So apparently "God" is considered innapropriate on Miiverse.

Is it only the US Miiverse not allowing the term God?
What's with the European version?

Also, it is sort of ridiculous to ban the word 'God' because of its religious meaning

phrases like

"God bless you"
"Oh God!"
"For God's sake"
"God, dammit"

are so intertwined in our way of speaking that it pretty much lost its original meaning and just means:

"Good luck/health"
"Oh maaan"
"Come on"
"Crap"

I think it's ridiculous to ban people from saying god... if anything it's borderline discrimination.

Not making a religious endorsement is fine, but preventing others from doing so is infringing upon their rights.
It's like the whole prayer in schools issue, being that they are state employees teachers aren't allowed to make any religious endorsements.

However if a student wants to, then it's discriminating against their beliefs to tell them that they can't.



Religious censorship was something that made me mad about the FF Tactics remake, they changed the symbols and took out one of the best quotes of the game.

I couldn't use WoG for World of Goo. Still can't figure out what's wrong with that.


Uh, well....

While banning the word is silly, it does not infringe upon your rights.

How could it not be? It violates free speech and freedom of religion

Governement's not even allowed to keep natives from using peyote, how in the world do you expect people being banned from discussing their beliefs is going to go over?

You're confusing how "your rights" are applied on a global scale. "Your Rights" as an American citizen (I'm guessing your country of origin here) don't apply to products created and systems run in Japan for instance.

By the way, I don't know about Peyote but Weed is legal in Washington and Colorado now.

:D

Freedom of religion means your freedom to be of whatever religion you so choose. This is, incredibly obviously not being violated. Claiming it is being violated is weird.

As for freedom of speech, I suggest you look up what that means, because you badly misunderstand it. It is not the freedom to say whatever you want, whenever you want, wherever you want. It is the freedom from having the government impose limitations on your speech. It doesn't stop your speech from being otherwise regulated. For example, GameFAQs bans you from writing lots of words. That's OK, and is not a violation of freedom of speech, because GameFAQs is not a government making laws, it is a private venue, just like Miiverse.
