When a general Facebook question goes oh so very wrong!

I recently posted a question on Facebook. I wanted to know if atheism is compatible with the principle of the Law of Attraction presented in the book "The Secret". I think they are but I wanted to know what they thought in FB land. I received the following response from a person I thought was my friend: "YOU GUYS NEED JESUS DON'T SEND ME ANY ATHEIST ANYTHING!!!!"

Today I received the following e-mail from the person who posted that response:

"I did not mean to attack you or anyone on facebook I am just really can't believe that you are an Atheist... I love you so much and I know
that you have had some negative experiences and interaction with people
that call themselves Christians. For that I am sorry but I really will
have in depth conversation with you because I respect your right to
believe what you want but God is love and he lives in you whether you
acknowledge it or not. I have some books I would like to send to you and
apologize if I hurt your feelings in any way. I was just frustrated
with everyone denying God because of the things that stupid humans do or
have done to them!!!! I LOVE YOU and never meant to offend or hurt you
so please accept my apology and I look forward to us having this
conversation with you. Because after all I am stupid human too :)"

How do I delicately shut this crap down? Any suggestions?

Avoid those who are vexations to the spirit.

have done to them!!!!"
