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

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! :)

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.

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.

@Mark Anderson - I don't know what advice to offer you - they don't teach those of us with a faith in God to grieve without having faith and God involved. I couldn't imagine grieving without faith and knowing I am going to a better place one day to be with my sister. I am kind of shocked at the "largest growing group..." statement, is it really? Where do they go when they die? Who knows, so I am afraid I cannot help them (those that don't believe) the ones that die, maybe they have faith and already have a plan and are in another place. For me, I know (according to the bible) I will see my sister again one day and it will be wonderful...

I have notice in a number of posts make reference to using religious scriptures as a way to deal with a loss.  I agree that ones faith can play an important role in helping us cope. I am concerned that for many people who do not have a religious belief that they are made to feel something is wrong with them.  I think it is so important for people to understand that grief is very difficult and the ability to share our pain with each other is the most important thing we do.  The largest growing group of people in the U.S. is those with no religious belief.  Lets make sure we don't alienate them.
