Kat Cooper, LGBT Advocate, Receives Threatening Letter

One of my favourite past times is to try to figure out what I might learn from a person’s handwriting. Unfortunately, the only thing I can tell with any degree of certainty without formal training is a person’s age. People within the same generation tend to write similarly. So I’m fairly certain that the author of this vile letter is quite up in age. The handwriting is similar to what I recall my grandfather’s to be (he’s been gone 10 years): all caps.

It’s sickening that someone could hate another individual so much, I’m betting without knowing one single thing about her other than she’s a Lesbian and a detective, that they’d go to such lengths. The really sad part is that I bet this person goes to church every Sunday with so much hate in their heart, yet profess otherwise.

Earlier this year, we brought you the heartbreaking story of police detective Kat Cooper, whose family was asked to leave their Tennessee church after 60 years because Cooper fought to pass legislation that provided benefits to same-sex couples in the town where she worked.

And, sadly, it doesn’t seem like things are getting better for Cooper.

According to Cooper’s Facebook page, the police detective, who married her wife Krista in Maryland earlier this year, is continuing to fight tirelessly for the rights of lesbian and gay couples through the TEP Hamilton & Bradley Counties Committee.
