How BHSE is supposed to work
The StackExchange format relies on building up a community of experienced users who understand the design and intent of the site and its scope. BHSE has a tightly defined scope which can be difficult to understand for users who have not really thought about hermeneutics before, or who don't take the Site Tour. Perhaps the biggest barrier to new users getting off to a good start is experienced users not giving sufficient feedback, or welcoming them to begin with. This should feel like a community, not just a "system".
There are various Review Queues which experienced users access in order to check noteworthy site events and 'nudge' the flow of new Questions and Answers in a healthy direction. When this system is followed well, new users should receive good quality feedback wherever they are experiencing issues.
How experienced users commonly fail to achieve this
For those with access to the Review Queues, too few really help with the 'First Posts' category, or click idly through posts that don't have obvious problems without really welcoming users or considering what guidance may benefit them. When too many experienced users 'click through' these review queues and just do the bare minimum, this can leave new users feeling discouraged, as they don't know what the actual problems are with their Questions or Answers.
If just a handful more of us were to meaningfully engage in this from time to time, the overall 'feel' of the site to new users would vastly improve.
How some new users experience it (initially)
With that said, I think that you've misinterpreted the events, as have some others who have responded here:
"All it takes is a group of those who have enough privileges to work
It's easy to vastly over-estimate the desire of experienced site users to behave like this, as well as over-estimating their willingness to co-ordinate for these types of outcomes. Most new users take feedback well and learn to ask better questions and give better answers. An initial negative-feedback loop frustrates many of us, but as we persevere and improve, it then becomes a positive-feedback loop as our approaches improve.
In practice, some users take many more conversations before they're willing to accept feedback or learn more about the SE format, or indeed the scope of BHSE. All users (new and old) have biases, but it should always be possible to use the site properly from almost any background (Christian, Jewish, other theist, Agnostic, Atheist or any subgroup) without undue penalisation. After all, the wider range of peer-reviewed literature on hermeneutics is crafted by a similarly varied group of individuals, and it should be safe to assume most experienced users are aware of this.
