No X@$#!?* Allowed
are very active evangelists. They are also pariahs in many of the online Christian prayer sites I’ve researched. Me and , have been visiting chat rooms and forums to get ideas for a new feature we’re looking to add to the Prayables website. We’re building an online sacred space for women of different faiths to come together prayer. I found myself on . Here is a greeting taken directly from their site under Chat Room Rules:
We do not allow promoters of false doctrines and heresies such as JWs, Mormonism, Oneness theology, Baha'i faith, Arnold Murray, Etc.
It’s a free country and far be it from me to pass judgement, (ha, ha) but this just doesn’t seem right. I suppose a heretic could muck-up a pleasant chat, and maybe we’ll need to “keep ‘em out” of the Prayables sacred prayer space when it’s up and running. But don’t bet on it.
Wouldn’t it be a better more peaceful world if religious tolerance, rather than religious intolerance were the rule? There’s a wonderful group doing just that with a great website; . They have a staff that consists of a Zen Buddhist, Wiccan, Christian, Atheist and Agnostic. They don’t agree on almost every theological principle. But, they have a very long list of what they do agree on and it starts with:
“We do believe: In the inherent worth of every person. People are worthy of respect, support, and caring simply because they are human.”
I know that the little old lady in the airport who is praying for me, is worthy of respect. I know the folks in the My Guiding Light chat room are worthy of respect. I know that I am worthy of respect. Three of us with very different points of view, who likely would not agree on most things theological, have something in common. We share a respect for ourselves, and a respect for the dignity of prayer.

"God and the Apple of His Eye"
Angels are said to "carry" our prayers to God (a kind of figurative way of speaking, like the expression, "I carry the people I love in my heart"), which shows how all of creation is beautifully bound together: men and angels in Christ, in God.
