I probably would have done the same thing.
I personally hate the emails that end with, "So many people forward sinful emails. Forward this email to 10 friends if you love Jesus! If you delete this, then have fun burning in Hell.
" Putting "Jesus" in a supertitious and hateful email that offends all other religions doesn't make it a faith revitalizing and loving email that is acceptable to all moral people.
I'm not going to get good luck if I send an email to 10 friends.
I'm not going to get a wish granted if I send a chain email to 10 friends.
I'm not going to re-affirm my believe in God or improve my chances of getting into heaven by sending a chain email to 10 friends.
Don't send me those emails. They will get deleted no matter how many times "Jesus" appears in the body. They will get deleted even if there was a lovely pray above the, "forward or burn" message. Those chain emails do nothing but give false hope because I always think, "Aw. This relative wants to give me an inspirational message!. Then I read the message....
Now, that's not to say every religious email I get is a chain email. I like the ones that have an actual Christian message that I can share or delete without being judged by the sender. That's why I keep reading the chain emails by accident.
But I have told people that I don't forward religious chain emails in a respectable way. If your response wasn't down right nasty, your Aunt was in the wrong for defriending you.
