This is a short and simple letter-to-the-editor. It appears in the News-Gazette of Champaign, Illinois, and it doesn’t look like they have a comments feature. The letter is titled Our society has been poisoned.
Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Her first name is Deanna. Excerpts from her letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Christians are keepers of the well of a society. [So true!] The well has been poisoned [Gasp!], poisoned by men and women unfaithful to their marriage vows, modeling at home how not to love one another.
How horrible! Deanna says:
Poisoned by evolution [Oh no!]; human life is no longer sacred. Parents abdicating their roles as primary teachers of what children are taught.
It’s a nightmare! After that she tells us:
Enter abortion, the quick fix. Now young people can make up their own minds to what sex they are.
Egad! She continues:
Marriage is the mark of a civilized society. [Yes!] Led by liars to be ignorant of those tenants [sic] of a free society, we are detached from the head (God). We devolve into a tribal society.
What can be done? Deanna gives us the answer:
Return to God, honor your vows to God, marriage and the Constitution of the United States. “Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord.”
That’s great advice! But wait — she ends her letter with one more piece of advice:
At least, vote (Republican) and God may yet grant us his grace.
*Groan* Well, dear reader, that’s all we could find this morning. Make of it what you will.
