I appreciate your weighing in on the subject. I know that the two subjects are closely intertwined. I have no problem when it is occasionally thrust into a thread. If a thread starts religious in nature I don't say a word no matter where the thread is located. The problem as you said is when it is thrust into a thread that has nothing to do with religion. I guess I just thought that if someone complained enough that the worst offenders would at least try to cut back or limit the issue. That is not the case. It has gotten worse. Thrusting religion into a thread is one thing but outright chastising members for their beliefs is wrong.
A man without a stick will get bitten, even by sheep.
