I got my first piece of hate mail regarding my writing today. I can honestly call it hate mail, because the guy spewed venom about me, my Christianity, and my writing...
I'm okay with it. I thought I would be distraught the first time someone told me my writing was "child abuse," but I'm truthfully okay with it.
I think that I am okay with it, because he was obviously coming from a VERY biased position.
Want to read it? It's actually kind of funny, now that I am no longer saddened by his blatant misunderstanding of who I am as a person.
Excerpts from my first hate mail:
"But - like every other religionist - you are not listening to what other people are saying and are too busy spreading your ridiculous hate filled garbage message.
And while we are on the subject of QUALITY - badly formatted bullshit written to sell children books that rot their brains by teaching them that they are worthless sinners at birth but that is OK because god loves them - well - if they accept Jeebus that is - is nothing like my idea of quality. One less religionist on the site selling un-necessary salvation to innocent children would not be a bad thing as far as I am concerned."
Funny, right? I currently have 20 articles on HubPages. The sheer fact that he choose one of them and concluded that I am a "religionist...spreading hate-filled garbage..." shows me that he is no less judgmental and oppressive than the "religionists" he hates so much.
What a great day!
