Let's also be mindful of the sin of using other people's work to express a faith they don't hold. Now, I'm not one to get worked up over religious debates. As a garden-variety modern atheist, I'm generally happy to let other folks think whatever they want to. I don't argue against religion. I don't fear it or reject it. I don't mind attending weddings at churches, and even bow my head during prayer out of politeness. Many of my best friends and big chunks of my family are christians, and they're all great people. That said, knowing that someone downloading FlightGear gets this document dropped next to it gives me the willies. I'm fine if Arthur wants to spread The Word himself. I'm very much *not* fine with him stapling the pamphlet to a copy of YASim and Nasal. FlightGear belongs to all of us. It shouldn't be a vehicle for views that aren't shared by the community as a whole. While the GPL allows Arthur to distribute FlightGear any way he wants, including this file is neither polite nor appropriate.
