Aw.... Just give it a few days and things will blow over. People will put their avatars back up, but I imagine more thought will be put into whether it's appropriate or not.

I could say the same thing that you are saying. If people like you vote in a manner to prevent these religious people from getting in (not saying that you are), then you too are influencing the government in America. You would be fighting for what you want, just as we (the moral crusaders) will fight for what we want. Either way, it's not a violation of seperation of church and state. As Mr. Shookie said, seperation of church and state is to prevent a church from controlling the government, NOT to suppress the rights of religious-minded citizens.

Besides, religion aside, it comes down to morals.

I feel that this is very true

Unfortunatly it is RC ralated as it is a Team Logo. Check the rules before making such a request. There is in no way a possion forced nor implied of force that should believe in what I do. I mearly manage a RC related Racing team that has a Logo with a cross that reflects that teams believes...you want to become a member than you have to follow the rules.. I am member of RC Tech and I try to follow all the rules stated..None of which are implied that my avitar should be removed....

If you are seious about being affended than go to every Christian based church and ask them to remove there cross first....
Thanks and have a blessed day... I will pray for you.
-Shookie <><
Lets not get started on a Church bashing festival...those threads died and so should this one....Once everyone follows the rules than we can ge tback to using this bandwidth for RC dessucions...
I am done....Attack me through PM so that no one has to endure another church bashing theme...Thank you.

I mean no disrespect Mr Shook, but don't you think your avitar and signature would be very insulting to a Hindu or a Jew? Do you even care if it is? The point is, why do you have the right to offend others, but the people you are offending don't have the right to offend you?

my point exactly...i didnt realize it was only a certain kind of offensive material that wasnt allowed??????and i am not offended by the cross in general but in here where i come to "talk about RC" not look at a cross and your religious signature.

Maybe we shouldn't have avatars if we can't grow up a little bit. It is plain stupid that some people can't recognize what is acceptable and what is not. What point are you trying to prove by putting a half naked girl on your avatar?? Let's have descent discussions about RC related items and keep this a family show.

You are going to find extremes in both sides. What it boils down to is like what one person said. Respect for others. I like the female form but you don't see me flaunting it in an avitar. I'm trying to Respect others views and keep this place from becoming just what this fight is all about. Dealing with people from all countries and their views on what is sexy and what is porn changes from country to country. I think people just have to realize that the internet is best policed by simple reasoning and not extremism.
There are going to be two options...Police yourself by respecting other's views and realize that what you put up could offend someone. And if it does, be man enough (not childish) to tone it down when asked. You were willing to take the chance knowing the consequences. Otherwise, expect the host of this site to crank down on it hardcore just so they can be seen as not tailoring to people who like to push the envelope.

Remember freedom stops at the other person's nose. Nuff said. If you cry about it because you don't like the rules, you can always leave. But don't cry when the rules get inforced because someone was stupid enough to push it too far.

let the flames begin...but please through PM as like I mentioned lets let this thread die...

If I have offended you I am truely sorry. But as the freedom of speech protects you as much as me...
AS far as my signature goes...
It says it is toward those who already believe in Jesus and not that you should i am not forcing nor implying you should believe.
Next my avitar is reflecting the nature of the Team I represent...Again not forcing you to believe or implying you should believe.
I mearly put it there to reflect the nature of the Team...As any logo would.
Now this is done...let it die......

THanks and have a blessed day.
