Using language to spread hate

There is a current thread on the HOB/D list that a often published conservative writer has incorrectly identitfied the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. The web is full if wrong mistaken and even hateful references to the Presiding Bhishop. Here are a few:

Mrs. Schori
Presiding Bishopess
Dr. J-S
PB Schori
Bishop Schofield
Presiding Marine Biologist
Presiding Heretic
Presiding Cephalapod
the Empty Mitre in NYC
Queen Katie
Administrator of the TEc cult

Also these comments are made about her:

The Presiding Bishop's office is vacant as you are not qualified for this position.

Sorry, Katharine Jefferts Schori is an image-bearer not of Christ but of Satan

Why doesn't she just send her Flying Monkeys? Is she afraid someone might throw water on her?

heil schori

Given these comments how can anyone suggest that the mistakes are innocence or just mistakes. The statements are made by supposed Christians and are filled with hate and sexism. I won't even start on the pictures that are posted on the internet.

Most ironic many of them appear on a site called stand firm. Stand fim has this on its masthead.

Be on your guard.

Stand firm in the faith.

Be brave.

Be strong.

Be loving in everything you do.

Not much evidence of being loving found there.
