American Family Association's Newest Christmas Item - Burning Crosses
This is a copy of the letter I fired off to the American Family Association when I discovered this monstrosity. Feel free to send them your own comments. It's the 21st Century. Why is this even legal?
Excuse me, I don't mean to sound crass, but are you fucking insane?! Have you lost your minds? Are you really selling burning crosses?!
I can't fucking believe this. Please tell me some KKK member hacked into your website and planted that. You can't possibly be fucking stupid enough to pass something like that along as a legitimate product. And now, of all times, when we have elected our nation's first African-American President?! Is this some kind of statement?! Are you trying to send some sort of message?!
I should probably explain, at this point, that I am not the kind to write furiously angry letters that are peppered with swear words. This should probably demonstrate how stunned and shocked beyond belief I am. How could any reasonable person respond in this day and age?
Again, I must very politely ask you, in the name of all that is holy and decent: have you lost your fucking minds?! Who the hell is in charge of this operation?! Who the bloody hell is responsible?!
