Rather than hijack one of the many prayer threads, here's a new one. Seems to me that "Back Yard Chickens" is rapidly becoming "Back Yard Fundamentalist Proselytizing". I don't think anyone minds an occasional reference to any religion, and most of us actively enjoyed the token Moslem that we had for a while, but ... A poster in another thread claimed that people who "want to pray and praise God" are being harassed. I feel more like people who want to learn about chickens are being annoyed with an overdose, like sitting on an airplane next to a Jehovah's Witness when you just want to read a book. If there were a few threads here about, say, Romanesque architecture, no one would mind them and some would enjoy them. But if they became a huge percentage of the total threads, and folks were very intolerant of any dissenting opinions, the subject would grow old and seem inappropriate for a chicken forum. Discuss amongst yourselves, I'll be right back.
