This is your lucky day, dear reader. We have a second letter-to-the-editor for you. This one appears in the Palladium-Item of Richmond, Indiana. The letter is titled Time to reject amoral thinking, return to God’s word, and the newspaper has a comments section.
Because the writer may not be a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Harold. 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!
When we decided to jettison God and His word as our moral authority and decided we were nothing but an accident of evolution [Gasp!] we became by nature amoral beings having no moral authority to guide us.
Evolution and atheism are the same to Harold. And if you’re one of those hell-bound evolutionists, you have no morals, dear reader. Harold says:
I once asked an atheist who was his moral authority. He replied, “The group.” “The group” who at one time thought it was moral to kill Jewish people and to enslave people of a different race. [Religious folks have done the same.] That amoral thinking believes it is a moral act to slaughter innocent unborn children. Even now they are discussing the taking the lives of some born alive.
According to Harold, no religious person — presumably also a creationist — would ever be involved in abortions. But that’s not atheists’ only depravity. In addition to that he tells us:
If one person asks another to perform a sexual act which may bring on serious illness, even death [Huh?], it is acceptable if it is done under the guise of a “loving relationship.” We redefined traditional marriage to include any who have a “consensual loving relationship.”
What kind of sex is Harold talking about? Anyway, he continues:
Now all taboos are lifted. [Hooray!] Age limits, incest, polygamy are all acceptable once the participants claim a “consensual loving relationship.” The precedent has been set. [Who set the precedent — Darwin?] However, do not be shocked by what is coming.
Egad, what’s coming? Let’s read on:
From 1974 to 1984, in the U.K. the Pedophile Information Exchange [The what?] was allowed to openly lobby Parliament for legal acceptance of pedophilia.
Anything else? Apparently so. Here’s another excerpt:
On Feb. 28, 2011, psychology experts claimed before the Canadian parliament that pedophilia is a “sexual orientation” comparable to homosexuality or heterosexuality.
Look what Darwin has unleashed upon us! Harold finishes his frightening letter with this:
Maybe it’s time to get back to God and His word.
Maybe. Or maybe not. What do you think, dear reader?
