CODE OF CONDUCT
- Code of Conduct: Our forum community is meant to be a supportive community where everyone is welcome to ask sincere questions and discuss issues. Until now, Christians, Democrats and Progressives simply against HATE in America have not had a community of their own – we are supplying that and have a responsibility to keep it safe for them/you. However, we also wish for ANYONE (of any party preference, faith belief, sexual orientation, race, creed, etc.) to feel welcomed, loved and safe here – that is the true meaning of a “Christian” community.
- We understand many of the issues discussed here can easily incite controversy. While this is expected and accepted to an extent, we have guidelines in place to keep our community one of peace, compassion, mercy and showing forth a true example of God’s love to all. We want everyone to enjoy a safe and respectful community/environment, with discourse free from attack and exhibiting the attributes of divine love (1 Cor 13). Anyone not following these guidelines or reported multiple times by members for violations will be blocked from the forum.
- By joining us, you are agreeing to the following:

> I will express my disagreements with other members’ ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matt 5:22)
> I will not exaggerate others’ beliefs, bully, belittle nor make offensive personal statements based on labels, categories, faith, denominations, race, ethnicity, party-preference or stereotypes (Eph 4:29)

> “Trolling” (def: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet) is not acceptable in our community and excessive, daily abuse of trolling will result in banning from our group (Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.)
