Two threads have been deleted. Poof, gone in the last 24 hours that mentioned atheism. There was nothing bad at all in them and fact I got a welcome from a fellow atheist and in land where it is quite religious it was very nice to know I was not alone.

Both threads mentioned atheism and both threads were deleted. I have seen no other threads deleted in my short time here so I can only asume that the moderators are uber religious and delete anything that lists anything about atheism or nonbelief.

It's quite upsetting and certainly makes me think again about moving to a place that is not very accepting. Can someone please explain?

I'll know the truth if this thread disapears.

I'm not sure what happened. There are some uber religous folks on the isalnd of all sorts of different religions. Also lots of nonreligious folks. A very good mix of people. One of the things I enjoy most about the island is the rich diversity of people and culture.

it could be the threads were taking down because it quickly turned into a personal attack thread. a good debate does not turn into name calling and those threads usually do.

It's simple if you read the guidelines of the board. Off- topic and negative posts provoking argument (paraphrasing) will be deleted. This is about relocating and living in the U.S.V.I., and not any other Caribbean place, for that matter. If someone wants to be a ChattyCathy about anything and everything, I'm sure there are other places. I personally don't want to read about a person's anti-religious thoughts on this board, and same goes for the reverse, I'm sure.

Both the threads were off topic but both didn't really have a topic to begin with and I only chimed in when someone was talking about "God" the the pledge of allegience. It was all super civil and not negative at all. Then poof it was gone.

Then the next thread was asking what happened to the first thread. That one was kind of negative because one member was saying that another member was trying to recruit atheists or something and I was a bit offended. I had just posted that there was no recruiting and it was nice to know I wasn't alone. And one woman welcommed me as a fellow atheist so I felt better but then again poof it was gone.

Well I am glad to know that it is allowed and this thread was here when I woke up.
