What are the best English-speaking Christian Internet forums?

Asked by mattbrowne (31585points) April 23rd, 2010

I’m not sure which one to try out. There are just so many, for example www.christianforums.com or www.christianforums.net or www.christianforumsite.com/forum. A Google search offers dozens of options.

Anyone on Fluther with personal experience in any of them?

A healthy mix of conservatives and liberals would be good, but I want to avoid forums with a majority of ultra-conservative religious nutcases. Another aspect I’m interested in is interfaith dialog, i.e. forums with users of other religions as well.

An Internet forum where people discuss religion in an orderly fashion? Without religion nutcases or antireligion zealots? In my experience, no such thing exists.

I do, however, wish you the best of luck finding it.

@bob_ – I said I want to rule out forums where the majority of users are religious nutcases. Every forum will have some of them. Even Fluther I guess.

@mattbrowne Yes, what I meant is that said religious nutcases tend to make the most noise. They are a very vocal minority.

Try http://www.christian-forum.net. While it’s strictly Christian and has its share of zealots, it’s well-moderated and keeps the anti-religion folks isloated to a thread just for the purpose of arguing with the Christians.

Thanks a lot. I’ll check them out!

I tried

http://www.christianguitar.org

and it was a very disappointing experience. On May 1 I contributed to a recent thread which was opened on April 28. Today on May 9 I logged in again reading the comments of people replying to my post. I wanted to comment on their comments but the thread was already closed. Just 8 days later. This is ridiculous. Sorry, but this isn’t my kind of forum.

I’ll try another one.
