That would be the point of tolerance. 75% of the packages in Debian are of no
use to me, including the Bible packages. The Bible packages are definitely
useful to some people, so as long as those people continue to maintain the
package, it stays. The Bible packages are no more theistic propoganda than
the GNAT compiler is 'strong-typing' propoganda (strong typing GOOD, 
C++ BAD . . . um, sorry about that) - they're just tools that someone uses
to do what they want to do. It's better for us to be flexible than 
intolerant, because that way, we can all work together for a better Debian
rather than work against each other.
