As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • School calls cops on little boy who shares Bible verses

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/201....tics-outraged/

    Outrageous. A little boy shares the Bible verses tucked into his school lunch with friends, and the school administration sends POLICE! to his home to make sure he doesn't do it again.

    Apparently, the boy was COMPLYING with the school's demand that he only share the verses outside school gates and on the public sidewalk after school. As many as 15 other students were showing up for the share. Apparently this was disturbing to the school administration, who sicked the cops on the boy anyway.

    The school district is looking into it. Let us pray that the school is corrected, disciplined, and that the boy and his family are apologized to. Hopefully the Police are directed on how to appropriately address such requests in the future as well.

    Oh man if you want lots of rage fuel for police being called on children for asinine things, you should check out freerangekids.com. A lot of it does seem to be police not having clear guidelines for such matters or stupid guidelines that they have to follow whether they think they're stupid or not.

    Can't remember why I have a secular moniker, but I am a Christian just so you know. Per Admin: Evangelism: Rule 24: .... 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.

        I wonder what your reaction would be if the boy had shared verses from the Qur'an with his friends.

          It's his right to talk to his friends about whatever he wants on his free time, like recess or lunch break, even the Quran. And CERTAINLY there is nothing illegal about passing out leaflets of the Quran on the public sidewalks outside the School gate after school hours.

            Our country was not founded by Muslim shiites fleeing sunni persecution. It was founded by English Puritans fleeing persecution of William Laud Archbishops of Canterbury. And were it not for that persecution, and similar in Massachusetts, Roger Williams would not have conceived and articulated freedom of religion which he established as the founding law of Road Island. Like it or not, this country was founded by Christians. And the authors of religious tolerance were Williams and his Puritan and later Baptist followers which is to say, Christians. These principles didn't start with Lock they stared with Williams, many years before.

              The school wouldn't have had a reason to call the police if the boy had shared verses from the koran or any other publication.
