I only operate one opt-in filter for LJ. I'm generally anti-filter.

However, there is one area in which I find that people have a hard time being nice: religion.

I occasionally post about spirituality, my church, religion, beliefs and theology. However, I will not entertain any bad behaviour. That's why it is an opt-in filter.

If you want to be added, leave a comment.

If you do, that means you agree to these two things:

1) You will not attack any other users for any comments they make. You may attack me if you feel so obliged. I have a pretty tough skin if you have a valid argument. However, I don't expect that everyone does.
Keep your hands comments to yourself.

2) You understand that this is written from a Christian perspective, but that it is written by someone well versed in theology and actively engaging with the historical-critical method. I believe, but I have not been lobotomized. Just making sure you've got that under your belt.

Alright...filter = comment. :)

Okay, I only just now noticed your opt-in post. I'm always interested to hear people's thoughts. So I'm opting in. :)
23rd-Mar-2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
Right on. :)

It's a bit bare at the moment, I always seem to have 3 posts almost ready, but not readyready.

I have to preach in a month's time, so there will be that at least.

Hi, I realise I have only just come across your LJ (unusually quiet day at work, doing random surfing and adding to spice things up a bit!) and you don't know me from the proverbial, but I would be interested in opting in.

And...you're in. :)

The English half of my inlaws come from Surrey. That's all I got right now. (I feel like I've been lobotomized after today at the uni.)

I'd be interested in seeing what's behind the filter.

I try to be well-behaved; if I seem to be getting out of line, just remind me, eh?

It's a man playing an organ!

Oh, wait...wrong film.

I've not posted on this in a bit...I've a really hard to write one coming that I keep revising.

I don't know whether I'm on this filter, but I would be happy to be.
31st-Jul-2007 12:18 pm (UTC)
You are.

I polled the f-list ages ago and you'd asked to be on. I realized that it would be unlikely that I'd go back and check the poll, so I made a post to allow people to ask to be on the filter.

I've just not posted on it in a while. I need to get on with the various saved, but un-posted entries I have saved. :)

Tags for those entries are under '[rd]', but also 'rd', I'm in the process of changing all of them to the first of those.

I'm open minded as regards theology, and always interested in reading about it, so I'd like to opt-in!
8th-Mar-2008 03:09 pm (UTC)
Sure thing. :)
11th-Mar-2008 01:48 pm (UTC)
There was an opt in? Did I opt? I should have...
11th-Mar-2008 02:39 pm (UTC)
You have now. :)

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. (One or two folk from your theology dept are occasionally to be seen at St Margaret's; I'm curious to know what happens up in Auld Aberdeen, but I get the impression that the dept is separated into islands that don't have much contact with each other. Sorry, that's not particularly relevant, but I thought I should let you know where I was coming from).

Best wishes for the remainder of Lent,

I've only seen the outside of St. Margaret's. :)

It's lovely in the snow.

Only a few more days until passion week!
Best to you as well.

Thanks for the photo. I have a few of this cross, but none in the snow.
If you come along around 11:15pm on Easter Eve, you'll get to see it by firelight (augmented by a couple of spotlights).

I'll see if I can let you have a peek inside. (I assume I just type HTML code to include the image...)

I'm always up for this sort of thing, being a God-happy girl myself.
11th-Apr-2008 09:28 am (UTC)
Sure. :)
9th-May-2008 08:47 pm (UTC) - Friends :)
That is so funny, I was just over here MAYBE ten minutes ago max, debating whether it'd be weird if I friended you.

I'd love to be on your religious safe-space filter if you'd like.
9th-May-2008 09:47 pm (UTC) - Re: Friends :)
I know! There's so many from our lunch table that I think, 'oh, maybe it would be weird for me to join them'. :)

And yes, jump on in. I don't post much recently, but as with all LJ wittering, things come in arcs.
13th-May-2008 11:05 am (UTC)
You comments over here made me wonder... and hey look, you have a religion filter.

I opt-in.
13th-May-2008 11:29 am (UTC)
Sure enough. :)
17th-Sep-2009 01:51 am (UTC)
opt in several years late?
12th-Oct-2009 08:40 am (UTC)
Sure. :)
