    I appreciate your thoughts and am glad you posted this. I have mixed emotions about this.

    I am a survivor--not of religion wars, but of other things. There are times when I wished I knew even before opening a diary and seeing the diary that it might be something that would be difficult for me. It may sound silly, but the trigger warning, itself, sometimes can hurt.

    Perhaps more clearly labeled diaries may be a different option? So...instead of What I Heard Today as a title, using The Message at Church.

    People who want to be mean will enter, no matter the warning or title. People who see in a title or a warning in relation to religion, can then choose to enter or not.

    I will be interested to see what responses are to this.

    Thank you, commonmass.

    Peace, Hope, Faith, Love

      Street Prophets is the forum that mobilizes progressive people of faith to name, discuss and take action on critical political and religious issues. So come on in and make yourself at home. We believe that most, if not all topics touching on faith and politics are appropriate on Street Prophets. While this forum represents people of widely differing (and often directly conflicting) theologies, our goal here is to focus on forwarding the progressive political discussion that our shared values make possible. The Street Prophets blog was originally founded by Daniel Schultz, a ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and Markos Moulitsas, as an offspring of Daily Kos. Street Prophets seeks to change the "moral values" conversation by fostering community; promoting informed opinion and moving its members to action. We are believers in "justice, freedom, compassion and love," in the words of Rita Nakashima Brock. We are progressive, Democratic-leaning and vitally concerned with those whom Jesus called "the least of these." We are the faithful for whom the religious right emphatically does not speak. Its vibrant community of netroots faithful includes a broad range of faiths, including devout Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Atheists, Animists, and Neo-pagans. All who seek to promote a new conversation about the role of religion in America's public life are welcome here.
