Not likely to happen. New areas are only created when there's enough clear support to justify it. And debate areas are not really wanted by the site owner.

It would not be a debate area. It would be for Christians only sharing information that works.

Where cult members would inevitably go to argue against the claims, as happens in threads tackling the same sort of topics.
It would be a constant task to remove every post that disagreed, not to mention disrupt the flow of threads. And there's no way to keep people out who disagreed.

But again there has to be a perceived need by enough people to even be considered, according to the site owner.

What I've learned, in 9 years on the site, about new forum topic

suggestjons:
*nothing debate oriented or that could be perceived as such
*nothing that puts undue demand on mods
*must be enough people to justify it
*I've never seen them censor other beliefs, unless they are preaching or aggressively defending beliefs that go against Christian beliefs
*the number of options is purposefully kept to a minimum to keep the site from being bloated
