Catastrophic Cracker Kerfuffle!

According to The Skeptics' Guide Rogues, the aforementioned Cracker Wars have officially upgraded to a Cracker Kerfuffle!

What a great word.

The specifics of some of the death threats being sent have come to light and they're just too amusing to not share.

This email was sent to PZ Myers, among many others, and PZ followed his policy regarding letters that threaten violence. Specifically, he posts them with all the identifying information attached. He even has a little item on his front page announcing this.

I do my best to avoid swearing here, but I won't censor anyone else's choice of language. All errors are the author's:

Subject: your short life


what I would like to know is how did you even
get a job at a collage.

when you are obviously a moron.
How would you feel if nice folks starting ranting against
Fags, and atheist like yourself.

well sir, you don't get to blaspheme and walk away from this.
You have two choices my fucked up friend, first you can quit your job for the good of the
children. Or you can get your brains beat in.

I give you till the first of the month, get that resignation in cunt

What's interesting about this email is that it came from an address at 1800flowers.com. As it turns out, 1800flowers doesn't appreciate people sending threats from their computers. The owner of the email address was fired.

Unfortunately, the lady who owned the email address is not the psychopath threatening violence over a glorified saltine. No, she's just married to him.

For how much longer remains to be seen.

... I wish I had a job at a collage. It sounds colorful.

God Loves You! He sent His Son to die for your sins, and mine too!

Hope you wake up and smell the coffee before die, and go straight to Hell. Sorry, Darwin & Dawkins will not provide the "nothingness" you think you will get at death.

Praying for you Atheists! :)
HAVE A NICE DAY !!! hbks1.blogspot

BTW, you might want to get a hair cut. You look like a girl. Just a suggestion. Ciao!

Chicomecoatl Loves You! She accepted the sacrifice of a young decapitated girl in September to provide you with food, produce, and fertility, and me too!

Hope you wake up and smell the pulque before you die and must face the wrath of Tezcatlipoca. Sorry, Darwin and Dawkins will not provide you with enough Mezcal to satisfy the rapacious drinking hunger of Macuil-Tochtli when you face your final justice!

I'm offering up the sacrifice of human hearts stretched across the stone altar of Huitzilopochtli for you atheists and monotheists. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

BTW, you might want to get a hair cut. You look like a cortezian and might be mistaken for a blue-eyed, white-skinned god from across the seas and/or a Quetzalcoatl. Just a suggestion. Cualli ca quin occepa!

Funny you mention it, I'm already planning to get it all cut off this Sunday!

Thanks for the kind words, see you in the nothingness!
