"Have Fun in Hell, you Fruitcake"

Occasionally I get a letter expressing intolerance and hatred. Let me post one of those for you:
My name is dave, i am 18 years old, and i am commenting about your fruitcake website. You must feel real proud that your turning God-believers into non-God believers. Regardless, those people probably didnt have a strong belief in Jesus, for them to just denounce him all for your screwed up beliefs. All I'm saying is.... I am gonna enjoy watching you get judged by God himself and get cast into hell. Because if you dont get over yourself and if you dont humble yourself and accept jesus as your personal saviour, then your going to hell. And im just tryin to imagine the look thats gonna be on your ugly mug when Jesus says "Depart from me, I never knew you". Have fun in Hell you fruitcake.

(P.S.) Post this on your web-site, so others will see it and maybe inspire them to write back to shut down your tasteless website. Because if i had the power i would shut it down in a heartbeat.
Dave may relish the thought that, if he is right and I am wrong, my ugly mug will face eternal torture. Let me assure Dave, that, if it turns out that some other religion is right, and that he is the one facing eternal torture, I would plead for his life, and feel nothing but horror about a person being placed into such agony. And I think somewhere deep inside, Dave may have similar feelings too.

Interestingly, I asked Dave if I could use his full name and publish one of his comments on the front page of my website. He did not respond. I think that Dave himself may feel some shame for what his religion has caused him to say. Perhaps deep inside, he does not want to be identified with what his words say.

dave is a prime example of what religion does to people. i was dave at 18. if anyone has seen the movie "Kinsey", you get a prime example in Kinsey's father of why so many religious people are filled with hatred and bitterness.

THANKS SO MUCH for your web site. I just discovered your blog and decided to sign up and start reading it! :)

Religion causes more grief and suffering around the world and has done so since somebody first dreamt it up.
Surely people must see what is true and what is false, just as they are able to see the noses on their faces.

Hehe... sad to say, I was also like Dave once. :P I argued with my mom over choosing Christianity instead of following our family tradition of a mixture of Chinese religions. Haha..

I even told her that she will not go to heaven if she does not believe Jesus as her saviour... haha..
