stuff to say.

My name Is Mike, and two of my emails are posted on the main page of your
site under the "14 year old canadian antichrist".
Firstly, I was surprised you put it up. Proud, yes, but surprised. I
suppose I can be a wordsmith even when ranting, and I'm hoping that's why
I was posted. Sorry to give you such a time going through and censoring
it before posting, though...
I have a few more things to say, after reading through some of the emails
in your MotherLoad of emails section.
A few observations...
Firstly, why is it that such a large portion of the christian emails sent
to you have such horrid grammar and/or spelling? My email ettiquitte is
nothing to brag about, but I seem to make comprehensible sentences, and
use more than one punctuation mark whilst constructing a paragraph.
Beyond this fact, all somewhat 'supportive' emails to your site that have
alike mistakes in them, also seem to have numerous mentions and praises
to 'satan', or 'the devil'. This is a christian concept, and therefore,
these can be considered christian emails. Therefore, it seems that
atheism/antichristianity seems to gravely improve spelling and grammar.
Interesting, isn't it?
Next factor, is that on so many numerous occasions, people writing in to
insult your down your site have made many misconceptions about it. It
seems that they also have incredibly low attention spans, because if they
actually READ your site (not neccessarily in it's entirety) some of their
ignorant questions can be easily answered. They also seem to believe you
are very pro-'satan' because you have images that are 'satanic' and
whatnot. Firstly, I'd like to see where these magical images are. I've
only seen antichristian images, and as you have explained on numerous
accounts to many people, this is just to rile christians up.
Finally, I have noticed that a large portion of the christian emails sent
to you are filled with "praise jesus!"'s, and "god loves you!"'s. Incase
these people haven't noticed, you don't believe in either of these
things. But beyond the fact that they are clearly disregarding your
constitutional rights (I'm not even freaking american, and I know you
have the right to religion of your choice). They preach, and preach to an
extent that it has no resonance to those who it had resonance to before.
It is ridiculous to preach to those who can simply block it out. It is
also moronic to do such things because it makes ALL christians look like
complete fools. That's why I respect those christians who actually try to
make sensible (somewhat) arguments and present them to you.
Finally, it seems that some of these emails (or in my imagination,
regardless) they have made the misconception that you hate all
christians. EVERYWHERE. How very untrue, you just have a strong disliking
for their beliefs, and those of them which follow it to such and extent
in where it causes harm to themselves and others. I know several
christians (or catholics, as they pointed out (although they are
basically the same thing)) who are quite cool. They are open minded, and
respect others choices on religion, even though theirs clearly decrees
that they should go out and push forth 'the word of jesus and the gospel'
and all that whatnot. I have an undying respect for those who can go
against what they have been taught to be true, if it contradicts what in
themselves they know.
More finally, I just have to restate that your site is a great one. It is
intelligent, and full of wisdom and strong arguments. I appreciate you
for making this site, and I hope you keep it running.
