    Ethics & Morality Forum Statement of Purpose

    The Ethics and Morality forum is for discussions that address conduct based on ethics (the rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions or a particular group or culture) and morality (the personal compass of what is right and wrong for an individual). Ethics are set because society says it's right while morals are set because the individual believes something is right or wrong. The discussions on ethics and morality may also address character traits.

    Discussions on many of the topics in the Ethics & Morality forum can at times become heated, so please remember to keep your emotions in check and your responses in line with our sitewide rules and the following guidelines:

    Handling Disagreements

    Members who participate in the Ethics & Morality forum are expected to treat one another with courtesy and respect at all times, ESPECIALLY when you disagree with each other. It is not a flame for a member to disagree with another member's argument or opinion on a specific topic.

    • When you disagree, address the content of the post and not the poster.
    • When you disagree with someone's position, you should post evidence and supporting statements for your position. This policy, sometimes referred to as "X means Y because of Z", must be followed especially when posting claims that are widely considered to be controversial.
    • When you disagree and you find yourself becoming frustrated and angry, step away from the computer and give yourself time to cool down.
    • Always proofread your post before hitting the "Reply" button to make sure you have responded with courtesy and respect.
    All posts are expected to be in compliance with the site rules as well as the the Guidelines for all Discussion and Debate Forums.

    Guidelines for All Discussion and Debate Forums can be reviewed here prior to posting.

    Additional Guidelines

    Off Topic Threads: Make sure that you are posting within the purpose of the forum. To prevent off topic threads, make your OP clear and ask questions or make statements that address whether something is right or wrong either by society or personal beliefs.

    Thread Tags: Thread tags are relevant keywords or terms that relate to the topic and/or content of a thread. Tags enable you to find other threads which address the same topic as tagged by other members. Tags are not for flaming or rude comments. The CF site wide rules apply to tags and tags which violate the rules may receive staff actions. Staff are able to see who posted a thread tag. While we want to encourage everyone to tag threads and contribute to the system, please think before you tag.

    General Apologetics: This is not a forum where Christians are asked to defend their faith against objections and criticism from non-believers. Non-Christian members who would like to challenge Christian theology, beliefs and practices, should start a thread in the Christian Apologetics forum.

    Homosexuality: Homosexuality may not be promoted* on CF. Several debate forums allow same-sex marriage to be discussed from a political, legal, historical, and civil rights point of view. Please check the Statement of Purpose thread for individual debate forums before posting. Homosexuality and SSM may be discussed in the Congregational forums according to each forums' guidelines in their Statement of Purpose. Homosexuality and SSM may be discussed, without promotion*, in the Struggles with Sexuality and Ask a Chaplain forums solely for the purpose of seeking support with struggles overcoming same-sex attractions, and homosexual issues. Members may not promote* homosexuality or same-sex marriage in their profiles.

    CF staff reserves the right to edit, remove, move or close any thread when deemed necessary.

    If you have issues with another member and can't work it out or are disgruntled about a staff decision, please click on the "Support" tab in the header navigation bar, or "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page, and open a new support ticket. Discussion of members or staff actions in the forums is considered disruptive and can result in additional staff actions.
