for reference--'Debunking Church-State Separation Myths and Legends'
From internet infidels discussion board, an interesting site I just discovered:

Spam Guide: Debunking CSS myths



This post, which will be updated as needed, contains links to threads on the Internet Infidels Discussion Board which focus on crafting replies to email spam containing church-state separation myths and legends. Some of this email spam has been going around the internet for years. This is a handy "godspam guide" to help you reply to such messages.

The "14% shut up and sit down" spam is also called the "Mary Had a Little Lamb" spam. The primary rebuttal resource is by Samantha Bennet:

Reply: "Freedom of speech does not require 51%"

2. This longtime fan of Internet Infidels thanks you for posting these.
