Hate Mail--Whoo Hoo!

Last week a reporter for a local community paper called for my reaction to the California Supreme Court's Gay Marriage decision. Specifically, they wanted to know what my congregation would be doing, if anything, to acknowledge the decision. I responded that we would be praying for gay couples, that God would guide them as they decided whether or not to make a comittment to marriage. This was quoted in an article on "Pastors' Responses to Gay Marriage Decision".

Today I got a lovely, unsigned letter describing in detail the torments of hell I will soon be enjoying, complete with fire and flesh eating worms as punishment for my perverted teaching. The writer then assured me that s/he is praying for my salvation.

Yup. Really convinces me of the my error.

Not.

My favorite is the unsigned letter. Apparently they're under the impression that they are speaking the truth of God's word and yet are perfectly willing to attach God's name to it, but not their own. I think your response to the reporter was a good one and one that is shared by our community.

Yeah, I believe there is a level of hell, 7th or 8th maybe, just for those who speak for God without signing their name......

It's not the 9th level I know, because they've already lost their balls.

I once got a hate letter by email---from someone who said, "I'm not signing this because you'll just take it out on me."

Um, dude. your name is on your email account.
