I agree that religion can not be kept out of this forum. It will be nearly impossible to debate gay issues without bringing up religion, and frankly it wouldn't be fair - it would be like the catholic church covering up their problems with pedophilia by silencing everyone, they don't want anyone to talk about it, and it gives them power to continue the abuse. They will keep raping alter boys and keep bashing gays if we refuse to address these issues. Most ideals against gays have a core foundation that stem from religion. Religion is a threat to gays. Note that I did not say *all* religion, but those religions that do bash gays are responsible for much of the discrimination, if not most of it.
I do agree with the webmaster's posts and ideals on the topic, but I think the forum will be nearly useless without the ability to bring up religion.
