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 Billie. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Tragedy again! Why are we surprised about people using guns, trucks, and bombs to kill people? We have planted violence on television shows, in movies, and on the games our children play. It doesn’t matter what instrument you use, the fact is, if you have been brainwashed with violence, you will become violent.
You’ve been brainwashed, dear reader. Billie says:
We all know, in our hearts, that when we took God out of our culture, we were planting the seeds of rebellion and now we are beginning to see the harvest. We took prayer and the Bible out of our schools and put in security fences and armed guards. We let the Supreme Court tell us we could kill babies and we wonder why some think that life is cheap.
Yes, we’re all monsters now. Life was so much better when religion was running everything. Billie tells us even more things we’re doing wrong:
We let the courts decide that pornography was good and prayer was bad and we shifted the foundation out from under our children. In the name of tolerance, we allowed people to intimidate us into accepting immorality. We allowed our schools to teach the false theory of evolution, and they refused to teach about creation, our Christian heritage, or our Constitution and now we have children who cannot read, think, or act like patriots.
Yup — evolution in, creationism out. And now we see the results. Billie continues:
We could change things. Hollywood could stop producing movies that ridicule Christianity and promote violence, sexual perversion, and pornography.
We need religious control of the movie industry! Let’s read on:
We could refute the lie about separation of church and state and insist that prayer, the Bible and the Ten Commandments be put back into our schools and our courts.
Billie knows what he’s talking about! One last excerpt, before a bible quote which ends the letter:
We could repent and pray, asking God to forgive our country.
Those are all good suggestions, Billie. Let’s bring back that old-time theocracy. Great letter!
