    James R., Skinwalker, and Cris are all atheists. Although I will not claim any of them are biased because of this stance, is it not peculiar that a religion sub-forum should be moderated purely by those which reject the claims of all religions? Indeed, does this not often lead the way to an unfairness in moderation?

    Accordingly, I suggest/nominate that LightGigantic or TheoryOfRelativity (if she returns) should be made a moderator of the religion sub-forum.

    The reasons for such are simple: LightGigantic is openly theistic and TheoryOfRelativity is at least theistic leaning.

    I'd also include SamCDKey, as an Islamic woman, but she has recently been promoted in other areas and so I thought it best not to include her.

    I agree. I also recommend that the domain name is changed to Godforums.com

    it isnt the atheist moderators that are the problem..the problem is that the atheist moderators promote an atmosphere of intolerance there.

    Am I?

    Regardless, what makes you think an atheist is necessarily a bad moderator?

    Why would we do that?

    it would kind of be like asking a creationist to moderate the genetics subforum, and allowing them to transform it into an "only if the bible says so" kind of place....

    you are really quiet there, though....the main problem comes from the other 2, in my experience.

    I really don't think any mod is overdoing it at all.

    seems to be the people whos arguments got owned are doing the bitching.

    Regardless of his/her religious affiliation, a moderator should be able to spot useless comments and threads and do away with them. This does not require any special training except that innate sense to discriminate (people can always complain if they wish) and the current moderation is fine.

    If religious affiliation does matter, however, I would propose the opposite and have an atheist moderate the Religion Sub-forum. LightGigantic will undoubtedly do away with "atheistic ad-hom attacks."

    Oh dont remind me.

    I had a horror moment the other day when I looked down while laughing and saw my pregnant belly bobbing up and down like a basketball.

    I'm still recovering from that horror. I shall never laugh again until after junior #2 is born

    James R.:

    Correct me if I am wrong, but you are an atheist, are you not?

    Also, it is not that Atheists are automatically bad moderators, but it seems absurd to have -three- Atheist moderators and no Theist moderators, in a forum about religion.

    At least one Theistically inclined moderator could at least give a semblance of representation for that group.

    "At least one Theistically inclined moderator could at least give a semblance of representation for that group."

    Makes perfect sense to me. Why not? Or perhaps a compromise: *Medicine*Woman* lol

    I hate to break this to you Bells, but "you might look fine as you advance but have you seen your rear- er I mean yourself retreating?"
