I think more people are not happy about using free surfboards as a hook to reel kids in. If that is not what you do and keep the preaching to a minimum then good for you.

the ironic thing is that if you take the bible at face value, God comes out looking pretty bad and lucifer pretty good.

1. I don't recall ever hearing of Jesus making people listen to a "sermon" before healing them or feeding them. He went and helped others with out the whole "time share like speech" crap Wayne seems to be pushing for the "FREE" board. I have given 6 surfboards to kids over the years that had none and more skateboards than I can count. Not once did I try and lure them in to my insurance salesman beliefs or try and convert them to liking my favorite football team or have any other motive than to see the stoke on their face. Stoke em up first Wayne (not in the Catholic church alter boy way mind you) then once they ask about your beliefs or for guidance by all means teach them the word of God.
2. Why is it that Christians (of which I am one) feel the need to impose our will upon others? I find it a little hipocritical that we preach religious tolerance yet during the crusades we slaughtered thousands in the "name of God" if they would not convert. In fact the saying "kill em all and let God sort them out" comes from the crusades. While sacking a town the soldiers asked the leader (who was a monk) how do we tell the difference between the Christians and the heathens? The general replied, "kill them all and God will know his own" the soldiers proceeded to slaughter 20,000 citizens including all the women and children in the village.

Like anything in life, you have posers and the genuine, where the posers often give things that are good a bad name or leave a bad taste in people's mouths. Discernment of the sincere and genuine needs to be pursued, as well as being sincere in word and in deed.
