I am thrilled to see craftiness being used to make a statement.  I have my own strong political beliefs and have yet to come up with a clever way to express them in my crafts. 

I had such a strong reaction to the stencil at first.......I really didn't like it.  But as I thought more about it, I felt less put off by it and instead increasingly sad b/c it reminds you of the all that have lost thier lives in this war.  That is an image that will really stay with you.

I do understand the women thing. I'll think about it, but I think the message is quite clear as it is Smiley

it has nothing to do with cowardice, and the "censorship" isn't selective, as we have removed posts from both conservative and liberal points of view.  This isn't a political site, it's a crafting site. We respect all points of view, and remove posts that do not respect all points of view.
If you want to argue politics, go to a site designed for that purpose...Beeosh I am stunned that you, of all people would have a problem undertanding this, considering you were one of the people who complained so vehemently that Craftster was getting away from it's original purpose...CRAFTS. That's all that we ask that you keep in mind, there are people here, young and old left and right, gay and straight. We would like to keep it comfortable for all people to post, not just those who see things from one side. Personal politics aside, we are here to support eachother, make suggestions for improvement, and encourage creativity....why would that make anyone upset?
Truly, if we were the censorship nazis or, cowards, for that matter, this thread would have been completely removed. All of the mods come from extremely different political backgrounds, and we all agree that politics have no place here. Expressing your views through your craft is great and completely encouraged. Alienating people through rude and devicive posts is not. Can you see where I am coming from?

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.
