I do buy Xmas presents for my family each year. I like Xmas, just not the religious nonsense. One of the things I bought was a scarf for my mother. I found it on the net, clicked Buy and that was that. Or so I thought.

The dingbat owner sent me three emails about my purchase -- and included bible verses on each! I was flabbergasted. I bought a scarf, not bible verses. I complained and the woman who answered included new bible verses with each email about the problem!

I can just imagine how this creature would react if she bought, say, an electronic item and the emails she was sent to confirm the purchase had anti-god messages. I brought this up with her but of course she saw no similarity. After all, what she was sharing was "good."

Ugh. To all the christians: ugh.

I love the comments and had never thought of slinging a verse back. Weird idea and maybe I'll try it. There are so many wonderfully crazy things in the bible. Thanks to all for commenting.

You could respond back with a bible verse.  Here's one:


"If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him.  Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you.  You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.  And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst."   (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)


Well, maybe not.  Might get you arrested. 


Maybe something shorter and sweeter...

"Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and possess the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants."   (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

I live in the south eastern United States. Down the street from me is a small business that sells/rents to own storage shed. Outside the store is a sign that only has a bible verse on it. The sign says nothing about the company or its hours but in big bold letters is that one verse. What is odd is that I am pretty certain that the verse has nothing to do with the type of business that sells storage sheds.


I don't get offended by the verse, but I know that if my business  had a statement in support of skeptics on a sign, people would call me antiChristian.
