Readers judge my columns on a literary scale starting with Garbage, to Groan, to Gobbledygook, to Good, to Great and one reader even suggested the Nobel Prize! Well, more about that later.
Some recent critics are good people with whom I disagree and others are dumb as a box of rocks. Recently I have been criticized by good people about what is acceptable in defense of the faith and my position on origins.
One of the many conservative websites that have published my columns has informed me that they refused to publish some columns because of my “harsh tone.” They declared that we “don’t want to lower ourselves to the level of Trump with name calling and anger.” They asked that I “bring down the tone and take out the name calling.” I have no recriminations with them for their criticism; although I disagree with them after serious consideration.
After all, circumstances call for unusual actions. Even Christ used such terms as hypocrites
, fools, murderer, liar
, and whited sepulchres.
The Apostle Paul declared, thou child of the Devil, sinners
, evil beasts,
and slow bellies.
The Apostle John used false prophet, deceiver, antichrist
; Luke used barbarians, false prophet
; and Jude used filthy dreamers and brute beasts,
etc. Some name-calling is done to ridicule people. As shown above, much name-calling is done to challenge and rebuke or to warn others.
I am convinced that we are in a war, a serious war on many fronts; and winning wars requires many people with various skills. We need cooks, intelligence agents, strategists, pilots, infantrymen, and special forces that operate behind enemy lines. I’m a soldier in this battle for creationism, countering atheism, abortion, public education, Islam, etc. That conservative website has every right to take the position they have taken. They are doing a great job in this battle but I am responsible for what I am called and equipped to do. We can each do our own thing in our own way in this war.
It must be stated that I am never dishonest, devious, or disingenuous but I am direct. I am never vulgar. In the article that prompted the criticism, I used such words as sanctimonious hypocrites
for liberals. Well, of course they are sanctimonious hypocrites; and to soften the words puts me at risk of having so much tact that I lose my attack. I also wrote, “Liberalsdemand that vile perverts
be permitted to teach in schools but vocal Christian teachers should be gagged!” Well, that’s a little strong, but it is absolutely accurate. Both vile
are good Anglo-Saxton words that have been used and respected for centuries. Those wordsare resented today–especially by vile perverts!
I called liberals windbag liberals
and I think that is very good description of them. I went on to call liberals Bozos of the Busybody Roundtable
and accused them of being lifetime members of the League of the Willfully Blind
. Now, they are not card-carrying members of such groups but like the Communists, they stopped carrying cards long ago.
I closed with “Sanctimonious liberals are divisive, dopy, and dangerous people and they are
the enemy to good government and common sense.” That’s a little strong but I stand by it.
I was told by some in my battle with evolutionists that I could “catch more flies with honey than with vinegar”; however, I am not trying to catch flies but kill skunks. Evolutionists are destroying untold numbers of innocent youth. That makes me alarmed, agitated, and angry. It is sad, serious, and scurrilous to harm children.
My column dealing with evolution was published on many websites, Canada Free Press
being one, and they received some incoming flack for it. I seldom read comments and never answer them unless they are sent to me. I have noticed for more than 40 years that when my critics can’t refute me they attack me. When I am called a bigot or hater, I sit back and smile knowing I have won the debate. After all, if my opponents had an answer they would use it. Are they too dumb to know this or do they think we are too dumb to know it?
One critic wrote to the Canada Free Press
what he thought was a terrific answer to my column; however, he did not answer my column. He took some shots but he fired blanks. He did not even try respond to the column! He wrote about a “HUGE conspiracy” but I never said or implied a conspiracy as the driving force of evolution. Evolution is simply the result of unbelievers trying to justify their unbelief and rejection of God. He then suggested that I was obviously wrong since the “mainstream national church councils” support science and evolution. Therefore, I must be in conflict with “their versions of Christianity.” Finally, there
he got it right. I have been a critic of mainline denominations for more than 40 years because of their heresy and leftist leanings and if anyone will stand still long enough I can provide reams of information to support my opposition.
My critic sarcastically suggested that I submit my evolutionary research to Oslo “to collect my Nobel Prize.” This critic doesn’t know that one does not recommend himself for the Nobel Prize and Oslo does not award the Nobel Prize for Literature! Sweden does! Oslo only awards the Peace Prize.
Then he said that he would let all the universities and peer review journals know that I know more about evolution than they do. Now, that suggestion may be worthwhile. Finally, he promised to inform the Supreme Court that their rulings are invalid and that I have “overturned all those rulings.” Another good idea. After all, the Supreme Court ruled that Dred Scott and other Blacks were not citizens and had no right to sue. The Court also ruled that abortion rights were in the Constitution and that same-sex marriage was acceptable although we know it is condemned by God.
I will not deal with my critic’s grammatical errors since he probably hasn’t finished high school yet.
Another critic from Canada Free Press
suggested my evolution column was a “pile of BS” meaning, I suppose, Brilliant Suggestions. He said that “Species do not pop out” from nowhere but then he must not be familiar with the Schindewolf-Goldschmidt-Gould “hopeful monster” theory where a dinosaur egg hatches a bird, “the first bird in the whole world.” I will forgive my critic for not having any idea what I am referring to but suffice it to say that a few world-famous scientists supported that silly theory including Stephen Jay Gould! Other scientists are still laughing at their desperation.
By the way, the above quoted book The Wonderful Egg,
with the silly egg story, is recommended by American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Council on Education, and the Association for Childhood Education International! Now, I suppose I should say that those educators and scientists are only misguided souls but they are inept, incompetent, irresponsible, and even immoral (meaning debauched, decadent, depraved, dishonest, dissipated, and dissolute) zealots. Here, I suppose I am a little excessive in name-calling but it’s difficult to know when to stop.
He went on to say that evolutionists “do not believe everything came from nothing.” In The God Haters
and my new Evolution: Fact, Fraud, or Faith?
(to be published in a few weeks by Barbwire Books) I easily documented many major scientists who take that position. This guy doesn’t even know what the people he is defending actually teach! That is super dumb.
However, my critic was right and I was wrong! I said that the media were the most overpaid people west of Hollywood when it should have been “east” of Hollywood. I should have caught that and my editor should have and I would fire her but she works cheap and is my beloved wife.
My editor keeps me from being more pugnacious but I don’t want anyone to wonder what I am saying or what my position is. I am in a war and will someday give an account to my Commander-in-Chief as to how I waged that war. I will sit down to discuss, deliberate, and debate calmly and kindly any subject (of which I am knowledgeable) with anyone; but if it is an abortionist who wants to kill babies or evolutionists who corrupt young minds, or new atheists who want to take from me the right to tell children (mine and others) that Hell is real and Christ is the only way of salvation then I will be in my war mode. Others can take whatever approach they want but then I don’t give an account for them.
Only myself, for which I thank God!
