For the 8th day Before Christmas, religion gave to me...
Freedom From Religion Foundation founders receive e-mails full of "God's love"
I found this article on The Paper from Madison, WI, that makes a profile on Freedom From Religion Foundation founders. It is long, but very insightful about the goals this group has, most of them about separation of church and state instead of "preaching" atheism.
What draws my attention is the hate mail they receive, which has a very high probability to have been sent by christians, or at least believers in god who are not very happy about the FFRF goals:
"Take a hike with your f*ckin' lawsuit against In God We Trust! God haters, maggots! — Nedd Kareiva
"Dear Atheists, God is going to strike you dead for messing with religion. When you, your staff or their families have a bad accident, don't say I didn't warn you or that you don't deserve it because you do. You must be stopped at any costs." God's Squad, Jim Franklin
"Just read an article about your long nose sticking into other people's business. (It's going to get broken, you know.) SO, STICKIT WHERE THE GOD MADE SUN DOESN'T SHINE. — A GRY HAIRED GROUCHY OLD S.O.B. P.S. DON'T PICK FIGHTS WITH OLD PEOPLE. YOU WILL NOT WIN. THEY WILL DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE THEN LET GOD SORT YOU OUT."
I wonder if these people are stupid enough not to see the irony in their belief in a God that loves us all and yet, they write emails so full of hatred. Of course, the FFRF is not the only atheist entity that has received hate mail.
And if you did not have enough, you can always check the hate mail the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster gets.
Ah... believers. So much "love of god" and hypocrisy packed in the same thing.
