While I'm not completely new to Freerepublic, I am kinda new to posting ideas, I wish to ask a question....
Are posted stories only to be responded to by people who agree 100%?
I personally like to be challenged about my spiritual, political, or other beliefs. Defending what I believe helps me to have a better understanding of what it is that I believe.
One of the reasons I like Freerepublic is the ( generally ) well educated positions that get posted. Since my spiritual beliefs are what I find to be most important, I like to peruse the RELIGION topics. Since I am a non catholic, and have problems with catholic doctrine vs. scripture, I like to debate to learn more.
However...I have noticed, as of late, that some catholic posters don't want outside comments. Unless, this RELIGION section is just for Catholic posters, then I think that opposing views should be welcomed.
Maybe there could be a tag line added to posts that say something like, "for Catholic discussion only", or "Open for disscussion". Well, that's my two cents.
