FAO: President Robert H. Bruininks

Dear Sir,

I am writing this note in support of PZ Myers, in particular regarding the hate campaign that Bill Donohue is trying to whip up against him.

You will by now, no doubt, be aware of the difference between the methods of the "tolerant, loving, forgiving" Christians (and their associated death threats), and the methods of the "godless, heathen, bound-for-hell" atheists, so I don't think I need to elaborate.

Although not a regular reader of his weblog, I fully support his campaign to expose the irrationality of many, if not all, religions. The reaction of the Catholics (and other Christian sects) to his "cracker" story simply reinforces his and my belief that their only remaining weapon these days is hate - which surely should sit uncomfortably with their alleged beliefs.

Bill Donohue, of course, has made a career out of persecuting those who, allegedly, insult his faith. A noted racist, avowedly anti-Semitic, who has defended the numerous convictions of Catholic priests for sexual abuse of minors, Donohue clearly sees his position as equivalent to a modern day "Witchfinder-General".

Please treat his campaign with the contempt it so clearly deserves.
