Halo said:Now, it's being reported on VH1.
I'm really getting a little frustrated and fed up with it all. If it's true......cool. But if it's a gag, it's not really funny anymore. It may be funny to Tool and Maynard and anyone else involved in it, but I don't find it amusing anymore. If the laugh was at our expense, be done with it. Tell us what fools we were for thinking it could possibly be true and get over it.
And if it is a gag, and it has gone this far, beyond just the Tool site, it's kind of cruel. What of the fans that do believe in Jesus, what of the christian fans......isn't this kind of like a slap in their face to use this as a gag?
With all the "have faith" and "god bless" e-mails of Maynard's and it ending up being a joke.....is it really that funny?
I lost my faith quite awhile ago. But what of those that do have faith.....is this gag funny to them, I wonder?
And even though my faith is lost, I don't make fun of those that have faith.
At first this seemed silly, but now, going as far as it has, (if it is a gag) it's lost it's humor, in my opinion.
Yes, I have to agree with you Halo. I've been remaining silent about this for the last few days but I've got to say that this is getting out of hand. I don't usually go around announcing this but I am a born again Christian and I do enjoy Maynard's art. My first reaction to hearing about his possible conversion to christianity was one of sheer joy. I could think of no better thing to happen to Maynard than for him to come to Christ. I've been praying for him for years. However, if this is a joke then it is quite insensitive and in poor taste. Why ostracize any of your fans? What happened to all that talk about compassion? I confess that I would feel differently about Maynard as a person if this ends up being joke. I am surprised it's gotten past the website though and on to vh1 and mtv. I hope the truth comes out soon. It seems silly to play this up with such mystery.
