I got this in my email from my mother to the immediate family, your standard loving motherspam as it were, without the link or mention of where it was from. If you’re familiar with World Net Daily I need explain no more (they’re hideously anti-gay). If not, here’s a taste (just a taste)

Made in the USA: Spoiled brats
Craig R. Smith
The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine and came across some poll data I found rather hard to believe.
The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed and 69 percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the president. In essence 2/3s of the citizenry just ain't happy and want a change.
Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter? Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job? Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?
Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter? I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough.This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods where 90 percent of teenagers own cell phones and computers.
How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world?
I know, I know. What about the president who took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The president who has a measly 31 percent approval rating? Is this the same president who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11? The president that cut taxes to bring an economy out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled brats safe from terrorist attacks?
Say what you want but I blame it on the media.
And yes, that would be the same president who's response to the words “America is under attack” was to continue reading the children’s book “My Pet Goat
Anyone who considers that response to threat to be acceptable IS
Basically I walked away from this article/email with the sense that (re Iraq), as a Christians, we should destroy the lives of others and then sit back and be grateful for what we have that they don't.
