Dave Silverman and Dave Muscato have been on Fox News a couple times recently and that always prompts a deluge of hate mail, which they are kind enough to post on their Facebook page. Here are a few of the recent ones, completely unedited and in all their glory.
“Ha ha , you make me laugh . you know I work with Many Athiests, I find them to be the most uninteresting people , arrogant, pompous, lacking in passion. I will take the company of a uneducated redneck Christian over an Atheist. they are sooo boring. nothing but elitist , intellectual dribble. it is not just about intellect, it is about content of character. Atheism seems to lack this. I have news for you…..Atheism is a religion!!! it is a system of beliefs about God, and it is as arrogant, and totalitarian as any other religion. you are no better then the religions you claim are forcing themselves upon you. you are forcing your beliefs on others……. this makes you just as bad. Atheism is a religion. a world run by Atheists, is a world without imagination, and passion. A dead world. it is you Athiests that need to grow up, in believing that you are the superior life form. its nothing but Smug , elitist arrogance. but you are good for a laugh.” – Steven La Force
Random capitalization? Check. Terrible grammar? Check. Can’t spell “atheist”? Check. Totally oblivious to the fact that he’s being smug and arrogant while accusing others of the same thing? Check.
“ITS A GOOD THING YOU WERE NOT IN MY PRESENTS WHEN YOU SAID THOSE THINGS ON TV!” – RC
Ooh, a vague threat and he uses “presents” instead of “presence.” Bravo!
“You make me sick and I feel you should be gathered up, along with your fellow atheists, and removed from MY country!” – Denise Magliochette
“After listening to you on the Factor and I could not be more outraged and angered with you and ALL who feel and act like you. We Christians, don’t give a dam what you think or feel and you have no right telling us how to feel or not feel. As far as I’m concerned, this is my country, a country that was founded on Christian/Judeo beliefs. Is is on our money, our federal buildings, in the constitution, etc, YES religion does cross into government. However it is celebrated by people, as far as getting too far from the religious aspects, is not your concern or your business. If you don’t believe, that is your decision or fault and you do not have the right to tell people in this country what is or isn’t practiced, believed, or needed in the lives of Christians. I hope after people heard you, all of them band together and really express what they think of you and the American Atheists Organization IN PERSON! I certainly would of liked to have been face to face with you……” – Denise Magliochette (she emailed me twice)
Denise, you seem upset. You can’t seem to articulate anything like a coherent reason why, but you’re clearly agitated. I suggest decaf.
“Satan is with you. He is deceiving you. He is leading you all to hell. You must repent now to be saved. You must accept Jesus as your savior. Now” – George Pappas
Wow George, you’re the first person to ever tell them that. I’m sure everyone at the AA office converted immediately upon hearing this.
