While I'd like to avoid the religion flamewar, I should point out that
I was only
presenting a parody of an earlier "As a Christian" post with a
different response.
My (failed) goal was to point out the absurdity of that poistion in an
unoffensive way.
Discussions of religion are off-topic for this list and could be moved
to cygwin-talk, or
better yet to alt.religion on Usenet.

To be clear, my voting position is that I don't think fortune should
be removed, but
the bug that puts the possibly offensive ones in plaintext should be
fixed like any
other bug.
