Hey guys, i just read the thread about southpaw wondering if there were other gay bassists on TB etc. What i noticed very quickly is that many people thought it was necessary to bring their judgmental religious beliefs into the discussion. I really wish religious people would keep their views to themselves on TB (and in general). I am a dedicated vegan for over the last 10 years and an apiring Buddhist so its not that i dont hold strong beliefs. I just dont think they have any place here. Political issues are not tolerated (i once had a signature that said "George W. Bush Sucks" before the election, and i was very quickly asked by three mods to change it). So why should people be allowed to have preachy religious signatures? Or posts which contain such sentiments as "you're lifestyle is wrong but jesus loves you anyway." Who has the right to judge? I know its difficult to moderate such things and, in general, the mods do an excellent job, but I dont think its cool to let religious dudes preach to the rest of us.. no matter how subtlely its done. I love TB and i truly enjoy reading the posts and learning so much about bass and music. Thanks for putting up with my rant.
