What percentage of FreeRepublic Religious posts have more than 3 responses? (I bet that this will not be one of them.)

Just curious. A graph would be helpful from someone more capable and less lazy than myself.

Maybe you could do a seach using religion as a key word. Then you could look at those threads and perhaps get an idea. Is there a special reason you are asking?

Out of the last 50 threads posted in the religion forum, some of which are still pretty new, at least 39 have reached more than 3 responses, with the highest reaching 124. If this is a large enough sample to be representative, then about 80% or more of religion threads reach more than 3 responses.

Dang...I came up with 76.1877% but then again I wasn’t ever very good at math.

Woo hoo...now you have more than 3 responses! Unless you meant you wanted three from three different posters.

I guess that depends on what you call a ‘religious post’. I recollect a post last weekend that had to with a ‘homosexual agenda’ issue and it had well over a hundred last time I looked.

What is your purpose?

What do you plan to do with the info?

Therefore what?

I think a more useful criteria would be, what percentage go more than 50 posts; 75 posts; 100 posts; 150 posts. & 200 posts of what topics.

I believe the “Reformation Day” thread is over 7,500 replies and still going strong.

RC’s tend to post a lot of . . . pontificating blather with very long initial article posts. Some of their stalwarts may mutually ooooo and aaahhhhh for several posts but usually such threads die an early death.

Proddys can sometimes post just as long initial posts . . . and similar things happen unless there’s something somewhat controversial or movingly touching or unusually interesting about the topic . . . then it can go for several hundred.

REPLACEMENTARIANS and us Dispys can go around and around for many hundreds of posts as can the RC’s vs Proddys.

Seemingly, it takes conflict to be dramatically interesting.

probably equally useful, what percentage of the responses are identical, thread to thread. If you’ve seen one pro or anti Mormon thread, you’ve seen them all.

"And the point of your question is?"

Religious posts on a conservative website just rub me wrong, conservatism is conservatism, religion is religion. Each certainly deserves it's own venue. Are religious sites taken over by conservatives, or is only the opposite that occurs?

A better question would be: What percentage of religion posts don’t start with a 100,000 word introduction/explanation/condemnation copied from another site of a topic already covered dozens of time on FR that ends up with FreeRepublicans saying nasty garbage to each other for hundreds of posts?

Depends on the type. Those things Vision posts every morning from Joel Olsteen have few, if any, responses becuase they are “protected”. That means there is nothing to say. I have no respect for Olsteen so I just ignore them.

OTOH, most of the religious threads I see are VERY popular, when people are allowed free speech.

Hot conservative babes - only with pics - generally run pretty high. Hot leftist babes...not so much.

That said would a New Age/Novus Magificat thread be Religion? I kinda liked Constance Demby (sp?) back in the day, but I never figured her out. Wasn't worth the effort to me.

I'd like to know what percentage of religious threads ultimately devolve into UFOs and ET Squared.

ET Squared, for the unaware, is the involvement of Extra Terrestrials in End Times prophecy. For more on ET Squared, check out this religious post that got more than 60 replies, even though it was mistakenly not posted in the Religious Forum:

Farrakhan's Nation of Islam to Argue UFOs Are Real

Wasn’t she delivered?

Didn’t she become an authentic Christian?

Since I ignore religious threads like the plague unless they are actually part of a news story, I wouldn't know.
I understand that there is a religion forum here; Too bad its use is not universal.

Don't know. Originally I thought it was New Age garbage, even though I enjoyed the music. Now it seems she has been delivered and the works is not a mockery of The Magificat but an "expansion" (my word) of it.

FWIW I am not a Catholic so I have very little knowledge of the subject.

Still enjoy the music though.
