About religious web sites generally:

There are literally millions of religious web sites on the Internet. On 2009-NOV-11, the Google search engine found:

bullet473 million references to "God;"
bullet373 million references to "Christian"
bullet278 million references to "religion;"
bullet201 million references to "Jesus;"
bullet106 million references to "Islam;"
bullet15 million references to Judaism;"
bullet4 million references to "Wicca."

Unfortunately, religious web sites often exhibit a vey narrow focus:

  • Many focus on the teachings of one religion or even on one faith group within a religion, and present them as absolute truth.

  • Many have as their purpose the promotion of the faith and beliefs of the webmaster or sponsoring agency -- often excluding all opposing points of view.

  • Many have as their goal the conversion of their visitors' beliefs to those of that faith group.

About this web site:

Our site is one of the few exceptions. We don't care what your religion is. We only care about whether you are willing to be religiously tolerant -- that is to accept the right of other folks to freely and openly follow their own spiritual path even if it is very different from your own.

In this web site, we try to:

bulletExplain objectively all of the major North American religions;

bulletExplain all points of view on controversial religious and moral topics, like equal rights for homosexuals, abortion access, spanking children, etc.

bulletPromote religious tolerance: treating others fairly and with respect, even though they follow a religion that is different from yours.

About the webmaster:

The webmaster is very fortunate to have been able to convert his life-time interest in religion into a full-time pursuit at retirement.

He is a "NOTA" (A "None Of The Above"; one person in the growing minority in North America who is not affiliated with a specific religion). Unlike almost all other webmasters of religious web sites, he is not committed to promoting a single faith group. He believes that he has at least some level of objectivity when he studies the religious scene.
