The problem is we had a small tight knit group of religious folks who would discuss theological nuances, and it’s frustrating when staunch atheists come into that discussion with “Who cares? It’s all made up ■■■■■■■■ anyway. Lolo sky faeries.”
The religion forum used to have that rule and it was great. And I say that as someone who used to post there when I was an atheist. There is a way to do it politely but there is no sense in barging in like the Kool Aid man to disrupt a theological discussion where you don’t even agree with the general understood premise. It’s entirely disruptive.
