Today I received yet another email from some 'lindyanne farlow'. I don't know anyone named Lindyanne, but the name screams BIBLE BELT at me for some reason. All of the mail I get from this person is religious in nature. Today, I'd had enough. And Rev Lou Sheldon? You better be reading this, or you're next. This email was sent to the original address of gloriapriscilla@yahoo.com.

This is your original message:
Hello Everyone,

I was asked by a very special friend as part of her religion class who I thought would DO this. I hope I chose the right twelve. Please send this back to me. (You'll see why.) In case anyone is interested. May everyone who receives this message be blessed. REMEMBER to say a prayer BEFORE you read the poem. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just send this to eleven people.

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of reward. (Did you pray?) Make sure you pray, and pray believing that God will answer. This is your last opportunity before reading the poem.


May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you....
May you be content knowing you are a child of God...
Let His presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

And this is my original reply:
I don't know who you are or how you got my email, but quit sending me your religion-related crap. If you actually knew me, you would know that I am an atheist. I resent this email particularly. No higher being created me, my parents did. No one puts food on my table except the hard work of my parents. Faith in a higher power means lack of faith in yourself. Religion is all a cult following. Prayer accomplishes nothing but the feeling inside yourself that you are better than people who don't.
Stop sending me your terribly contrived propaganda.
Send this to ALL of your friends to acheive higher enlightenment!

That might be the worst crap I've ever gotten emailed to me. Don't send me religious crap. My scattered reply may come across as unintelligent, thus proving some crazed better-than-thou theory of this person's, but I'm sending to that person a shorter versioon of what they sent to me.
Aw crap. I spelled 'achieve' wrong. I'll get over it.
