radio station here in Wellington, New Zealand mentioned
your site - and I was online and took a look. Looking at your
site - it's no wonder why you get so much fan and hatemail.
I find your retorts not only razor-witted but incredibly intelligent.
Your grammar and wordmanship is truly fantastic. I am in awe.
you have a fantastic sense of humour, and it shines even more
in your replies to the Jesusfreaks who show just how simple
and narrow-minded they are. I'm not against religion nor am
I for it. It does, however annoy me immensely when I see Bible
Bashers in our city streets yelling their propaganda and I
think how funny it would be if someone would set up down the
street from the Jesusfreak and propagate the benefits for
turning away from religion. So in essence, your web site does
a pic of me and Jerry (met him in New Orleans 2am one Tuesday
morning), Jerry is cool and the Jesusfreaks hate him to. But
he is so good at "taking the piss*".
job! Thanks for fulfilling a dream. Your new fan
* Kiwi and Aussie slang for "making fun"
always told me not to discuss two things: politics and religion,
but your website does justice to many brave people who aren't
scared of denying the myth most of us grew up with: God. Sure,
the bible's a great novel, if you like fantasy/sci-fi shit,
but otherwise, it is utterly unbelievable and I refuse to
acknowledge such dung as the truth. I'm not atheist, because
I don't hate the idea of "God." I mean, come on, he's a good
ole' boy in a few ways, and a complete asshole most of the
time. My parents both believe, but don't know the degree to
which I *don't*...Awesome website. Hilarious and truthful.
Potent and passionate.
me see the light. I love the way you don't give a hoot about
people's bad comments or opinions damning your site and you
to the fiery pits of Hell.
is almost like a great big gay-pride parade. Seems like it
will never be accepted that some people (like you) are not
slaves to society. Isn't is cool--if there really is a Hell--that
every hot lesbian will be there to greet you, possibly nude?
Golly gee, I can't wait.
I think you should have a PriestDressUp game, or perhaps a
Mother Theresa Dress Up Game.
Hola, Senior Bob,
Who knew, the first time I found your little Jesus Dress Up
site, that here I'd be, months later, madly clicking my mouse
button first thing every morning, hoping every day to see
another hate mail page, more Special People, or even another
Super Chick. I was hopelessly hooked once I read "God Ate
My balls" Being an athiest almost to the point of anger, your
site reflects pretty much everything I believe, but am not
eloquent enuff to put into words.
So, as sort of
a slap in the face to religion, I went to the Universal Life
Church website, took a couple of minutes to fill out the form,
and 5 minutes later, I was a certified minister! You should
do it too Bob, if you haven't already.
I encourage EVERY
godless heathen to do the same. Here's the link: www.ulc.org
Oddly, you'd think my folks would be beaming with pride. What
proud, god-fearing mom & dad wouldn't be happy to see their
son become a man of the cloth?
But NOOOO.... MY
parents are appalled, call me a sham, say I'm mocking religion.
Some people have no sense of humor. Maybe if perform a gay
wedding, they'll accept me... Wanna
link me? I'd consider it an honor.
Hey bob, love the
site, you have brought much amusement to me during my sad
down time of poopyness here in chicagoland, which sucks donkey
balls lately I found much amusement in the hate letter contest....
so hey for the
revenge thingy you got making on why not have greek guys fuck
your ass or something all greasy and greek like? i dunno...
i gots to go now feed my salivacious puppy named annihilator...
but seriously great ite i dig it... and look forward to seeing
are some emails that included third party interaction.
recently took a vacation with my family and on the flight
home from New York, I ended up sitting next to a guy from
Guatamala. We started talking about music, politics, and eventually,
religion. He was talking about how low Americans hold religion
in comparison to Guatamalans, I agreed and cited NormalBobSmith.com...
he then started talking about how hillarious he thought your
hatemail and other features are! We talked for the remainder
of the flight about how awsome your page is! I just wanted
to tell you that you now officially have an international
up the awsome work,
This next letter started
as a fine piece of fan mail and ended in tragedy!
remember, no matter what people say, this site does, and will
always rule. Anyone who accepts a "god," as they call it,
had it forced on them as a child, making them a conformist
asshole. Now, who wants to be a conformist? Ask any of these
Christian goody-goodys if they think for themselves. Hell,
their brains will probably short-circuit with the introduction
of the concept.
one major flaw in their belief of "God": if "he looooves us
soooo much," then why did he create the Black Death (and other
such diseases)? Now that I think about it, why did he create
disease at all?
"loving god." That's like having a parent that beats the shit
out of you every night without fail, and then you turning
around and saying that the parent is so great, and he/she
loves you soooo much. It just doesn't work, plain and simple.
another thing, maintenance. For example: let's say you bought
a $350,000 car. With that kind of an object, you've got to
tune the carburetor, put gas in it; hell, if you don't drive
it, you've got to at least wipe the damned thing off every
once in a while! Has "God" wiped us down with his cosmic rag
yet? Hell no, he hasn't. Shows how much he cares.
you Christian pussies, if you don't like this website, DON'T
ACCESS THE DAMN THING! It's not that hard! It's called LOGIC,
people. Oh, wait, I forgot... Christians don't know what that
is. Well, in that case, go ahead, come on to the site. There's
nothing funnier than seeing a Christian yell at people about
something that doesn't exist (and they know it, too). To all
the people that try to use the Bible as their source of justification,
it's called EVIDENCE. Now, let's all say it together now...
United States' entire society relies on this thing called
evidence. It means you need to have proof of what you claim
for it to have any value. So it says that "God" just pointed
his finger, and poof, and created the world in six days. Can
you prove it? No? Then shut the hell up! Okay, so let's pretend
that what the bible says IS true. If I write the words "I
am God" in it, why is that NOT true? Can you prove it? If
you can, bring it on. I'd be glad to shoot you down.
If you want to try to justify any Christian beliefs, I'd be
glad to ignore them. You can send them to email@example.com
where they have a chance (albeit a slim one) of being read.
And yes, I know the address I sent this email in with is different,
but my AOL will be offline until the day after tomorrow. After
all, it's AOL...
Bob, if there is a such thing as hell, I'll help you take
it over when I get there.
reply that I sent unfortunatly was directed to the wrong address.
is there a picture of yourself or something that I can put with
your email on my pages? Your letter is cool and I'd like to put
it up (include your email address?).
is no longer at this e-mail address. Do not send any further
communications to the address under any circumstances. Delete
the address from your records.
sorry Adam. My bad.
are some incidences of fans turning on fans.
Recently I posted a series of letters from various
gay fans. One of the letters prompted another third party intervention.
friend sent me the link to your web site. He is straight and
I am gay but we are both non-theists. I was reading some of
the hate mail that you've received and it sounds very familiar
to me. To you it may be sport to make fun of these ignorant
zealots, but to me, their hate is very serious. They consider
me an emissary of satan because I am gay. But you know what,
I have never met a satan worshipping gay guy. Isn't satanism
just an extreme sect of christianity? I follow an eastern
philosophy of Taoism. Anyways, back to the point I was trying
to make: Militant fundamentalism is on the rise in this country.
All religious fundamentalism is inherently intolerant and
cannot accept diversity. It has to destroy what it cannot
convert. Take it from me a gay guy, these people are very
dangerous and powerful. Look at how they have treated my community.
I don't really know what to say to you about them. All I know
is they are sooooo fucking powerful. I don't mean the morons
who write to you but the ones who control them. You are in
my thoughts. I know that you are sick of their crap too...
This is a response to Steven Luther's letter. It's long, but I HAD
to write it! You probably won't agree with my opinions, but whatever.
Steven, I have to object.
itıs foolish to assume that zealots who oppose homosexuality
are ignorant. I personally am sick of hearing about intolerance
or personal values being products of ignorance. This is underestimation
of the intellects of people -- realize that there are throngs
of intelligent, introspective people who have come to their
conclusions after much research and thought. Not everyone
who opposes your mode of life hates you or has been brainwashed
into thinking youıre a Satanist. Christiansı opinions may
not be right in your eyes, just as your opinions may not be
right in theirs.
hate the opinion that anyone who isnıt all-accepting is dumb,
and anyone who is ultra-liberal is smart. There are plenty
of witless religious extremists who walk alongside brilliant
counterparts; likewise, there are smart and dumb so-called
have a question for you: plenty of non-religious people hate
gays. (Itıs true!) How do you explain their intolerance, if
it isnıt a product of brainwashing or religious zeal (or repressed
homosexuality, another favorite argument)?
fundamentalism is on the rise in this country? What parallel
universe do you live in? If fundamentalism were on the rise,
women wouldnıt be hitting the workforce in droves, bigotry
would be resulting in everyday lynching (it is true that we
hear of race- or orientation-based hate crimes, but the occurrences
are few and far between and virtually non-existent in comparison
to the number of injuries and deaths caused by spousal abuse
or other crimes we never hear about), and people would be
banished for their heresy. No. In our age of public-interest
groups and political-action committees, we are force-fed skewed
data, guilt-based persuasion (save the fuckinı rainforest
for your childrenıs children!), and blatant propaganda.
donıt think or research for themselves, and they buy into
the hype their friends spout (for example, Taoismıs cool!),
living their lives assuming broad generalities about different
classifications of people. So, instead of militant fundamentalism,
I believe we are becoming more and more blindly liberal.
thing: you talk about how zealots treat YOUR community. Itıs
everyoneıs community. Not yours, not mine. Ours. I dislike
the double-standard to which you so vaguely allude with your
phrase "MY community." Whether itıs a racial sector, or a
group with common sexuality, or a sex, everyone wants it two
ways: they want to be able to give the old why-canıt-we-all-unite
plea while maintaining an exclusive relationship to their
"community." Example? Iıve always thought the solution to
racism is to encourage interracial relations.... not so easy
when the"it's-a-black/Latin/fill-in-the-blank-thing" attitude
still exists. Another?
advocates want homosexuality to be accepted but don't want
to have to accept the validity of others' views. Another?
Women supposedly want equality yet run to the government for
special gender-based grants. Everyone wants minority status
because it's sensational to be the underdog.
for the all-encompassing "power" of the people who control
these "morons," I think you're paranoid. To my knowledge,
there is no underground plan to eradicate gays (or even just
to "brainwash" them) from, the universe. If anyone has information
to the contrary, I'd like to know.
me an optimist, but I still believe in the general goodness
of mankind. All I can suggest for all people -- gay, straight,
bi-, into dogs, whatever -- is to represent your SELF the
best you can. If you truly care about encouraging positive
relations among all types of people, don't give anyone any
reasons to make sweeping generalities about you or any group
that shares some facet of your identity.
think this is where I make my disclaimer so my words are at
least considered: I am agnostic, anti-religion, conservative.
But I couldn't care less about how someone lives his own life
(including being homosexual). I believe everyone should live
how they please, and no repercussions should be applicable
unless someone else's rights are infringed. However, my personal
credo is "Boo fuckin' hoo!" Be an adult. Deal with it. If
someone doesn't like you because you're gay, who cares? Move
on. Guess what? Never, ever, will everyone like or be liked
by everyone. Never, ever, will everyone accept the practices
or values of everyone. Don't accept a hypothesis of universal
harmony, because it's not going to happen.
me finish by saying: Go, America! Have gay sex! Marry your
racial opposite! Do drugs! Go to church! Do whatever the fuck
you like. Just be decent.
Oh yeah, and then I got
