We’ve been getting more hate mail here at the Texas Freedom Network. Some of it features the same tired insults we often get:
TFN are Marxist in sheep skins. You people are killing America.
Some clearly struggle with anger issues:
#1 I AIN’T your friend.
#2 Is Jesus, the Christ, part of your so called right-wing extremists? You need to go F**K yourself!
Hmmm… We doubt Jesus would approve that last sentence. And we think he would be appalled by what many on the right do supposedly in his name these days.
Other writers are concerned for our eternal souls:
REPENT!!! Turn to the Lord JESUS CHRIST.
Stop supporting the murder of infants and embryos.
Start supporting traditional marriage the way GOD created us to be, and stop supporting perversion for which the disobedient will be judged and punished.
Again I urge you to REPENT, for JESUS said, “unless you REPENT you will all likewise perish!” (That means you will go to HELL!!!)
Ah. Thanks for clearing that up.
The recent PBS airing of The Revisionaries, the award-winning documentary about the culture wars at the Texas State Board of Education, also brought emails. Some folks praised TFN’s work in countering efforts by the state board’s religious-righters to politicize public school classrooms. Others, like the following writer, aren’t impressed:
I live in Colorado not Texas.
I was offended by Kathy Miller on the PBS show.
God is a whole part of who and what we are as a nation(our Founding Fathers were God fearing brilliant men).
This is not a “right” or “Left” issue………………its about taking God out of our school system.
You should be ashamed of yourselves for fighting against the morals and values of a Christian Nation.
Also, don’t confuse the “separation of church and state” and then teach our children incorrectly.
By the way, if you’re interested in screening The Revisionaries for a group, TFN can help you do that. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
