    As a fellow Christian, this never even crossed my mind. Reason: super conservative Christians will call anything a sin to get more attention, and if you look through the literature of many Christians, or even through the Bible (OMG, I got to use my own for once... take THAT study groups who insist on online programs that highlight the verses your group leader is covering ahead of time!), you never find anything regarding furriness- unless it's that general message that God finds everything beatiful (think of The Shack, and God listening to Death Metal to break up the stigma that the main character had) and loves everyone all the same for it. Of course, either the idea hadn't been thought of yet, or in biblical times it was considered an insanity not worth mentioning... but my guess goes to the former, as we hear about insanity, disease, and other things that make one unclean, but aside from bestiality (sp?) animals are never mentioned- and we all know that MOST furries are not interested in that type of thing (every group has it's black sheep... even groups where the metaphorical white sheep are sometimes black sheep in character).

    EDIT: I just realized this passed a long time ago... and I hate catching up because it causes things like this. Sorry anyway

    No, thank you for thinking about this. I really needed to know the answer. Thank you.
    And apparently, I'm not the only Christian furry here. Lol

    I get roasted all the time by my friends for being in this fandom, lol. Good thing the only people who know about us are memelords, and memelords aren't exactly in a place in which they can judge other weird internet subcultures.

    I highly recommend you all to come out as a furry to your parents and classroom and neighbors. Print of the porn and pass it out. Be loud n proud! :')

    Unless you watch the damn TV all day for your entire life, then you've heard plenty of weird ass shit about the fandom that may or may not be true

    Freshmen, wear this on the first day, and the ladies will be lining up to meet you.

    Just make sure you know how to out-football the football team. Then you can do whatever TF you want...

    In high school I had a shirt kind of like this and I had soooo many people wanting to be my friend/boyfriend. Got a lot of sex out of it too

    You are a very lucky man, lol. I mean I have a gf, but no because I wore a shirt like that lol.
    Now I REALLY want to wear that shirt to see what would happen, especially since I'm in a IT (computers) shop at my school so basically it's meme and cancer central everyday.
    RIP Skins! (I can't believe I just said "RIP Skins", lol)

    Well statistically speaking your friend isn't wrong...according to surveys and most sets of data about the fandom, the majority of the fandom is either gay, lesbian, or bisexual/pansexual. Autism is also significantly more common in the fandom than the general population. but it's not really a bad thing, if anything this fandom has made me so much more confident than I was last year, to the point where I'm even going out to job interviews and stuff. (a near impossible task last year) I'm breaking down so many of the walls I caged myself in with (pun not intended) and getting a lot more social and outgoing again. This fandom has certainly changed my life and that's not something I would ever call a bad thing. personally I think your friends are jealous that we are unapologetically ourselves and don't care what people think of that.

    I totally agree with you on that, and I'm really glad that this forum (even though I've only been on it for like one day, lol) helped you socially and mentally in society. This is what true furry fandom is, helping out other furs who just need someone to talk too and share their interests and ideas.
    I love every single one of you, and nothing will ever change that. I made more friends in a day on this site then I did this entire school
    Seriously, this is what the fandom, or at least the forum should be. A place for people to just be themselves, to relax and just have fun.
    So on that note, everyone.....furries are the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm honored to say that each and every one of you contribute to this site.
    Thank you all! XD

    Pros of wearing such a shirt: Lots of sex, people know you are a Furry.
    Cons of wearing such a shirt: ???? None that I can think of.

    Though probably won't be such a good idea if you're a straight guy though. :p
    Well, there's a difference between owning who you are and going around what could be considered advertising/shouting who and what you are.

    It's on you if you say you are a Furry and people react negatively to it, not the people reacting. They might've not wanted to hear it in the first place. Be sure that the ones you tell you are a Furry to that they won't react in a negative way.

    Heck no! Here's another example of Christians needing to speak out.

    Okay, but seriously, people need to see this.

    Your parents will NOT care if you're a furry....

    as long as you don't show them how much you spent on your fursuit ;)

    As much as I would love to agree with you, I can't. Personally, I know my mom won't give a crap. But I know how some parents are. They treat it like a "sickness". As awful as that sounds :/

    So I can understand why some people may want to keep it to themselves.
