What is it with people who can’t identify an Internet hoax when they see one?  I receive email like the following way too often: Proposed Amendment. Don’t these people spend one iota of time checking out what they are forwarding?  It’s not just the content that’s being forwarded it’s that I know these people and they are not gullible.  If anything, they suspect the kid selling magazine subscriptions at the door to be a con-artist.  Really?  Where is their “paranoid radar” when they read this stuff?  Why forward it to hundreds of people as well?

Online Evangelism

I endeavor to avoid websites, forums and anything else online that has to do with God and public opinion.  I have nothing against people sharing their opinion on God or their belief that God doesn’t exist.  I would rather read an atheist’s opinion on God than the typical online Christian’s attempt at “converting” the non-believers, because most Christians appear online as if they are illiterate fanatics who love Jesus while atheists, on average, appear to be reasonably educated and can actually illustrate their thinking in writing.

Let me get something straight.  I am not the best writer around nor am I a “grammar Nazi” looking for errors in what people post.  I’m not even paying much attention to what I am writing myself (this absolves me of any mistakes), but I will put what I am writing right now up against 90% of what any other Christians online are trying to say in their attempts at evangelism in forum posts and comment sections on articles, etc.   I also must point out that the people who publish articles and the like are not my targeted group for this rant.  I am talking to you forum hounds and comment fiends who feel the need to tell people who make rude comments that, “Jesus luvs u.”  It makes me literally cringe misspelling words like that.

As I previously mentioned I try and avoid anything online that has to do with Jesus where people can post public opinions.  However, I cannot avoid my own friends on Facebook.  I think Facebook preachers are the worst at evangelizing but Facebook preachers deserve their own post.
