“Irrelevant Idiots”

I find it amusing that the support emails are called testimonials and the mail of people that do not agree with you is called hate mail..

The fact that you call yourself  military religious freedom is another amusing fact.

Better to call yourself irrelevant idiots.

Hi (name withheld),

Always happy to provide amusement.

If you had read some of the mail we receive it would be interesting to know how you would characterize it.

Just a question, if I may. If someone you didn’t know wrote you because of something you said or did and called you an “irrelevant idiot,” what category would it fall into for you? “Dislike mail,” perhaps?

When we receive grateful messages of thanks from those on whose behalf we have taken up the cudgel  against people who are sometimes simply thoughtless and sometimes just ignorant of the laws and regulations they are violating, the words are certainly appreciated. Sometimes we actually get letters meant to be used as testimonials because their authors had suffered at the hands of bigots, fools and zealots convinced anyone who didn’t subscribe to their particular version of correct belief was doomed to hell and needed to suffer every consequence the perpetrator could conjure up in the meantime.

Messages I see from people who don’t agree with us or our efforts are, if they are presented rationally or raise what appear to be legitimate questions, responded to appropriately.

Anyway, that’s the way it looks from the ranks of those working to protect the freedom of belief of the women and men in the military. The fact that you find something about us amusing doesn’t tell me much, but I will confess it makes you sound just a bit sanctimonious.
