When I click on download it goes to a different picture? The preview looks very nice though. Hope this gets fixed. Keep up the good work - j

ps - This is no more preaching than the preaching of worldliness portrayed through pictures of naked women for backgrounds.

It seems that you left a space in the filename which is breaking the download link to the file. You need to re-upload it without any spaces in the file name.

The truth is I never said I am not preaching, if I can win someone to Christ then excellent, but that was not my original intent. No there are not thousands of sites dedicated to this stuff, one hundred at the most, and most of them are not of high quality, or they don't allow you to post your own work. I wanted to make stuff that can be used under the GPL license and not worry about it, I want to upload stuff that is of good quality and without any excess licensing attached while still keeping credit for my work. I don't see why you all have such an issue with it, I also uploaded this stuff on KDE-look and users just give it a rating and pass on.

And the survey says (google search):
Results 1 - 10 of about 1,730,000 for christian wallpaper. (0.07 seconds)

You were saying?

If you actually look through those results you will find that most of them are either bogus or not worth the time.

Even if only 0.1% are good sites that leaves you with 1,730 other more appropriate sites to chose from. Don't insult my intelligence by claiming there isn't a better place for this.

Maybe you should post your sales pitch on a site where people want to hear that sort of thing?

Sales pitch? I am not selling anything, if you don't like it then back off, and don't download it. Go rant and rave about something else, like the injustice being done to those who share there work for others of the same faith to enjoy. And as for my God being an "imaginary friend", you try telling him that on judgment day.

How can you threaten me and then claim you're not selling anything? If you really just wanted to share something with your christian buddies, there are thousands of sites dedicated to that, where you can share your faith in peace. You posted this here to preach, quit lying to yourself.

This is a wallpaper site, and this is a wallpaper. I do not see why there should be segregation of wallpapers. Should there also be one site for wallpapers showing grass, and another for wallpapers showing nude women, and another for wallpapers showing water?

All kinds of wallpaper goes here. If you find it offensive, you don't have to download or use it; nobody is forcing you.

Fine, I don't want him to take it down anyway. But I do want to expose the fact that this is an attempt to preach, and that for many of the members of this site it constitutes an unwelcome and intrusive message. The religious establishment has become increasingly more vocal in recent years, and if they are going to preach by posting this wallpaper, I think it's my duty as a free thinking person to "counter-preach" in the comments. If the poster doesn't want a negative response, they should post where such content is universally welcome. I would like to add that there are far more Christian based theme sites than there are Gnome based sites, by a very large margin. If this was something other than a wallpaper, I would be far less critical, but it's not like it's related to Gnome in any way. Anybody with 5 minutes and some very basic Gimp skills could put bible quotes on someone elses wallpaper for their personal purposes. I often modify wallpapers that I use, sometimes adding text that I like, but I don't share small modifications like that. The fact that this person felt the need post someone elses wallpaper with the mere addition of a bible quote makes it blatantly obvious what the intent was here. The moral of this story is: don't preach if you don't want to hear someone refute you.
