    Also, their wrenches are in the shape of a penis. The important question is why do they also hate women?

    No, that means they like women, because women like penis.

    Frame Alignment Gage.. Hmm ***. Nothing wrong with that. Rather call it FAT Frame Aligment Tool? Then again is i gage or tool? Gages measure to tool move or hold. Does it align?

    I find it hard to believe that someone could actually think that they were initialing their tool to target fags.If it bothers you that much why don't you quit using their tools i'm sure it will devastate them when they notice their enormous sales loss you caused.And if anything what is wrong with a company having some morals I use park tools and have always liked their tools now I will have a extra encouragement when purchasing one.

    Tossing around bible quotes generally has very little to do with morals, my friend.

    I am certain you are on to something here.... the idea that a bike tool company would create a subliminal message to bicyclists everywhere.... so now a small handful of people, bonded by riding bicycles will be subliminally told that gays are bad mmmmkay.

    No, scratch that, I am becoming a fairly avid cyclist, and had NO idea such a tool even existed, so I'm to guess that a VERY small portion of the cycling population will get this message.


    Yeah, no... can't stretch that far.

    I like this thread lol.
    I personally have never trusted anybody that isn't a Christian. I will choose to purchase a product from a Christian, or at least an ethical person, over somebody that isn't.

    I love how the OP has disappeared.

    And I love tools. In fact, check my custom user title: I ride with tools!

    I imagine something more along the lines of...

    One Monday morning at the Park Tool Headquarters

    John: We finished the new tool!
    George: Excellent, what's the acronym?
    John: Well, it's a Frame Alignment Guide, uh oh, we can't create this tool!
    George: Nonsense, why would be break habit, tradition, or lose money over something as naive as the initials on our tool.
    John: Good point, any mature adult would overlook this coincidental matter instead of cast hateful blame.

    Years later...

    Subject: The Dark Side of Park Tools?

    Ha! That's a good point. A tool that says "tool" on it could be offensive to tools. Just like "fat" could be offensive to fat people. Everything's offensive. Even "Park" could isolate those people that don't have one nearby. Nipples? Don't go there. Rubber? Promotes safe sex. What has this world become?

    So you accept that there can be ethical people that are not Christians? Then is it a stretch to assume that ethical people can be trustworthy too? Even when they are not Christians? I might suggest you think about what you write a little more carefully, then you might actually open your mind a little to the fact that not all good people are Christians, and not all Christians are good people... this thread is therefore pointless, but I think we knew that a long time ago!

    1) I know a Christian is ethical. A true Christian, anyway.

    2) I obviously believe that not all good people are Christian, given that I just said that in the quote you quoted. Not that I need to justify anything to you, but I know I can trust a true Christian. I need to get to know a non-Christian before completely trusting them. I also need to get to know Christians before trusting them, too, since not all "Christians" are truly Christian. It's sort of like saying I prefer a doctor to give me medical advice over somebody that isn't, because the title is comforting, even though a non-doctor may be perfectly qualified.

    3) A Christian that isn't a good person isn't much of a Christian.

    4) If this thread was pointless, why are you posting here?

    But can you now at least trust someone who is not Christian? Maybe... just a little?...? That would be a start! And it would also bring this thread into the realms of relevance if someone managed to change their behavior/belief for the better...
    It's all Here. Now.

    Why not both?

    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.
