Over the years, as a writer and human rights activist, Christina has accumulated some rather amusing poorly-spelled hate mail and even a few death threats.

[This one came from a local self-appointed “pastor”, posted on a Facebook advert for “Malice!“. I wonder if he ever realized it’s a collection of horror short stories?]

[As you might know, I do indulge in a little social media activism, and sometimes I get naughty notes from some butt-hurt religious extremists and fascists and homophobes, such as this one who says he’s going to start a Facebook group “Against Christina Engela”! LMAO – more free publicity than I can shake a stick at! Oh, goodie! 😛 ]

[I was tagged in post on Facebook to find this little gem. Once I commented to thank the poster for the free publicity, I was blocked, but at least I managed to save this copy. Looks a lot like the work of my old Captonian ‘fan’ Becca 😉 Fewer grammar & spelling errors, but just about as many exclamation marks!]

[I’ve seen memes like this one popping up on Facebook, being pushed by asshat fundamentalist types, accusing me of ‘promoting the gay agenda’ among other things – although I think these people could use an open mind! 😛 Anyhow, it seems some people find it amusing, as can be seen by the comment made by this re-poster!]

[The South African right wing ‘Christian’ community went hysterical about a free e-book giveaway contest held in my Facebook author group in August – in which I gave away a sample of my ‘demonic writings’, ‘promoting homosexuality, sodomy and demon worship’! – oh well, just doing my bit to advance that pervasive ‘homosexual agenda’ they’re so terrified of! 😛 …Perhaps I should send a free, signed copy? ]

[Also shared by the same poster with ‘flat earth’ memes in a different post – which pretty much sums it up. 😛 ]

[“Please, for the sake of ARE children” – go back to school and learn how to spell & grammar! 😛 The South African ‘Christian Right’ lately seems to have got their knickers in a knot about my fiction writing. Interesting little poster they’ve got there – at least they used decent screen-grabs and managed to spell my name right…]

[This dominionist bigot posted multiple brain-farts all over the Facebook page for ‘Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You‘ (my children’s book about homophobic bullying). What’s so amusing about this is that in doing so, he completely missed the irony in a homophobic bigot trying to bully the author of a children’s book about homophobic bullying… haai, foei tog, shame. ]

[According to Michael Halleck who writes Facebook messages in SMS format like a Trump supporter, my writing is ‘really not that good’ and he ‘wasted a whole night reading it’ (I’m surprised he made it past the copyright notice). You can trust him – he’s an expert. He should know me – after all, he was on my Facebook ‘friends’ list for almost a whole 24 hours – and has the manners of a red-horned wildebeest on heat.]

im surprised; you an equal rights activists; deplore religion for its propensity to violence yet u like so many violent movies (Star Trek, Starwas, Tom & Jerrie, & Oh; Barak Obama’s quote yes we can, can what, blast those Afghans to smitherings); Stop the hypocrisy please or is it incoherence. I believe in revolutionary violence to bring about real peace and equality. Please enjoy you next move of violence pink lady”
[Star Trek is violent?! Really? ‘Tom & Jerrie’ (sic)? What is ‘Starwas’? …and ‘Smitherings’? Then he is still cocky enough to accuse me of ‘hypocrisy’ and ‘incoherence’ 😛 – after saying he believes in ‘revolutionary violence to bring about real peace and equality’! Someone needs to take that bag of crack back to his dealer and ask for a refund… 😛 ]

It is so sad to see your rantings and ravings and you miss the whole point.The ideas and values you attribute to God is plain blasphemy and from your own mind.When will you actually meet the real Jesus Christ and stop presenting the false christ which is from your own depraved mind.I cannot call you a sister in Christ as you are certainly not.My comment may seem harsh and you no doubt would attack me ,if you could only see how miserably confused you are.Just think after all your lies expressed above in Jesus’s name and you actually believing that you are a Christian and you end up in hell with Satan -so sad.Are you lesbian too?”

“Subject: If God does not punish U!!!
I stand against all evil! – and I do not like the tone and the abusive language U guys are using! I would like see everyone created by God find redemption through Jesus Christ. Homosexuality is an evil and vile abomination in the eyes of God. I am against homosexuality and the homosexual movement.
Christina Engela and all of U who practise and take pride in homosexuality (including the nations that condone it), I almost would say, like Pst. John Hagee, “If God does not punish U then He will apologise to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Fear God and desist from sodomy and lesbianism
Otherwise you shall burn in hell forever
no matter what you claim, gays are not born that way. animals are not gay, so human who are more superior should know better.
God destroyed the people of Lot. God created a male with a male organ -female with a female organ. they fit like gloves (male-female). what horridnes to insert a male orgin into an anus filled with excreta. yes this is the punishment of hell where red hot steel poles will be shoved into the anus. so you guys are enacting hell.
Dont hide behind the mercy of God. God will PUNISH wrong doers. Why do you think He created Hell? For fun??
In this world you are being punished with aids. Recent research revealed that if you pelt a person to death with stones, his death looks very similar to a person who have died of aids. Glaring punishment.
I do not judge you, I am simply guiding you to the correct path. If you see a person heading down a dangerous road and you shout to him to stop, you do not call that “judging” – in fact it is a noble act otherwise he may die.
Gay is simply an evil desire which must be curbed. God will not punish you for your desire, He will punish you if you impliment the desire physically
From your email I gain that you reject God. That is your baby. You shall die and we shall die. You reject the day of Judgment – but beware if you are wrong.
Maybe your emotions are running away with you. You do not have the faintest idea of sex. You and your group simply think that sex is a toy to simply stimulate your penis/pussy. This is animal behaviour. You do not realize that sex is not simply a desire that MUST be fulfilled, no matter how or with whom. Your corruption will lead people to have sex with mother, father, daughter and son and even animals.- yet you wish to claim that this is “natural” behaviour.
Natural!! Sis most nauseating!!
Natural sex was created to create offspring (without natural sex you would not be here today). Can gay produce offspring? If God did not make sex “tasty” no one would have children.
But your taste is corrupted and influenced by Satan.
Remember, once you indulge in Satan style sex, you will dislike God’s natural ways. I once asked a female divorcee friend that would she ever consider a remarriage. She lamented and said that since she got involved in an orgy with two men, she no longer have any desire for one man only. She tried once but the session was hopelessly dry –SHE COULD NOT CLIMAX until she has this satan style sex with two men. Similarly, you gays will never be able to climax naturally any longer–(what a curse!).
No I am not jealous, rather I pity you. I pity a person who dislikes a clean slice of bread in favour of a morsal of excreta taken from the toilet”

You know, we all are born into the same world. We were all made fun of and bullied at some stage, but we grow up and become what we want to be in life. I have read your personal life story because I wanted to know why you have become so hateful toward God. What happened in your life that God has become the bad guy? At first when I read your openly blatant letters and blog, I was determined to defend the honour of God and publicly bring down your arguments in the light of the Word of God.
You see, as a believer in Christ, I cannot allow anything that exalts itself above the knowledge of God to stand. As a believer, I am obliged to defend the faith at all costs. As you have noticed, I take this very seriously and will not quit until I feel the battle has been won for the Lord. I know I am wrong sometimes in how I express myself, that I might hurt sensitive people, but I am also just human and God will forgive me and over time make my heart softer than it is now.
Now, why am I writing to you, my public ‘enemy’? I have read your story and I felt pity for you and how you grew up and the bad things you experienced. I can understand much of your pain and what lead to it. I am not the most sensitive guy and can be quite a blunt instrument sometimes, but I felt compassion in my heart for you. I just wanted to let you know that I do not hate you, nor would I treat you the same as you were treated per your experience.
You must understand, that I cannot sit back and become passive and let godless philosophies and practices go by and do nothing. If I know what is right and true and do nothing, God will hold me accountable for it. The gay agenda is being pushed down our throats globally very aggressively for acceptance and I can never accept it. That is why, when I read the things you write wrongly about God, Christians and spread your false doctrines, I get really pissed off and you invite me for a stand off. I will every single time, challenge anybody, anywhere to defend the Honour and Glory of the Most High God, Who alone is Holy. I am His child and I have His Spirit leading me to attack and bring down the works of Satan wherever I find it.
I am just so sorry that you are on the wrong side of this battle, regardless of your traumas and life experiences.God does not hate you. He brought you life. He made you so carefully in the womb of your mother. He made you for a very special reason to fulfill a very special task that only you can do. I honestly wish that you could just sit and think about this. God made you the way you are, not gay or lesbian or perverse. Neither did He make a mistake. You need to find out what your purpose is in life and fulfill it in God. If you truly know God as He really is, you will see that He is different than how you might feel about Him now. You were never born gay, just different. Not gay, but sensitive. You can be who you truly are without practicing homosexuality or promoting it.
The reason that God brings judgement is to set right what went wrong or what deviated from His ways and plans. He is obliged to act in righteousness because He is a righteous King and His own Holiness demands that justice be done fairly to all. God does not take pleasure in destruction, but He will destroy if His creation is in danger of becoming a place of darkness. You need to stop backing the wrong players here. It will not end well for you. Only in God will you find true peace and happiness.
Do not hate God for what people did to you. My cousin also claims to be gay and has caused great distress and unhappiness in himself and his family. He is a sensitive guy with sensitive tastes and preferences. I say claim to be gay, because I believe he has always believed he was gay because other boys always called him sissie or moffie, because he did not play rugby and had a sensitive demeanor. I don’t believe he is gay, but he does because he has believed everything that was ever said to him over a long time. So, if everyone tells you that you are gay, then you must be, right? He also has a very tough, emotionally unavailable alcoholic dad who wanted a rugby playing tough son and an overbearing, overprotective mother and grandmother who dressed him in froks and dresses since he was a baby. I can understand that he has issues with his male identity, but it does not change that he is still a man, although just a sensitive one with other talents.
I am afraid though, that he will believe it enough to engage in gay sex and then it’s a different story. I do love him, but I will not make an exception even for him, when defending the truth of God that homosexuality is very wrong and God does hate it. God really does desire the gays to come to a realization of the truth so that He can save them and keep them close to His bosom. So, that is my sincere prayer for you too..
We are both people. We both have faults. I were saved by God when I decided that my life was not worth living because I felt there was no purpose in the emptiness that the world offered me. I turned to God to save me from my own destructive tendencies and to give me peace and belonging. God is my Father and I do love Him very much. He is always good. He will be good to you too, if you want to find Him…
PS. Although I do feel compassion for you, it does not mean that I will not in future attack any of your arguments if they happen to be against the truth and way of God as revealed in the Bible. If you promote gay and lesbian lifestyles and try to justify it in any way, I will be there publicly fighting it. I do not mind if you want to communicate privately or if you have questions about certain things.”

You should not confuse disagreement with hate. I served in the ACDP up to provincial executive level for several years, and not once did I hear anyone speak ill of homosexuals as people.
Just because somebody hates what you do and your lifestyle can in no way be construed as hate for you as a person.
I have been dealing with CAN as well, and I have read almost all their online articles on the subject of homosexuality, and I have never heard or read an expression of hatred from them concerning homosexuals as people.
I hope you can see the difference.
May God truly have mercy on you, your family and friends. “
[The organizations he defended have an almost 30 years history of very vocal activist and political homophobic and transphobic hatred, bullying and lobbying to their names. I doubt he will ever be able to see the difference.]

Congratulations on closing your wall – now stop spamming FB groups with your comments. People are entitled to their own opinion, I’m sure you learnt that at your church. Democracy – you don’t believe in it hence you closed the wall. Well done!
Quit slandering me otherwise you will face legal action.
Your obscene messages in the group have been forwarded to FB. I’m sure they will deal with it as they see fit. Deleted in the group maybe but they are still available to FB.
[Dear ‘tinag’ whoever you are, you can just cram your insults and your threats where the sun doesn’t shine and think happy, happy dominionist bullshit thoughts all day long. Meanwhile, here is the five minutes of fame you were after. Sionara, bra-strap.]
