I don't see what he's saying at all. Perhaps it's his choice of words that's bothering me.

I understand ANY fish or aquarium related ads on this site but a christian dating service?! c'mon that's just silly and kind of pathetic. I hope you (Marcos) have some sort of say as to what ads google puts up here.
"Silly" and "pathetic" are a very poor choice of words, and reflect an extreme prejudice - which I don't like to see. When I see an objection to an ad from a commercial lender, then I'll believe this statement:

Before anyone jumps down my throat, it would be just as bad if it were a buddhist dating service, an ad for a mortgage lender or penis pills as they have nothing to do with the content on this site at all.
Right now it just seems like there's an objection to the idea of "Christian."
There's nothing much to worry about, though - as Marcos says, they are sure to move on.

^^lol.. I was trying to tip-toe around blasting it for it's Christian affiliation in my original post, I made comment because of its lack of cohesiveneness for this site. Now that you have brought it up though, I am/was actually offended that it segregates against non-christians. What if I wanted to find love online? Where would I go, whatever shall I do?

I suppose with some deep thought I can understand the desire some people might have to find others of the same belief system to date although I personally find it silly, especially in Christianity as Jesus' main message (IMO), seemed to be one of tolerence and love which you would think would make this segregated ad supreme nonsense.

I suppose if you WANTED to go on a Christion dating site, you could. I'm sure there's a dating site for everyone. I have never thought it was OK to blast anyone for their religious beliefs. I especially dislike condescending attitudes towards others' religions. I am Christian, and my boss is Jewish, and guess what? We get along wonderfully.

I am confused... where's the prejudice in the OP?

seems silly to make such a big deal of this. he was asking why there are silly ill suited ads on a fishkeeping site. seems fair.

No one is making a "big deal" out of it. if you're confused, that's too bad. I found it pretty easy to follow. Rolling Eyes

Deborah & Heather- I never blasted anyone's religious beliefs nor did I make any condescending remarks about them, if you chose to read into them that way, seek help. Don't try to villify me. You may just have too much free time on your hands, try a hobby.. I hear fishkeeping is nice.
