    We have businesses that go out of their way to make sure you know they are religious. Christian Brothers Automotive, Joes Christian Garage Doors, etc. Other places just put the little fish symbol in their ads. I don't remember seeing this anywhere else.

    My reaction with these places is the same as when I see a place like Honest John's Used Cars. I think just the opposite. John isn't honest and joe isn't going to treat me like a Christian.

    Anywhere else see this or is it a deep south thing?

    I call on 250+ businesses and not a single one has a "Christian" name.

    I've been to a lot of cities and i never noticed any that were particularly religious. i can see that in texas though. the old school Texans are a breed apart.

    I know this might sound ridiculous, but is it possible that "Christian" is their surname?

    Gwartney seems to be a Texan so he's allowed to make threads about Texas.

    Like the blacks using the n word.

    Don't see much of that around here. If "Christian" was on a business name or proudly displayed I'd choose to spend my $$$$ elsewhere.
