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.
No one is saying that this topic is forbidden, the question was asked by Wayne-so now all are free to speak their opinion about whether or not we want Jesus threads. Hardly Nazi-ism. Opinions should probably be given without disrespecting other peoples beliefs, but that is not a requirement.

Yes, by all means. How about a Jesus vs. Chuck Norris poll? Because neither one needs a board to catch waves - they just stand on the water in the lineup waiting for the set wave-of-the-day, and when it comes, turn around, calmly walk until they've matched speed with the wave, then surf on the soles (souls?) of their feet.
Also, Jesus vs. Gautama Buddha. GB rips on a bully surfboard, but can also surf boardless (remaining in the full lotus position on the beach, he surfs the waves in his head in his enlightened state).
I am seriously not mocking any religion or belief system. Humans have never done anything mockworthy.
Sure, you can talk about it. I'm going to do my thing as a free American and say that you are a nut job. What's your deal, man? I think it's known that if anyone wants some jeebus to go your way. Go surfing or something. JESUS!
Lets not forget Moses and history's longest tube ride ( The Red Sea).
Even if I do not agree, and think someones comments do not belong, no one is forcing me to read it. I can turn off the radio, the TV, the computer, and just dream of large perfect surf. With long lulls so I can paddle out with my hair dry. And only a couple of friends out so I can prove it happened. And there is nobody preaching their faith out there, or preaching on the beach.
But live and let live. Every one is entitled to express themselves. Thank God...oh no I said it again...I don't have to listen.
Floridasurfdog, YOU SHOULD go on religious sites and just start talking aboot surfing. Just pop up on some message board and start talking about NSP popouts and how that last swell was. That's good stuff right there.
Hey I've noticed an increase in the "Hey Zues" thang. That's my thing. I have it trademarked. Y'all owe me a dollar for each time you use it.
Now, I can't reveal this because it would make life too easy for y'all, and you wouldn't learn what you are supposed to from this life's journey.....
But God is for real.
Yeah, yeah some Darwin chump and a big bang.....and we're the only intelligent beings in the entire solar system, and we evolved and nothing else did, and we are so special and we just appeared on this planet for no reason, and we watch American Idol nowadays to demostrate our sophistication............yeah yeah.........
Just trust me. There's an afterlife. So just remember that when you paddle out next to me and there's hundreds of yards of empty peaks around. Jesus hates crowds and republicans.
