Politics and Religion - Not for Spine-Health

Every once in a while, we need to remind everyone, that the Moderator Team and Owners of Spine-Health take a firm stand when it comes to dealing with the two taboo subjects on online Forums:
Politics and Religion
There is a fundamental reason why we dont want threads/posts discussing the above. Spine-Health is a International site that has members who have different Political systems, different Religions and different views on life.
Because of that we do not tolerate members who try to engage in these topics.

I've been on many online sites and discussions of either one of those topics generally led into arguments, member bashing and eventual banning of members. We do not want to see this here, so, we try to catch things early.

It was brought to our attention that in the thread Where am I and how did I get here, things were so good before.
We are addressing this one like we have addressed violations in the past.

We do realize that many people have strong religious beliefs. Thats why we can accept those posts that end with
God bless you and other similar phrases. But we stop at the point where a member is talking about religion is the only way to correct our medical problems. I also have a belief , that individuals may have faith in whatever it is, but do not try to push that onto others.

So, please read and understand this warning. We really do not want to shut down any thread. But if it is necessary, we will lock it up, regardless if it is popular thread or not.
