I was headed toward New Orleans this weekend to attend Southern Decadence â€” purely for journalistic reasons â€” but my plans got curtained because of the mandatory evacuation of the city due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Gustav.Â
But I received the following e-mail Saturday which sets me on edge a bit. It reads, in total: “RE: Southern Decadence.Â Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man sows, that he will reap, Mr. Jones.”Â
So I guess this guy’s saying Gustav was some kind of gay retribution? I don’t know for sure because the coward didn’t have the balls to sign his name or respond to my request. So I suggest we all send him our feelings of his intolerant biblical extremism. His (or her) address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m sure he’d love to be inundated with e-mails from gay people. Have at it.
