GR Press Phone Message

Last week someone wrote a nasty letter to the editor about a friend from church. It’s a long story, but what it boils down to is that a group of people in Grand Rapids are poised and ready to write mean-spirited letters to the editor of the GR Press any time they read key words such as “evolution,” “homosexuality,” or “President Obama.” But I guess they’re not the only ones who feel they are saving society one letter at a time–I was lured into the fray and wrote what I believe to be a beacon of reason in a turbulent sea of idiocy.

I was pleasantly surprised that one of these folks actually left a phone message for me at the church letting me know just how misguided my letter to the editor was. Really, it ranks up there with being lumped in with Robert Webber and the Antichrist by Jimmy Swaggart’s wife, Frances

In any case, I decided that this little aural work of art needed a frame, so I created a bed of music to accompany her message. Of course, I’ve edited out some of the details like the caller’s name and phone number, but you’ll get a pretty good idea of her rhetoric by listening to this MP3. It will also give you an opportunity to dance.

    This was so fun to listen to!

    Oh, BTW, the link doesn’t work.

    Sounds like someone is kind of bitter. Sounds like someone might feel pierced by whatever the caller may have said. I don’t know.

    Many years ago you told me that you are something of a reactionary – when you are in a conservative environment, you rebel and become more liberal. When you are in a liberal environment, you rebel and become more conservative.

    Sounds like it is time for someone to move to Massachusetts or California.
