Default Why was the Yusuf thread closed?

While admittedly semi-controversial, I thought it was an interesting and thought provoking thread. I'm curious why the moderators chose to shut this down, particularly on a community that seems to value the freedom to express ones views without interference of censorship. Maybe I'm missing something, but doesnt this detract from the value of a forum where we are free to express our views and exchange in a free form dialogue?

I moved it because it was straying into more Christianity vs. Islam. For some reason the political asylum opt-in link seems to be broken, so hopefully an admin can provide the new way

The asylum...now there's a rough forum. I don't go there anymore because nothing ruins a perfectly good time online than a political or religious argument. Besides, nobody ever changes anyone else's minds. But it was the right call to move it - it was posted in the wrong forum.

go into your User CP, on the left side select Group Memberships, on the right side select the Political Asylum radio button, at the bottom of the screen click Join Group.

Voila the Political Asylum will show up under the Backstage forums group Just under The Street forum.

heard one of his new songs earlier today and I gotta say it sounds really good. An other cup is getting good reviews as well. I may actually pick this cd up.
