Fun with Hate Mail–I received this joyful missive today. It was posted by anonymous.

I live next door to these so called polygamous people that you seem to enjoy insulting so much. The only people you are fooling are the ignorant. I have a tremendous respect for these women, and I think you should think twice before making blatant accusations. If anyone lives in fear, these people do. They deal everyday with the repurcussions of ignorant bigots who suck up every mistruth you feed them in websites like this one. These people don’t stay out of fear, but out of love, something you obviously don’t understand.

Dear Anonymous,

How lovely you would write, and how totally apropos that you would choose the “anonymous” blogger comment that Blogger.com avails you. So you are hanging out with the pligs, huh? What fun. They’re a raucous and joyful crew. However, I don’t remember doing a whole lot of insulting. Just exactly what is it you are referring to? Please write back soon. I’m really, really curious.

If the GROWN MEN who are marrying children live in fear, thank God for that! Perhaps something is finally right with the world, and the Utah authorities will pull their heads out of the place where the sun-don’t-shine and start prosecuting their criminal activity.

See, anon, it’s all about how many wives you can get. They are like those prize tickets you win at carnivals. The more wives you have, the bigger your prize in Heaven. The more prize tickets you win, the bigger your prize at the carnival prize redemption window.

And this, my dear anon, makes these women nothing but a commodity. They are chattel. They are property.

Apparently, you think that’s how it should be. Not strongly and fervently enough, however, to sign your post. Perhaps you DO realize there is something very, very wrong here. Oh and anon? I’ve talked to enough former polygamist wives to know it has NOTHING to do with love.
