Christian Man Attacks Me Because I Ask Readers to Monetarily Support My Work

pile of money
Here’s a picture of all the money I have made off of this blog.

What follows is an email exchange I had with a self-proclaimed Christian man by the name of Frank. I usually don’t respond to the Franks of the world, but my mood being what it is (see below), I thought I would take a few moments and tell Frank what I thought of his email. Enjoy!

Email #1 From Frank

You have an unsubscribe but when I go there it says that is NOT an active web site. I bet if I offered to send money  it would be received!!!!!!!! The problem with your message is that bottom line is you are after FREE money!!!!! Get real!!!!!!

Email #1 From Bruce

Dear Frank,

I am so very berry hairy sorry that you are a technologically challenged buffoon and an asshole to boot. These diseases must be difficult for you to live with. I suggest you pray to your God and ask him to deliver you from your afflictions. Surely your God is able to help you not only unsubscribe from my mailing list, but also to become a decent human being. Are you offended by my response? I’m just following the Bible where it says to answer fools according to their folly.

Now, I must get back to counting all the money that has come in from kind, loving, supportive blog readers. A wealthy lot they are, providing me with enough ill-gotten gain for me to buy a brand spanking old 1985 Chevette. Woo Hoo! Ain’t Satan awesome!

Sarcastically yours,

Reverend Bruce Gerencser, thrice ordained, all praise be to Hymn

Email #2 From Frank

Thank you so much. The GOD I serve is a GREAT god. You can be a witness by your actions, and I don’t mean HAMMERING FOLKS with emails after they have asked you to kindly STOP!!!!!

P/S I am taking your word that you are stopping the emails.

Email #2 From Bruce

Dear Frank,

Your email was anything but fine. You might want to go back and read the nasty words you wrote about me asking — in a non-offensive, low key manner — people to consider supporting my work. I assume you attend a local blood cult church. Do they collect offerings? Do they ask members to support their work? These are rhetorical questions, by the way.

Your words were mean spirited, intentionally so. Your email is yet another reminder of why I am so glad to be free from Christianity.  All praise be to Zeus and Loki.

Your MailChimp profile says you are unsubscribed. I had nothing to do with it. You unsubscribed yourself, and when you tried to do it a second time it returned an error message.  You have NOT received numerous emails from me, and you most certainly did not ask me to stop emailing you (but I pinky swear to not email you again). You do know the difference between a mailing list and direct email, right? YOU voluntarily signed up for The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser email mailing list. This mailing list sends subscribers an email each day containing the posts I have written for that day. That goes out at 1:00 AM EST. At the bottom of each mailing list email is a clickable link for unsubscribing. Remember YOU signed up, so if you don’t want to receive the daily emails, all you have to do is click unsubscribe — which you did. You then decided to email me, and I responded. You then emailed me again, and this email serves as my response to you. As you can see Frank, you have received one mailing list email, and, once this is sent, two personal emails. I have not HAMMERED you with emails. Normally, I don’t respond to assholes like you, but today I am in a snarky, Godless, eating-fried-babies, Satanist mood.

Have a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day.

    Good on you Bruce.
    You don’t have to justify yourself before before these self righteous hypocriyical pricks, who can’t even practice an ounce of what the mythical Jesus taught.

    So if he is against you having your 1985 chevette subsidized by readers, that means he is against church buildings, pastors, their secretaries(and their secretary’s car), their gay trysts in hotel rooms, their private jets for jesus, their lamborghinis for the lord, and such being subsidized by congregants, right?

    Back in the olden days when I was a reporter, I worked for an editor who had a dream of getting the opportunity to write the “perfect” response to a nasty letter to the editor. It was: “Editor’s note: Fuck you very much.”

    This editor would heartily approve of your responses to Frank. As do I.

    Leave it to a Christian to completely distort the truth. And to berate people asking for donations that are going anywhere besides their churches and their favorite political candidates.

    I *knew* you were blogging so you could get rich!! I knew it!!!

    It’s the same reason I blog. But I don’t have the let’s-go-fry-a-cat atheist mindset, which is, I suppose, why I don’t have a Chevette.

      Donation information can be found at the bottom of many of the posts. Your donation is greatly appreciated.

      There was a time when I valued Jesus as more precious than all the wealth in the world — as my poverty in life clearly showed. No one ever doubted my love/devotion for God. But alas, I found out that Jesus/God was much like my dreams of having sex with Pamela Anderson — a delusional fantasy with no foundation in reality. Thus, neither Jesus/God or I value one another at all. How can we since one of us is a myth, a fantasy, much like Pamela Anderson in my dreams. It ain’t going to happen — not now, not ever. I do, however, have great want, need, desire for something tangible and of great value: camera equipment; equipment that has a creator and can be used by me to make my own creations.

      Thank you for wanting to help further my work. I look forward to receiving your donation.

    Really,why the hell should this Frank care at all about your Patreon account.?? Lots of blogs and reporters do have them, like Thom Hartmann’s blog. Big deal. These Fundie types so incredibly petty.
