In the poll questions, I voted to keep every category, even though I am terrible at about half of them. Please vote to keep the Bible category. I so love waking up in the morning and getting a Bible or Movie question!

I voted that I personally didn't want the Bible one, but voted to keep all the catagories as I think I need to be open minded to everything.

I voted to keep it Leah but after checking the polls those who want it removed are way ahead of those who want it to stay...

I also agree that we should not remove the Bible category. I'd like to give a couple of non-faith based arguments for keeping it. First, this is a large part of our common heritage, no matter what our personal beliefs. I think that would be mostly true for the people at this site. Second, secular colleges, universities and other schools have long given courses such as "The Bible as Literature," etc., that treat the cultural aspects of the heritage without going into the matters of faith or personal beliefs.

Also, for those who still would not like to receive this category, will Sploofus still let people opt out of one category? That option ought to be retained for situations like this one.

These are just a couple of ideas to throw into the mix.

One more note, I see in another thread that there won't be any exceptions. I don't think that is a good idea. Personally, if somebody wants to cheat on the question of the day, let he or she do it. I really can't think of anything much more absurd. Nobody even gets to know that they are cheating. So much for fame and fortune in Sploofusland...

Also, as seen in another thread, the idea of a world religions and philosophy thread would be enjoyable for me. Be careful of term, theology, because that gets into the area of faith.

Lastly, no thread entitled "Please, Please, Please" can continue for long without a mention of James Brown, the hardest working man in Showbiz. It's time to begin playing that funky music because Sploofus has a brand new bag.

It looks like it says the new program won't support the exemption option for a catagory. My guess is that it can't be used because of the computer change even if Sploofus wanted to.

OK, I am a devout Chritian that believes the Bible is the true Word of God. That said, I do not have a problem with the Bible being eliminated as a singal category (although i did vote to keep it). I would be happy with getting the Religion and Phylosophy (sp) category, and moving the Bible into any category that includes books or literature. While many may argue that the Bible is not the Word of God, no one can argue it is not literature. I really have no problem with 'levelling the playing field' as long as that does not include eliminating Christianity for the sake of secular belief, or non belief, systems. Let us have a category that includes ALL religion. I will never give up trying to convince people that the Bible is right, but I do not think shoving it down someone's throat is the way to go.

Carol, Thank you. I love your suggestion. Solomon would be proud of your compromise.

I voted to keep it Leah. That was one of my favorite subjects.
