Here in the U.S.A., the growth of the more militant, doctrinaire, and intolerant forms of Christianity poses a serious longterm threat to the freedoms of religious minorities. So, it behooves religious minorities to find effective ways to respond to Christian evangelism.
This forum's main topic is figuring out good ways to respond to pesky fundies in our personal lives. We also discuss ways to respond to fundies and the religious right wing on a larger scale.
This forum's purpose is to brainstorm strategies for effective counter-evangelism. It is not a place to DO counter-evangelism, e.g. debate with fundies, as there are plenty of other forums for that purpose
. Thus, proselytizing -- by Christians or by anyone else -- is not welcome here.
Especially welcome here are people of the religious minorities whose rights are most directly threatened by the religious right wing, such as Pagans, occultists, atheists, and Satanists (of both the theistic and symbolic kinds). Very liberal Christians are welcome here too, on a case-by-case basis.
Also especially welcome are former
believers in the more intolerant forms of Christianity.
We do NOT advocate any kind of harassment or persecution of Christians. However, insofar as Christians have a First Amendment right to criticize other religions, so too do religious minorities have a right to criticize Christian doctrines.
Important: Please read the rules for this forum.
In particular, please note that the counter-evangelism
forum is NOT for general discussion about religion. Our own beliefs are off-topic here except in a self-intro or in contexts relevant to counter-evangelism, e.g. a discussion of how we would explain our beliefs to a fundy Christian.
