Hi, editors. I was going to write a riposte to Kurt Standiford's latest lunatic rant in "Postmarks" [online, Dec. 11], but he rendered doing so superfluous when he jumped the shark by advocating homicide in the name of being "pro-life." Standiford, right after he insists that Christians don't pass judgment on others, advocates shooting doctors as a far better means of reducing abortions than, say, comprehensive sex education. And he claims this is rational insight. Truly remarkable. I can now say I've heard it all. Are there no depths of madness to which religious extremists will not stoop? Standiford's pathological hatred of gays and lesbians is a matter of record. In his latest screed he extends that hatred to women ("little office tart" – but remember, he's not "passing judgment"), revealing a personality so warped by rage, confusion, and hypocrisy that Standiford's very day-to-day existence must be almost inconceivably bleak and nightmarish. Isn't it well past time for the American Psychological Association to declare this kind of religious extremism a mental disorder?
