I get a lot of hate mail. Readers may be illuminated by a sample of what my interlocutors have to say about me-and occasionally-my ideas. I’ve always found that how a person behaves when their ideas are challenged says a lot about their ideology as well as their character.
So why post so much…hate?
I post the best of the hatemail for several reasons, first, it’s entertainment.
Secondly, it serves as a benchmark of sorts; whenever I am wondering if *I* am the crazy one, I re-read them for reference.
Finally, it’s an act of charity, a sort of prod to repentance and conversion for the guilty parties. I hope that when the offenders see their words posted in public for all to see that their humiliation will move them to contrition and repentance.
