ref (append), re: religious oriented message subject lines

        Over the last couple of days, I've notices a new
class of SPAM targeting -- this time attempting to get
religious oriented victims to open the malicious email.
Some selected email subject lines seen already are listed
below.  In watching & tracking SPAM over the last two
years or so, I believe this is the first time I've seen
a religious oriented targeting campaign.

        I would suspect that the same perpetrator is
responsible for all the items cited below -- all
seemingly part of the same campaign.
