    Well, yeah. The intent was never anything other than a declaration of what they are.

    Witnessing tool?

    Are you kidding? I am a Christian. Recently my brother gave me a car. It had the fish on it. Not long after getting the car home, I took the fish off and I have not had a fish on any of my cars before nor will I afterward. Why? Well, when I get cut off and I let loose a single fingered salute or some other tirade, the last thing in the world I want the guy to see as I speed off is the fish that is supposed to represent my faith in Jesus Christ.

    My witnessing tools are my life, my reputation, and my knowledge of the Bible. Dont need bumperstickers to show that I am a Christian. If you spend 2 minutes with me and cant figure it out then I need to check myself.

    Not when I meet someone in person. I am not one to beat someone over the head with a bible but ask me how I am doing and I will tell you how the Lord has blessed me then politey invite you to church. If someone has questions about the bible or the Lord I will answer.

    Like I have said on this board many times we are the light of the Lord people should be attracted to the light not repeled by it.
