Should I be flagging god answers as nonsense or what when it's a dumb time to say "god will solve things for you if you believe".

Why just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean others can't or ask questions about it... buck up and get over it!

em.. if someones asking how to get through a rough spot in thier life, shouldnt you attempt to give them actual advice other that walking blindly forward?

Its giving an answer. Just because it has to do with God doesn't mean you should be flagging it!

give me an example of a good non religious question, and a good answer that involves believing in god, if you cant find one in a week(when you cant answer or comment on this q/) feel free to email it to afleeharty@gmail.com ... I want to see a question like that, I honestly do

No jucks i am going in tomorrow with a friend! :)
Avery your seriously getting off hand. That seriously has nothing to do with giving someone an answer! Its called freedom of speach, if someone uses God for an answer to help then they can! Just because your against him does NOT mean you should start flagging them.

youre saying that potentialy flagging **NONSENSE** religious answers is bad?? I think flagging ANY nonsense answers is perfectly fine, if not encouraged, id like to see one example of a nonreligious question answered helpfully by a pray to the lord answer

my mindset is symilar to "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" I dont anti-preach unless there is a bit too much preaching going on, I certainly dont like being preached at, and I dont flag any answers, pardoning accedents, I believe you have every right to believe whatever you want, but you have abdoloutly no right to push your beliefs onto me

how is "believe in the lord" not preaching at me(im talking about these type answers in general)

God is involved in ALL OF LIFE, he created it. Non believers and believers alike though we dont understand alot of things God is ruler over all. You will see it one day.

im sorry for being misleading, and spentheart... do NOT preach at me, if you want to spread your religion so much then maybe ill join in, you should worship his noodlyness spentheart, once you get a blessing from one of his noodly appendages, there wont be anything wrong in your life, youre life will be perfect if you just have faith in his noddlyness.


btw, thats actualy a religion, my religion, the only mainstream religion, to date, with no known crimes comit in its name, pastafarianism... dont believe me? google it

Give me an example. What are you referring to? I would be willing to bet I could give you a lot dumber answer to your questions than that. why would you take offense to this type of answer? if you can't already tell you've got my interest, so I'd like to know the question you asked that got this response.

its not dissing someone when a question like "what should I do, my abusive husband just burnt me with my curling iron" is answered with "pray to the lord"
Report as
Exactly. Dumb times to say it. Or saying people personally need god because they're a heathen and other horrible things religious people say to get "the word" out. They become insensitive to other views of thinking.
Report as
Leadville, I am truly sorry, I did not mean to offend you. I actually agree with you, and believe everybody has the right to their opinion I never try to convince anybody that my way is any righter than there way. But, if you look at Averyfleeharty's comment about praying that their abusive husband will stop abusing them. I have to agree that that is not a proper solution. Praying will not stop the abuse, having him arrested will.

I respect the religious beliefs, I just dont like being preached at as if 'the lord' is going to solve every single one of my problems
Report as
Yea this is a community site why should religion be such a big part of it. I know I've seen things reffering to Quran and Torah get removed. Guess that they just want Christian views here
Report as
Amen
Report as
Really? That's not cool, everyones opinion should be allowed to stay up. If you don't like the preachy answers you can just stay away from religion questions. It's a topic often discussed here because people come looking for answers. When people have very strong, varying beleifs, there us bound to be a pot of talk about it.

Do u realize people could be flagging your answers as offensive by saying things like religion is BS? Maybe you all should think before you speak!

Not at all. Just because you don't believe that can happen doesn't mean others don't. And Why would it be considered Nonsense?

My children like to party and do drugs what do I do.

Oh just pray and god will figure out how to help.

You're saying that's not nonsense
Report as
Just because some people don't agree that prayer will help, doesn't give them the right to flag a question/answer as nonsense. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

yes you should, I think most religion is blind garbage, its the cause of the most violence in the world, as an example, those being my oppinions, my answer is probably bias, but I think other than just "believe in the lord, he'll solve all your problems" being ever so slightly sexist, it offers no advice on whatever said question is asking, if its a religious based question, I might understand, but one of my favorite quotes is "you can have whatever off-the-wall bs you want, but you have no buisness pushing it on me"

I say "live & let live". I don't really have any belief in god but at the same time I don't consider myself atheist. They're people just trying to help in their own way so let them do it, I'm sure it doesn't hurt you that much.
