Judge Crabb’s hate mail on National Day of Prayer

Sometimes the ignorance of the American public actually takes me by surprise…

[Originally posted at: thedailypage.com]

With the National Day of Prayer upon us, I went over to Judge Barbara Crabb’s office to look at the mail she’s received since she declared this day unconstitutional.

Last month, she ruled that “the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience…. The government may not use its authority to try to influence an individual’s decision whether and when to pray.”

Judge Crabb got much more mail than usual, says Susan Vogel, secretary to Judge Crabb.

At the clerk’s office, I was handed a file containing the correspondence. I counted 61 letters and e-mails, and 55 were negative.

Some were very negative.

“Judge Crabb needs to be removed from her position,” wrote Bob Ferguson by e-mail. “She is a stupid bitch.”

Al Kafer of Cleveland, who described himself as a “70-year-old Vietnam vet,” addressed her as “Babs” and wrote: “We could give a damn what some INTELLECTUAL PYGMY in a skirt in cheeseland says.” And he added a P.S.: “We are no longer taking your shit anymore.”

“You mam [sic] are a disgrace to America,” wrote Michael Yeager. “Only an Anti-Christ individual would deny a national day of prayer. . . . Basically, you have committed treason against God who established our nation.”
