YOUR CURMUDGEON has been reporting about Louisiana’s descent into creationist madness. Month by month, we’ve watched as the doltish, duplicitous, or deranged leaders of that state abandoned reason and embraced the darkness. First it was the legislature, then the governor, and now the state school board.
It’s been like watching Invasion of the Body Snatchers, except in this version, the pod-people have won in Louisiana. They’re all creationists!
Here’s a letter to the editor which appears in the Monroe News Star, published in northeastern Louisiana: Law creates pride in La..
Law creates pride! We’ll print the whole letter, omitting only the author’s name and city. This is so good that we won’t interrupt with our customary commentary between paragraphs, but we will add a bit of bold here and there:
I thank our legislators and governor for taking a stand for God. Our teachers will be able to teach evolution is only a theory. By teaching the option of creationism, I pray our children will realize God created them.
A Monroe attorney said it would be an economic catastrophe for Louisiana to be identified internationally as having passed anti-science legislation. He said Louisiana will suffer educational isolation and economic isolation.
If you polled Louisiana and asked everyone if they believe in God, probably over 95 percent would say yes. If you believe in God, you have to believe in the Bible.
The Bible says in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive my sin and will heal their land.”
If we will just do what God says, He will heal Louisiana. We will have more jobs than we have people to fill them. We need to start seeking God today. We need to start teaching our children the truth at home and in the classroom.
Let’s avoid a real economic catastrophe and put our trust in the One who really created the heavens, the earth and each one of us. It makes me proud to live in Louisiana where we have a government willing to stand for God. Who has enough faith to believe we came from a monkey?
[Writer’s name and city can be seen in the original.]
Maybe it’s better this way. Perhaps the people of Louisiana will be happy in their new alien identities. We’ll soon know, because this letter has given us a creationist prediction that can be tested by observations in this world. We’ll be watching for the predicted economic boom in Louisiana.
