+1 There are many church/state issues that can be discussed. Some examples are school voucher programs, faith based initiatives, attempts to teach creationism in public school science classes, the Virginia bill to allow school sponsored prayer in public schools, and POTUS speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast which is run by the Family (aka. the Fellowship) a secretive organization that supports the proposed "Kill the Gays" bill in Uganda as well as runs the C St. House in DC that provides low rent housing to some Christian Members of Congress.

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- General Smedley Butler: War is a Racket (1935)

"War is mankind's most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberate provocation is a black crime against all men. Though you follow the trade of the warrior, you do so in the spirit of Washington — not of Genghis Khan. For Americans, only threat to our way of life justifies resort to conflict." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower: Graduation Exercises at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, USA at 3 June 1947

+1 TPaine

Ditto to both you and Dave.


And thanks Dave for bringing this to our attention.

My vote is to keep this forum open.

The NPB is a once-a-year event, so it will only rear its ugly head that often.


 


Meh.

Sorry I've been so quiet/absent. I started a writing project, which has eaten my brain.


 


Give me a day or two and I'll see if I can come up with a coherent topic for a thread. Or maybe I'll invite some friends over here to do it.

Here's some questions:


Is this decision to close inactive groups a done deal (i.e. has it already taken place)?


If not, where is the report of this "move at BN to shut down inactive forums"?


Is "shutting them down" the same as taking them offline entirely (perhaps in order to free up storage/capacity for new forums?)


Or, will we still be able to view older but now-closed forums?


How is the decision made, or what criteria need to be met for forums to be closed? (Background here: Rod Dreher's old blogs, though "closed" to further comboxing, are still readable here, yet the old Mormon blog [sorry, can't remember its name] is not. Why one and not the other?)


Should we be typing "fora" instead of "forums"?


;{O)

1) no-not a done deal-just gossip among hosts-one of many "streamlining suggestions"


2) behind closed doors in host only orbums-I prolly was in violation for mentioning it


3 & 4) the proposal was to lock untrafficked forums-presumably one could still view


5) don't know


6) forums
