Since I published my last letter to the S.F. Chronicle about the religious persecution that is taking place in this state in regards to Prop. 8, I have had people call the house and today, I received a letter. Of course, this person didn’t leave his/her name. I knew what it was right away because one of the stamps said "Liberalism is a mental disorder" and it didn’t have a return address. The postmark was from Oakland California. I should have filed it in the round basket folder right away. But I didn’t. Here it is (and I have followed the fonts that came with the letter):
Kevin, old boy, you’ve got SHIT for brains. It is NOT "Religious persecution, plain and simple." Many, MANY people such as myself who are atheists, free thinkers, agnostics, secularists and just plain NON -BELIEVERS are totally AGAINST homosexual "marriage" for many excellent and unassailable reasons that have been repeated and publicized for years and years.
ARE YOU SO DAMN DUMB THAT YOU CAN’T COMPREHEND THESE REASONS OR ARE YOU SO SWALLOWED UP BY THE UNADULTERATED BULLSHIP SPEWED OUT CONSTANTLY AND INCESSANTLY BY THE HOMOSEXUAL FACTION IN THIS GREAT COUTNRY THAT YOU CAN’T THINK CLEARLY AND OBJECTIVELY!?! GET YOUR STUPID HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS!!!
Well. There is a lot I could say to this coward who wrote and refused to leave his name. I guess he realized that he doesn’t have the mental capacity to debate these issues with me. And I think this person is lying when he (I’m assuming this is from a male) says that he is a free thinker. Unlikely, considering the letter he wrote.
Anyway, Mr. Anonymous–I can’t wait to show this to my class on Monday. I mentioned to them that I was receiving phone calls at home about my letter. Now I can show them a piece of mail I’ve received. You will be voting Yes on 8, but I am going to convince my class, because of your letter, to all vote NO on 8. All 20-something. Thanks for that. I’m sure you will be happy to know this.
