While I understand the reaction (and am not a practicing Christian) it is puzzling how many have spoken out rather vehemently on this and let the bigotry and racism etc. just slide by on other threads.
I don't find others who want to share their faith threatening...just annoying. Racists, bigots and other extremists are a much larger concern.

Many of us are Captain Morgan drinkers and were given the Great Commandment to Go Into all the world and share the good news about Captain Morgan's. It is so much fun and enjoyable to share Captain Morgan's with someone who if you did not share would never hear. This is not just the alcoholic's or drunkard's job, its all Captain Morgan's drinkers. Or just going to a national chain that has a bar where you are anchored can be rewarding and a great way to share your faith with others. Having a Captain Morgan's party and drink recipe study on your boat with other boaters where you are anchored. Visiting with other Captain Morgan's drinkers in nationals homes. When Captain Morgan drinkers meet other Captain Morgan drinkers, even when they don't speak the same language, it is like meeting family.

I lived in San Juan for two years and went to Baccardi's "Bat Works"
We could buy rum quite cheap there(no import tax)...the high dollar "Dark Rums" were but 8 bucks a quart. We did the "spiced fruit" thing with the watermellons many weekends...

See what ? Big weekend, somewhat hungover. Heart is just not into Christian bashing this morning.

Mind you Cam is on the money. It's amazing how some of us (mea culpa) get all hot and bothered by religious nutters who are simply annoying yet ignore some of the worse excesses of hatred that popo up now and then. Well said Cam.


ps - me reckon it does qualify as SPAM.

Well, I for one have faith in cruising.

Oh ... my ... god.

Can I just say say I love you guys? What a great bunch of responses. Heartwarming, truly heartwarming, and I mean that from the black pits of my atheistic heart.

I promise to crucify a couple of nuns and a brace of priests on the morrow.

OK ?
