So you admit you're trying to sell us your religion?

Uh, friend, who was accusing anybody of trying to blow anybody's faith away? I was agreeing with The one who had originally posted the work. Your reading of my post was perfunctory at best.

I think this is the wrong place for religious stuff.

Why would God have no place in the GPL community?

I'm pretty offended too for any religious stuff. I don't like to see anxious people
trying to conquer new clients for its own cult.

Your god, which doesn't deserve a better place than any other god, is not GPL. He demands your ethernal commitment to the cause of fundamentalism and your soul as proof of loyalty: Just like Microsoft stuff.

I don`t post atheist wallpapers here because I don`t want to hurt anybodys feelings. I think this has to do with respect for each other.
I feel offended by religious stuff.

If we didn't post anything that would offend someone, we wouldn't be able to post much of anything. Sorry, but this is a wallpaper, in the wallpaper section. Don't like it, don't download it.

Thanks for all of you who have come out of the woodwork to back me up, now for those of you who don't like it, we all heard your whining, now go away and do something productive. If all you want to do is voice your opinion, I have heard it. But it doesn't change the fact that I will be posting more wallpapers here like this. Now if that is all I am kinda tired of responding to these things, it's half past midnight were I live, so if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

Yeah, you know what, there are several satanic works on this site, like ubuntu satanic edition themes and wallpapers. So stop ranting and raving at me and go bug someone else.

Stuff from Ubuntu Christian Edition is here as well. From what I've seen, I think U.S.E. was a kind of response to the creation of U.C.E. Frankly I'd rather not see either one.

Then I would think what you should do is contact the admins of this site with your objection rather than offending people with your lack of tolerance for those people who wish to see this sort of content.

I just postet my opinion and my feelings about this. I think there are better sites for wallpapers like this. This wallpaper is not a bit related to Gnome or Linux.

And neither are wallpapers that have trees and blades of grass, have you protested those as well?

I don't think this should be removed, but I do feel the need to say I don't like it, and to point it out for what it is. For the most part this stuff just disappears into obscurity anyway. It's kind of telling that there are only 20 or so downloads and over 30 comments. I totally support freedom of speech, and if I posted something with a slogan like "Religion Kills", I would expect it to start discussion, and to have a lot of dissenting opinions to deal with. Now, since I don't like to push controversial opinions on a partially unwilling audience, I restrain myself from posting things like that. I'm now using my freedom of speech to politely request that you do the same. If you don't want to take my advice, fine, you can do whatever you want. May I suggest that you at least post this on a christian website as well? You'll get tons of adulation for making it, which I think would be good for your self esteem, mood, etc. I'm sure you'll see that it's a far more rewarding experience to have a totally appreciative audience.

Really?

"I think this has to do with respect for each other.

I feel offended by nude stuff, yet you don't seem to care. Tell me again, WHO is trying to push WHAT message? Trying to block a message is pushing a message as well.

This is a wallpaper many, including myself, enjoy. Neutrality is not taking sides; removing all sides, even if it were possible, is taking a side.

"What would you think about images which contain messages like "satan rules", "allah is great", "Ganesha owns em all" or "there is no god, atheism is the only way"?"

I would think that they have just as much a place here as this wallpaper.

Yeah, nudity is indeed alright because there is no message.
I don`t want anybody to "spread there word" out here, no muslims, christians, buddhists or atheists.

What would you think about images which contain messages like "satan rules", "allah is great", "Ganesha owns em all" or "there is no god, atheism is the only way"?

Crying to the admins because something offends you is a spineless thing to do, and to me almost seems like an attack of free expression, which is something I support. I would much rather state my opinion about this piece in a public forum, as I would encourage you or anyone else who may disagree with me to do. I am stating my opinion, so that the poster of this content sees that it is not the appropriate place for it. I think others will continue to do the same. I would never want to force someone not to post such things, but I see nothing wrong with telling them that I don't like it, so they make the right choice themselves in the future.

So what the two of you are saying is that nudity on this site(which offends) is alright but inspirational material is not?

Again, if you are truly offended, email the admins and have this content removed, otherwise don't click on the link.

Blades of grass don't offend people, but religion does. I'm sorry, but to me and anyone else who doesn't care for religion, it's like seeing advertising or spam. You are trying to push a message that not everyone wants to hear. If you want to push that message there are sites dedicated to such things.

Landscape wallpapers are included in many operating systems.
And they contain no political or religious statement. They are part of the theme.
It`s about the look.
