You know it's come to my attention that there are alot of conflicting views going on because of the topic of religion and subjects it ties into. I'm pretty sure me as a die hard but understanding follower of Christ has a couple times in the past made someone uncomfortable and or otherwise on this site before. So I feel like we should disclose this stuff now so everyone has a list of who's who.

I'm not here to try and convert any of you using this thread (unless you want me to, in which then I will PM u). I just would like to know so I can avoid making anyone uneasy.

Well for me, I am a confirmed Lutheran; though I prefer to follow my own ideals on some manners of how priests teach. For example. a lot of people at my church do not like heavy metal like Slipknot and or otherwise. I on the other hand love Slipknot and all it's awesomeness, yet I don't believe in the lyrics or take it as a hindrance to my faith. That is why I listen to it while others in my church don't.

Heres the deal pard.. Most of us, not all, couple of Jewish guys, couple of agnostics, couple who could care less.. but "most" of us are Christians.. I'm gona speak for the crew here, not cause i have any particular right to, but because if Sam ever said "hey i think we need a Chaplin" (this is NOT going to happen by the way) I would raise my hand in heart beat..

So heres the deal.. we absolutly do NOT talk about it.. Not because of lack of belief, but for a couple of reasons.. 1) were all real independent, and not good at being "preached to. 2) this is a gun site, i know we bs about everything in the world, but we do keep away from religion, as frankley this site also has some rough edged, pure Tstuff loaded Alpha males who like to look (a lot) and talk about women. 3) We are (this is absolute truth) honest guys, who don't pull punches when it comes to any subject, and injecting religion is a sure fired way to change the site (which is perfect as is) and cause all sorts of problems. 4) cause if its really serious, and it is to a lot of us, we dont wear it on our sleeve. 5) cause Sam will protect this site from "over prostelizing (sp!) and simply make it disapear..

I'm guessing you might be thinking "and this guy would be a chaplin"... YEP! heres why, and this will be the last comment on this.. Cause Symon you have stumbled on a site full of real men, bunch a Alpha males who have HONEST beliefs.. Maybe not into "orginized" religion my friend, but very much into what i believe the good Lord stood for.. Theres more real goodness, compasion, and honesty here than any other "man" site ive ever been on.. The same guys who use some pretty foul language, or spend a lot of time on "skin" (and our pres. has rules to make sure its not pure porn) are just a bunch of for real great guys who i'm pretty sure our good Lord would be proud of.. Stick around and get to know them and i can pretty well bet you'll come to the same conclusion. Proud of you for putting your beliefs out there, but promise you its better if we keep any other conversation on this to pm's..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

in Buck and the Preacher, with Sidney Poitier [Very big bible, because it was a long barrel Colt SA]

More to the point, I see no problem talking ABOUT religion, as long as there is no preaching or attempts to evangelize.

You have said what needed to be said, and said it very well.

We have all kinds of topics started and conversations that have degenerated (quite commonly) to myself, ebear, and nitris extolling the virtues of having intimate relations with animals. Religion is off topic, and this is an off topic area. I think it's fine to post this, and if someone doesn't want to participate because he or (in ebear's case) she doesn't think they can stay mature (yeah, right), then that person doesn't have to open the link. My religious view is that Jesus Christ is my lord and savior and died on the cross for my sins, and I will have to answer for my sins when I die, but organized religion founded by man is only useful for those weak individuals who need to be told how to live. A personal relationship with God includes me questioning him and sometimes yelling and flipping him the bird. I am very close to God, and I use the personality and free will he chose to grant me. If he punishes me for that, well, I'll have a long time to think about where I went wrong, won't I?

I know for a fact I said at least a couple of times, that the only real solution to the world's problems right now is to completely wipe out Islam...I am sure I mentioned this before...didn't I?

It matters not,

I am sure that we ALL will make our peace with whatever God we believe in, when the time comes, however as Pkato sugjests, the Islamic deal is at the top of my "shit list".

I'm an American and proud of it and I am sick and god damned tired of people dissing my country. You can be any damn religion you want and I don't care unless you try converting me or my family, or subvert my way of life with your beliefs, in which case I am going to demand that you get off my fucking lawn or face the consequences. Clear enough?

Good one Schuyler

I'm with you all the way on that. I don't care what religion, or color, or ethnicity or anything else somebody is if they just live their life and let me live mine. But if their religion involves fucking with my rights, or my life, I'll fuck them up.
