Anyhow, his estranged kid claims that his civil rights work might not have been the product of egalitarian altruism, resulting in a torrent of crazy from his sister that is just full of comedy gold:
[S]he calls her brother Nathan a "rebel of God." She says her father didn't use racist language and Nathan wouldn't have been in a position to know.Shirley, did you ever stop to think that people don't hate your father because he's a believer, but rather because he's a rude jerk with the manners of a goat?
"Nathan is a tortured soul," she says. "He has no grace. God had no mercy upon him. He's hardened his heart."

God said the world would hate believers like her father in the last hours, she says.
