You know, after my last column, I didn’t think there was anyone who would be low enough to rise to defend the late Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church. When even the usual gang of haters fell silent (the ones who show up every week to tell me how uninteresting they find the column they read every week), I thought there would finally be someone so vile, even the wingnuttiest of the wingnuts wouldn’t throw in their lot with them.
I was wrong.
Thank you, ******* **** of Carthage, NC for your letter (yes, an actual mailed letter) that proved to me there actually are people in my own town who will defend picketing the funerals of slain children, murder victims, and soldiers fallen in the service of their country, all in the name of hate and in the name of God. Thank you, ******* **** of Carthage, NC for proving that the well of hate, ignorance and abject stupidity truly has no bottom.
PS: Thank you especially for attaching a copy of the column to your note, because I certainly would not have known what I’d written otherwise. Also thanks for attaching the obit from Time Magazine with the highlighted sentence that you think proves your point, but which actually does nothing of the sort. If you hadn’t done that, I might not have realized I was dealing with a complete dimwit.
Yours in Christ, D
(Updated to remove the actual name, since this sort of idiot would use it to whine and play the martyr.)
