The following email, with the above subject header, was received from firstname.lastname@example.org this morning at Orthodoxy in Dialogue’s email account. This is typical of the dozens and dozens of messages tweeted to our Twitter account and editor Giacomo Sanfilippo’s personal Twitter account since we reported on the Trenham v. Sanfilippo lawsuit. This kind of messaging is directed not only at Mr. Sanfilippo personally, but at every LGBTQ Orthodox Christian, seeker, and inquirer. One wonders if this is the only kind of spirituality Mr. Trenham is capable of inspiring in his followers and supporters.
Hey faggot you’re a an absolute loser and you’re going to burn in hell for being a sodomite. You’re not an Orthodox Christian, you can’t be gay and orthodox Christian, you absolute fool. God willing you’re going to get sued until you are bankrupt. People join the Orthodox Church specifically because it doesn’t support sodomites and child rapists with AIDS like you and your fag friends. Fucking loser. Go fuck yourself you fucking fudge packer, have fun in hell for being a fag.
