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 Robert. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
This is a response to Wes Dickson’s slew of letters attacking God, Bible, conservatives and Republicans.
We can’t find a “slew” of Dickerson letters, only two, each pointing out a small inaccuracy in scripture. Here’s one of them: An alteration. But that’s enough to enrage Robert. He says:
Wes questioned God’s existence and actions. God’s existence is clearly seen by what he has made and by actual scientific data, [Hee hee!] but those who are spiritually blind want to reject God’s authority and remain willfully ignorant.
Go, Robert, go! He continues:
The general theory of evolution [not the special theory of evolution] has never been directly observed, putting it outside the realm of science, and it violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics. [Groan!]
He’s right — no one has ever seen a crocoduck. Then Robert tells us:
God created humans to have someone to love. You don’t get love from a robot, so he gave us free will. He is allowing everyone an opportunity to be saved before holding them accountable.
That makes sense. We’ve always treated our girl friends the same way. The rest of Robert’s letter is political. Here’s a bit of that stuff:
Wes falsely claimed President Trump rejects freedom of the press. Trump rightly criticized the liberal-biased press for censoring out things that don’t fit their narrative and often presenting fake news. … Wes claimed liberals, not conservatives, brought us wonderful things like Social Security, Medicare and abolition of slavery.
Republican President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, which was favored by Republicans and opposed by Democrats. The 1964 Civil Rights Act was approved by 80 percent of Republicans and only 60 percent of Democrats. The KKK was composed of Democrats.
That’s it — a tangled mess of creationism and party politics. Unfortunately, it’s a reflection of the real world these days. Make of it what you will, dear reader.
