Guys, we get a lot of great fan mail. I’ve maintained for a long time that we have the best readers of any political website in America. (Yes, Larry… you included!) However, we get a lot of pretty hateful e-mails as well. Sometimes, you just have to share the love, so I’ve blotted out the identifying information of this morning’s Evangelical E-Mailer of the Week.
Some of our hateful e-mailers could learn a lot from this guy:
1. Use a clever derogatory name for me. Dean, in the above example, selected “C–t” followed by “face.”
2. However, if you’re sending a rude, insulting, profane e-mail, it’s important to remember to turn off the automatic Christian, inspirational signature line. It somewhat lessens the effect of the “c–tface” slur.
3. Work in the usage of “Satan” or “Hitler” in some clever way. Dean, above, says that we are “Evangelicals for Satan.” Extra points for calling us Judeo-Communist!
4. After you are finished degrading your recipient, it’s nice to add a one-line presentation of the gospel!
Though, this letter didn’t include any physical threats like some do, hopefully Dean’s e-mail will help some of you other haters to up your games! Also, I was happy to note from Dean’s e-mail address that he is writing from a Christian ministry.
Oh my. I googled the guy and he is NOT from a Christian ministry at all (though he would claim it.) He is an anti-Semite, pure and simple. Ugh.
