Comments related to Christianity:

Most of the complaints seem to be from conservative Christians who object to us including liberal interpretations of the Bible along with their own views. Unfortunately, if we supply information about controversial topics, we are only doing half the job if we leave out liberal beliefs. 

bullet"You have exceeded the definition of the word Despicable, Can't you get anything right? You have added to and taken away from the word. Of no consequence to yourselves, other than your pre-ordained punishment. But leading others away from the word of God will surely earn you additional punishment. How dare you set yourselves up as legitimate authority on biblical translation. Reconsider and repent before you perish."
bullet"...no matter how you wish to play with words the bottom line is you are either Christian or Jew or you are satanist and there is no middle ground."
bullet"I find your honest treatment of issues refreshing. Your site is a challenge to us all to be so honest! I once heard it said that when you become a Christian, you should get a baptism, not a lobotomy!!"
bullet"Shame on you all.  You cannot hide behind your deceptions from God's judgment [sic] upon you. These are the most evil and demonic things I have ever heard. How dare you distort truth. Do not forget that God is truth!...The responsibility of all the lost souls you may cause should lay heavy upon your hearts. Their souls will cry out in vengeance upon your own souls, and who will be there to speak on your behalf? Certainly not the Lord whom you have so viciously persecuted. Do not ignore the inevitable. Just as all are born, all will die and face God.  Pity to all those who do not take seriously their responsibilities to Christ to promote the truth!!!!!!"
bullet"Stay away from our Christian houses, you doorbell worshippers!" [We are not certain what a doorbell worshiper is, but we suspect it has something to do with the Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons.]
bullet"I was impressed...that you...[do] not portray the Christian religion in a negative way, only the idiots who spread their hatred in the name of Christ."
bullet"What you have written is the worst type of racism there is you might even rank up there with the KKK and to answer the question of if there is a error on your web site there is the whole fu..ing thing is a mess."
bullet"The Bible condemns those who trifle with it's sacred contents. You guys are toast! God will say to you at the great white throne judgment - remember that bigoted conservative Christian who harassed you?"
bulletSubject: "Love the site" message: "NOT, you guys are total s..t heads who are the spawn of satan [sic] and i hope you all tern [sic] into cows! yours sincerly [sic], [name], 14 yrs old." 
bulletF..K YOU,STUPID CHIRSTIANS!! [Actually only one of the four of us is a Christian; none of us are Chirstians.]
bullet"I'm glad you get alot [sic] of hate mail, because their [sic] are still some good people out there who know what they are talking about unlike you. You have no right to be interrpreting [sic] the bible. And if you keep beleiving [sic] this stuff you putting on the internet you will go to hell."
bullet"As a born again Christen, [sic] I must say that your web site is truly great."
bullet"I am a born again Christian, and therefore, I haven't any tolerance for false religions that are dealing with cults. I love the people but not their beliefs.   Cults are leading people to an eternity in Hell with Satan the devil." [Written by a person who asked that we exchange links and later asked that the links be removed, because our site is too tolerant and too inclusive.]
bullet"Hey you fu....g freak! Get the hell off the internet with your s..t cause we don't want it here okay you fu....g bastard! [This came from a Roman Catholic boarding school]
bullet"Portestant [sic] faith is not to be identified in any way with the Roman Catholic faith. The Roman Catholic Church is a false church with false doctrines and practices...I would like you to split up the Christianity section into two parts...one holding the false teachings and practices of the R.C. church and the other for Protestantism. [Email from a Northern Ireland Protestant clergyperson]
bullet"you fagot [sic] lovers are a disgrace to the catholic church." [Actually, none of us are catholics].
bullet"...may GOD continue to bless each and every one of you in your endeavors to achieve the same tolerance that was bestowed upon us by Jesus."
bullet"When you include the cultic groups in among Christians, you do Christianity a disservice." [This was in reference to Christian Science, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses etc.]
bullet"Catholicism is not real Christianity. It is a mix of paganism and Christianity"
bullet"This is the best non Jehovah Witness description I have ever read. I was raised in the faith."

Comments about religious tolerance:

bullet"Don't disseminate information that will damn millions of people. Religious tolerance IS hatred as it sends the people you have duped to hell!!"
bullet"...the teachings of Christ do not include 'tolerance' (a word that us nowhere in the Bible)."
bullet"Religious tolerance is nice, but it isn't any good when God comes to judge in the end. He will not have religious tolerance." [This reminds us of the anonymous comment that we make God in our own image.]
bullet"I find your service dispicable [sic]. It is one of the primary reasons for the moral decay of Canadian society. I AM intolerant of people who do not follow the cultural norms of Canadian society. These cultural norms are Judeo-Christian in nature and no matter how much propaganda you people spurt out, you will not change this fact. I encourage anyone I meet to be INTOLERANT of homosexuality, facist [sic]"pro-choice" advocates and fight against the ideas promoted by New Age religions and Eastern religions.
bullet"Those who stand for everything, stand for nothing." 
bulletWhen I discovered your site I knew, at the least,  that there was some hope in this badly fragmented little world of ours. Yep ... religion has been the nom de plume for much of the killing/conquesting [sic] which has for thousands of years been one of the great marks, one of the signatures, of  humankind.
bullet"The Bible said people like you (religious tolerance) would arise." [This is probably a reference to false teachers arising in the end-times.]

Attacks related to heaven and hell:

bullet"I am very disturbed that one of your purposes is to "not promote any one belief or attack any one belief." My friends, all that you are doing is allowing people to go to hell-while I realize you are probably trying to be polite, you are actually feeding people lies. Jesus is the only way to heaven and that needs to be said."
bullet"You and your children will rot in Hell for all eternity because of what you have put on the Internet" [This is my personal favorite.]
bullet"...you guys are wrong. You will be held [accountable] for it when your [sic] judged. You guys need to burn in hell. Thats [sic] all. Bad bye."

Attacks related to Satanic Ritual Abuse:

bullet"Pathetic little pissants.[sic] You lying bastards are obviously Satanists. I challenge any one of you children of Satan to meet me sometime. I'd like to make you personally pay for the torture and murders you've committed against little children. Think you can do to a grown man what you routinely do to innocent, defenseless little children? You're just gutless freaks, destined for an eternity in hell!! There isn't one of you that has the balls to stand against me. My God, JESUS CHRIST, the Lord and Creator of the Universe, will use me to execute His wrath upon you  - I'll knock you down and cut your heads off! [The author is apparently referring to Satanic Ritual Abuse, and assumes that we are evil Satanists who engage in child abuse. We are not.]
bullet"You guys are F--KED!....SRA SURVIVORS EXIST!!!...AND YOUR REASONS FOR WHY YOU THINK IT IS ALL BULLS--T MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE!....YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF PERPETRATORS WHO HAVE PROBABLY INFLICTED THIS TYPE OF ABUSE ON YOUR OWN CHILDREN..................YOU DISGUST ME."
bullet"YOU ARE LIARS.  RITUAL ABUSE DOES EXIST.  ITS THE WORST COVER UP IN AMERICAN HISTORY!" [We have been searching for over 15 years for the first piece of hard evidence that it exists without any luck.; others have been at it for about 25 years]
bullet"You guys are disinformationists" [about Satanic Ritual Abuse].
bullet"Your site is just another pigs--t-pot of propaganda. You are a very hateful people. A curse on all of you."

Comments related to false memories, faulty child interview techniques and MPD/DID

bullet"...I don't see how you sleep at night. How dare you conjure up this nonsense about children!!!! I suppose you support NAMBLA, as well. Why would you want to help molesters get off from their punishments?" [This reader apparently objects to our essay on the latest findings on false memories and the accidental implantation of memories in very young children. "NAMBLA" refers to the North American Man-Boy Love Association -- a group that promotes the legalization of sexual behavior between adult males and young boys. It is an extremely small group. The New York chapter might be able to fill a telephone booth.
bullet"I found your site to full of s..t and obviously you all believe that MPD/DID is made up and you more than likely have been or are the ABUSERS attempting to discredit your victims."

Comments related to the Mormon church:

bullet"...Much of your information is very biased and anti-mormon, and offensive to "Mormons". You are disseminating false information."
bullet"...it is a real breath of fresh air to find someone like you who are so incredibly honest and neutral in describing a religious organization. I have never seen a more thorough, and unbiased write-up of my chosen church [Mormon] in 62 years of life. World Book and Brittanica could learn some lessons from you.
bulletI HATE YOU!!!!!!!!!! YOU SUCK [repeated about 100 times] BECUASE [sic] MORMINS [sic] ARE NOT COOL. YOU CUKT [sic] BASTARDS AND STUFF [repeated 76 times] ALSO HI. HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY. AND STUFF THE END IS COMMING [sic] SOON. AND YOUR RELIGION IS BASED ON A CLAM. HOW DUM [sic] IS THAT! [repeated 50 times] VERY STUPPID. NON [sic] OF YOU [sic] STUFF IS PROVEN TO BE TRUE. SO BE INTELIGANT [sic] AND [sic] NOT HID [sic] THE TRUTH. MY CHURCH HAS PROFF [sic] OF THE PAST. AND GOD IS COOL AND JESUS IS THE MAN AND HE DIED ON THE CROSS AND [sic] RAISED SO WE COULD BE COOL AND STUF. [sic] F..K YOU. AND I HATE YOU. (This reader appears to believe that we are Mormons. We are not).
bulletYour discussion of LDS/Mormons/RLDS/CofChrist/etc. was well-done: you were able to show the various perspectives of the faiths without showing any type of bias for or against a very difficult (and all-too-rare) achievement.

Comments about other faith groups:

bulletComments about Islam: 
bullet"Islam is the Devil's religion. I and millions of other siviliced [sic] man [sic] pray every day that you will go home to your fathers [sic] house - hell, - where you belongs [sic].
bulletComments about Neopaganism:
bullet"You all are a bunch of dumb fu..s.  Witchcraft is not a religion.  It's a cult that people join  to gain power over other people. Preying on weak minded s..t heads that just feel like they want to belong to SOMETHING."
bulletAttacks related to Satanism and Satan:
bullet"u all suck rpg have nothing to do with satan worshipu suck 666 666 M.MANSON WILL COME AND KILL ALL OF U #$%^ U A## HOLES"
bullet"You probably think you're quite pious but in reality, as Jesus would tell you, your Father is the Devil!" [Actually, we don't look upon ourselves as particularly pious.]
bulletAttack related to Wicca:
bullet"Merry May you Demonic son of a b--ch...I don't think you have the right to sass us on your web site.  So you can just take all your mumbo jumbo, goat f--k wanna be pentagrams and wrap it in a tight wad and shove it up your a-s you little fu--ing demonic son of a bitch. May the Goddess blow your fu--ing head off. P.S. Blessed be and good wishes you fu--in low life son of a b--ch.  So I highly advise you to stop calling us hypocrites and leave Wicca the f--k alone or I will personally come and set your Satanist a-s on fire."

[The Emailer seems to believe that our web site is run by Satanists and that it ridicules Wicca. They are wrong on both counts. This is a memorable letter! It is the first vicious attack that we have received from a Neopagan in the seven years of our group's existence. This is in spite of the fact that over 20% of our visitors are a Wiccan or follow another Neopagan tradition. In contrast, we get at least one a week of this style from conservative Christians who represent only a few percent of our visitors.
bulletAttacks related to the Creativity Movement (formerly called the World Church of the Creator (WCOTC):
bullet"Hey die, you racsist [sic] white f--kers."

[The Creativity Movement is a racist group of white supremacists from Illinois who hate non-whites, homosexuals, and communists with a vengeance. We wrote an essay on this group, which we personally feel to be profoundly evil, in order to alert people to the dangers of this organization. Unfortunately, some of our visitors assume that we are the WCOTC, and direct their hate Email to us. This is only one of dozens of abusive Emails that we have received.]

Attacks related to abortion:

bullet"With all due respect, which is none, you are baldfaced, murderous liars. All of your 'information' is hardline pro-abortion,"
bullet"You've got a lot of nerve to claim your site to be unbiased. No matter how you slice it, you ba....ds are COMPLETELY incapable of being objective about anything....After all, that's what makes you anti-abortionists! Stupid f...s." [Actually, most of our staff is pro-choice. But we are pleased that this reader was so certain that we are pro-life. It shows that we did a good job describing the pro-life side.]
bulletWhere in the F--K do you plan to tell me you found a group of CATHOLICS that support widespread access to abortion? Have you lost your f--king MIND trying to pawn off that bulls--t? What do you do...just make s--t up and post it? Did you even ask ONE question before putting this dumb ass s--t out there for public consumption? I ma a Catholic, and we do not even believe in BIRTH CONTROL, much less ABORTION as a morally acceptable choice. You...are a group of f--king idiots! [We suggested that he do a Google search for "catholics for free choice" As far as Roman Catholics not practicing birth control, it is general knowledge that the number of children in Catholic families is extremely close to the average for the U.S.]

Comments about science:

bulletYA'LL ARE SOME DUMB A-S BIT--ES!!! HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE ANYTHING ORDERLY CAN COME OUT OF RANDOM OCCURANCES??? [sic] AND HERE'S SOMETHIN [sic] YOU CAN THINK ABOUT...    IF THIS ONE SINGLE-CELL ORGANISM WAS WHAT CAUSED LIFE, THEN HOW IN THE F--K WOULD IT SURVIVE W/ OUT FOOD AND IN A HARSH CLIMATE?...DAMN YOU ARE SOME DUMB PIECES OF S--T!!! OH WELL, BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT, BUT IN THE END YOU WILL BOW DOWN TO GOD... BUT IT WILL BE TOO LATE...."
bullet"Why have you included links to creationist sites on your 'evolution vs. creation science page? I really don't feel these crackpots are worthy of this gesture." [We do this because Fundamentalist and other Evangelical Christians sincerely, seriously, devoutly believe in creation]
bullet"I am pleased to have FINALLY found a site that supports evolution and has a lot of hard evidence."
bulletAn Email with the subject: "Thanks for the Politially [sic] Correct & junk, pseudo-science site..." said: "You are hearby [sic] awarded the worst science site of the net! Thanks for the miss-information! [sic]"
bullet"I am something of an expert on the subject [of cloning] having published in the field, and this is the best compilation of information I have seen.  Accurate, succinct, clear, and complete."

Stuff that we are at a loss to interpret:

bullet"Blumfermal you polytheistic snermalfalistics. Glameldoc in the brammeltudes of egyptylogical  curmondfugery. Syvindallimet ricly" [Anybody make sense out of this?]
bullet"i think you people are doing the right thing hating ni---rs, ni---rs are the cock roachs [sic] of the human race." [This Email seems to have come from a visitor who read our essay on the World Church of the Creator -- an anti-black, anti-gay, anti-semitic, anti-communist religious group. The visitor seems to have assumed that because we wrote an essay on the WCOTC, that we are in favor of their beliefs, hatreds, and practices. We are not.]
