Dispatches from the Creation Wars

The Brad Blog has a couple of nasty emails sent to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation in the wake of the controversy over Bible verses on military scopes. The emails were given to him by Frank Schaeffer, son of religious right patriarch Francis Schaeffer. Here’s the first one:

You really love to see your name in print, don’t you? In the name of God, get OVER yourself! This is the most caterwauling godless jews and pedophile mohammedans have done since the Knights Templar retook Jerusalem. You’re pathetic scum. Go circumcise your neck. Oh, and would that wall be the one that the Zionist jews built in Jordon?

Drop dead,

And the second, which includes a clearly implied threat:

I am amazed with the zealotry with which you attack this poor group of old veterans. I am not amazed, though, that you are a jew.

You do not fool me, I’ve done my research on you and your “organization”. You are no better than the ACLU and are just one small part of the effort of those that would destroy this great nation from within.

I will see you in the streets.

They get emails like this several times a day at MRFF.
