It is absolutley okay for the OP to believe in whatever faith / God / system / religion he adheres to. It is 100% right that he should have the freedom to live according to his beliefs, as long as those beliefs do not infringe on anyone else's freedoms to live as they choose. I just think that this is an inappropriate venue to raise the issue of religion in.
The topic is a more inflamatory than most others, and tends to polarise people. If there is sufficient interest among the participants here, perhaps they could set up a separate forum for Christians who cruise and like to debate amongst themselves about whether a cloth-bound or vinyl-bound Bible is preferable in a salt-water environment.
I just take issue with the topic being raised in the "Cruising" forum, as the OP was not asking about Cruising, but was asking about whether others engaged in proselytizing when they arrived in foreign countries.
I think it would be just as unsuitable if someone were to post a thread asking if anyone else covered their significant other in Russian Dressing and beat them with a loaf of French bread, once the anchor was set.
Either way - if it floats your boat go for it - but understand it's an ancillary activity that appeals to a very select few and can raise the ire of many others, so please, don't share !
