It’s been a while since we shared some of the hate mail the Texas Freedom Network gets from folks. Enjoy!

Lots of our hate mail is along these lines:

“Dear Nut Jobs — Leave me alone! You IDIOTS!”

And another:

“Wise up! You can not be a liberal & please God. Get on God’s side not evil Obama”

Some folks like to declare their political beliefs and support for particular political candidates:

“There is NO separation of church and state! Amen. No Bamacare. No Amnesty. Cruz for Prez”

This helpful fellow put the important words in all caps and wanted to make sure we understand about the perish=hell thing.

“REPENT!!! Turn to the Lord JESUS CHRIST and be baptized. 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!!!)”

Morality is a recurring theme in our hate mail:

“What is right or wrong has been established by history. So is good & bad. You are pushing an… Read More

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:

Dear Kathy:

#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… Read More

A new Christian-themed specialty license plate, approved by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles board last December, went on sale this week. Here’s what we told Fox News about our concerns:

“I think you want to be very careful when you give government the authority to favor a particular religion in an official way such as this,” Dan Quinn, communications director for the Texas Freedom Network, told FoxNews.com.

“That’s what bumper stickers are for,” Quinn said of religious decorations on vehicles. “We support religious freedom for everybody. The question is: Do you need government approval for that? We don’t want government having that authority.”

The group had previously blasted the plate as “disrespectful,” saying in a December press release on its website that “It’s become pretty clear that our governor [Rick Perry] is dismissive of religious beliefs other than his own, and now his governmental appointees have voted to send a message that Texas is unwelcoming to the religious faiths of some of its citizens.”

Our hate mail typically spikes when we’re quoted by Fox. (Go figure.) In any case, the writer of the following email apparently checked out our website, including the section on our… Read More

The Texas Freedom Network's efforts to keep politics out of social studies classrooms this year has attracted the usual batch of right-wing hate mail. We also heard from folks who didn't like our opposition to a State Board of Education resolution attacking Islam and falsely claiming that social studies textbooks are anti-Christian and pro-Muslim. Let's take a look at some of the mail: "It's time for you left wing nuts to get out of public schools and open your own private schools, like the Catholics and Lutherans did decades ago.  That way you can indoctrinate your offspring in your silly religion and leave the rest of us alone."
