* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Honestly, I can't help but feel that this is a good thing. I honestly feel that for many people in the past, religion was a Have To, and choice was removed from the matter. If being religious is becoming more of a choice, then of course less people would choose to be religious- but as the article states, those that choose to be religious would then be far more interested in their respective religions.

I've often thought I might be more open to organized religion if it had not been forced on my as a child.
