A little reading comprehension test here.  "If a believer in God A wants to discuss God B" is a conditional clause. "[Then] hesh should do so on an appropriate board." is the subordinate clause to the conditional.  If the conditional is false then the subordinate clause does not apply. 


But as long as a believer in God A or God B or C or D thru Z'' has a board to discuss any of the Gods any such discussion is disruptive on this board since atheists don't believe in God A thru Z''.  Are all such discussions and there are Z'' factorial  of them off limits on this board? 


For extra credit:  If a non-believer in all Gods A thru Z'' wants or needs to discuss God X  and God X has a discussion board, which two boards are appropriate for a discussion of God X?



basically the prejudice is against the person.


atheists are entitled to slam Jesus (the preferred target of prejudice)


and atheists can begin discussion of any gods they like,


but theists are not allowed to initiate discussion of any set which isn't theirs.



that makes a whole hell of a lot of sense.

That pretty much means I got it right. You're just trolling this forum to start fights and be nasty to Atheists. If you post appropriately in the appropriate forum, your posts won't get deleted.

Well, that's an answer of sorts. But is it an honest one? Does it even make sense? Why would theists enter a forum about atheism to discuss gods other than their own? They might well be concerned to defend the existence of their own gods, but they can have no occasion either to defend or attack someone else's.

show me where in the guidelines states atheists may slam any theology they like, but theists must restrict their discussion to their theology only.


so not knowing the prejudice guidelines meant inadvertently breaking them.

It's a matter of common sense. Atheists may slam any theology they like because they do not believe in any theology. A theist entering this forum may slam atheism or defend his own theology, but why would he either slam or defend someone else's theology? What could conceivably motivate him to do that here? An alien theology is not his to defend, and slamming is obviously a task to be undertaken in the forum devoted to the obnoxious theology. Discuss Atheism is not the place for rival theologies to quarrel with one another.


I'm not at all satisfied with your explanation. Why did you really start this thread?

I am not satisfied either. You're a crashing bore, AKA_me. That's your biggest sin.

He does tend to drag things out inordinately. We should have been able to settle this whole business in ten posts. Giving direct answers to direct questions speeds up a discussion wonderfully.

I still haven't got an answer about why failing to believe in God or Santa Claus is a positive belief from AKA_me.

You should start by reading the TOC and ROC. If you believe they are prejudice, take that up with the owner or his representatives. Don't waste our time with it.
