Christians Should be "Tortured" and "Prosecuted" for their Faith, and for Good Measure, "Fed to the Lions"

Periodically American Vision gets some interesting correspondence from people who don't like what we do. Most of the really bad stuff comes in the form of anonymous emails.

The Crazies Have Spawned

But there are always people out there who are downright nasty in the way they express their opinions about my opinions. You're bound to upset people when you write on controversial topics, but some of the emails I get are over the top. Here's one example by a guy who calls himself "Grimly Fiendish":
