As much as I love reading GIANT emails from religious people, I think this should be closed as it was solved.

     We should probably restrict pornographic apps to the store and
    keep the lenses PG.

    Perhaps we should remove the Bible apps as well then. I find it
    seriously offensive. But maybe it's only nature that's unholy?
    USA are now making it illegal to teach the history of racism.
    They are also trying to make it illegal to teach non-theism.

    We should not forbid other peoples wishes because of ancient
    beliefs in witches and weird stuff. If Ubuntu starts to sensor
    things, it will no doubt be my reason to not only drop out, but
    become an extremely verbal enemy.

    What if we sell books, should Lady Chatterley's Lover be
    forbidden because it might not be perfectly suitable to children
    or fanatical christians? I will never, ever be a part of anything
    remotely similar to that. Present your next idea.

    I definitely agree with the idea that we should eliminate
    pornographic apps from "Apps Available for Download". That being
    said, I find it seriously offensive that you want to remove Bible
    apps. Nature itself is unholy. People are also unholy. I am
    unholy. No one but the Lord, Jesus Christ is holy. I find it
    seriously offensive that you wish to remove Christian Apps from
    that list. I am not just saying this because it offends me, I am
    saying this because (I understand that people from this list are
    from all around the world) people from other countries probably
    don't know this, but the United States was built upon
    Christianity. Now, the very people who built America would not
    recognise it because of all of the "politically-correctness" that
    is going on in America. A ton of public places (like public
    schools) try their best to keep Christianity out of them.

    I can also tell you that I *cannot* find the love and peace that I
    can in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is not just my God, he is also
    yours, and everybody's. You and everybody else can reject Him and
    tell me that He is not real, but how could I be an accident (if
    you are an atheist)? Give me just one time where you felt the love
    of your god. Just one. If you tell me that you are a Christian,
    you obviously are just saying that, because a true Christian knows
    how important it is to spread the Good News (which is that Jesus
    Christ was born in a little manger, *died a horrible death on the
    cross for _our_ sins, and _ROSE FROM THE GRAVE_*. He did this all
    for us. He did this because He loved us. Nails were hammered into
    His flesh and through His hands and feet. His last words on the
    cross were "It is finished.". I hope that you and everyone else on
    this list has read this and sort of understands what I am getting at.

    If you want to follow Christ forever and stay with Him forever
    after you die, here is what you must do, but the choice is yours,
    not mine:

    1. Admit to God that you are a sinner. "For all have sinned and
    fall short of the Glory of God." - Romans 3:23. This includes
    understand what sin is, you do it everyday without thinking about
    it, and so do I. It is basically anything you do that is wrong.
    For example (I am just stating these as an example, I am not
    saying that you have done them): murder, stealing, lying (a big
    one, we all lie), just to name a few, but there are a ton more.

    2. TRULY believe that God sent Jesus Christ to be your Lord and
    Saviour. Read the paragraph above. Adding to that paragraph: He
    also performed miracles to show how truly great He was and still
    is. He turned water into wine in literally A SECOND. Say you don't
    believe me, but you probably will once you read this: He made you
    and me. He made everything that is on earth (everything expect for
    man-made objects, including pornography which we all want to
    remove from the dash). Other man-made objects include all buildings.

    3. Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
    This does mean publicly professing that you are a Christian and
    that the Lord has come into your heart and soul. It is hard to do
    for some people, but you need to do this in order to be saved.
    (The term here "saved" means saved from spending eternity in Hell,
    which is what people do when they choose to not follow Jesus.)

    Do this, and I guarantee you will feel a lot better. You will have
    a sense of peace come over you in the worst situations like no
    other. You will know it is Jesus. You will also be comforted
    knowing that Jesus is in your life. Christianity is like no other
    religion. Other religions require that you do as their god says or
    else something bad will happen to you and you will be punished.
    Christianity is a relationship between you and God. This will be a
    mouthful: Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit are all the same, yet
    they are different at the same time. This is usually very
    complicated for everyone to understand. God sent His one and only
    Son, Jesus to die on the cross. Even though Jesus is God, they are
    still the different. All three of these (God, Jesus, and the Holy
    Spirit) have different jobs. The Holy Spirit is the one who
    changes you and helps you to become a Christian by working in your
    heart. Jesus Christ is God's Son who died on the cross for you.
    God is both our and Jesus' Father. He is our Heavenly Father,
    meaning that He is not our physical "on-earth" father. You do not
    necessarily need to fully understand this before becoming a
    Christian, Jesus will help you understand after you become a

    Please be careful: some people believe that being baptised makes
    you a Christian. It does not. It is a way of showing others you
    are a Christian. You can do this after you become a Christian if
    you like, though it is not required. I hope you chose to follow
    the steps I provided. Please remember, it is a simple, yet
    complicated choice: do you want to go to Heaven or Hell? Do you
    want to live your life following Jesus and letting Him lead you to
    the places you need to be, or would you rather live your life in a
    cloudy environment, where voices all over tell you what you should
    do (but what is actually what will get you in trouble)? What will
    your choice be? Will you choose to follow Jesus? I did and was
    changed on the inside and out. I was a completely new person. All
    Christians still sin, since they are humans (read the verse
    above), but Christians sin a whole lot less. I hope you have taken
    time out of your day to read this and have also decided to follow
    Jesus Christ and to accept Him as your Lord and Saviour.

    In Christ,

I also think that this should (if it is closed) be read by other people. ---I am not religious. I am simply a person who cares about other people. I care about people in this way because I do not want them to take a vacation (a bad one, and for eternity) to Hell. Would you like to ask Jesus into your heart? I can see that you probably not a Christian since you called me directly a "religious person". Thanks!
