    Dear Vesvolod,

    I would step in front of that bullet.

    I like Zenpencils while believing in God and see nothing wrong with science or the comic.

    Oh and try and remember Matthew 5:9 where it says we should be peacemakers.

    I’m sure your death threats make your God proud. *Begins protocal level 7 eye roll*

    Gentle, loving christians everywhere.

    I love it when the Religious Right demonstrate the exact reason why I am no longer Christian or Republican. I only wish it didn’t take me so long to come to the conclusion.

    Here’s a link to the Internet Crime Complaint Center: http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx. You know, to send a thank you card to gentle, loving christians in times like this.

    Wow, excellent response. Thanks for sharing the link and may Vesvolod reason with an orange (jumpsuit) xmas. Cheers!

    If your ideas and beliefs are threatened by cartoons, and can only be secured by threats of violence, then they and you, are quite definitely wrong.

    Note: For those wondering about the context of this comment, it’s in response to a by-now deleted post with a death threat.

  • It would seem to be a failure of one’s position if the only argument for that position is violence.

    Excellent!

    To Vesvolod Chaplin: Why do you wish to kill all atheists?

    I wonder if this Vsevolod Chaplin is the same guy. http://orthodoxwiki.org/Vsevolod_Chaplin

  • momtarkle

    What does that mean, please?

  • the important thing is that you finally did step into the light of reason and sanity. that’s what really matters. i am also ashamed of some things i once said and believed, but i think those experiences helped me be as firm as i am in my atheism and liberalism today. i’ll be this way (if not more so) for the rest of my life, i’m sure of that now.

  • “do not feed the trolls.”

    esp the violent ones. basically, act like you never saw their horrible and malicious posts and don’t respond to them in any way.

  • momtarkle

    Kind of looks like it, doesn’t it? Why does he want to kill all atheists?

  • momtarkle

    Lesson learned, and good idea. But I’m still (silently) curious why anyone would say what he said.

  • momtarkle

    I can’t seem to delete what I had posted here, so will disappear it. I found my answer.

  • momtarkle

    Have any of you gentle (Hah!) readers filed a complaint against this turd on the provided site? If you haven’t, I will.

  • Nicely done.
