I never had any formal plans to address the death threats I receive on a daily basis from anonymous commenters and emailers, but the cowardly, craven, gutless, fucktards have finally hit me on a bad day.
Normally I just assume that random death threats from impotent losers living in their parents basements just means that I'm doing my job. I'm an atheist blogger. I get it. I write about something many, many people find deeply distasteful. Receiving violent, hateful email from pathetic cowards who lack the intellectual or moral integrity to actually engage other human beings goes with the territory.
But I just have to ask - Why so angry?
I have received 11 death threats today. What terrible, controversial, existence threatening post did I write?
I asked for advice from atheists on how to deal respectfully with religious family members due to the fact that my grandmother died today.
Clearly that represents a grave existential threat that requires my immediate neutralization.
Seriously anonymous religionist douchebags, why so angry? What the fuck is wrong with you? I'm really curious. Because something inside your shallow, uncomprehending, feeble little mind, is well and truly broken. What is it that has gone so horribly wrong in your life that you would spend your time on this useless and wholly pointless drivel? How pathetic and pointless is your life that you would waste even a second sending anonymous threats to people you don't even know? You have to understand that your threats are meaningless.
Moreover, are you truly so incapable of defending your Faith that the only means you can think of to legitimize your belief is by silencing your opposition? Is your belief truly so weak and shallow that anyone with the temerity to voice a contrary opinion is worth of death? That is ignorance, tyranny and stupidity all rolled into one. It's pathetic.
And so I ask, why so angry? What has made life so miserable that you would spend a moment on such a fruitless activity? What has made life so meaningless that this is how you choose to spend your time?
In parting anonymous religionist douchebag, if your life is so shitty, small, pathetic and pointless that sending me death threats somehow makes you feel better, I suggest you start spamming your God, because He's the one supposedly in charge, which means He's the one who has made your life the trainwreck that it is - not me.
