Jason;
proselytizing = to recruit members esp. by the offer of special inducements.
I know the rule doesn't say it yet. In the past, I had them included in the rule but when I upgraded, it was reverted back to generic guideline. I forgot to add it back in the guideline but if you do a search for this word "proselytizing" in DOL, you will find several thread telling DOL members to refrain from doing so.

Heath;
then no need to tell us "Yes all of us need to turn our hearts and faces to God in prayer" such like that and that is a subtle proselytizing.


Heath;
see your post in this thread: http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/index.ph...indpost&p=69136

You said:
QUOTE
"and God Bless !!!! I pray that you all be on your way to being saved converted and healed. Jesus Christ is able to heal you if you obey the KJV Holy Bible to the max .... of course you will start alittle by alittle then pick up more and more like a train on a steam until you are going full speed ahead for Jesus Christ. Amen God Bless !!!


To me this looks like a "subtle proselytizing" which I asked you long time ago stop saying anything about god or religion because it is personal. I asked to keep it to yourself and refrain from quoting verses or scripture or sort of praying in dol that we would be converted or read your specific bible that is KJV Holy Bible. see my post in your locked thread: http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/index.ph...indpost&p=68792

In other word, don't talk about god or you might start a debate which I don't allow. Like it has started in the shoutbox! You knew better!

If you keep doing this, I have no choice to save my forum from your such proselytizing by kicking you out of DOL so we all can resume our normal posting than seeing too much of your religious remarks. DOL is not the place for you to proselytize us. like I said before that DOL is founded by secular humanist and that is me. If you want to remain DOL member, I am asking you refrain from typing anything about bible or god or praying. just normal talk like we do everyday when we talk about certain topic, like for example, if we talk about needlepointing, I expect you not to talk about god in such thread even mention god like "I needlepointed my pillow to have the word "god" because I believe in god so should you too!" blah blah like that. but when it comes to discussion about "church and state" issue, that discussion is ok as long no subtle proselytizing has occurred. for example this thread is which I allowed: http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/index.ph...542&#entry40542 (notice what Dale says? he respected my rule so he hasn't so that's the proof that I had "no proselytizing" rule before my Board Guideline was reverted back to generic one.

Oh by the way, you can stop saying Amen or God bless you from now on, Heath! If you don't like it then bye!

By the way, if religion's more your thing, there are plenty of other boards out there that would be happy to have you. Me, I'm not here for religion, I'm here for chatting with other D/HOH. So shalom aleichem - peace be with you, whatever you proselytizers decide.

(IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/confused1.gif) Your point for bumping this?! Trying to stir a hornet's nest when Jason and Heath hasn't posted in here for a good month or so..

Your point is moot because you just said this..

Whether Boult is on vacation or not, forum members should be able to control themselves or at least get their "Hyde" under control! (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Yeah, no clue why you split and bumped this thread Boult instead of just writing a general statement that proelytizing is not acceptable here.

Actually Jason, Rickyrab bumped this thread up. It is up to Boult's discretion to explain whether proselytizing is allowed in DOL or not.
