Then, again, some people have no sense of humor. And they might decide their personal mission would be to bring religion to the lowest of the low (another potential team name).

Here's a thought: why do people bother praying for me, if I've committed an eternal sin?

“Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven all their sins and all the blasphemies they utter. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin."

I think that means once you go atheist, you never go back.

Jamie suggested something about the devil, and I was like, "I don't believe in him either." A lot of people in Oklahoma don't get that.

I do accept being called "an antichrist" though (but not THE antichrist--come on, I'm not that important!) as it's defined as one who "denies the Father and the Son; denies that Jesus is the Christ; confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh."

This comment of yours makes me smile, CATS.
"I am in not one, not two, but THREE teams, PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED on my profile that should suggest this is a no-go: Separation of Church and Weight, Liberal Atheist Hippies, and Secular SparkPeople."

What are some TASTELESS TEAM NAMES for additional teams to WARD OFF messages from the lunatic fringe, who fail to understand that we have a right to be ourselves and to believe or not believe as we see fit and that we are taking personal responsibility for actions we take on our journey to good health and happiness (not relying solely upon some external magical answer).

Here's the first one that comes to mind.

Honk, If You DON'T Love Jesus!

I am so sorry you have been subjected to what appears to be misguided religious fervor. Some time ago, someone like that, a total stranger to me, sent me a SparkMail asking why I wanted to take God out of SparkPeople.

It was very upsetting. I managed to respond politely, explaining what our team is about, and that I wished her well and hoped she would show me the mutual respect that we both deserved for having our own personal beliefs about life. I recall saying something about how I was pretty sure she would be familiar with a Bible passage about "in my house there are many mansions". Would that story not tell us that it is incumbent upon each individual to seek to build his or her own spiritual mansion and pathway to it?

I also vented here and on the Atheist Hippies team about how attacked I felt. My team mates mostly said they would not even have dignified it with a response.

I think I agree with them. I'm sure I didn't accomplish much, if anything, by responding. If someone is so close-minded that they are capable of sending such messages, they are not likely to understand another position. They, after all, have Gawd on their side.

As long as we, your peers, know why it was such an insulting infringement upon your personal rights, maybe that's all you need. Do you feel better about it yet?

The person was insensitive.

Yah, I live in one of those areas (Oklahoma). She and I have no teams in common, so I think it was just sent to me. After looking at her Sparkpage though, she appears to be a sweet older lady, just a bit younger than my mom. I'm not one for "telling people off" on the Internet anyway, but especially not someone who looks like she could be my mom's friend!

Hey there,
I can see how this would make you uncomfortable. Was it sent just to you though? Some people sent quite random emails to a whole team, and many people are super comfortable to throw Jesus around in everyday conversation, especially if they physically live in a very religious community (and there is LOTS of these in some parts of the U.S.).

Fall seven times. Stand up eight.

I got a SparkMail today from someone whose name is essentially "Jesuslover." I have no idea where this person came from, but they shared with me some medical trouble they are having. (So they must know I'm going through the ringer too, I guess?) They ended their message saying that they'll pray for me if I pray for them.

What?! First of all, I am in not one, not two, but THREE teams, PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED on my profile that should suggest this is a no-go: Separation of Church and Weight, Liberal Atheist Hippies, and Secular SparkPeople. (I'm so dumbfounded by this that I will be posting in all three. Sorry to the other members that will see crossposting!)

And secondly, since when is it a trade-off? I think that offended me more than anything.

What would you do? I'm torn between delete and ignore and responding (but how?).
