Oops you did it again! Reformed another one with your blasphemous, horrifying website!

Before I found your site about 4 years ago, I was walking the fine line between "Christian with questions" and "complete disbelief". I sat for hours reading fan mail and hate mail. I cackled out loud after watching you pick apart letter after letter from angry Christians (some well meaning, some not.) I played Dress Up Jesus a few times. One thing led to another and before I knew what was happening, I had become a full fledged Atheist!

I actually felt pretty sheepish when I realized how simple the whole thing really was. It turned out that I had just taken a Children's Literature class at my local community college. What clicked with me was when we studied how different cultures explain natural phenomenon with stories. Most of the stories are cute and have interesting little characters with neat little quirks or problems. While they make for cute little fire-side chats, and adorable stories to pass down through the generations, they are hardly substantial enough to hold up under scrutiny. What I came up with was this question-

"How can our society think that other cultures are silly and ignorant for believing in fables and nature tales, but then turn around and kill, die, and wage war for what amounts to be the same thing?"


I was going to include my answer to the above question with this letter, but I think I'll leave it to the pro. I will say that it has something to do with psychology, and the human need to belong and be right. Oh, and guilt, lots of guilt.

The answer that I came up with for myself explained all of my questions and doubts about Christianity. And, like I said before, it made me feel silly that it had taken me so long to figure out what I had known all along. We learned about fairy tales and fables in first grade. Duh! I sort of felt like Dorothy when she finds out that she had the power to go back to Kansas the whole time. I guess you could say I had a revelation. Pun intended.

Anyways, what I wanted to say to you, Normal Bob, after all these years, is thank you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I couldn't have done it without you!

With much love and adoration,
Aaryn

That's the same thing the Greeks told people who didn't believe in Zeus.

“your missing out on heaven”

your missing out on heaven

And it has not crossed your mind that Heaven is make-believe?

Personally I can have no heaven while others suffer in hell. That's just too awful for me even to imagine. You'll be able to enjoy paradise while other people burn and choke forever in hell? Good, well-meaning people who simply believed differently than you?

Please answer that question. It's very important to me.

“Marilyn Manson”

Cool. Thank you.

“you both do what you do for shock value”

In that you both do what you do for shock value and attention

That, and because it's what we believe, and the art of it.

Thank you again.

“you suck”

you suck

Chantelle Robbins
chantellerobbins@yahoo.com

Um, that would mean that your hero Marilyn Manson sucked too, so you may wanna rethink that, smarty!

Bob

“you both suck!”

you both suck and are going to hell. i'll shall pray for the both of you.

Chantelle Robbins
chantellerobbins@yahoo.com

Oh.

Nevermind then.

Bob

“Forgive them”

Forgive them for they know not what they do

Chantelle Robbins
chantellerobbins@yahoo.com

Does your "Forgive them for they know not what they do" also apply to you telling me how much I suck, calling me a fool while you don't answer any of my inquiries about what you believe – Enjoying heaven while others are in hell?

You like the judging part of your religion, huh?
Bob

FUCK OFF!!

OH FUCK OFF!!

Chantelle Robbins
chantellerobbins@yahoo.com

I forgive you for you know not what you do.

“you should not make fun of other people's God.”

To whom it may concern:

You might want to reconsider your "Holiday Jesus Dressup" page. I am not an ultrareligious person and even I find this offensive. How can you mock somebody that died for your sins? Even if you do not believe in Jesus you should not make fun of other people's God.

Sincerely,
Jade M. Noble

P.S. I hope that you did not mean this to be offensive, but it truly is.

I highly disagree. I believe it is our duty to make fun of the gods people invent to worship and follow the orders of. Worshipping gods is a destructive, alienating activity that leaves very little room for negotiation when butting heads with other god worshippers. Mocking the gods is mandatory, unless you're looking to have all the gods people think up going unquestioned.

Where I'm from someone with your beliefs is considered ultrareligious.

Thanks for the email!
Bob
