Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is John. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
As taught in our schools, colleges and universities, evolution’s effects on our morals and society are that of an “anti-religion,” teaching we are intelligent animals, not a special creation. Though only a theory, extrapolating back some 41/2 billion years, evolution is treated as undeniable truth.
Gasp — evolution is only a theory! That means it’s worthless! Then John says:
Former University of Oxford Professor Richard Dawkins, author of the book, “Blind Watchmaker,” believes passionately in evolution. Atheism, he believes, is a logical deduction from Darwinism (evolution). The world would be better off, he says, if more people shared this view.
Richard Dawkins is obviously a fool! Let’s read on:
Evolutionists, unwilling to share our classrooms with our almost 400-year-old religious custom of creation, brought their complaints to the courts, where liberal judges ruled against this religious custom.
Huh? Creationism is only a “400-year-old religious custom”? We thought it was scriptural doctrine going back to the days of the Babylonian Empire when Genesis was written. Well, we won’t argue with John. How could we? His letter was published in the Enid News & Eagle. He continues:
To remove this religious custom from our schools, the “separation of church and state” tradition has been repeatedly quoted and treated as equal to the Constitution. Though this “separation” is an important custom still, it is now law.
This is amazing! Separation of church and state is only a tradition, or custom, which is “treated as equal to the Constitution.” Here’s more:
Our Judeo-Christian religion teaches that homosexuality is an abomination to God, while California teaches kindergartens that homosexuality is another lifestyle. Though three-fourths of Utah voters are against same-sex marriage, a liberal judge shoved it down their throats.
Egad! That was an unnecessarily vivid way to express it, but it certainly gets the point across. Moving along:
A Kentucky Christian woman was jailed because of her Christian beliefs …
That Kentucky woman is probably Kim Davis, the county clerk who was held in contempt when she defied a court order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, and was jailed for a period of five days. But we interrupted John’s sentence. It continues:
and now, sex transgender restrooms are forced upon us!
There’s no end to the horror of evolution! This is the conclusion of John’s letter:
This smacks somewhat of King Charles I of England, back in 1630, telling the Puritans and Catholics they must conform, or else!
But when those abused Puritans came to America, they were free to do things their way, so they conducted the Salem witch trials. Presumably, that’s part of the 400 year-old custom John wants preserved, instead of our misguided idea of separation of church and state.
