First of all I dont think English is their first language.
Second of all, I (Kevin) am in fact a very dedicated Christian, have been all my life.
Most importantly, all members of Evanescence (past & present) are all Christians and have stated such many times, however the musical entity of Evanescence is not a Christian band. There is a difference and the sooner the writer of the above email grasps that concept, the happier they shall be.
And two final items...
"heavy metal music because all the guys in those bands is children of satan"
*shakes head* Don't stereotype an entire genre of music like that, without having even the slightest clue what you are talking about. The majority of metal bands are pissed off and angry, 'fraid that doesnt make them children of satan. I'd actually recommend you check out Soul Embraced & Mindrage. The Christian metal bands both John & Rocky once played with.
And last but not least, the cherry on the top...
"International Broadcasting Complaints Commision for Internet Purposes"
You have got to be shittin' me. I'm afraid there is no such thing as the IBCCIP. But I enjoyed the empty threat. And I hope all the visitors to this site enjoyed it too. :)
You're appalled at the things I say? In this overly liberal politically correct world I say: GOOD. You know I wouldn't wanna step on any toes.
Profanity is not godly, you are correct about that. I never take God's name in vain. The only profanity I used in my previous rebuttal was "You have got to be shittin' me." which is a reaction I have when reading many of the emails I recieve, including this one. Any profanity Ben used is between him and God, it isn't my concern in the least. From what I've seen of Ben, Amy and the rest outside of what is thrown at us by the liberal mass media, I do believe their faith to be genuine. But again, its between them and God. Something to be eternally thankful for; that it's not by our works that we are saved, only the grace of God.
The China referance is rather interesting. If you wanna do something about it, support a missionary, be a missionary. Don't use it as some weak guilt trip for living in a free country.
Christianity isnt just some label I use, it's how I live. Anyone that knows me from more than a couple lines on some website knows this about me too. My conscious is clear, I am forgiven.
And just to wrap this up, you warned me about what I say, I want to warn you about what you say. The "holier-than-thou" attitude does far more damage by driving people away from the faith, instead of associating with them and drawing them in.
