The Gods Must Be Spammers

Spam gets religion

The growth area in unsolicited e-mail is now messages that contain religious themes. And the bad news is that unlike commercial spam, it’s not illegal. E-mail recipients are increasingly being offered religious salvation through the power of spam, according to security company MessageLabs. The antispam company has intercepted a large number of spiritual e-mails in the last month. The company says the e-mails are legal because they don’t plug products, just religious ideals.

Oh yeah, I’m sure that’ll endear Christianity to the world. Grrr…
