Hate Mail – I think?

I debated on whether or not I should post this email, because I really don’t want to give this person the satisfaction. However, I think it is important to illustrate the twisted mindset of the opposition we face.

Do I have your attention Mr Blogger dude???

Man dude – with all the problems in the world – THIS hate God vengence is your imp crusade in life?? Are you nine years old dude??? Please, God, let this blogger be just a mentally disturbed individual and not a “sane” product of society…

For instance, here is a list of the 12 World Problems…
http://www.mac.edu/faculty/richardpalmer/POSTMODERN/application.html

Pollution – of the air, the water, the soil. – do you really believe too many prayers are causing all the pollution? Do you drive a car or walk? Or do you just stay home all day and blog???

Removing every church, synogue, mosque, big budha statue, sticks and stones on every street corner will not rid the planet of all the nukes, dude! Are you on any strong medication when you post???

Population growth outstripping resources worldwide. I got an idea! Why not next time blog to rid all the Atheists in order to sacrafice our resources! Or, perhaps a little less intrusive to you atheists, let all of you be deported to your own little commune where you do not have to hear the mare mention of God – or Allah – or Jesus – or Big Budda! You can all enjoy your evolution stories together with never having to worry about that knock on the door from a Jehovah again!

Unequal distribution of financial resources – Now aside from the fat rich pope or the Arab Muslims and the wealthy Mega church preachers – most God believing people are not rich in fact most today in other countries are being martyred for their faith (and they dont even blog!) Most of the money sits in the hands of the Democrats who pretend to be for the little guy! I am still waiting to see of Pres Obama truly believes in spreading the wealth but I still have yet to receive a personal check from him in my mail box. (Are you rich, dude??) Maybe you should give to the poor in between posting your hatred of religious folks! You can give on the computer, you know, dude!

aNTISEMITISM (well, I guess you wouldnt be concerned there since they are “religious” at times. I hope you are not a fan of Hitler! He was into evolution and Darwinism too and hated the Jews. Where did you post you are from? New York? I hope all the jews take cover from your posting finger!

And as an American – are you so clueless about the nation’s current woes??? And you blame it on religion? Dude! Are you serious??? I bet you didnt give one dime to Haiti, huh, dude! How could you when you are so busy posting the world is coming to and end over God lovers?! You must feel so imp, dud!! Do you sign internet autographs?? I mean, move over Pres Obama and give this dude his due earings of your peace award!!

Dude!! You really need to get a life and stay out of others’ lives! What a perfect world that would be if everyone followed suit! Such busy bodies in this world when millions are starving and dying of horrible diseases! Why not spend your hours you devote to your useless Blog to visiting the elderly in the old folk’s homes instead? I bet you dont even call your mom and see how she is doing! Shame! Shame! Shame! DUDE!!! Wake up!!! Life is short! (Esp with your impression of no after life!)

Sincerely,
John (johnroe6551@yahoo.com)

PS I bet this all boils down to that bicycle you didnt get on Christmas morning when you were 4 yrs old, right? You know, there are couselors for this dude!!!!

PSSS and dont pls comment back on religious fundamentalism! What a lame comeback that would be dude! Better yet, why dont you go right this minute, buy an airline ticket – (one way only I might add) and go to one of those Arab countries and present your very imp Blog to the leaders over there who hate us Americans! Surely your imp Blog will make all the difference with wanting to blow us up again like on 9/11!!

And do not even bother to send a reply, dude! If I see it come through on my computer I will delete on command!!!

****Dear God – please let this dude forget to save all his work and have a power crash for us internet travelers!! What a total waste of my search engine!****

If you got lost at any point in there, I’m afraid I can’t help you with that. However, the central message(?) seems to be something along the lines of “How can u cumplainz abot religionz wen so much uther bad stuff is goin on?” That’s what I was able to decipher anyway.

I really won’t go on any more about it, but you can see for yourself what this person thinks is a palatable argument. Maybe you could turn this into a mini drinking game. Every time you encounter a logical fallacy, you take a drink. You might have to change the rules around depending on your tolerance for alcohol/your hatred of your liver.

Evangelicals Pray the Darndest Things

I hate it when people on Facebook post holier-than-thou prayer requests for people who have done them wrong. It seems like such an obvious cry of “Look how good of a Christian I am! I can forgive and forget!” Either way, I would like to post Matthew 6:5 for your consideration in viewing the following.

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But then again, it’s sort of hard to be an evangelical without being somewhat of a complete braggart about your godliness.

Letter From an Apologetic Christian

As your stereotypical angry atheist, one thing I constantly fume about is the lack of apologies from Christians. Every time I see someone on the street with a cross necklace, I wonder why they aren’t apologizing profusely for their terrible lies about atheists and crude proselytizing efforts.

I recently received an email from a Christian reader who had stumbled upon my site (from a search engine, not StumbleUpon) and felt the need to apologize for the Christians that had tainted my view of his obviously superior belief system. Basically, he sounds like a pompous, arrogant asshat throughout.

Hi, my name is Marcus and I stumbled upon your site while looking for the names of God, of all things. I am a christian, but before you disregard this email and move on I wanted to tell you something. I am truly and deeply sorry. I in no way think that this email will turn you into a Christian… that would be ignorant and stupid. I just want to say sorry. I am sorry for all the Christians you have met that have looked down on you. The ones that have yelled at you for your beliefs or tried degrading or chastising you for them. I respect you, that’s not something you hear a lot from Christians I’m sure, but it is true. With all the hypocrites out there, the “God Warrior“, the church that claims “God Hates Fags”, as well as many, many others, I truly do understand why you don’t believe… truth is, Christians are supposed to not hate but I come very close to hating Christians a lot. So once again, I am sorry, for my own behavior and everyone elses. I will be praying for you, I know you won’t want me to, but I will anyway.

I added emphasis on the parts that I believe contradict each other. This guy knows that I don’t want to be prayed for, yet he’s gonna do it anyway. How is that not looking down on me? How is that NOT disrespecting me? He didn’t have to tell me he was going to pray for me, and I would have never known. Of course, neither would anyone else, since he’d be talking to himself.

I don’t personally care for his apology, but if you’d like to accept his apology and thank him for his sincerity, drop him a line at m.spartan001@gmail.com.

FarmVille Hates Baby Jesus!

farmvilleFor those of you who are not familiar with FarmVille, it is a game on the social networking site Facebook. For those of you who are not familiar with Facebook, I’m not sure this whole internet thing is for you. Anyway, FarmVille allows users to create virtual farms with crops, animals, trees, and buildings. One of the ways the developers keep the game fresh is to introduce seasonal items for users to purchase with in-game currency. In the past, these have included Halloween decorations and Thanksgiving-themed animals and decorations. It would stand to reason then, that the Christmas holiday would also have a prominent theme.

The application has drawn some criticism in the past from users in countries other than the United States because their local cultures did not celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving. Now, the complaints are coming from Christians who feel like FarmVille is desecrating their sacred commercial holiday by allowing users to place presents under a “holiday tree” in the game.

  1. The developers of FarmVille can do whatever they want. Just because it’s known as a Christmas tree to you and millions of others does not mean that they can’t call it a “holiday tree.” If you don’t like it, unadd their application. It’s just a pointless time waster anyway.
  2. I personally think changing “Christmas” to “Holiday” is stupid. I celebrate Christmas as a time to be with family and enjoy gift exchange. The origin is not relevant to my celebration or my choice of nomenclature.
  3. Speaking of origins, many Christians fail to pause and consider how exactly it is that an evergreen tree and a fat elf dressed in red came to be a part of the baby Jesus story. These traditions have Pagan roots and are a result of Christian efforts to assimilate Pagans into Christianity.
  4. Why do Christians get so bent out of shape because someone chooses to secularize a portion of this tradition? I don’t think baby Jesus would have thought much of the mad rushes on Black Friday, gluttony, and egg nog. Christmas is, and for a long time has been, a secular holiday. There are just those that still preserve some religious aspects of it.
  5. Shut up! You are not being persecuted!

My friend Megan, who apparently enjoys headaches, emailed one of the upset FarmVille users to call him out on his stupidity. Expecting nothing less, I was not at all shocked to read his reply to Megan, which was also incoherent, poorly worded, and off-topic. He accused her of bigotry and hatemongering, all the while spewing an equal amount of vitriol at non-believers. Megan wrote him back proving that she has more patience than I. Here is his first reply to Megan, supposedly addressing how the Christmas tree is in fact a Christian symbol.

There is no other source of origin of the traditional Christmas tree other than Christian culture, in fact the entire ‘holiday season” is based on our Christian heritage.

Perhaps if you would like to create another holiday season, choose another shrub and decorate it with non- tradtional Christian decorations, such as free condoms, free needles, government vouchers for things like government housing, government cheese etc.

Or just don’t bother having a holiday season at all, after all, there is no logical reason to have one if you aren’t a Christian. It’s a shame that this country’s Christian culture is being destroyed in the name of “respect for other cultures”, which is nothing but a bloody lie. After all, to respect other cultures would mean respecting our own Christian culture- which is the foundation of this nation- as well.

There is no “War on Christmas.” However, there does seem to be a war being waged by Christians called the “War on Everything that Doesn’t Align With My Worldview.” This is a free market economy (for the most part). If some retailer says “Holiday Sale” instead of “Christmas Sale” and it makes you angry – Don’t Fucking Shop There! If a radio station only plays Santa-themed Christmas songs and no Jesus-themed Christmas songs – Don’t Fucking Listen to Them! And for crying out loud, if some dumb Facebook game calls their seasonal fir something different than you would like – Don’t Fucking Play It!

Christians need to stop trying to get everyone to bend to their will. If these companies really want their business badly enough, they’ll change their ways. Otherwise, Christians need to realize that perhaps they need to choose their battles a little more wisely.

So go spray fake snow on your windows, string up thousands of lights on your house, put large curved and extruded peppermints on your lawn, drink egg nog until you barf, and listen to Bing Crosby sing “Home for the Holidays” and reflect on how all of that fits into baby Jesus’ grand scheme.
