One of the reasons I put up an email contact form on my blog instead of just my email address was that I hoped to reduce spam. I had hoped that the form would not deter interesting Christians from emailing me, and so far, I don't believe it has. I thought I might use this thread to share some of these emails.
I just got one today that said,
"I just want to start out by saying that I used to be religious, but now I'm a Christian..
Your views on these issues are well thought out and presented well. I just want to say that I appreciate your 'flexibility' and sensitivity to both sides of the aisle."
What do you make of the first sentence? I have encountered variations on this theme again and again in comments and email from Christians, and I'm not sure what they're getting at? Do they not understand that Christianity is a religion, or am I missing something?
