Similarly, I've always wondered about Julio Jones. Shouldn't it be pronounced Hoolio Hones? Or Julie-oh Jones. Can't be Hoolio Jones, its very inconsistent.

If someone pronounced it with a hard G, I would assume they were saying 'Gift' since its so close to that.
If you pronounce the (t) in gift there is no mistaking GIF for gift.

Now on to a more important theological(soft g) argument(hard g). Was eating(soft g) an apple or sex, the original(hard g) sin?

I didn't know that the creator insists that "jif" is what he intended. I suppose that's pretty compelling, but I always have said it with the hard g. The g in the acronym comes from graphical and you don't say "jraphical" when you're pronouncing that, so it always made sense to me to say gif with the hard g.

I used to say JIF... but I'm now in the hard G camp,

The G in GIF is for the word Graphical. If it was for a word with a soft G, I would continue using JIF.

I'm definitely in a very small minority. I pronounce it as G-I-F. After all, it's not really a word. In my opinion, it would be like asking people how they pronounce PDF.
