JESUS CHRIST! I'm moving this weekend, the magnets are coming in on the 10th, the show is going great, too many Amazing Strangers that need posting, the movie is showing in LA, and somehow I still find time to answer
Their letters are in yellow, whilst mine are in black & white.

This article (Yahoo/LA Times) probably has been posted to your attention more than once today, but being the ever-alert Bob-fan that I like to consider myself (if from afar), I figured if once is good, then a dozen or so times must be even better.
What would be your take upon all this? As an American now living in Canada, trends like what this article discusses makes me very glad I moved in 2002. I can remember all too well having the faithful try to pressure-sell me their belief system. It's a sad society that feels the need to exclude others simply on what they choose to (not) believe. Granted, Canada does have its share of christians (and even scarier, french catholics [eek!] My grandmother was one- she went insane- but that's another story), but no one here seems to carry their faith to such an extreme as do those in the U.S. It would appear Neil Abramson's film (can't wait to get it here in Toronto) has come out just in time.
Your site and the hate mail you post provides the world with a more complete view of christians. To think that religion, god, and faith have become as trendy as a pop star is really sickening. We need more people like you to show that atheists aren't evil or immoral, and more stories like Judith Gordon's (page 5 of fan mail). I don't think I need to say that we need more hate mail from people who's emotions run high while their intelligence runs low- they'll always be around.
Thanks for providing logic with humour!
This is a reaction to Mel's email on hate mail page no 239. She lives in Toronto. I live in the province of quebec. There isn't many (if at all) _french_ catholics in Toronto. Here in my home town (one of the few remaining english bastion outside of Montreal), we got plenty of both christians and french catholics. Let me say that A) most catholics are either turning quickly into atheists or being less and less active towards religion. Unless you're about 60 years old, there's no such thing as catholic preachers. B) even young christians are preachers, especially here. There's pretty much no such thing as a non-preaching christian.
Therefore, christians are WAY much more scarier than catholics. I can't begin to understand how anyone (especially out of the quebec province) can get the impression that catholics, more especially _french_ catholics can
As an end note. You could try to make a Mary dressup and we will see how scary catholics can really be compared to christians...
Keep up the good work!
Confused-Sebastien again. Well now I'm less confused as I have statistics to prove my point:
It states that catholics is the largest christian community (larger than lutherian which is what you guys actually calls "christians". According to statistics from your very own hate mail page, there's is MUCH less catholics hate mail than "christian" hatemail while there's more catholics on earth than christians. Therefore, christians are scarier than christians.
Looking at this map
I also want to point out that zero french-canadian catholic ever sent you and hate mail. I can therefore conclude without any hint of a doubt that french catholics are not scary at all.
