Hate Mail

This page of hate mail is dedicated to the heroic, infamous and original,
Rollen Stewart.
Every day I try to be more and more like him but I remain just a feeble imitation.

Their letters are in yellow, whilst mine are in black & white.

Subject: Dress up Jesus Hate Mail

Bob,
I suppose you could call me a bible thumper. I should be offended by the Jesus dress up site, but it's actually funny. God and Jesus are both big boys, and should be able to take a little ribbing. There's no point in quoting scriptures since you've seen most of them already. Similarly, there's no point in threatening you with hell or purgatory, you know about that too.

What appals me is the hate mail. I'd like to think the hate mail is your own creation, but I fear it isn't. Are those all real letters, or did you make them up?

If they are real, the absence of well reasoned criticism of your site leads me to believe that either you only post letters that make christians look ridiculous, or that no intelligent christian would bother writing to complain about your site. I strongly suspect that the latter is the case. Would you care to tell me what the selection process is for the hate mail you post?

Sincerely,

Lard Heppus


First of all, yes, all of the letters are real. Never, (not even once) have I fabricated a hate letter and posted it on my site. As far as I know every letter on my site was written by a real person who really believes what they are saying. That's why I include the email addresses on the letters. That's so you can check for yourself. Go on, try it!

As for the selection process, every day I print out all of the most recent emails I've gotten regarding my site. I take that pile of pages to a coffee shop, then I go through and write out responses to as many as I can while I pour caffeine into my system. I really love answering these letters. I know that I'm fortunate to have so many people interested in what I've done, whether they hate it or love it (although the complaints are far more interesting to reply to than the praise).

And yes, the threats of hell and purgatory would be wasted on me. I commend you for having the foresight to assume that anyone who lives on planet earth has already been familiarized with the fantastic claims of the Bible. It's all such silly behavior from adults. So so silly.

Fear the worst, Lard. These people really do exist, feel the way they say they do, and email me about it like I'll be impressed. And you gotta figure out why those types latch onto your beliefs. The belief you pretend is for sane people.

Thank you for your question.
Bob


Bob,

Thank you for taking the time to look for my picture. I'm flattered that you did so.

I took you up on your suggestion that I contact a few of the people who sent you hate mail. So far two have responded. They both appear to be real people who are sincere to the point of irrational obsession about their beliefs.

When questioned about his beliefs, one launched into a long rant, while ignoring what I asked him. He seems to favor capital punishment despite the commandment that "Thou shalt not kill".

The other told me that Atheism created Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and Castro. If memory serves, Hitler was raised catholic and later converted to Lutheranism, and Stalin studied in an eastern orthodox seminary before going into politics. I don't know for sure, but it's a pretty safe bet that both Mussolini and Castro were rasied catholic. Funny how god is creator of all except when it comes to things one doesn't like.

If the lord works in mysterious ways, then atheism is even more mysterious.

If people like this believe in god, I may have to re-examine my beliefs.

Lard

Honestly, how could go to sleep at night knowing that what you are doing is wrong.

Subject: Dissapointed!!!

Not that i'm matters to you, but quite frankly i'm very dissapointed that you would make a mockery some people's belief. Honestly, how could go to sleep at night knowing that what you are doing is wrong. I understand there is freedom of speech, etc. but really did you feel you had to go about this path to make an extra buck or two. May you realize that what you are doing is unethical and simply DISGUSTING!!!

Elaiza,
An extra buck or two?!?!? How about an extra HUNDRED BUCKS OR TWO?! Yeah! Ha ha! I bet you weren't expecting to see those kind of numbers! And just so you know, I have no problem going to sleep at night, thank you very much!
I take sleeping pills.

I am currently studying Graphic Design and have learnt through writing specifications that anything I design must not offend or insult any cultural or religious group.

Bob,

I'm writing to complain about your dress up Jesus website. As a Christian I find it highly offensive. I am currently studying Graphic Design and have learnt through writing specifications that anything I design must not offend or insult any cultural or religious group. I hope that in your further work you would kindly consider this point.

Ms Rogers

Ms. Rogers,
So what you're telling me is it's against the rules to design something that might offend or insult a cultural or religious group? And you want me to consider this? Are you talking about when you're laying out a 7up magazine ad you're not allowed to Jesus-bash? Is that what you're trying to say? Or are you trying to tell me that in general offensive ideas aren't allowed to be illustrated? Please be more specific.

I have something I'd like you to consider now. What about the more important aspect of graphic design you and I call "Art?" Does that same rule apply towards Art? Is it also against the rules of Art to possibly offend those said parties. If these rules DO in fact apply to Art I'd ask you please send me the boundaries I need to stay within before I begin my next project.

Thank you.
Bob

 

Your site is stupid stupid stupid stupid … and pointless, and stupid.

I am not offended by your site, however I wish to express to you my opinion of how stupid it is.

Your site is stupid stupid stupid stupid … and pointless, and stupid.

You also look very stupid in that devil costume. So stupid … so stale….

So unoriginal…

Well jeesh! AT LEAST I TRIED! You don't have to get all mean about it!
In my opinion it's better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.
Like you've never had a bad idea ever in YOUR life.

Your email was very hurtful to me. I hope you can see how insensitive you just were to me.

Here's something you should consider. What would Jesus have to say about the way you treated me? The bible says "Treat Me (Jesus) as you would treat My brother."

Next time THINK before you act.
LOVE,
Bob

This message is directed to Gemma Wyatt and Environment Agency Inc.

As in accordance with your email discloser I would like to submit an official request for use of the information enclosed in the email sent June 2, 2005, 11:51:03 AM EDT from the desk of gemma.wyatt@environment-agency.gov.uk. The purpose of use is to make fun of it in a jerky, wise-ass kind of way and make a spectacle out of the misspelling of the word "disrespectfull." This spectacle might also include (but is not limited to) harping on how such an important corporation like Environment Agency Inc. has hired somebody who can't even get one nine word sentence without error (A sentence to defend his Lord God no less).

All of this I hope to do in complete accordance with that postscript rules and wavers you tag onto every email your employees send to religious-spoof websites.

Dutifully,
Bob Smith.
