If you're pulling my leg, you got me.

The point is a distro aimed at Christians.  I honestly can't figure out
why that would be so difficult to grasp.  I have been pushing (for at
least 2 years) the idea of a GNU/Linux distro that is essentially
pre-configured with all of the software a church would need to get up
and running with Bible study, church management, and lyrics projection
software.  Educational software should be made available as well.  

The networking stuff should all just work out of the box, or at least
have the step-by-step instructions to configure whatever can't be

Ubuntu is the primary distro for the Libre Software Solution Stack
