Perhaps people are just tired of the hypocrisy that all too often gets jammed down our throats with the proselytizing. And which has been jammed at us for hundreds of years.
Priests & religious 'leaders' of all kinds butt-bombing boys. Abusing women. Stealing money. Lording over us common folk with that entitlement thing raging unchecked.
Perhaps many of us are just tired, tired, tired of hearing how someone proclaims that they have the solution to a good life, only to see that someone, time & again, unveiled as merely human with all the foibles, fallacies & foulness of standard-issue homo sapiens.
You found something that works for you? Really? Then just keep it to yourself.
Tired of the self-help soul-unrolled deep-dish how-to-fix-your-life recipes from those who've gone off the rails & stumbled back towards the rest of humanity wearing the cloak of self-destructiveness and redemption as if it's carte blanche or worse, their own private EZ Pass to life.
Religious proselytizing is one of those offenders.
Who giveth a f***eth what you think. Keep thine noise to thyself.
Wayne, i feel your pain of persecution. As a Pastafarian, i too have had my belief structure challenged in a public forum. like you, i have asked myself why don't people realize i'm here to save them? if they could only think like me and validate my beliefs, then the world would be a better place - i'm sure of it.

Impacting the coast for the FSM
Yankee is correct, pride goeth before a fall, there is no one good, and all have sinned.
this is why you religious people are the worst. "i want to shove my beliefs on you but you're not allowed to disagree" stay in florida please.
ps Hanna is my hero
If you find some kids, just give them the board yourself.... If you surf, you know kids that could use a new board.

Have a great day and lets all catch some waves.
Most of the people I've met who need to let everyone know they're "christians" or that their cause is "christian" have turned out to be downright nasty-ass egomaniacs. When I see or hear "christian" I turn the other way, regardless of the "cause".
No ego here. I take no credit. All the glory goes to him. To be honest with you, without HIM we would not be here to talk about this.I am here to spread the TRUTH about Jesus. Genesis 1:1" In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." This is earth correct? Without water on this earth there would be no waves,therefore no surfing and no surf forum. In all without God we are nothing.

Like I've said before, I gi e all my old boarsd away. I just don't need to talk about Jesus when I do.
And Jesus DID impact the coast. He sent his homegirl Sandy
