Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Southwest Times Record of Fort Smith, Arkansas, on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border. The letter is titled Teaching the Bible is the solution, and the newspaper has a comments feature.
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 Curtis. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
December exposes all the hypocrites and their double standards. They throw a fit when our government of the people, by the people and for the people place a nativity scene on government property to please the vast majority of tax payers. The same ones that cry Democracy (majority rules), in all other situations, will now cry Republic and Constitution to further their agenda. They lie and say they are Democrats or Republicans but actually they are Communist because they try to destroy a generation’s faith in God, family and country.
Wow! Curtis thinks that democracy means theocracy, and anyone who argues for the Constitutional system established by the Founders is a communist. We’re off to a great start! Then he says:
Also, there is an organized effort to force retailers to say “happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.” They are trying to eliminate the true reason for the Christmas season, which is [bible, bible, bible].
Yes, it’s a vicious conspiracy! After that, Curtis tells us:
Of course, anyone can protest our believing, teaching and practicing in an honorable way. Just go to work on Christmas day, or if you can’t work, just don’t take holiday pay and you will not be a hypocrite.
That’s how to avoid being a hypocrite. Curtis continues:
They use Hollywood to destroy our morals, self-respect and everything that we deem sacred.
So true! Let’s read on:
Our learning centers teach evolution as a fact and that destroys the sanctity of life and produces serial killers.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Teaching evolution produces serial killers! Another excerpt:
They teach humanism, a no-God philosophy, therefore there is no higher authority than our mind and this opens the door for all types of criminal activity that will require more police, jails and prisons.
How horrible! What can we do? In his final paragraph, Curtis gives us the answer
The solution to our destructive ways is to teach the Bible in every classroom and teach about sin, Satan, Jesus, the only savior, family values and how to be a true citizen of these United States.
Fantastic letter! Thanks, Curtis.
