going to keep it a secret whether
or not this is a picture of the following letter-writer. But
I do have to state that Alison asked to remain anonymous (except
for her first name).
have a lot of friends who like your site, and I don't want to
be ribbed by them... besides, I think those goofy pictures are
I'm not an atheist, but I am a big fan of your site. I was
attracted by Jesus Dress Up, but I became a faithful reader
of your hate mail and found the forum you've created much
I just finished
reading Hate Mail page 46 and I could relate with Tyler, as
I myself am a recovering addict. I experienced the same sort
of "spiritual awakening" several years ago, complete with
the burst of emotion that Tyler attributes to the Holy Spirit.
Actually, the result was quite different for me. The burst
of emotion that I felt followed the realization that I didn't
have to believe anything I was taught if it didn't make sense
to me (I was raised a Catholic). If God was so perfect and
loving and understanding, why would he care how (or if) anybody
worshipped him? I was breaking the chains imposed on me by
believe in God because I find it useful to do so---not because
I'm 100% he exists or because I think my belief system is
the "right" one. I'm open to anything except to hearing "We
have the only true way! If you don't listen to us, you'll
go to hell!" I'm even open to your theory that I'm talking
to a little part of my brain and that the "heavenly response"
is the release of neurotransmitters. No one can prove anything.
I'm PERSONALLY convinced that my belief in a higher power
has helped me put my life back together. But that's just for
Your website has
helped me learn about atheism---something about which I knew
shamefully little before. Actually, it's something I really
didn't think about. However, I find your view on morality
to be extremely practical. Even though you talk about laws,
I can't see you committing a serious crime like murder even
if you found a legal loophole. It seems that you care for
your fellow human being just for the sake of doing your own
part to create a better world, not because you anticipate
all these rewards after death. In that regard, I think atheism
is much more admirable than Christianity.
Not all Christians
are bad, just the ones who seem to make it onto your Hate
Mail page. I've met one or two that can have a respectful
dialogue about religion. I've done a little reading about
where many of the stories in the Bible come from, and it's
not surprising that there are many things that may have tainted
the original writings. The Bible has been translated from
its original form many, many times, and there are accounts
that much of it was politically charged, much like local newspapers
around election time. I won't get into too much of it, but
you get the idea.
Anyway, Bob, I
don't want to take up any more of your time. I'll admit that
I have a resentment toward Christianity, and I wanted to thank
you for providing an area where I could vent that a little
bit. I'm sure there's many of us who feel the same way.
fuken ediot wheres your respect disrespecting god like that
iT dosent matter cause you'll be punished anyway from god
for not having any respect and in your site it says god ate
my balls my question to you is WHAT BALLS YOU STUPID CUNT
IF YOUR GOING TO MAKE A SITE MAKE SURE ITS ONE WORTH LOOKING
AT YOU WASTED YOUR MONEY FOR NOTHING BUT THERES ONE THING
I REALLY LIKED ABOUT YOUR SITE AND THATS HOW WE COULD DRESS
YOU UP CAUSE
I DRESSED YOU UP LIKE A GIRL NOT THAT YOU NEEDED
ANY HELP IN THAT DEPARTMENT ANYWAY BY THE WAY GREEN DRESSES
SUIT YOU OH YEA AND THE GREEN HAT REALLY SHOWS YOUR COMPLEXION
is the most indescribable satisfaction that comes from having
something you've created getting used for the precise reason
it was intended.
see, when I first put Jesus Dress Up on the Internet, I received
several complaints from persons not unlike yourself. It soon
became clear to me that these people wanted more. They needed
something that I was yet to provide. What they needed... was
put me in a very difficult position. How could I make a "tool"
for exacting revenge upon myself? It had to be both painful
& humiliating, as well as accessible to the general public.
one day as I was fashioning Christ in a flowery yellow sun
dress and scuba mask, it struck me. The greatest way that
I could be befouled would be through a "Dress Up" style of
DHTML boutique! And the kick in the teeth would be that I'd
have to build it myself (similar to how Christ had to build
his own cross).
I started construction on the most hurtful/degrading Dress
Up site yet... only this time the victim would be me! It wasn't
easy. With each dreadful GIF that I illustrated came an avalanche
of shivers down my spine. At times my head would become filled
with horror as I imagined the multitude of dubious combinations
that were now possible. But still I pressed onward.
many long nights, unspeakable hallucinations and countless
drunken brawls, the page was finished. From a pile of savage
sewer rats to the baby bonnet and diaper, my chamber of tortures
was ready to come to life... on
the world wide web.
hesitate (only slightly) to say that this is the most heroic
act ever played out in full. But it is undoubtedly the greatest
human sacrifice ever performed. Oh, that and Christ's. Heh
heh, I always forget that one.
"i dont even know you and i hate
you already and remember first impressions last"
all you wrote back was a pack of bullshit first of all your
not god to say like god built his cross i built my site you
are nothing like god and will never be oh yea also you wasted

a disrespectful arsehole oh yea and if i was as ugly as you
i wouldnt put my picture on my site you'll scare the people
away i dont even know you and i hate you already and remember
first impressions last
Joanne, take a deep breath and hear me out. I've been on a
long search for someone like you. You see, I've had this "Normal
Bob Dress Up Revenge" page for nearly a year now
and I still haven't filled all of the empty space on it.
of the things that I've discovered about myself is that I'm
not very good at thinking up tortures to do to me.
Don't ask me why. I don't seem to have any problem thinking
up ways to bring myself pleasure, but the bad stuff... it's
like a total creative block! I can't figure it out! And now
I don't have to.
is where you come in.
need your suggestions. Go nuts! If you'd like to throw mud
on a new jacket that I just bought in the last few weeks,
OR if you wanted to shave off half my mustache (if I had a
mustache), OR step on my foot while I'm wearing sandals...
damn, I'm just no good at this. I'm sure it's clear now why
I'm asking for your assistance.
in it for you? I'll make it all come true... in a "Dress Me
Up" web page format! You'll be able to do all of the things
you people ache to do. No holds barred! All in the privacy
of your own home!
as giving as Christ? Who's eating their words now!?!
im here to prove a point"
of all u need help in the mental department im not here to
help you with your site you have got to be joking im here
to prove a point which is your not fuken normal do you think
revenge is the answer no im cATHOLIC therefore i respect my
religion in anyway and what your doing is absoloutely discusting
you really think this is a big game dont you well let me tell
you the game will soon be over ive taken alot of deep breaths
and anyone who disrespects god like that dosent deserve to
be heard out i have never known anyone who gets pleasure out
of torturing themselves but i know theres a name for it pshycho
and about the throwing mud on your jacket i'd love to do more
than that id like to cover you with shit usually i would think
this was being rude but i dont feel one bit of rudeness what
the fuk do you mean by not as giving as christ, christ is
very giving he gave us life he even gave up his own life for
us fair enough if you were not brought up to be catholic but
in order of respect you should respect other peoples religion
not make fun of them judge not less you be judged or you will
be judged according to the standards you yourself apply what
religion are you or are you even a religion i just want to
say that if you had any dignity or pride you will take that
dress up jesus thing off your site and anything else disrespectful
that ill hear you out im looking at your site in a week if
its still there you should be so ashamed of yourself one more
question HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING HOE RUDE AND IGNORANT
NOT TO M,ENTION DISRESPECTFUL DONT YOU FEEL GUILTY?
Joanne, how I laughed and laughed at your letter! Covering
me with shit is perfect! And asking how I sleep at night knowing
how rude, ignorant and disrespectful I am right after you
called me a cunt, said that you hate, referred to me as a
"fuken animal" and topped it off trumpeting your Catholicism!
I almost wet my pants!
your refusal to punctuate in combination with calling me an
"ediot"! Oh God, and your quote: "Judge not unless you be
judged", Christ! Now I'm running out of breath!
You're an absolute gem Joanne!
need to slow down and answer some of your rambling questions.
...OH! And the part where you say, "I don't even know you
and I hate you already... and remember, first impressions
last." I LOVE THAT QUOTE! Like I'm supposed to care what
your impression of me is. AND even if I were to try, I wouldn't
be able to change that impression. It's incredible! But I
have to get to your question... I'm just so hyped about your
letter! I'm blurry eyed!
Joanne, I am only rude to common simpletons who seem to enjoy
blabbering ignorance and ugliness. You, my dear, are a perfect
example of this. I don't care about what you think at all.
How could I? Everything that you say and believe makes no
sense. The use that I have found for people like yourself
is showcasing you. You're a prime example of what kind of
people are out there and the things that they believe. You
said in your final letter that you're here to prove a point.
Well, I'm here to help you do that.
am an atheist. I do not believe that there is a God, and I
certainly don't believe that He had a baby here on Earth that
we're now supposed to worship. So I sleep fine. And you, a
proud Catholic, running to your god's defense (very poorly
I might add), thinking that your foul-mouthed rantings are
going to sway my opinions. Joanne, you have most definitely
proved a point.
thank you so very very much.
