Well, I received another email from our dear Former Reader (seems he wasn’t quite so ‘former’ as he would have us believe). It was as long, badly written, and convoluted as his first, so I won’t post the entire thing. I will tell you, though, that in addition to berating me (again) for sharing my views… on my blog… he spouted this priceless little tidbit…
“You cant say nothing bad about Rush Limbaugh, he is a TRUE American who deserves respect!!! You bleeding heart liberals and the so called Christians who follow that piece of crap you call a blog and dont know nothing about the BIBLE are the danger to AMERICAIN, your going to destroy us by turning the country into Sadam and Gamora, Rush and the people who follow him are the only ones who can save us!!!”
Hey, isn’t “Sadam and Gamora” that new resort in Florida? I heard that place was pretty cool!
Anyway… “Rush and the people who follow him are the only ones who can save us!!!”
Really, dear Former Reader? Really? Rush ‘The Festering Boil on the Ass of Humanity’ Limbaugh? (Hmmm… guess I can say something bad about him, eh?) Well, if a neo-con ‘savior’ who spews forth ignorance, hatred, and fear every time he opens his mouth is the person you want to follow (into the depths of Hell), feel free. That is certainly your right. I, however, am going to head down the road toward what I hope will be a more enlightened and tolerant “AMERICAIN” (with a stop at “Sadam and Gamora” for a weekend of fun in the sun, natch) with people who don’t spew ignorance, hate, and fear with every breath; with those bleeding heart liberals, moderates, conservatives, free-thinkers, and “so-called Christians” (you know, the ones who actually try to live by Christ’s example… which, in case you didn't know, had much more to do with love, acceptance, and forgiveness than with keeping gay people from marrying); with anyone willing to work together (imagine the concept!) for a world we can all live in, because, believe it or not, that's what most of us truly want.
But hey, if you change your mind and decide to join us, we’ll leave the light on for ya’.
Oh, and dear Former Reader, if you’d like to reply to this post, please feel free to do so… in the ‘comments’ section… you know, a public forum, where other (current) readers (including those “so-called Christians”) can respond to you directly (and feel free to grow some balls and leave your name, too). Otherwise, don’t bother. I won’t be opening any more of your emails. I said I’d defend your right to say what you like… but I don’t have to listen (or read, as the case may be). As far as I’m concerned, you (and those like you), have nothing of relevance to say… well, not to anyone with an ounce of intelligence and a shred of humanity, anyway.
And PS… to those who asked, I don’t believe our dear Former Reader was actually ever really a reader. I believe he just ‘happened’ upon a post he didn’t agree with and had to spout his two cents… anonymously (natch). Given some of the things I’ve written about in the past, I feel certain he would have felt the need to open his trap before now and he would have become our 'dear Former Reader' a long time ago!
