It is Sunday, Church is out, and evidently another soldier for Jesus has been stirred up to go wage battle with the enemy
Someone, using a fake name and email address, came to The Way Forward via a Google Search for Hephzibah House. This blog is ranked tenth or second depending on how you search.
This person found the following posts about Hephzibah House:
These three posts elicited the following contact form emails from this Jesus lover:
You are Pig!!!!!!!!!!!!! You don’t make any sense at all.
Didn’t go your way,huh?
Little boy wants to get even with God because he wanted his own way.Little boy will have ALL of eternity BURNING ON FIRE to think about his stubborn idiocy!
Better repent my fat fellow traveller.You don’t like being preached at? Then why drag others into your little kiddie pouting match? Take it to God.He is still there and listening!
Now I regularly get “preach at me” emails from Christians but I don’t get as many of the above as I did when I first started blogging.
These kind of Christians are the worst kinds. Nasty, vindictive, filled with arrogance, they, behind the veil of secrecy the internet provides, attack other people. They are cowards because they refuse to own their words.
This particular Christian might want to know that the veil of secrecy is not complete. He left an IP address behind AND the government office he was emailing from.
Now, if I was just like him, I might pick up the phone on Monday and call the Hennepin County Government Center and let them know what this person is up to. But, I am not. I have on several occasion done so, but it was only after numerous emails and refusing to stop that I took further action.
This person’s emails are just another reminder of one of the reasons I left Christianity. This person has no respect for others. On the contact form I have:
Please do not send me emails trying to convert me or preach at me. I am not interested in your religious views nor do I have any interest in your God, Jesus, or religion. If you disregard my request, please understand that I may make your email public. You have been warned. There are millions of people who may be interested in what you are selling. I am not one of them. You are not going to tell me anything I have not heard countless times or preached myself. I know, I am, according to you, under the judgment of your God, headed for hell, etc. Your words will have no effect and will likely reinforce my belief that Evangelical zealots are only interested in hearing themselves talk or are trying to convince themselves, by attacking an atheist, that they are right.
