We welcome Christians as well as all those who are seeking the truth, and hope you'll not only come here often to read, but join us in posting and discussions.
Unfortunately, due to a number of ignorant fools who seem to think this is a place to advertise their websites and/or post spam, all future new members will have to be approved by staff before their accounts are activated.
I'm sorry to have to do this - a few selfish people, as always, ruin things for many - but every attempt will be made to activate new members within 24 hours.
Thank you for your understanding; as for you spammers - GET LOST!
Edited to add:
In the past, we've exercised good faith towards new registrants and accepted those with what are obviously small business addresses, e.g., "BigBobsLimoService@gmail.com." Unfortunately, each and every time we've done that we've been taken advantage of by people who have NO interest in real news, Christianity, or even pets tips or recipes, but were only looking to spam us with free advertising for their business.
Because of them, no one with an email addy that looks like it's from a small business will be approved for membership. We realize some people do use a work address, and addys from obviously legit companies and domains, "e.g., DannySchwarzkopf@BigLawFirm.com" are fine.
Sorry for any inconvenience, but unfortunately, a few selfish creeps ruin it for everyone.

I see some new peeps have joined the board (welcome!) but their accounts aren't yet activated.
After you register, you will automatically get an email from the board which has a link which you have to click on to activate your account. You should have it within an hour of registration; check your spam folder if you don't seee it. Once you do that, the board admins get a notification which we then click on...then you're free to post, change your background, and do all the other regular member stuff.
Sorry a few make problems for the rest of us, but the goats will be culled out soon...
