I get some mighty weird e-mails

Since you cover religious topics, I though this national conference on the Middle East Crisis from a Biblical perspecttive [sic] might interest you:

CHICAGO, Sept. 17 /Christian Newswire/ -- On October 1-2, Chosen People Ministries is presenting the Inside The Middle East Crisis conference at The Moody Church in Chicago to critically examine the epicenter of the dramatic spiritual, geopolitical and economic events in the Middle East through a biblical lens.

This is an evangelical Christian group dedicated to converting the Jews. Among the listed speakers, "The president of Chosen People Ministries, Dr. Mitch Glaser, explains God's purpose and plan for Israel and the Jewish people." I'm sure they will be very interested to hear all about it, although you might have thought God would have the common courtesy to tell the Jews directly rather than making them hear it from Dr. Mitch Glaser.

I don't know what it is about the deity, he just continues to think he needs to speak through one or another wacko. After all, being omnipotent he could just take over the TV or something. Weird.
