Your church sounds like a cult to me, I read about it. I will pray for
You need to learn about "satire" and "humor". Slamming a pop group, whether as a "joke" or because you really don't like them is not funny. It's downright disrepectful to not just the group, but their fans as well. To add into the "joke" a fake suicide makes it all the more revolting.
Please try to learn about real humor and satire. Go visit a few humor and/or fans sites about these pop acts. You'll see that there is no blind obession.
And, you really really need to learn a little more about the person
you are speaking to before you condescend. What do you know about me? You
right to speak to me the way you did in your letter. I am not the typical 13-year-old *N Sync fanatic. Rather, I am a 20-year-old college student, majoring in special education and vocal performance.
I am amazed that a member of the church would be so disrepectful and rude to anyone.

I'm writing on behalf an article i read on your churches web page. I being a christian don't understand blaming the killing of that young girl on the outstand,and might i add chart-topping, pop group,NSYNC. I'm the15 year old daughter and sister of a pastor and I talked to my parents about it and they came up with the same theory i did, The Lyrics to that song is stating that a guy(not no certain guy) was wanting to get to know a girl and she left her chance so she isn't getting any more. The mother of that child should have sit down and told her that Justin Timberlake is a regular guy that needs respect and has a life of his own and he deserves one just like everyone else. What really tipped me off was that the young girl put a bullet through Britney Spears poster, i mean a poster! Her parents should have all t! he guns put up in the first place and the bullets in another! And they tottaly ignored the fact that she got the gun once and shot it. They should have done away with all the guns right then! I see no reason why they should even think about blaming the great guys of NSYNC for the death of that young girl. I do believe if you are a true christian you do not judge people! that is not our choice! I see no reason why you would ever say they are on some kind of drug or even related to it. If they are That is their choice and they will be punished in their afterlife. It is not our choice to tell them they are "in sin" and doing"Acid Rock" its not right and I'm telling you its not christian like! The only reason I'm writting this is because my family believe one person can make a difference and i would like a responce on this letter. I'm not writting it for nothing! and as far as the little girl thinking that Justin and she was seeing e! ach other is tottally understandable! I mean she a a young lady. All young ladys would like that. If he was to send someone his "I love yous" and letters it is to show his appreciation to his loyal fans. At the concert he loudly shouts "i love you" to everyone again just to respect his loyal fans. I have attached the words to the WHOLE song so maybe it could make more sence to the meaning of the song and its not to tell that little girl to go off and Kill her self. for what it is worth i send my prayers and wished to their family but i'm leaving you on this note: maybe if someone would come out with a song about putting your guns somewhere kids could not reach, Do you think they would make a better effort of putting it up? I think not they will ignore the warning just like always! I would like an appology and if i can't get that i would like an responce as soon as you can.
I recently reviewed the "NSYNC Killed My Baby!" article,
and I found it rather disturbing. Not because a girl shot herself over
the song "Bye Bye Bye", but for the simple fact that I don't understand
how anyone can take a so ng that seriously. The song does NOT talk about
killing yourself, or killing anyone else for that matter. It talks about
a couple breaking up. He's tired of her controlling his life and he's telling
her that he doesn't want to be with her anymore. He wants to be free. It's
only a song, and I'm sorry, but anyone who shoots themself because of a
song...and from being OVERLY OBSESSED with a member of the group...should
have had a big reality check from the parents. Another thing, she was only
13 years old, Justin Timberlake is 19..he'll be 20 in January...and I for
one, don't think he'd be stupid enough to risk his career or freedom by
dating someone that young. Ever heard of statutory rape? HELLO!!
Justin is too smart for anything like that, and so are the rest of the
*NSYNC members. I, and I'm sure the rest of the *NSYNC loving world, don't
appreciate this story. It may be true, but if the girls'
mother had been paying attention to her daughter, and done something sooner, her daughter would still be alive. So really it should be the mother's fault for not paying attention to her daughter. *NSYNC are wonderful entertainers, and they don't deserve to have a suicide dropped on their heads like this when it wasn't their fault. It's not their fault, and if the girl killed herself because she took one of their songs a little...excuse me...WAY too seriously...then that was her own problem.
I was sent to your Sister Taffy site and your Landover Site by a co-worker who thought I might find it amusing. Amused I was not. I found both of your sites to be offensive and evil. You claim to be believers of Christ and members of the Baptist faith. I am a protestant and I assure anyone who reads this that real christians do not worship the way that your Sister Taffy does. She is a cruel woman with hate and bigotry in her heart. Your entire church represents exactly what is driving people away from religion and towards a life filled with a spititual void. Your site contaminates the good name of Baptists everywhere and I hope that you are shut down.
There is nothing amusing about ridiculing persons with disabilities. For the record I am a member of LPA and find your references to little people as vulgar and archaic. I would love to talk face to face with your Sister Taffy and find out what has caused her to be so vindictive and cruel. She embodies all of the traits of someone who is emotionally disturbed and in need of help herself. Who is she to judge and cast stones when the bible clearly states that Judge unless you are judged. I doubt she would be mentally able to withstand the scrutiny of a thorough investigation of her practices. So maybe you should warn her that one day she will be held accountable for every hurtful word that she has said.
May my Lord have mercy on you and lead you to doing something that promotes love and unity with your free time.
Love in Christ,

are you aware of how many little girls write to *nsync hoping to get a reply?!?! i know a lot, including myself, that have written many, many times and have never gotten a responce, understandably because theyre busy people! thats why they have a fan club to take care of fan mail. about the photo justin supposedly sent penny...when you join the fan club, you receive a glossy picture of the boys, and at autograph signings and any contests that give away *nsync's autographs, they sign "love justin" or "love lance" or "love chris" etc...
another thing, have you read their thank-yous in all their albums? they ALL thank GOD, and they surley wouldnt have if they were fans of acid rock..."Dear Heavenly Father-lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, the power & the glory forvever. Amen" -Justin Timberlake's thank you in NSA
"...to my Heavenly Father for blessing me with this opportunity to reach
people with the gift you have given me. it is you who make this possible
and i am eternally grateful."
-Chris Kirkpatrick' thank you in NSA
"GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH" and without him, none of this would
-Lance Bass' thank-you in NSA
"First, I would like to thank God for the talent he has given me."
-Joey Fatone's thank-you in their debut album
"First, I would like to thank God for showing me and leading me down
a path as beautiful as music."
-JC Chasez's thank-you in their debut album
about the lyrics of bye, bye, bye....its a song about a break up! nsync
did not write it...a songwriter did! im sure penny could have found lyrics
to any other song & made it fit in her situation. what were her parents
doing letting her have access to a gun?! her mother did mention "my husband
keeps a lot of guns around the house and it bothered me that penny had
used one of them without asking. i mean the wall behind the poster
was runied." she noted that she was 'bothered' by the fact that
penny used a gun....shouldnt she have done something more than be 'bothered' like putting the guns out of penny's reach....or even better...get rid of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thanks for your time.....i hope that you put take this letter into condsideration
*kiwi * <americain_girl82
We are so anxious to her your response to this. Please write back!

As a believer (not in your cultish-like practices but in God) I fail to see why God would look down on your cult/organization with pride. I probably expect an email saying that I am "playing hopscotch with the homosexuals" (which I am not. I am happily married) But be rest assured when the proverbial trumpet blares, you and your silly band of narrow minded, low intellect cretons will be left behind.
I have attached an interview with your pastor. Clearly the man is deranged or seriously misguided. Have a listen. Of course you wont. You probably think I'm the devil or something. You are afraid. http://www.fes-net.com/_private/lob/fredwlir.ram
Best Regards (< though it pains me to wish any one with your beliefs
A local man (here in Canada) is being sued by Big Brother for stealing their logo and using it on his web site. I have saved your web pages with the logo's and are forwarding them to the legal department of CBS. I see 2 possible good things coming of this.....1 you will be sued. (and guess what they would do with that money.......probably feed the starving children of Ethiopia with it...or at least that's what they should do.) 2. You will get publicity, and judging by your pastor "fred" charisma, he will undoubtedly show the world in a larger forum that you are a bunch of hypocrite, white supremacists with a real need to be removed from the gene pool.
What is Landover's satire directed against? It is fruitless. What is your purpose? Sure the church has many things that need change, but the efforts that I see on your website fail to produce change, to persuade or dissuade. Turn your energies to attack the enemy and serve God with your apparent gifted imaginations. I am a soldier in the U.S. Army for the past 11 years-serving my country, however, I will always try to be, first of all, an effective soldier for the Lord in His Army. What are you all serving? What good are your efforts? The statements nailed to the Whittenburg door were effective and productive and came from a radical who wanted to serve God. I think that what Landover is producing is a product of your "heart" and ineffective. I find it sad.
"Love your enemies and do good to them that hate and despitefully use you," is the despicable philosophy of the spaniel that rolls upon its back, when kicked. Obey it, O' reader, and you and all your posterity to the tenth generation shall be irretrievably and literally damned. They shall be hewers of wood, and carriers of water, degenerates, Gibeonites. But hate your enemies with a whole heart, and if a man smite you on one cheek, smash him down; smite him hip and thigh for self-preservation is the highest law. He who turns the "other cheek" is a cowardly dog -- a Christian dog.
Give him blow for blow, scorn for scorn, doom for doom; with compound
interest liberally added thereunto. Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, aye four-fold,
a hundred-fold. Make yourself a terror to your adversary and when he goeth
his way, he will possess much additional wisdom to ruminate over. Thus
shall you make yourself respected in all the walks of life, and your spirit
- your immortal spirit - shall live, not in an intangible paradise, but
in the brains and thews of your aggressive
and unconquerable sons. After all, the true proof of manhood is a splendid progeny; and it is a scientific axiom that the timid animal transmits timidity to its descendants.
See if you bible has a answer for this.
You People are the cancer that is destroying society.
Satan Rules, Your god is weak
you are suposed to be a church no unsaved alowed??? whats that all about???
you sound very ignorant and why would a 19 year old start a relationship
a little girl?? you all sound very demented and you do not know what really goes on. bye bye bye is a good song about a relationship going bad because the girl is cheating on a guy.
AS A FELLOW CHRISTAIN I AM ASHAMED ANOTHER CHRISTIAN WOULD ACT THIS WAY AND NSYNC SHOULD SUE YOU FOR ALL OF TH FALSATIONS IN THIS ARTICLE. i HOPE IN THE FUTURE YOU WILL HAVE BETTER JUDGEMENT ON SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
A DEVOTED CHRISTIAN AND NSYNC FAN,
I'm sure your mailbox is full of emails similar to
this one, but i ask that you read this in its entirety. This site
came to my attention through a friend who sent me a link. When i
clicked on it, it went straight to the page with the fake article entitled
"*NSYNC lyrics found in suicide note." I read the article and wasn't
sure exactly what to think, until I read the fine print at the bottom which
stated that the article was a parody. I was confused by it, since
I was still under the illusion that this was the website of an actual church.
But after reading through many guestbook entries, I realized what this
site actually is. To me, it just seems like a colossal waste of time.
All you are trying to do is make people angry, so you can find humor in
their frustrations. It seems like you have put an awful lot of work
into trying to lead people away from Christ, and it has prompted me to
ask why. That is one of the main reasons I'm writing this email,
is to ask you that. But aside from that, I think you know that the
happiness you're getting from the creation of this site isn't real.
I pray that this will get old to you- sooner, rather than later.
For your sake,
and for all the people who now have false portrayals of the christian faith. You have a God-shaped whole in your heart, and though you might not see or feel it now, you'll eventually realize that something is missing from your life. For right now, all I can do is try my best to tell you how I feel and pray for you. Although you're denying Him now, God loves you more than you can even imagine. It's a love that's unconditional and won't ever stop. So laugh at this letter now if you'd like, and call me whatever you want, but I know that everything I've said is the truth. Hopefully you'll realize it's the truth also. God Bless.
1. IN YOUR DAILY WRITING AND MOVIE REVIEWS YOU DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT COLORS, SEXUAL INTERESTS, AND EVEN RELIGIONS WHEN IN FACT THESE PEOPLE ARE MORE WORTHY OF PRAISE THEN YOURSELF WHO DESERVE NONE
2. YOU WORK TO TAKE WONDERFUL MOVIES (EVEN CHILDREN'S) AND BOOKS OFF SHELVES IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN AWAY FROM CORRUPTION WHEN IN FACT YOU ARE TWISTING ETHICS AND DRAINING EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES OF USEFULNESS.
3. YOU CAN FIND SEXUAL NATURE IN LITERALLY ANYTHING!!! EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE NO PROOF OR YOUR CLAIMS ARE ABSURD YOU CONTINUE TO BRAINWASH GOOD PEOPLE WITH YOUR SITE
4. FINALLY, NEARLY EVERY PEICE OF EMAIL YOU RECIEVE COMPLAINS ABOUT YOUR NARROWMINDEDNESS (HERES ANOTHER) DOESN'T THAT TELL YOU ANYTHING
WE'RE NOT THE DEVILS, YOU ARE...
ROT IN FIERY HELL YOU SHITHEADS
The last thing this poor child needs is to be ridiculed and abused! The Bible may not condone homosexuality, which I do not either, but I also know that God loves all of his children, and no one on this earth has the power to judge or persecute, only God has that power!
By behaving in this manner and abusing your children you are being the sinners you appear to be hating! The Bible also says hate is wrong! The only objective you people will attain by treating children this way, is teaching these children hurt, pain, and hatred!
In the long run you people are raising your children to be angry,
murderers, rapists, among many other unfathomable possibilities! You should
be ashamed of yourselves and what you are promoting in the name of God,
the Bible, and Christianity! You give the church, religion,humanity,and
true God fearing people a bad name! I hope you show this to all the followers
you have around you, and may God have pity on your disgusting souls! I
can only pray for the poor children you
are abusing in this terrible way! Praying for you to see the true light of God!
Imagine for a moment if Jesus had expressed or implied 'Unsaved not
welcome'. How many of you would actually be propagating these obviously
errant teachings had you not at some point heard the good news of Jesus
Christ? How many of you would even think you could be saved?
If the unsaved can't come to church to hear the gospel, other than street
evangelism, how can they hear? And if they don't hear, how can they
believe? What if someone wants to bring a friend to church who isn't
saved but they can't unless they get saved? Well then the church
would be pretty empty and what you have amounts to nothing more than an
rather than the inclusive community the early church was and, in some places, is today. I'm not liberal by any means. In fact I consider myself to be a conservative, sola scriptura Christian, saved by faith alone, in Christ alone, by grace alone. I have no doubt that many of you are sincere and love Jesus Christ. What I've read here frightens me though! You are no more sanctified by your clothes, your food, or your works, than you are saved by them. Please tell me you don't actually fine people who are late to church. Are those who are without sin casting the first stone here? If this is supposed to be some brand of church discipline I think you've missed it entirely though it works well for the humongous facility you keep and the pockets of all those paid staff members. How many of your lay people are
involved in ministry? Do the pastor equip the saints for service or are they paid to teach them false doctrines and useless rituals? All of this begs the question; which Jesus do you claim to believe in? Show me one place in scripture that condones what your doing, just one. These are just a few questions any thinking Christian would ask. I eagerly await your response!
A concerned brother.
Sounds like you might be homophobic yourself. I am a WWF viewer and happily nail my girlfriend at least a few times a week. I don't think I ever wished for The Rock to "climb over the rails and carry me off to a love nest."
As for the words "smack down and pile driven" (a homosexual catch phrase that does not require any imagination, and we dare not describe here) I had no idea about that. My opinion is you would either have to be a homosexual and/or a drag queen yourself to have so much carnal knowledge of homosexual language and activities.
It may also sound like you may be jealous of Ted Turner and his "cable empire," could it be that you are jealous of a man that has worked his whole life and not collected "offerings to God" ? Tell me, kind sir, did Jesus buy you those underwear your wearing now or did that poor old lady in the first pew toss them in the offering plate so that her soul might be saved from Ted Turner himself?
From this Quote, "Landover pastor, Deacon Fred, called on Christians
everywhere to "take up the cross of Jesus." He said, "You might have to
take up that cross and smack a 400lb homo in the head with it, but when
they get knocked down, they'll finally know that they are all down for
the count when Jesus steps in the ring. Amen." Now I'm just curious what
kind of a Christian would incite such violence??? Maybe the kind
of man that could not make the full commitment to Priesthood
cause he likes to be married and have sex? Or maybe the kind of person who isn't really a deacon at all, and just like the word before his name because of all the benefits?
Well, what ever the reason for all this nonsense I find it hard to believe that you must dig for such and issue to preach to all your lost souls, maybe the violence issue would be a better attack next time but I can see that you OK with violence. So when a 400lb faggot or a professional wrestler kicks the living shit out of you for saying such things don't say I didn't tell you so.
By the way Ted Turner doesn't have anything to do with the WWF, Ted Turner owned the WCW, but it's not like any of your "facts" were strait anyway.
p.s. Reply if you dare, you can change this letter all you like but
I'm sorry to tell you this, but you have all been suckered into a cult. Actually, I'm not sorry. You people are all fucks. You are disgusting examples of what God intended to be decent humans. So you are really going to go to a third world country, where parents and their children alike are dying of starvation, and you are going to have a big banquet right in front of them, and then prohibit your minions from giving them anything. Are you even going to pay the people that you force to serve you? I hope that the local guerilla force over there blasts the fucking shit out of you. You and your cynical attitude, your blasphemous thoughts, your beligerent actions, and your violent discord. I would like you to please put me on your enemy list at the Landover site. My name is Tim Rush, and I hate you. So what are you going to do you tight fucks? Sit there and take it like the women that you are. That's what my best guess is. Wallow in your self-righteousness while you still can, you Satanist fools. I am joining forces with Objective: Landover shutdown. I hope to watch you burn in hell, you secular trash. May the lord have mercy on you all!
Signed, with hatred,
How sad you must be, and how dare you condemn anyone other than yourself for living such a pathetic sad lie of a life.
I am gay and proud to be a child of a loving, gentle and powerful GOD. I find very little homoerotic behavior in the WWF, if it exsisted I would watch it, but it doesn't except maybe to a few very closeted homosexuals like yourself. Trust me you would have a lot more fun at a gay circut party than watching the WWF.
If you were truley a spiritual man you would spread love, peace and charity not hate fear and ignorance!!!!
God Bless You
