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 Margaret. 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!
You know things are bad on the farm when it hits national news. The continual rains have played havoc with planting and many farmers have given up on getting crops into the ground. I’ve been on this farm 66 years and this is the first year that NOTHING was planted during May.
We all sympathize with Margaret. Then she says:
The fact is we are TOTALLY dependent on God – for everything! [Totally!] He sends the rain and sunshine, the cold and heat. For too long, we have gone our merry way, taking for granted His blessings and not even bothering to say ‘Thank you” to Him for all He does for us. [That’s terrible!] We call it a woman’s ‘choice’ to kill off her baby, when the Bible clearly tells us that babies are to be treasured, not trashed. “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord” Psalm 127:3.
We are truly horrible! After that, Margaret tells us:
We have declared our independence of Him by totally ignoring Him in public life. We kicked Him out of our school system a long time ago, teaching our children that they evolved from apes [Gasp!] and bemoan the fact now that shootings are commonplace in public schools across the nation.
That’s why there are so many school shootings! Margaret continues:
His Holy Name is mocked and used in vain on TV and there is no shame. Now there is a movement afoot to reconfigure sexual identification. [Oh no!] God clearly states in Genesis 1:27: “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female. He created them.”
What have we done! Let’s read on:
And how can any person with half a brain not see that God did, indeed, create humankind and our world? How could random evolution [Yuk!] possibly produce a male and female of every species of bird, insect and fish? And not only produce them, but make them capable of reproduction? THINK, people, THINK!!
Yeah, THINK! Another excerpt:
The fact is we are all totally dependent on Him for our life, our breath, our being. If God withdraws His hand of blessing on the USA, we are finished.
Ooooooooooooh! What can we do? Fortunately, Margaret tells us in her last paragraph:
It’s time we as Americans confessed our rebellion to the Almighty and turned back to Him in simple, trusting faith. He gives us the freedom to choose.
There you have it, dear reader, According to Margaret, if you don’t turn back to the old ways, we’re doomed! So whatcha gonna do?
