David Cloud’s Mailbox

Every now and then David Cloud, a hardcore fundamentalist baptist, publishes some of the emails he has received over the past weeks or months. It always makes for hilarious reading. While I agree with a whole lot of what Cloud has to say, there have been a few times I’ve gotten close to emailing him myself. His stand on women’s clothing is, in a word, ridiculous and he is also an anti-Calvinist. However, I do admire the fact that he takes a strong stand on many important issues.

Here are some snippets from his mailbox:

‘You and your sickie so called ‘ministry’ need to hurry up and die and go to hell. Elvis was kind and good and is with Jesus. When you die, hell will open up to welcome you. … Why don’t you do the world a favor and jump off a high bridge?’


‘To know history is the death of Protestantism. Your critique is full of lies, rumors and misrepresentations. Jesus said ‘unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you will have no life within you. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.’ As recorded in John, chapter 6, this is where Judas turned away because he could not accept it. Judas, the first protestant.’


‘The bible is nothing but propaganda based on ignorance, superstition and fear of mortality. To any rational human being, its own words emphasize what a CROCK it all is.’

And so on. If you are exceptionally bored you can read more of it here.
