Introduction: Welcome one and all! This Bulletin Board is owned and monitored by Steve Ray and open to all for free and courteous discussion. All Christian traditions are welcome (and non-Christian as well). We are relatively censure-free for those who would like to discuss, ask questions, share, and even politely disagree. Messages are not deleted as a rule, but the right is reserved for the good of the Board and its faithful participants. All threads are archived and available to read for up to six months. Click here to register.

Statement of Faith: 1) We are faithful and orthodox Catholics; true to the Scriptures, the Apostolic Tradition, and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church; holding to the Ecumenical Councils and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. 2) We love and honor our Holy Father John Paul II. 3) We love and accept our Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Coptic, Armenian, and brothers and sisters of other Christian traditions. We are ecumenical and invite all Christians back home to the fulness of the Faith which subsists in the Catholic Church. We honor our Jewish friends as the Called of God. My books Crossing the Tiber and Upon this Rock make my position on these matters abundantly clear.

Rules: 1) Messages must be polite and fair without personal attacks or mean-spiritedness. No cursing, threatening, slander, vulgarity, or the like. 2) We do not allow anyone to overwhelm the Board with personal agendas. If someone has an agenda they can start their own Board. 3) Do not use the Subject Line for more than twenty word descriptions or replies. 4) Do not leave excessively long posts that will slow down the Board.
5) Do not post other user's email addresses without their permission.

Messages violating the rules may be deleted without apology. Participants consistently violating the rules may be banned without apology. This has only happened a very few times in five years.

Requests: 1) Your e-mail address is not a requirement, though the webmaster has a record of all e-mail addresses and registrations. If you provide your e-mail address in the proper field, you will be notified by e-mail when someone responds to your message. 2) If you post quotes from others (e.g., theologians, Fathers, Church documents, etc.), please provide the citation as a courtesy. 3) If you detect violations of the rules, any problems, intimidations, etc., please contact Della at kgavlas@usfamily.net or Steve Ray at sray@rc.net. Enjoy! May God bless you and this Board, using both to build His Kingdom.

Moderator: Kathleen Gavlas assists Steve Ray as the Moderator of this Message Board. Kathy, who writes under the name Della, and has authority and technical ability to maintain a civil tone on the Board, enforce the rules evenhandedly, warn people, delete messages if necessary, and even ban participants who refuse to cooperate, if necessary.

New Login Name Policy: Your login name now appears next to the Name you enter for your post. Since your login name is always displayed there is no longer a requirement to enter a name in the Name field. You can change your login name if you wish by clicking on "change your user account" below. A few deviants have used other people's names to post unacceptable messages and this will allow us some control over the problems frequently confronted on Message Boards. Thanks for understanding.
