    Catholics are not allowed to extensively debate Protestants on this website wherever we want. There are places on this website for debate. Protestants have their safe havens, and this is supposed to be ours.

    Members note, votes cast by those who are not covered by the OBOB SOP, such as people who come into the thread on this and break the SOP, will be deleted from the Poll. If you are looking at the totals remember that.

    Re-opening this. Any votes by non-OBOB members will not be counted. Take note of what happened. Even in this poll it had to be closed and it took some time to work the report and get it re-opened. That was happening all the time when the posts showed up in the new area.

    our Church is meant to be evangelical
    this move just makes us looked more closed off

    Stuff still shows up in most replies, but that does not attract the people who debate as much as new posts. It is not very evangelical if threads get shut because people debate visitors who do not know they are in OBOB and saying anti-Catholic things. Closed threads are not evangelical. People who come here knowing they are coming to search for Catholicism come in respectful. But when they do not know where they are and post like it is GT...it causes issues.

    OBOB is meant to be a safe haven. Having the post show up in new posts complicate that. Some threads, if they go off the rails will get closed where they otherwise would not.

    I understand opening the forum up causes problems sometimes. Closing it off or making it tough to find just sounds cowardly to me.

    If they break the safe haven rule its an issue.

    I think if people here would just not engage them in debate and simply tell them they are in the Catholic forum it will pretty much correct itself. There will be nothing to close down. If they persist then do not engage them and hit report. If we stick to that it should not be much of a problem imo.

    Agreed. That is the condition for yes. No matter what that has to happen. But I am not sure that will happen

    We need to do a bit of introspection here in OBOB. We, ourselves, are often the problem.

    are you perhaps confusing the mission of the Church with the service of the mass?

    In the first we go out into the world, in the second the world, attracted by the truth, comes in to us
    not to debate what is true but to learn by it.

    it's basically a difference in advertizing.
    featuring the new posts of OBOB on the main page of the forum is almost like putting a billboard up next to a busy highway.
    the only difference is that the billboard has driving directions so you know where you will wind up.

    with the software the site has, putting the latest posts from OBOB on the main site is more like following a scavenger hunt;
    it looks interesting, but there's no telling where you will wind up.:p

    If someone comes in and gets a warning or is told they can not debate.... That is not evangelization. That is just strife and busy work for people to clean up things that should not happen.

    Debating them in OBOB is not on the table. So not sure how it is evangelizing. If yes wins and people do not follow what is in the OP and engage the debate then that is a problem. A yes vote is a promise to not escalate when it happens.

    I think if we want a fight, we can go looking for it. There are plenty of places to find one on this forum, OBOB is one of the few safe havens for Catholics. As someone on his way into the Church, I'd rather not face a barrage of anti-Catholic sentiment if I can help it. I'm just not interested in that sort of conversation right now.

    I know the rules prohibit that, but it doesn't preclude the many ignorant folk out there from getting off a shot before they're told otherwise.
