53. And I am secure enough in my beliefs not to have to insult the beliefs of others.
In an ad or elsewhere.

As I have said repeatedly, I didn't feel threatened by the ad. I did feel it was inappropriate for this place, and not at all in keeping with the inclusiveness that we practice here all the time. (Well, most of the time. We don't show ads for Hustler or Jeff Gannon's "military stud" films on DU. I am sure that leaves a vacuum in some hearts here, or less volume in some pants. That also doen't threaten me.)

But I am noticing that this thread has brought out folks (other than the boobie lovers, who must require T&A 24/7 to exist) who feel the need to wear their beliefs on their "secular" sleeves.

Good on ya'. Glad there's a place here for all of us. Also glad we seldom have to wade through ads insulting the non-political beliefs of any of us (or anyone else) to make it to the threads, where we can insult the hell out of each other all day long, like pigs in slop.

This is a great place, isn't it? Sure hope you contribute to its upkeep. I do.
