e-mail love

is there a nice way to get your relatives that you hate their intolerant conservative e-mail forwards?

I could just filter them out, but then they'd just go on assuming that I didn't mind getting them. They just assume everything is normal and everyone agrees with them. sometimes I think that people who send e-mail forwards hardly ever bother to read them... if you reply saying that you disagree you get the, "Oh lighten up it's just a forward!" CRAP.

I got one once that said (I'm not kidding) that It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up and BE QUIET or live somewhere else!!!

Yes, apparently America is all about blindly accepting popular opinion and ignoring irrelevant minorities. It wasn't founded by, um, people who felt they were in the minority. or anything.

or immigrants. those are my other favorite forwards to get. I got one that said that 30% of federal prison inmates are illegal immigrants... how is that even possible? the whole e-mail forward cycle makes me think afraid that the average person forms all their opinions based on contrived bullshit.
