Well with the majority of atheists on this forum I doubt if this is going anywhere. I agree for a separate section and moderation on complaints as normal. But then the mod must use common sense and not be biased!

create sub forum with fair unbias moderation.

so the moderator can not be religious nor atheist.

ie. a bot :D

Banning religious discussions would be a bit heavy-handed. A separate section where those who care can take their discussions sounds like a much better idea.

Hey can I volunteer to moderate it :), I am sure NewsFlash would agree that I am unbiased :p

Seriously I don't think it is possible to ban it outright and a subforum would be the best idea. I would vote for careful moderation. It is a very very touchy subject.

Yeah I'm with Debbie. Create a sub-forum and if it gets out control (Crusades, Jihads, Inquisitions, referances to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" etc.) we can dump the lot.

Agreed! But moderation? :D Will need a strong character for that tho! Only a bot like IC :D will do.

A sub forum, but keep it in off topic.

What does 'heavy moderation' mean anyway. :rolleyes: If you're scared of offending people, rather scrap the whole thing. What's the point in having a debate when someone else decides what can be said. There are plenty of other forums to discuss religion anyway...
