Today’s letter-to-the-editor is brief, but very alarming. It appears in the Aiken Standard of Aiken, South Carolina. The title is Christianity is being removed from culture, 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 him by using his full name. His first name is Andy. 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!
Recently my wife and I went on vacation in Kentucky to visit the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. Boy was I impressed. [Who wouldn’t be?]
That, dear reader, is a great beginning. Wanna know what impressed Andy? Sure you do. He says:
They put us on buses which took us up to the top of a hill. There in the distance sat the largest wooden structure in the world, The Ark. [Gasp!] It was four stories tall and three football fields (900 feet) long.
Ooooooooooooh! What a glorious experience! Andy tells us:
While there, I bought servals [sic] DVDs by its’ [sic] founder Ken Ham with whom I was even more impressed.
Who wouldn’t be impressed by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else? Andy continues:
One of these [DVDs] was called “The Great Delusion/America Under Judgment”.
We found that DVD at Hambo’s bookstore: The Great Delusion. It costs only $12.99. Andy tells us about it:
The main goal of the One-World Government is too replace our faith in God to faith government, wrote Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt was the founder of the Order of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria, Germany.
Egad — the Illuminati! Wikipedia says: “The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power.” That’s horrible!
Hey — we’ve arrived at the end of Andy’s letter. Here it is:
This is the reason that all symbols and praise of Christianity must be removed from society. What we are witnessing before our very eyes, is the systematic demise of all Western Christian culture.
Fortunately, we have ol’ Hambo to fight the good fight. Great letter, Andy!
