ORIGINAL: Everyday Hunter
As I did not read the article I can't make any specific comments. However, what I can say is that I seek out and purchase publications like D&DH because I want to read about deer hunting. I support the right that everyone has to religious freedom but I have no interest in reading religious based articles in a deer hunting publication. I would seek out religious publications if that is what I was looking for.
It's smart to avoid specific replies when we haven't read the issue being discussed -- unlike certain politicians who are against a law that they've never read. But Bruce's reply implies something else that we should be on guard against.
To keep matters of faith out of other matters is an impossibility without interjecting the attitude that faith has no place in other areas of life. We can't pigeonhole issues so neatly. When a person seeks out religious publications, he's not doing it because he's interested in religion. He's doing it because he's interested in how faith intersects with life. Faith that doesn't intersect with life is irrelevant.
Zeke has given us some great food for thought, and that's one thing I look for in anything I read.
I would say that if one's religious convictions do not carry over into their public life, then they are not religious convictions at all.
