Today’s letter-to-the-editor is titled We’ve turned our backs on God. It appears in what had been the Intelligencer Journal-Lancaster New Era (now renamed LNP), of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and they have 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 Homer. 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!
Alongside Darwinian evolution, I consider man-made climate change to be the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the human race.
You gotta admit, dear reader, that’s a great beginning — and we’re just getting started. Homer says:
Multitudes are joining this campaign, led by indiscriminate, secular scientists who reject the biblical worldview and the authority of Scripture. (Hello, Al Gore.)
Those secular scientists are godless, hell-bound fools! Homer tells us:
I believe the mainstream media has largely suffocated the voices of those who reject this notion. [Suffocated!] In my opinion, the goal of this relentless crusade is a worldwide order, stripping America of its nationalism and coercing us into a worldwide government. [Gasp!] This is why President Donald Trump wisely pulled out of the Paris climate accord.
Aha, so that’s why. Homer continues:
Serious environmental concerns must be addressed. But I believe the growing weather phenomena of floods, hurricanes and fires is the result of a world that has turned its back on the God of the Bible. Rebellion and sin are the reasons for the turbulence and upheaval on planet Earth.
Wow — what a brilliant theory! Bad weather is caused by rebellion and sin. Homer explains:
God controls the weather, the seasons and the order of the universe as well as the rise and fall of the governments of history. Simply put, we’re under the judgment of God.
That makes sense. There’s not much else to be said, so Homer ends his brief letter with this:
According to Scripture, the day will come when Earth will be cleansed and purified at the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and given over to all who believe in his name.
When that day comes, Homer will be rewarded. What about you, dear reader?
