Don't just ignore that thread because it speaks of politics and religion , but look if you can find something of relevance.
I love to learn about myths and religions.
I'm not blindly inclined towards one religion. I equally analyse and study about all religions.
Politics too. I like poking my nose in politics.
So I can't swear obedience to your proposal.
I just wish more quality thread appear than blind promotions of respective religions or political satires.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Also, I notice that many responses are only echoes of the Authors. Responses for the sake of responses only. New things are not coming out. We need more quality threads.
As the author mentioned, this is a great site. So, it must be a platform to discuss almost everything. Moreover politics and religion are not something vulgar to avoid discussing in public. it is not a good idea to ignore those thread, instead, members should see them with open mind and contribute their knowledge without hurting anyone.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.
I do accept with Neeraj regarding the quality of discussions.
" Be Good and Do Good "
I tell you why?
There was a thread posted talking about one of our respected neighbouring country, the author of the thread was tagged as the "enemy" of some section of people. It was just unnecessarily to force one's own opinion to justify the author. The thread took different turn.
The another thread was posted to talk about "selective appreciation". Again the opinion of our one gentleman has to be tried to forcefully accepted and unnecessarily the "religion" has to be dragged. Once again the thread took different direction.
The problem is not about discussing the religious matter, the actual problem is to throw our own opinion forcefully to others as if they are only the "secular" people.
Until and unless this attitude will stop, until and unless we stop justifying people with our own perception of thinking, it will continue. I would rather say that secular people should stop magnifying the non-religion matter into religion and stop dragging every matter into religion.
The thread which would have died peacefully, it was purposely been fired to show oneself a secular person.
Here I want to bring a point even is the discussion we may not be liking others way of approach. This should not be seen as the enmity of persons. It is point based. But personally, there will not be any division. SImply we are all human beings and living the way we can.
Discussions on religion becomes a controversial issue when we get personal, drag in names of leaders only to shame them etc. One should encourage a healthy discussion with relavant points.
In our spare time depending on the age and gender, the common topics discussed are life stories, achievements, politics, religion and what's happening in the lives of our neighbors or people around us. For many years religion and politics have been the common and easiest topic to be discussed. I think what attracts us to a debate or an interaction is the ways in which the discussion can shape and how people understand.
