    Don't twist the rules to suit you.

    Love your opponents.
    You shall not desire your opponent's pawns, knights, rooks, queen, king, and especially not his/her bishops.
    If your opponent takes your rook, turn in your other rook.

    Under Christian rules, the use of cognitive faculties to reason through lines of play is frowned upon; in many cases, it is strictly forbidden. Every good move is a free gift from Jesus Christ. Every poor move is the result of human free will. To win, one needs only play blind-folded whilst praying for the Holy Spirit to guide one's hands. These rules were invoked based on the general opinion that the game was just getting just too damn hard when the taxing process of rational thought was involved.

    Christians favor bishops over knights, except that anti-Catholic Christians favor knights over bishops. A Christian will never promote a pawn to a queen if the first queen remains on the board. Christians also keep the queen at home as much as possible, so she may offer domestic comfort and service to her king. Hence, Hikaru Nakamura's 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 never would be played by a Christian.

    A Christian Chess Discussion Board? That makes about as much sense as a Spirituality forum on a chess site.

    It makes exactly as much sense as a Christian Logic board, actually.

    That depends on whether you're using "Christian" as an adjective or an adverb, actually.

    'Christian Logic' is in this case a proper noun referring to the board of which Coletti is a moderator. However, as I am getting tired of saying, logic is content-free, analytic and valueless and thus cannot be Christian (adj).

    Christian chess is chess played by Christians.

    Christian logic is logic applied by Christians.

    You are correct - logic does not depend on the content - it depends on correct reasoning. Given A, B, and C, can we correctly infer X, Y, and Z?

    How about a noun?
