My reply to my brothers hate mail [View all]

I get home from working a Candidate Forum last night and checked my email. Besides the seemingly hundreds of messages from candidates surrogates asking for money, I saw a few from family and friends. The first one I open in from my brother, it was obviously some chain bullshit he just passed on and since he got it from someone he believed it.

I could tell quickly that it was a hate piece, it started out about this being a christian nation and then went on with pictures and descriptions of people praying on their mats (sorry, not sure what they are called) in the streets of New York. It said they were Muslims and called this activity horrifying and how you couldn't say prayers at this event or that one but these people could do this. It was a very long piece which once I hit the reply, I deleted.

My reply was:
"It's called freedom of religion, not just my religion. You can pray in the street too if you really want to, there is nothing stopping you, but you might want to start by going to church first."


He has not been inside a church for 20+ years except for my mothers funeral. Oh and I replied to all, that really pisses him off.
