O, they will know we are Christians... our anonymous, virulent misogyny and obsession with rape.

I've written before about Jessica Ahlquist, the Rhode Island teenager who asked to have a prayer banner taken down from a wall in her public school and became a pariah after winning her case in court. That was back in January, but the Christian community hasn't stopped expressing its special kind of love toward her.

If that's too small for you to read, here's the text of the letter Ahlquist received in the mail recently:
The cops will not watch you forever. We will get you good. Tell your little asshole sister to watch her back. There are many of us, “crusaders,” we have a betting pool to see who gets you first! Your fuckin old man better move or keep you locked up if you know what’s good for you. We know where he works, what kind of cars you have and the plate numbers of the cars. Get the fuck out of RI you bitchin whore. You are nothing more of a sex toy of a slut. Maybe you will (sic) gang-banged before we throw you out of one of our cars. We will get you – look out!
Can't you just feel the love and forgiveness? The cheek-turning is just palpable. Nice, friendly folks up there in Rhode Island -- the kind who would ostracize and terrorize a 16-year-old girl for asking for equal standing under the law of the land.

Remember, folks: Religion is a force for good. Non-believers should work with the religious community and emulate them. It's those shrill, militant secularists who are the problem.
