The Hosts would like to remind posters that The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum does NOT allow generalized attacks or put-downs of any religion -- including Christianity. With very rare exceptions, religions are not evil.  Nor do all members of all but the most tiny religious groups believe the same things or do the exact same things. You may have had a bad experience with a religion and/or all the people you know well who are members of a religion may be scumbags, but that does not mean the religion as a whole is bad or that all the religion's member's are scumbags.

Chances are you don't like it where members of another religion say that Pagan religion X is evil; make claims like "all Wiccans worship Satan" or "Asatru is just a cover for Neo-Nazis;" or say that all Pagans are flakes based on the two or three flakes they have seen on TV -- so why on Earth should you be doing the same thing to religions you happen not to like or have had bad experiences with? If you can't refrain from making generalized attacks on a religion, just don't talk about that religion.

Also, please be aware that many long time members of The Cauldron are quite knowledgeable about certain non-Pagan religions (some of them are well-studied members of those religions or have degrees in fields related to religion) and will correct factual misinformation posted about those religions. If you want a forum where people are allowed to put down non-Pagan religions at will or a forum that tolerates spreading misinformation about non-Pagan religions, The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum is simply not the place for you. Note that this doesn't mean you cannot talk about personal bad experiences you've had with a religion. Just don't use those experiences to justify attacking the religion as a whole.
