I'm not trying to be a wet blanket, but please don't use the public airwaves in an attempt to proselytize.

I agree 110% with Kirk. If you believe in God, thats fine, but nobody cares. Keep it to yourself

Nobody is being forced to go look at this group and if you do not like the concept or its "looks" then ignore it. Since you have no idea as to content or purpose of this group your attack is not only wrong but makes no sense! I wonder since I don't know either of you is it me or God that makes you so mad? Hmmmm....to both of you have a fine day and 73's!

Many of us have strong religious beliefs so your point is poorly taken and your inane deprecation of anyone's beliefs is insulting - just because you were reminded that this is solely a forum for the scanning hobby. We are strongly encouraged here to refrain from putting unpaid advertisements on the site; however well-intentioned. You owe the poster an apology for this breach of common Judeochristan tolerance and site etiquete. Begin to practice what you preach.

This was left on a site I moderate and I have removed it.I don,t beleive in putting things up about Religion or even Politics for that fact.It is not radio related,and It causes to many arguments.Just my own 2 cents.

I would take no offense to that. I don't take offense to this thread, but I don't think that the original poster was trying to make people become christians (Or i don't see it in the post anywhere).

From the looks of the link, my impression was that he intended to use amateur radio, among other things, to preach the word of Christianity.

From the yahoo site:
This Group is for Christians to utilize CB, Ham radio and other Communication means to spread the word of God. If you are a Christian and would like to use your hobby for Gods glory please join and help us out. We are primarily going to use CB and Ham radio but also shortwave radio, scanners and non-computer means to accomplish our goals. NO spamming, profanity, obscene comments or profiles or personal attacks - these will get a auto ban.! Welcome!

Now perhaps I'm misguided, but to me, "spreading the word of God" isn't about Christians rejoycing with Christians, it's about proselytizing. Attempting to convert others. This goes against the spirit of amateur radio, and will cause problems as sure as the racists on CB spouting their hate for minorities does.

I admit I'm curious how you'd use a scanner to spread the word of God, but if you're willing to ship me a BCD-996T, I'll read any religious messages you put in the box with it.

I wasn't trying to throw stones, and certainly didn't want to cause trouble. But when you post something like that in a public forum and ask for people to look at it, then expect comments. And while nobody is forcing me to subscribe to the group, please remember that if you start preaching on the air, then you ARE making yourself hard to ignore.

Christians are used to having a lot of arrows shot at them, but they never stand alone. Civility has been shown by Watchman, what you would expect from him.

Got a personal message from this clown. Guy does not practice what he preaches and states that his detractors in this thread all hate God. He is not worthy of further comment. I don't want these people knocking on my door nor giving me the "Get Right with God" here on the net. Like most of us, I am comfortable with my own beliefs and will not change for these "people".

As my old sig says.

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
