We Got Mail!
Sure enough, after my post yesterday on respecting the Constitution and opposing theocracy, the hate mail started pouring in, from self-labeled “Christians.” There are four of them this morning, but I’ll just post this one because the others are banal and uninteresting. (The contact form has an explicit notice: “Messages may be published in our weblog, unless you request otherwise.”)
The title of this one was “not a hate mail…”, which seems a bit inaccurate.
….but I respectfully take a parting dissent to your claim that Christian activism that “desires” to change the Constitution is “not conservative and unamerican.”
Sir, wishing to change the Constitution is NOT unAmerican…. if you accept that yours is a minority view and not able to pass. Taking up arms when you can’t get your way? THAT is “unAmerican.”
By labeling all Christians who refuse to shut up and simply “pray, pay and obey” secularists like you as un-American, you have just consigned a good 1/3 of the population to un-personhood…. and 2/3 of the GOP to non-participation in a representative government whose takes they must still pay.
No sir. We’re here, we’re Christian. Get used to us. Otherwise, get used to outer darkness yourselves. The GOP CANNOT WIN WITHOUT US.
When the jackboots of the left come for YOU, who will you count on for support? You can’t shit on our altars and then ask for our help. It doesn’t work that way.

Good grief. What do you even say to something like that?

I wonder if Richard L. Kent, Esq., realizes that he’s echoing a slogan used by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender movement?
“We’re here, we’re Christian. Get used to us.”
“We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it.”

Here’s Richard L. Kent, Esq., posting a comment for an article at the Times Online:
A most wise man once said, “By their fruits shall ye know them.” What are the fruits of scientific atheism when applied to human behavior and governance?
Auschwitz. Gulag. The Laogai. Reeducation camps. Babi Yar. Dachau. Srebrenica. The Cultural Revolution.
To Hell with atheism, Mr. Whyte.
