As much as I love reading GIANT emails from religious people, I think this

So yeah, an app called "Porn View" showed up while I was demoing Ubuntu to

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

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 EVERYBODY: ME, YOU,
EVERYBODY ON THIS PLANET). If you do not 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 Christian.

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!
You're absolutely correct. Real Christians would never call another
Real Christian a "religious person."

Posting multiple times to software development mailing lists is also
the best way to increase the number of Real Christians in the world,
so I'm glad you're doing the right thing!
