This seems to have gone a bit viral, with all sorts of sympathetic comments on the one side and bigotted and hateful ones on both. Most comments seem to be rather over-the-top on either side, IMO. It is amazing to see the number of commenters who leap, almost as an unthinking, knee-jerk reaction, and with the poorest of grammar and writing skills, to the defense of this poor couple.
As I see it, there are two possibilities:
- These notes are the work of someone on the level of Fred Phelps and therefore worthy only of being ignored as idiotic and irrelevant, or
- They are fakes designed to elicit sympathy for the one side and contempt for the other.
