    I would say that it should be a lesson for me, to stop using weird analogies

I learned this lesson the hard way too. I got crucified (ha!) once when I made a weird analogy about a religious topic on an atheist website. I learned that a lot of religious and anti-religious people take their analogies very literally . . . and seriously.

I try to keep my weird analogies to non-religious topics, if possible.
