 pages of arguing the various points of a specific religions doctrine or the trashing religion in general threads. I fully understand and agree with that policy.

Thanks.

BTW, I didn't know you were a moderator. That's cool.
