Clarification on Rule 24

Good afternoon, I was hoping to get some clarification on rule 24:

24. Regular Users/meaning not Atheist/ that attempt to interfere with Christian evangelism, like, Christians/arguing with Christians on Secular or Cult, Religion forums, will be suspended or directed to the appropriate board. If two Christians want to debate each other, do not do so on the Mormon/JW/cult/RC forums but use the cult/religion forums to debate the cultists/not the other Christians. Please stick to the forum’s topic, debating those defending the religion they are promoting on that forum. Posters seeking to debate Evangelical Christians should take their discussions or questions to the appropriate forum, apologetics/etc. Atheists/Agnostics/Secularists or those continuing to debate Evangelicals on the inappropriate forums will be assigned to the ATH/AGN/Secular forums as a Secular Member. Secular Members are permitted to debate Christians on Secular Forums. (edit to add for understanding, the rule is that Cultists/other Religions may debate Christians on their forum topic, the group represented on the forum they are posting for debate, but if wanting to disagree with other Christians in a debate, Christians should take that to APO or other forums.)

My question is: I am Eastern Orthodox, so I'm not Catholic, but if I believe an evangelical's argument/assertions might not be accurate, am I allowed to say so? How far am I allowed to go before my posts are seen as "debating" and removed? Or do you want us (non-Catholics and non-Evangelicals) just to stay out of the forum, which I'm also happy to do?

Thanks in advance, -Tim

I would also appreciate the clarification, as I am confused.

You cannot debate non Catholics/Evangelicals on the RCC board. If you disagree with an Evangelical, you can take your argument to the theology boards.
You are welcome to stay on the RCC boards if you are discussing Catholicism with Catholics, but if you respond to a non Catholic because you disagree with them, that is considered interfering with evangelism and you will be given a warning and your posts will be deleted.
Hope that helps clear up any confusion.
