His heavy-handed Christian non-sense has always bothered me.

But the toothpick incident and how he denied it really rubbed me the wrong way.

On the other hand, I can't see him losing the title anytime soon.

It's the same as being allowed to express your dislike for a fighter being Muslim and kneeling toward Islam to pray in a given moment, or for being black, or Mexican, or for thanking his dead father who is coaching him from heaven. Todd Keuneke called a Muslin fighter a terrorist once. His right to express his feelings? Our rights ends up where others rights begin. When you freely express yourself like that against someone's core belief, you are being rude not to the fighter, but to fellow posters who may share this beliefs in God in the first place. Religion is as serious matter as speaking of someone heritage, country or somebody's mother. It's a no go zone if we are to coexist respectfully and since that has zero relevance in MMA we should drop it, as already officially requested by the mods.

Yes, but I believe in Jesus too and I'm insulted whenever Bendo expresses his belief that Jesus H gave him the strength to kick the shit out of some poor sod. What about fellow posters who share my beliefs? Is it not rude to listen to that contradictory nonsense?

This is why Bendo will never be a big draw. He's annoying. It doesn't actually matter what you or I think as individuals... the fact is that he annoys quite a few people. This cant be denied. I dislike every facet of Bendo. Hair. Wings. Style. Doing stupid Jay-Z illuminati symbols. That fecking horrible grin... and fecking post fight "god loves me" interviews.

Twat.

Religion is probably the reason why Bendo is unpopular, does that make it fair or just? No, but it's the way it is, and it's the topic of the conversation. Sooj is spot on, we should have every right to discuss this as long as you don't begin insulting other members for their beliefs.

That's not the main reason for my dislike for Benson though, I really can't stand the self righteousness that he displays and when he said that smokers are "less intelligent" he painted a whole giant group of people with one ugly coloured brush.

By the way, saying "God doesn't exist" is a proverbial slap in the face to a religious person.

Saying "God does exist"(in terms of organised religion) is a proverbial slap in the face to any person that believes in Darwin's theory of evolution. This implies that the FACTS that are found in science are lies and that is incredibly disrespectful.

Just for the record: Not defending Bendo's beliefs in any way, but ppl tend to direct their hate for his speeches toward God and Jesus, stating those beings don't exist then the sh!t normally hits the fan over the threads.

It's a very interesting debate actually. Lots of ideas to exchange. Maybe a specific thread would be more appropriate, so only ppl who would be voluntaries would participate.

A well spoken, clean cut, Christian? How the **** do you get more marketable than that in the US?
