As just about all the membership requests I get for this community are from people who apparently do not read our community profile
and do not meet our qualifications, I thought I would repost the information you need to know before you request to join. Please note that I really do follow the information below. Please do the same!
----------Are you a Christian Curly Girl? Then this is the place for you!
We're here to discuss our inner curl and curl care techniques. Curly girl pictures are welcome--we want lots of pictures of your locks!
The membership is moderated. You must be a Christian (Protestant) female to join.
Girls with all types of hair are welcome to join--even non-curly girls! No profanity or anything objectionable is allowed, of course.Please take note:1. We do not allow people to join who use profanity in their own journals or express un-Christ-like thoughts and behavior.
We have the right to refuse membership to anyone at our own discretion.
2. If we cannot determine from your public entries and your info if you're a Protestant Christian female or not, we will leave a comment to ask you. If you do not allow comments from non-friends or do not have an entry for us to comment on, we will refuse your membership request. To prevent this from happening, please allow comments from non-friends in your journal or leave a comment introducing yourself on one of </a></b></a>melyndie
's entries (or you can just leave a comment on this entry). Thank you.
----------FAQQ: What is a Protestant?
A: As far as the definition I go by, a Protestant is someone of a Christ-based religion who believes Jesus Christ alone is the only way for salvation. A Protestant also believes in the divinity of the Trinity (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all three persons in one Godhead; each one is a person of God). Protestants include denominations such as baptist, methodist, Lutheran, Nazarene, presbyterian, etc. Catholics are not Protestant, and LDS is not either (among others). I am not out to determine anyone's individual salvation; I'm just trying to make some parameters for creating a community of likeminded people.Q: Why is this group Christian? The Curly Girl book isn't connected to Christianity! Curly hair has nothing to do with Christianity!
A: It is for the sake of community. When members of a group are of like mind and have a commonality in the Lord Jesus Christ, there is a unique community of fellowship among them. Also, Christians generally have similar ideas of how to behave, so I don't have to spend time telling people what they can or can't say or do. Finally, this group is in no way officially connected with the Curly Girl
book, so we are not in breach of anything by having an unofficial group for Christians about curly hair. There are many other curly hair groups on LiveJournal and elsewhere where you can find curly hair advice if you need it and don't qualify for this group.
