It says that it has to relate to the subject of this forum. Which is fish, and that's what we're keeping it in the context of. I asked a mod about this recently and he told me that topics such as fish going to heaven are ok because it relates to fish.

I'm not judgmental toward anyone's beliefs I just think if you believe then that's ok and what it comes down to is person preference. No one can tell you what to tell/teach your children they can just give tips

Alright. I know nobody is here to offend. Just when we got into the beliefs of different groups I myself thought it was crossing a line. If you asked a mod and the moderator said it was OK obviously the mod has more power than me.

My reasoning was that on one thread I saw, a moderator said early on that if religion was brought into the discussion the thread would be immediately shut down. But, for some people (including myself) religion was part of their viewpoint on the subject. This brought me to believe that religion was just a big no-no on this site.

Nope... Religion can be discussed on the topic of fish (ie, fish going to heaven, etc). Religion cannot be discussed on topics like the world ending in 2012. Now... back on topic...

But that's what we're talking about

This has been enlightening. I definitely agree about giving kids their due.

That's your opinion. it's not horrible advice, I believe that everything will go to heaven. As a matter of fact I think that is good advice.

Today's kids, even very young ones, get input from so many venues, i.e., their parents, internet, school, etc., I think your point is a very valid one.
