Christian Propaganda
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Dec 18, '01 09:23:58PM

I tried this program back when I was running OS 8.6 and stopped using it the first time the box popped up on Sunday with a Bible quote. I don't care what other people's religions are, but I disapprove of forcing it on others! It's a shame too, because they are OK programs. Does the OS X version still do this?

Sunday bible quotes?!?!!!

I set my system clock to Sunday, and yes indeed, it spewed bible quotes. I had no idea the program did this. When I first tried this app in MacOS 9, I hit the About Box and I threw it in the trash immediately, so I never knew.

I am prepared to spend a bit of time hacking this program to remove the bible quotes, just to thwart this idiot's stealth-prosletyzing scheme. It appears the quotes are hardcoded, it may be impossible to prevent the popup but it might be possible to replace them with something less offensive if they're in plaintext in a resource somewhere. But this hack is going to be tougher. I think I'll just throw it in the trash, where it belongs.
