To The Daily Sun,
After reading James Veverka's latest epistle of hate, it further confirms my desire to confront the nasty, destructive nature of his anti-religious rantings and ravings. According to the soothsayer of secularism, politics must not be influenced whatsoever by religion. Funny, I don't remember him chastising the religious, political system that is Islam. Perhaps I missed that letter. Anyway, his attack on religion and especially evangelicals was very enlightening. More ignorance than knowledge, far less informed than they think they are and "village idiots" are a few phrases he used to belittle evangelicals and conservative letter writers to The Daily Sun. Why thank you James, it is the nicest thing you have ever said to me.
For shame all you conservative Christians, he laments. Your fanatical beliefs are akin to Christian Sharia and will lead to a theocratic nation where those beliefs will be enforced by the government. Why did you all know that conservative Christians were against women's rights and desegregation? Full of bigotry and ignorance while spreading junk science and attacking education and intellectuality are more insinuations by the V-man. His tenacious research has apparently uncovered the fact that secretive atheist movements have arisen in Saudi Arabia and Iran. Finally, James assures us that "The government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." Now, who among us is not dazzled by Veverka's highbrowism and pseudo-intellectualism. Is it just possible that it is he who has had his cognition fooled by the Dunning-Kruger Effect?
For someone of Veverka's intelligence, his ignorance regarding our Constitution and our history is, dare I say, bordering on "village idiocy." Our Constitution embodies Judeo-Christian values throughout it's passages. Constitutional scholar Robert Arvay notes that our government would be an empty shell without the Hebrew and Christian laws that provided the vital foundation. He goes on to say, "Many constitutions since 1788 have been tried and failed, making ours the oldest continuous one in the world, because it is found not on shifting sand, but on the eternal rock of truth."
In 1892, our Supreme Court said the historical record of America demonstrates that the United States is a Christian nation, in the case of Holy Trinity v. United States. The Mayflower Compact document affirms that the founding of our new government is "for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith". While James claims to honor our Constitution, his worldview would destroy it just like all other secular humanistic, morally vapid constitutions of old have been rendered useless.
Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy, get off your "highbrow horse" and pay attention as to why our Constitution has weathered the dangers of cultural Marxism and cultural relativism. John Adams has nailed it, "the Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." I felt an obligation to respond to Mr. Veverka because the very soul of this spiritual nation is under assault by many others of his ilk. You see James, unlike Islam, which is focused on gaining status through goods works by following the Qur'an, Christianity does not promise salvation through good works.
The whole point of Christianity is understanding that no one person is good enough. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", (Romans 3:23). The apostle Paul said, "And this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boas,t" (Ephesians 2:8-9). As investigative journalist James Simpson reminds us, "pride is number one on the list of the seven deadly sins. It elevates mankind for his works, and says, we are better than you because of what we do. That kind of thinking justifies practically every form of evil on earth, from prejudice to genocide." So as usual, James has been duped by his secular, atheist views, which he apparently believes gives him license to speak as though he is superior to conservative Christians. It's similar to the Democrats believing that their superiority has given them the right to do whatever they have to do to undermine a duly elected president. In my humble opinion, James is nothing more than the Prince Poppycock of Condescension, given his patronizing put-downs of those who believe in the wonder of Jesus Christ and conservative, Christian principles.
