Subject: Where was God on September 11th?1. September 2002 found a plethora of atheists writing on the Internet questioning the failure (of the 'god' they don't believe in!) to act in the human way they thought 'he/she/it' should have behaved!
We heard no more from these intellectual giants and, until we came to re-check the material for inclusion in this e-mail response section, we had not visited Judith and Pat's work. In January, 2008, we decided to check their site but could not locate it. A search revealed:
No different was the website of Judith Hayes - self-styled 'Happy Heretic' ( www.the happyheretic.com ) - and we could not resist sending a large excerpt from John Blanchard's booklet, 'Where was God on September 11?' Who knows - maybe a little reading might just provoke some dialogue, or thought (at least?).

I am the one who filters Judith's mail call before sending normal messages on to
her. (READ THE GUIDELINES) Your message will never be seen by Judith. If you don't like what she writes THEN DON'T READ IT, ***HOLE. Get a life.

If we don't read what she writes how are we going to know if we like it?!
Was your use of kindergarten language meant to blow us away in frustration, or embarrass us into silence?
You have merely confirmed that you cannot cope with a logical response and exist on the mental level of all cults following the teachings of men.
Thank you for your quotes which utterly expose your bigotry - they were all we needed for our website.

Let's try this again ...
The Opening CHAPTER 1
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

NOW: WHAT PART OF "***K OFF" DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND!!

Did you really think we would be dull enough to waste our time reading the whole of an irrelevant spiel written by a false religionist - or would we go straight to your devastatingly un-original punch-line?
What kind of people are you used to conversing with?
It surely must have crossed your little mind that you are incapable of holding a meaningful dialogue with Christians who trust in God?
Shame, not like atheists to be rude and complaining - or to care for those who might need them to get through IT …
Where's Judith Hayes?
Does anyone know what happened to Judith Hayes, aka The Happy Heretic? She used to post articles to her web site, thehappyheretic.com. That site hasn't been active for quite some time now. Did she just get fed up? Did she leave a forwarding address?

RE: Where's Judith Hayes?
Yes, I just got fed up. After 12 years of researching and writing and thinking and writing and back surgery and writing and LIFE and writing....…
Writing is not the same as typing. Duh. Someone actually timed himself on how long it took him to type out a long letter to his brother or whatever and made a comparison to my writing. Then he asked me why I was bitching about how much work my column was. Gimme a break.
That's where the rub came in. I received many demanding messages on the SECOND of any month if my Current Column was not yet posted. No appreciation at all, just "Where the ***k is it?" Excuse me?? Didn't know I was your unpaid servant, sir. I'll try to do better next month, sir. Yeah, that was the rub.
However, I didn't know when I "quit" that so many people depended on me to help them get through IT. It's not easy getting through IT. If enough people want me back I will do it. But there is so much out there on the blogosphere that I don't see as how's I'll be missed! (Did I phrase that right?)
Anyway, you'll notice that WHOEVER took over two years to notice I was missing! Guess I'm not needed so much!
