For your reading enjoyment, we have culled some of the hate mail we get at FFRF. These come to you as written, unedited.

Rising Sun High School: I just wanted to contact you and make my intentions known. I see you are threating Rising Sun High School due to a play called The Children of Eden. I am currently looking into options on how we can address this. If you force the school to cancel this production done by CHILDREN, I will look into a counter suit against you to reimburse the school for money spent on this production including staff wages and time spent by the children. Also reimbursement to all the ticket holders who have prepurchased tickets for this three day showing. I am sure in this conservative county many would be interested in getting on board with this. Your message is one of hypocrisy and it is time organizations like yours are sh own for what they are. I will make it my mission. You don't want religious views forced down your throat, yet you force your anti religious views done the throat of others. Enough is enough. — Jason Howell

Your self-righteous BS: Considering that none of you can PROVE there is no "God" and that it is nearly universal that ALL human groups tend to adopt the concept of a "higher" being, you folks have NOT SCIENTIFIC BASIS for your position — in fact your argument is more of a religion than any intellectual process! You guys are just a bunch of FAKES who have not true logical basis for what you claim to be "TRUTH" and "FACT". In face, your speech is no more fact based than that of the religions you attack. — David Gillis

leave Christians alone: Tired of your organaztion "BULLYING" people into taking down crosses or face a lawsuit. The separation of church & state was to keep church from interfering with state and state from interfering with church. It doesn't give you guys the right to SHIT on everyone's religious beliefs. If I want to put a cross up in a public park, I will. Stop treading on us or you'll find yourself in the middle of a huge class lawsuit. — Dan Sanders

FFR: Your group is just as disgusting, hateful, loathsome and repulsive as the liberals who have ruined the Dumocrat Party. You are also as low as they are and that is so low they can't even pipe sunlight to you. Your who premise is based on an INCORRECT ruling by a liberal judge, who based his decision on his ideology rather than the Constitution. You are so ignorant and stupid that you haven't even read the Constitution so you could see the true intent that the Founding Fathers meant by what they wrote in the Constitution. — Wally Moses

Crosses Orange County Courthouse: Do you people have anything better to do than stick your noses into other peoples business that doesn't even concern you? You're not even in Texas & not anywhere close & yet you stick your nose into something that doesn't concern you & you're stirring up trouble. Why not mind your own business. The Crosses at the Orange County Courthouse are not bothering anyone & have been there for years. That's whats wrong with this country. It's people like YOU taking God out of things. This country needs help & i'm glad Donald Trump is doing stuff to bring back America & The United States in the Right direction. I can tell you now those Crosses won't be taken down. Stay out of Texas & leave Orange County alone. Just like the Cross in Port Neches Park you so Desperately tried to get taken down. Yeah right. If you don't like Crosses then close your eyes!! — Linda Nunez

Cosntitution: YOUR ORGANIZATION IS DESPICABLE, BUT I AM SURE YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT. WELL CHANGE IS COMING WHEN WE PUT 2 CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS ON THE SUPREME COURT. WE WILL OVERTURN ROE V WADE AND SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. IN THE FUTURE OUR CHILDREN WILL PRAY IN SCHOOLS AND CROSSES WILL BE EVERYWHERE IN SCHOOLS AND ALL GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS IN JESUS NAME AMEN — Kenneth Stewart

Leave us alone: Please leave people that want ti pray alone y'all just give it a rest yiur pokimg your nose inti things thats best left alone if people want ti pray let them it dont matter where they are or when just let them do it im a nonpracticing jew and if i should chosse ti pray i will and dint care where i am at. — Ed Silverman

Taos New Mexico: This Foundation is by far the corniest and most useless foundation in the world. You have absolutely no right to try to change traditions that are deep within the New Mexico culture. If you feel offended than please stay out of my town and don't ever come back. The entire town of Taos New Mexico is against this silly request to take down the cross in Taos Plaza. The world and all of its long lasting Traditions does not have to cater to your so-called Foundation! If your foundation never shows its face in Taos New Mexico again.... good riddance! — Marcos Herrera

ISLAM in the public schools!: You are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites! All your lawsuits against Christianity, but what do you do now that the teaching of the Islamic religion has invaded the public schools and under Obama has evolved into actually indoctrinating the children into the faith?! Probably to scared to bring lawsuits against that! NO, your only concern is to destroy the actual Christian history of the United States from being learned by the children! Pathetic organization! — Ann Warwick

Prophecies!: Forget everything about what the Bible says except all the prophecies. You can't deny prophecy because by its very definition is "history told before it happens." The Bible has literally hundreds of prophecies both in the OT and NT. To date, the accuracy of these prophecies is 100%. This cannot be denied or overlooked. The prophecies alone about Jesus and his birth, Life, death and resurrection total approximately 300 prophecies. Do you know what the odds are of even a few of these coming to pass are? The prophecies alone land to be incredible way in which this amazing book was written over the centuries. If you can dispute these then I will become an atheist! Give it your best shot! — Norman Saib
