I think you're reading far more into posts than have been said, Lou. You state that others have said they were "Catholic, Morman,Jewish,Witnesses for Jahovah, Wiccain, Budahist, Zen" before, but I don't recall every one of these faiths being mentioned by others. Some have been but I think you're going beyond & reading what you think they may be.
Besides, I do have a strong faith & believe in Jesus. But I KNEW that Wendy was just being silly - goofy - & while not everyone might have laughed at it, I again KNEW she wasn't being serious & I'm sure they did too. I was NOT insulted or upset & got a smile from her goofiness.
Should everything we say be couched in serious terms, no levity at all allowed? When W.C. Fields was asked if he liked children. He said he did if they were properly cooked. It's obvious that even if he wasn't fond of children, that he was joking - he didn't eat children, any more than Wendy drinks blood, regardless of whether she does or doesn't believe in Jesus.
It was a JOKE, nothing more, nothing less. Does every last statement made here have to be carefully elaborated on for every possible misinterpretation?
