You need to be a member of LOSS OF A SIBLING SUPPORT GROUP to add comments!

Comment by Gwen H on February 28, 2015 at 2:30am

While I have never read any comments of criticism before in over three years, I also have not read as many religious postings. Religion is a highly personal belief, and best kept to oneself. This is a very emotional time for many, and to interject personal beliefs is not the wisest choice to make on a page for emotional support.

I agree. This is not the place for drama and arguing. People come here for support, not criticism or to have their beliefs mocked in their time of grief when they need them most. Tay, if that is what you are looking for then perhaps you should be the one to leave. I have never seen any prior rudeness on this site in the year and a half that I have been a member. People should be able to post whatever helps them through their grief. I did not see where any religious posts bothered anyone else and if it wasn't relevant to them personally they obviously moved on to other comments without being offended.

"Why can't we all just get along" is what Rodney said. Let people say & believe whatever they want, why are you so rude tay? You don't have to read it! I ike the posts! I'm Christian!

I dont have to worry since I am not the one quoting the bible. It doesn't bother me what people post, we all have the right to post what we believe...I was just offering a suggestions..there are more important things to worry about...Enjoy your weekend! :)

This is not a Bible group. It is a grief support group. Rather than asking everyone else to ignore your irrelevant postings, I recommend that you join a Bible discussion group. Your postings there would be 100% relevant and would not clog up the discussion.

I dont believe that this is a Bible session, I believe they're just giving quotes for those that it applies to you to help them deal with grieving. if it doesn't apply to you then ignore it.

If you are interested in talking about the Old Testament and the New Testament, then I would recommend a Bible page. However, you to remember that not everyone who is religious (like me) is a Christian. Furthermore, a lot of people are atheists as well. It is not respectful to these other groups of people to turn this page into a Bible study session.

HI all-

Hi all-I agree with Trish and Lisa.  I too believe I will see my beautiful sister Lisa again but also realize that not everyone shares my faith.  I believe that we should be able to express ourselves on this site-this is the one site that allows for that and that includes all faiths or no faith.  This is the time for comfort and not disagreement.  Getting through the grieving process and becoming stronger is what we are all trying to do and while the ways may differ it is important we are understanding and helpful for one another.

I just hope we can all help eachother in our time of need. Your Religion is your own not everyone is going to agree with eachother but we can still support one another.
Life is hard lets stick together ❤️

I certainly don't remember a disclaimer on this site saying that we weren't allowed to discuss religion whether Old Testament or the New Testament in regards to grieving; certainly we cannot discount anybody's faith or religion in regards to grieving but to tell somebody that they can't talk about the Old and New Testament and regards to greeting is unfair and inappropriate.
