Every year in the lead up to Easter, people get kind of fired up about religion, and discussions get out of hand here. If you would like to discuss your bereavement and its impacts from a faith-oriented stance, please do so in the Member Group that was set up specifically for that purpose - Widows and Widowers of Faith. Here is a link to where you will find it:
It is against the rules here at DS to force a religious view on anyone, and it is considered "abuse" to attack someone based on a religious belief. What happens if you commit abuse here at DS? DS can remove your posts, suspend your membership, and if the abusive behavior does not cease, you can be banned permanently from membership here. Please don't bring that on yourselves.
Please be gentle with each other, and respect each other's beliefs (and non-belief, too). What we have in common here is a terrible loss and the need for support. Let's try to give each other that in a loving and non-judgmental way. If you are here for any other reason, then you are in the wrong place and need to go elsewhere.
Love and Hugs,
Martha, co-Community Leader
