    I cannot see where christians on this forum have been attacked. Obviously others (including myself) argue against christianity and its negative influences on our Germanic/Nordik heritage.Christians have every oppertunity to defend their beliefs as we do to defend ours. I have defended my beliefs against christians for years against far more adversity and peer pressure than sitting in my living room on the computer. If you believe in your convictions than you should have no problem defending them to others.I dont like to see forum members quit ,but I also dont like cowards who are afraid to stand up for their beliefs ,whether I agree with them or not.

    Skadi is a vast forum, with many people of many religious and political backgrounds. Many people here have strong and passionate opinions and they are unwilling to compromise them just because someone doesn't like them. Before you blame pagans, ask yourself if you would shed your own opinions if we asked you to. Those advising for self censorship and moderation should be the first to practice them. Otherwise, it's a one sided effort.

    I'm heathen but I don't care if anyone else is Christian. I don't believe the religion is for everyone. I think most heathens feel the same. I don't see where they are attacking Christians other than stating opinions as to why they aren't Christian and disagree with the faith.

    Thank you for your suggestion, but why would we do that? Skadi is a forum for Germanics, irrespective of faith. Skadi is also a free speech forum, so we don't want to interfere with debates, as long as no rules are violated. We offer you a platform for discussion, and you make use of it how you best know and can. You/Christians are just as welcome to state your points as Germanic Heathens are. As long as you do it civilly, there should be no problem. If you feel that anyone has been vulgar and uncivil in their criticism of Christianity, please make use of the report post function. As I've noticed, both Christians and Heathens who crossed the line had their posts edited. The staff does not treat members preferentially according to religion or faith.

    If you feel more at home on forums where politely expressed, but differing views are censored, then Skadi is not the ideal place to frequent. However, if you want to continue making use of this discussion platform for Germanics to state your pro-Christian point of view, you are welcome to.

    Good luck to you, whichever decision you may make.

    I learned a lot in this thread and I appreciate what everybody wrote. So more viewpoints I see and understand so better a picture I get.

    I you talk about 'defending' your faith you are in a war and the one who leaves is more likely the one who admits defeat. As I said for me a discussion is not a war but to make things visible and obvious. I am not into right or wrong points of view.

    I am also not into missionary aspects or make everybody as I believe. I think diversity in opinion is good as it brings out the best. Truth is always a bitter pill. Truth isn't comfortable. But thats the way to grow.

    Yes, one can run away but the problem why you run away is inside you. Wherever you run to, the problem is still there.

    Its your choice to go or to stay but I think the superior point is to stay. To bear the contracidiction the challenge, the insult if you feel and so on.

    Your hero Jesus didn't run at his last trial. He easily could have.

    As a relative newcomer to this forum (I only joined earlier this month) I've just been reading this thread with great interest.

    I'm not really into the whole religion thing but having gone through the above 25 messages I'd be grateful if someone could provide a link to the "offending" thread so I can better judge what I've just been reading about :-)

    I hope someone can help - cheers!

    discussion is offending if you are your opinion, belief or argument. The identification with it makes things personal and sharp contrast is then 'offending'.

    What ever offending is is of course a matter of the officials here. But I didn't see it.

    Well in my time on Skadi I have noticed a few things.

    1) it is not a debate forum, there is way too much moderation here for that.
    2) it is basically a fellowship board for Germanic's, and the vast majority of them are Pagans.
    3)The board name “Skadi” should be an first indicator considering it is the name of the goddess of winter.

    Personally I have no problem with that, because the internet is a big place and message boards are a dime a dozen.

    So in essence Skadi is a minority message board, and does not appeal to the mass or the majority.
    As such they ban people that do not agree with them.

    Which is also fine by me.

    My problem comes in when they make the statement that they are a “Free Speech” forum, when in reality they are more of a fellowship board for Germanic's. That in essence is a problem, because it is a misrepresentation of the truth.

    But in a word of defense for Skadi, if they were a true open board such as the troll board, considering what they discuss, they would be overwhelmed by trash posters, who would attack every aspect of the board. So in that case some moderation is due.

    My personal Opinion is you should take it for what it is, A Germanic/Pagan Message board, which is mostly about discussing those topics.

    In any case, sorry to see you go, and best of luck.

    Sad to see you go Papa Koos, but this post of yours IMO contradicts your above statement:

    Quote Originally Posted by Papa Koos View Post

    Anyhow farewell.
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".
