An email

So... I received the following email in response to my previous post "I Went To A Christian Concert." I'm not sure what to think, or how to respond. And I have absolutely no idea what is meant about the astrological sign. I don't even know where that is. Here's the email:
I was trying to find out how many people attended the Mercy Me concert and saw your blog
Your language and comments were very surprising and disturbing especially after discovering that you are a pastor -- I am shocked
and to see your astrological sign on your blog site is equally if not more shocking
what about your spiritual gift -- ?
isn't that more important than that
who that knows and believes in Jesus would cast their lot on how the stars or shining on their birthday
I do not usually comment to peoples blogs - seldom read any from people that I don't know but yours leaves me speechless instead of saying what's on my mind
Eph 4: 28-31
and where did the paranoia come from??? "everyone staring at us"
please don't send reply
I don't want to get into a banter -- just take my comments as food for thought

this "food for thought?"

we use this kind of smelly "food for thought" to fertilize our garden.

Unbelievable and I don't even believe any more.

Well here's the thing...people are idiots.

Tried to work a Seinfeld reference in there (sort of).

Haha... thanks guys. :)

That was extremely odd. Lock your doors at night? Maybe the sign is the three little squares at the top of your page? And that's quite a little speech for being "speechless"?

That is odd. I'm still trying to figure out the "astrological sign".

Do you think he means the peace sign in the photo?

Or is that your spiritual gift? :)

Food for thought...

Doesn't blogspot automatically put your astrological sign somewhere? I'm not going to take the time to look at the moment but for some reason I feel like it does. And anyway - who cares.

Weird.

And I hope they see this.

I will say that the astrological sign element of Blogger has always kind of bothered me, not with your site in particular, but just in general. If you tell Blogger your birthday, it adds your astrological sign to your profile. If you want to get rid of it, all you have to do is go onto the page to edit your personal profile and delete info on your birthday.

Unless I just can't see it on my own profile, I don't see the astrological thing on my blogger profile either. It must be the peace sign. :)
