I was going through the different discussions and could see mix of responses from Catholics and Protestants. This creates a huge confusion in the discussion as the fundamentals of both denominations are different. Due to this responses in discussions are creating confusion as you see references to traditions and opinions as opposed to facts. In matter of faith the fundamental positions are important and if not in agreement then it's irrelevant on agreeing on minor or superficial points. Having different sites will keep the discussions relevant and short. Other members can share their opinion on this.
I followed the Catholicism site proposal, but not this one, although I am the first user on this site and find it a great place to ask questions about the Catholic Church, and it eventually became filled with knowledgeable folks.
As a Catholic, I found that my answers to "general Christianity" questions, especially biblical interpretation questions were not held in very high regard and this site became more a of popularity contest.
The moderation crew, and the people who frequent this meta-site, also realized that and attempted to make it clear that most, if not all, questions require some form of scoping to make it clear who you want answers from. That comes in the form of both tagging, and clearly asking for the scope of who you want answers from in the question.
If the answers provided do not come from the point of view of the question asked, they can be flagged by users and will more than likely be deleted.
If the questions you mentioned say "Locked" or "Closed", then these questions have already been determined to be questions that cannot be reasonably answered from a defined point of view within Christianity.
Pay Attention To The Tags on Questions to Avoid Confusion.
I strongly suggest that you pay close attention to the tags under each question. That will prevent most of the confusion.
- If the question is tagged "Catholicism" then any answer worthy of a vote has to come from a Catholic point of view.
If the question is tagged "Reformed" or "Anglican" or "Presbyterian" (and so on, lots of denominations) then any answer will have to come from that PoV.
I can't emphasize this enough: Pay Attention To The Tags. It's been very helpful to me to do so, and I think it will be helpful to you.
Christians disagree on a lot of fine detail
Because there is a lot of difference in interpretation between the denominations, this sire requires that answers (in most cases) and questions clarify which Christian denomination's interpretation or teaching is being asked about. To not do that creates confusion, and a lousy signal to noise ratio.
The whole purpose of SE sites it to provide Questions and Answers that have a high signal to noise ratio. That's why the above is done.
Did I mention the tags?
Please make sure you read the tags associated with each question.
