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 Mike. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
There is much going on in this world to be angry about, but our anger must be rightly focused, measured and righteous, with truthful responses made.
Mike is angry, but that’s okay, because his anger is the good kind. He says:
On the other side, unbridled anger, baseless and unfounded in truth produces hatred and violence. It binds up resentment and bitterness in the person and blinds them to the rational, the reasonable. We see this anger regularly on the Hard Left.
We see it other places too, but that’s not relevant. Mike tells us:
Our culture is full of lies, lies that have been thrust and pressed upon us and as we oppose them we are demonized, intimidated and harassed. This is especially true of Christians who try to speak biblical truth to each issue.
Lies have been thrust and pressed upon us. You may have noticed that Mike likes to use synonyms — lots of them. He continues:
The biggest lie is that there is no Creator God but that we are products of mindless, purposeless, meaningless Evolution.
Ooooooooooooh! Evolution is bad — it’s also abominable, dreadful, and icky. Let’s read on:
This lie spins other lies about a vacuous, moldable human nature, its unbounded sexuality (heterosexual promiscuity, homosexuality and transgenderism are normal and natural), and that human life itself has no inherent value (free to abort).
Egad — unbounded sexuality! Here’s more:
Opposing these lies are the fact that God actually created distinct genders (male and female) with purpose and with sexual boundaries; and that life is sacred at all levels of development — made in the image of God from the womb.
Mike is right — those are the facts! And now we come to the end:
The difference between truth and the lies couldn’t be more stark. Have you given thought to what you actually believe?
Well, dear reader, have you given the matter any thought?
