I want to throw out this idea. Rather than requiring every answer to say "According to the Baptist / Catholic / Orthodox / Coptic / FSM church", maybe we could just ask that all posters fill out their "About Me" section to include the faith background from whence they come / are knowledgable on. That way, the default presumption would be that, in the absence of words to the contrary, the answer could be considered in light of whatever background the writer attests to.
To a certain extent, I already know that
- @PeterTurner is my Roman Catholic go to guy.
- @MarcGravell is my spiritual but not explicitly mainstream Christian guy
I know that when I read answers from those two a. It's going to reflect their specific expertise b. Its going to good :)
(I could say this about a lot of us, but its easy to pick on those two, because they rock their respective viewpoints.)
By including information like this:
AffableGeek About Me:
Background: Grew up in an Evangelical, Protestant "Bible Church", educated in a Baptist seminary, and currently serving in an Episcopal Church
You have a better basis for evaluating the perspective from which I speak.
What do you think?
