Email from a Christian

 OK christians, without using the 'no true Scotsman' argument, explain the following emails. Remember the sender of these wondrous christian messages thinks him/herself every bit a christian as you. Here they are, with the name of your christian buddy mostly removed, and the colourful language somewhat disguised:

Dear V*******,

Thank you for your email of the 20th, which you sent to my Yahoo! account.

The subject line of your email was "wanker", and by this I take it you consider those who masturbate as somewhat inferior to yourself? I cannot see that the pretend pedestal you place yourself upon is anything other than absolutely flush with the rest of human-kind. When you have come to realize that masturbation is a perfectly natural, pleasurable pastime, you will understand that your childish attempt at a silly insult does not offend this adult. Everyone who is physically capable of the act, has, will, or does masturbate. Including both you and me. To deny it would be a lie. However, unlike you, I do not masturbate in public.

>>>athiests are gay

I would tend to agree that some atheists are gay, and it is undeniable that some Christians are gay too, including Catholic Christians. Heck, even some Popes have been gay.

However, I understand that you see the term 'gay' (when referring to those who practice a different sexual lifestyle to you) as a term to insult someone. Unlike you, I am not prejudiced in this manner, and I couldn't care less if you called me gay. Let's imagine for a moment that I am "gay", wouldn't your 'insult' be like water-off-a-duck's-back to me?

If you are at all capable of engaging in a reasoned email discussion about religion, I would not be adverse to one with you, but until that time arises, please try harder with your insults - they lack imagination and originality. You may also care to be upfront and honest by using your real name, not hiding behind an email pseudonym.
