Joe Conn, communications director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, sent the Dixie County Advocate in Florida a news release objecting to a Ten Commandments display in front of the local courthouse. The editor of the Advocate, a small weekly, responded:
From: Katherine McKinney
Sent: Monday, November 14, 2011 9:45 AM
To: Joe Conn
Subject: Re: Dixie County Commandments Display
Honestly, speaking for the people of Dixie County, we don’t give a damn what you think.
Editor, Dixie County Advocate
Perhaps Conn should have expected the response. In July, the Advocate posted this to its Facebook wall: “ALERT!! STUPID federal judge says Dixie has 30 days to remove the Ten Commandments from the Courthouse…. Post your reactions here for the paper.”
