Comment on the April Fools “FAQ”
I received the following as a comment on the sarcastic April Fools FAQ I posted a few days ago.
These were very funny, however: save them for the main part of your website. This is one of the few places that I’ve found where one can find an intelligent, nuanced discussion of religious themes anywhere on the web, and I like to be able to direct my religious friends to your blog so that they can see the opposing side of view. I understand that it’s April Fools and you want to be funny, and it was funny, but it takes away from the rest of the blog.
I guess some people might be offended or upset about a comment like that — tempted to say “can’t you take a joke,” or something like that. But I honestly appreciate the sentiment. This blog is indeed supposed to be a place where we can talk rationally about religion without mean-spirited comments from me, and I am glad that it is being received in that spirit.
I should be back to my regular erratic posting of real material in about two weeks. Thanks for hanging in there with me!
