    More positive and spiritual posts. Ones that take the faith seriously and not with snark and criticism of the truth claims or leadership.

    I’m hoping that this doesn’t turn into the Deseret News. Some of us have tentative agnostic conclusions beyond what is listed in the Articles of Faith–having a venue where we can explore these issues in relative safety, helps us to not leave the borderlands for the hinterlands. I can truly say that there have been occasional posts that have helped my unbelief.

    I would hope it turns into the Deseret News, because there are far too many Salt Lake Tribunes online for you go read and participate. Show me more than two that observant Mormons can feel comfortable with.

    Jettboy: I would think you would like this OP I just did this week at BCC, and that you would also not object to my post on Selfish Altruism this week. http://bycommonconsent.com/2013/08/22/the-body-as-a-temple/

    I think you get the Wheat to Tares ratio about right regarding topics. I also enjoy that there are a wide variety of commentator here.

    Observant Mormons have nothing to fear if they have built their testimony upon the Rock.

    I also think the ratios are good. I like variety, controversy, provocation, as well as things that are spiritually uplifting. It gives believing commentators a chance to hone their apologetic arguments, and it gives doubters a chance to see that there is a wide spectrum of believers in the church, and challenge them if you want (as they love to be challenged.). As long as both “orthodox” and unorthodox are treated respectfully and welcomed as part of the dialouge. I sheepishly admit I sometimes make comments because I’m looking for a fight, simply to get a reaction, to be either provocatively orthodox, or provocatively unorthodox. I don’t think I’m the only one. Hawkgrrrl is a fantastic moderator, and I would do well to aspire to her tact, confidence, and respect.
