    Default glfwda and religion

    would it be wrong for glfwda to take part in a religious holiday event?

    would this be offensive some members?

    what if it was for a religion other than your own, would that change your feelings?

    My feeling is hey, whatever... If I don't like your religion, then I just won't come or volunteer....

    We all share a similar interest...Jeeps.
    I would leave it at that.

    edit: meaning if it has a Jeep involved, count me in (if its up here in the north).

    I guess I would need more detail. Since I am a Christian, I would only partake in a Christian holiday. That said, I still think there is a point where I still may choose to decline.

    I would need more details before commenting.
    Does it involve mixing wheeling with a church function ?

    ugh, I'm not so much for the bible thumpers. I'm all for some sort of thing that helped wheelers, but not for promoting a certain religion.



    Frankly, I don't see where GLFWDA and religion is connected so I would say no.

    you never know what will help the association sometimes?

    unfortunatly the opposite is true also!

    Ok, I have recieved slightly more info so I'll post this to clarify my first post.

    I don't feel it is right for GLFWDA to approach any religious group for any type of event. That is not what we do, and I'm betting GLFWDA is represented by many different religions so we should never approach any one group.

    On the other hand, if we were approached by a group, whether it be a religious group or any other type of group, and asked to participate in an event that would be positive PR for the association then I believe we should try as long as it doesn't step on any others toes.

    Basically, if the KKK came to us and wanted us to help support a white power cause then no, but if a group came and asked us to help with a parade as mentioned then it could be positive PR for us and maybe a bit of fun too!.

    I just wanted to point that out. My first thread was a bit too black and white which is never the case.
