Response to Silent3 (Reply #17)

18. Good points and I am persuaded to some extent.

I think I am reacting to the rather pervasive attacks by some here on what they call "godbotherers" (or worse).

As long as there is some consistency, I can respect that. But to complain bitterly about billboards, published ads or door to door *salesman* from only one camp seems quite hypocritical to me.

My initial point was that this ad is no different than the Chick comics that evangelicals leave around. Neither really bother me personally, but they are essentially the same thing. And the Chick comics really crack me up, particularly since they primarily leave them in the portable toilets around here.

You are correct that I am much better able to tolerate persuasive attempts regarding politics. It made me remember that I have many friends who absolutely refuse to let me speak to them about politics. Surely they feel the same way I do when the subject comes to religion.
