It is not a suprise that you decided to make our conversations public. You are trying to use a bully pulpit, trying to intimidate anyone who disagrees with your agenda of gay marriage. This tactic is being used over and over again lately, the Miss USA pagent [sic] being the most public. Unfortunately for you, we are not afraid. Write whatever you want, I'll never look at your pathetic, anger filled website again. Goodbye.

Oh, we're not finished?
Mr. Coyote, I feel our relationship has reached an impasse. No, you big hunk of man-steak. No, I shan't marry you.
Listen, if you scroll back through our correspondence, you will find that my first response to you was cordial and polite. I simply stated that I disagree with you. You are the one using hateful rhetoric and potty talk.
See, Mr. Coyote, exposing bigotry is not a bully tactic. I believe it's called a defense strategy. And minorities (sexual or otherwise) have never been the intimidators. Name one person who has been bashed or murdered for being anti-gay. I can give you a list as long as your arm of folks who've been murdered or beaten for being who they are. We are being beheaded in Saudi Arabia. Hanged in Iran. Hunted down like dogs on the streets of "liberated" Baghdad. Beaten to death in Jamaica. Bludgeoned and lashed to fences on the outskirts of Laramie. And people like you and the Schowengerdts are fueling the hatred. Anger? Yes. There's anger on my website. Righteous anger, which I hope, through osmosis, invades your dreams.
Miss USA? Really? Miss Prejean, who spoke of her moral upbringing as crotch tape was holding her bikini in place (and who, as it turns out, did a lil' topless modeling) dug her own grave. The fact is the tide is turning, and homophobia just isn't okay anymore. Game over.
Finally, you are welcome on my blog at any time. Leave comments and I will publish them (but I'll bleep your language, mr. morality). But engage me in a battle of wits and I'm going to bring my full game.
And I believe I've won this round.
Maybe that'll shut him up. Part of us hopes not.
