I really can't for the life of me understand how in the world any Orthodox Christian could enter this thread sympathetic to Robertson and/or indignant at the warranted support of Lilly Coyle’s masterpiece of a letter.
Mockery IS a valid form of criticism inasmuch as it suggests that the situation/argument/whatever being responded to is not even worthy of serious criticism on account of its inherently ridiculous nature. And so, after the consistent disobedience of the Israelites despite the numerous wonders and miracles wrought on their behalf, Isaiah the Prophet mocked his own people saying, "The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel does not understand, my people do not consider". The Prophets had reasoned with the Israelites for generations and generations; by the time of Isaiah the Prophet, they had witnessed their deliverance from a mighty nation, the red sea parting, their enemies being drowned whilst on their horses and chariots, food falling from the heavens etc. and yet they continued to disbelieve and disobey--mockery was surely called for. And it is called for here, especially given the consistent history of Mr Robertson coming out and making such pseudo-prophetic proclamations regarding the operation of God's will in a way that has the potential to turn many away from God.
Some have thought it noteworthy that Mr Robertson is one who professes Christ. Well, sorry, he does not profess my Christ. Not the Christ of the Church. Not in any way that is any closer to my Christ than the Christ of Arius, or the Christ of Muhammed the Prophet of Islam.
Lilly Coyle's letter is not only skilfully hilarious, but—and people seem to be missing this—it helps re-align proper sympathies to the Christian cause inasmuch as it presents, through humour, a proper image of the Christian God. This it does when it suggests that the picture of God presented by Mr Robertson—a "big mean bully who kicks people when they are down"—is in fact a satanic distortion and hence one the promotion of which, by people like Robertson, satan rejoices in. It also tactfully exposes the fallacy of the prosperity doctrine underlying Robertson’s idiotic logic.
Lilly Coyle only "poses" as satan inasmuch as such a rhetorical device helps effectively convey legitimate criticism of Mr Robertson's barbarically insensitive sentiments to the wider masses.
