No, some Christians are bailing on GoDaddy because of the ads. Many of us just don't care.

A whole lot of Christians are not Fundamentalist Christians who want to control your life and dictate your morals. Unfortunately, the sane ones don't get nearly as much press.

Well, if a person's Christianity doesn't affect others, then it doesn't really matter to others that they're a Christian, does it? Someone trying to control my life is exactly the sort of thing I'd want to hear about, if it's happening. :)

There are many ways to affect others. You can help them, comfort them, share with them, remind them that not all Christians are fundamentalists, ...

I don't think you have to be a fundamentalist to have a problem with companies that run sexually suggestive advertising on programs that children are watching.

I disagree. I don't know if you have kids, but mainly, they find nudity very funny.

I'd much rather my kids see a pair of boobs, than see a guy shooting another guy with a gun, which for some reason seems to be totally acceptable.

I respect your decision, I don't think you're harming your kids in any way, but I've made a different decision about how to raise mine. Swearing, yes. A boob or two? Maybe. Overt sexuality? No.

I'm not 100% sure I found the right youtube video of the advert... (hulu is flat out countriest), but it sounds like either kids won't get the sexual references, or will just see it as funny nude people :/

It's a tough call for parents though...
