Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Countywide & Sun of Tecumseh, Oklahoma (population 6,457). The letter doesn’t have a title, but you can find it here: Letters To The Editor, 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 her by using her full name. Her first name (or two) is Ona Faye. 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!
We in our country continued to try to replace God with ourselves. Years ago we allowed evolution [Gasp!] to be taught in schools as a fact, which it is not. God made the world and everything in it, [scripture reference].
Ona Faye ends almost every sentence with a scripture reference. For readability we won’t mention them — but you should know that Ona Faye has solid references for everything. Okay, then she says:
In 1963 we allowed prayer to be banned from our schools because some people did not like it. [Gasp!] From that time schools only got worse. [Of course!] Then we decided women had a right to have their unborn babies murdered. [Oh no!] So we thought we could take God’s place in who could live and who must die. God has not forgotten this atrocity and He will judge us.
This sad account of our sins isn’t over yet. It gets worse! She tells us:
And if that wasn’t enough, we decided that we could control the weather by using global warming or climate change as a means to this end.
Outrageous! Ona Faye continues:
The scientists and doctors have found cures for many diseases and have developed a lot of things that made life easier. Instead of giving glory to God we pat ourselves on the back and say how smart we all are. [We’re fools!]
Can you handle any more, dear reader? All right, let’s read on:
Christmas has become just an exercise in selling and buying. Stores start Christmas rush before Halloween. For the most part secular songs are played that have nothing to do with Christ’s birth.
Tragic indeed. Can it get any worse? Sadly, the answer is yes. Here it comes:
We are so confused we don’t even know what sex we are, male or female, or something in between.
Egad! Ona Faye knows all about you, dear reader. The only good news is that we’ve arrived at the end of her letter:
Please get right with God, please accept Christ as your Savior, for the signs are getting more and more obvious of Christ’s return.
Listen to Ona Faye, dear reader. She knows what she’s talking about.
