Holy donkey balls save me Jebus, Wayne is at it again. So if the poll shows the answer is no will you stop posting then?

They say it a sign of insanity to do the same things and expect different results. Why keep returning to your favorite dead horse? This thing has been whipped!
Think about it, if you were born in Asia or the Middle East, would you be a Christian?
Some people just need to join a group. Others are content to discover the "Truth" for themselves.
The "Truth" can be described in different ways to people of different cultures. Respect the right of others to have their beliefs as you too seek respect.
As this is a surf forum, talk surf. Provide boards to needy kids regardless of their beliefs. Then you are being self-less and kind. No strings bro.
Why not? We certainly talk about all other manner of nonsense on here...
Free speech is great until we decide that others aren't allowed to speak freely simply because we don't like what they're saying.
This reminds me of the famous Martin-Niemöller quote about the lack of action among German intellectuals against the NAZIs:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

If there were really no place for a topic/thread on a forum, it would likely be one that repetitively gets posted yet remains unanswered and becomes an incessant back fill of self-bumps. Considering Wayne's threads are in ESPN's Top 10 of the day/week every time he throws them up, the populace of SI is already tilting the scales of an unofficial poll far towards the threads belonging. This isn't even a personal opinion, it's a simple observation of the board's behavior and tendencies, and actions speak louder than words.
Also, it would be very time-consuming to list all the other political topics that frequent the forum. Wayne's aren't the only ones and not by a long shot.

I don't believe in the story of jesus in all accuracy at this point in my life (not that i don't want to), but if you've caught a wave and had those awesome sessions that are like no other, you have to believe it's a gift from god, lets go spirtuality/religion/surf talk
