My response will be under the mail and in bold.
- A fundy has seem himself in the You
Might Be a Fundy IF lists, and yells at the Squirrel
in this entertaining mail!
I AM A 39 YEAR OLD MALE BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN. I READ YOUR
LIST WITH SOME HUMOR BUT YOUR CUSSING COULD HAVE BEEN LEFT
I HAVE TRIED TO LIVE BOTH WAYS (SECULAR & CHRISTIAN) AND
HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT GODS' WAY IS BEST. SORRY THAT YOU FEEL
AS YOU DO.
I APPRECIATE GOOD HONEST DEBATE SO IF YOU WISH TO WRITE BACK
AND CHAT PLEASE DO, HOWEVER I'M NOT VERY FAST AT TYPING, AND
I DON'T GET ON THE WEB VERY OFTEN, SO BE PATIENT.
I DON'T FOLLOW PEOPLE BLINDLY OR AGREE WITH EVERYONE OR EVERYTHING
ON YOUR LIST, BUT I DO FIT ALOT OF IT, SO I GUESS THAT MAKES
ME A FUNDY, RIGHT? RIGHT.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to write
into the Island.
First, I do not understand your need to yell. Writing in all
caps is tasteless and considered yelling. Why?
I am glad you found some humor in the list. I really do not
see why anyone should really object to the use of "swear"
words, since the biblical sense of "swearing" is
not using four letter words. Plus, if you have read the lists,
then you would know that I did not write them, they are a
collection from many different people.
I am happy that you think god's way is the best live by. I
am sure you are happy living that way. But that in no means
establishes that it is better than any other way to live.
It just says you think it is, nothing more. And if you are
happy living that way, then great. As for me, I find the whole
religion to be one big lie and farce to the point that people
who actually believe in it, deserve what ever they get for
their belief, if you need some sky pixie to make it all better
in this world, I am sorry.
If you are a fundy, then I am very sorry to hear that. Based
upon what a fundy is, and how they think, honest open debate
will not follow I am afraid. Anyone fundamentalist cannot
have open honest debate. Unless you prove me wrong.
Would you change your mind if given enough proof that the
christian religion was a lie? Yes or no? I am not offering
nor claiming to have that proof... I just want to know if
it was shown to be a lie, that you would be able to admit
that and accept it, and give up the belief.
