    Post Attention mods please :)

    Hey mods I notice a strong monoculture developing on this site due to an imbalance of diversity of beliefs in the mod group. I am disappointed by this, and am experiencing mod abuse as a result. Provided you do not delete my thread, ban me from it to where I have no voice in Orwellian cancel culture, or perhaps care at all - I would LOVE to get a response to this. And to anyone who does not see me post again - You know why. It was not by choice but rather by radical silencing of beliefs while allowing passive abuse on this site to people who believe differently.

    This is not meant to be aggressive, but rather a calling out to see if anyone will indeed respond because I do feel this should be a community wide discussion.

    ​thanks
    I am Christian. This said, if you post to me in an effort to make a micro-aggression against my faith, values, freedoms, or against my religion; refrain. I do not tell others what to do and expect the same respect in return both on LHC and IRL. Thank you.

    I haven't seen the thread(s) in question but I think the world in general is less tolerant of diverse beliefs. That's unfortunate because I think our diversity, especially on LHC, is our strength and it's why LHC has lasted so long. I hope people will try to treat each other better despite their beliefs, both on the forum and off of the forum.

    Since you want this to be community wide... You were recently quite mean to someone completely unprovoked. While I have no insight into any other actions that have occurred and obviously cannot speak to that, I don't know what else is going on... But being mean has never been tolerated here. It has nothing to do with monoculture.

    One thing that brings me back here is the desire to communicate whilst not limiting myself to comfy safe echo chambers of mutual agreement. Disagreeing on lhc tends to feel like sticking ones head above the parapet, not sure why thatís the way it often rolls here.

    When I read something and have a different opinion, I donít see any need to come and tell someone theyíre wrong though I might flag that my experience is different if the overwhelming majority opinion seems to forget that others exist and are equally valid.

    Regarding other viewpoints, maybe there arenít enough members with alternate views to hold that space? Or that those members donít feel safe to speak out?

    I hope thereís room for me, for you, for everyone here. I would like to believe that any thread idea would hold within the broader community guidelines.

    All the best, Strands. Keep on being you. Thereís no community if weíre not being who we are and it would be sad to see more members leave.

    As Akurah stated; in the incident I believe you're referencing, someone made a rather logical and neutral statement and you lashed out and accused them of attacking your religion. No one had said anything at all about your religion prior to that. You decided that was what you wanted to make it about.

    Outside of that and for general discussion, I see more Christian members post about being Christian, place it in their signatures, on their profiles, and refer to that frequently in their postings. I haven't seen atheists do the same, nor people who are Jewish, Muslim, or any other religion. I don't think it's your religion that's the problem here.

    Blackgothicdoll words it exactly like I had in mind.
    No one attacked your religion, but still you came at people saying they were "not going to be saved".
    Please respect all religions, not just your own.
    The mods reactions were based on your behavior in your replies, not your religion.

    LHC has long had a diverse and worldwide membership that naturally reflects different opinions and belief systems. There are lots of Christians, and also lots of non-Christians. Your religion is immaterial until you use it to berate someone for *checks notes* expressing consideration for you. That's not a micro-aggression against your religion.

    It's so funny how the one's that claim to be the most Christian always act the least Christian in every way possible. lol It's a strange phenomena to witness and unfortunately very common. Please get well soon.

    In most cases, people who are truly strong and content in their beliefs generally keep it to themselves. Maybe something for you to think about.

    Funny how you don't see Satanists calling people out for being intolerant.
