Removed from Jesus

Hey – I’ve made it as an atheist writer! You know how I know? Because someone signed me up for six different Christian mailing lists! Big time, baby. I’m not sure how to best deal with them (especially if I find myself getting signed up for more along the way), but for now I just unsubscribed.

This was my favorite subscription update page of all of them:

On internet you don’t remove Jesus – Jesus removes you.

    Well, it’s probably more PZ’s schtick than yours, but I would have looked for the inconsistencies in their claims. Get them fighting among one another.

    Why is it that site Z argues that aborted fetuses go to heaven while site X argues that they go to hell?

    That sort of thing.

    The reason there are a bazillion+6 Christian web sites/lists/whatever is because they can’t agree on any single point of dogma.

    I’m so jealous.* No one ever does that to me.

      F [is for failure to emerge]

      Wasn’t it Jesus who had a thorn in his paw or something?

        Yes, and if you remove it, he gives you riches.

        It was the Olden Days.

    Yeah, but the final email confirming your unsubscribe will read something like this:

    Are You Really, Truly Sure You Want To Leave Jesus?

This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    [ ] Yes, I’m sure; please remove me from Jesus.

    [ ] NO, PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE ME FROM JESUS!
