Default "OFFICIAL RULES" Topics on politics and religion are banned.

I hate to be a downer and impose new rules but I just don't see any other way around this one. For some reason grown adults can not discuss topics on religion and politics w/out things becoming heated and turning ugly. I've seen it over and over again. Frankly I don't see a need for discussing things of that nature here anyway. This a guitar and music related community. If you want to discuss things of this nature then go find a forum of your fav denomination and mount away on your soap boxes. We don't need heat like that creating hard feelings among members here.

Agreed. We should leave it alone. Many "Good" people here get offended when reality comes a knockin.

For the record, my one and only higher power is my guitar.

That comment itself will offend some I'm sure.

And if it does, who cares?

I completely agree, Furious. This is a guitar forum, not a Protestant convention.

Well, I should probably apologize. I just wanted to know what some advise would be from the guys for dealing with my friend. Never meant to insight a riot and have it turn into a religious argument

Sorry

It probably is best to put it this way, faith based stuff always gets touchy.

Religion and politics always will get heated..

There is currently trouble on 3 music related forums that post on involving Religion and/or politics. This is the last forum I expected to get caught up in these debates.

Best to keep it music related.

My part on the other thread is not to be overlooked and I offer apology for ever drawing that challenge. Some responses are what folks should do, and my feedback-to-post was not over the edge flaming from my POV. My bad guys. Living somewhat not the best of times should not equal me stompin through here like an ass.

Sorry, this truly is NOT the place to do this and I will not again disrespect ShredGuitars in my future posts.

Sorry guys.

Seems like Rockstringbender and I are both pretty quick to say the first thing that comes to mind.

Dude, why do we keep getting these stickys?!?

Yeah, and never act like this in real life, just in cyber freaking space????????

Don't know bro... my trip is the one I need to navigate and this particular incident reminds me of an old bandmate that called cratchety old fucks that stir shit up "Dicks with Ears" : current drummer uses a phrase "CheezeDick" cuz it's the same guy being described but the drummer don't GAF what he does as long as he does it over there >>>>>>>>

I think I should move away from that angle of banter and try to connect with my fellow travelers in another way
