My Letter Makes the Bee! Woooo Hooooo!!


Good way to start the new year with my letter actually getting printed this time....


Christoper G. Tasy's Dec. 27 Valley Voices piece is filled with such inaccuracies, misrepresentations and false premises as to render it more comedy sketch material than serious commentary.

Outright fabrications, such as the claim that the pope has been the world's moral conscience, are simply laughable. One need only look back to the pope's inaction during World War II to see the moral vacuum at the Vatican. Ghandi was a much better moral example than many popes.

Mr. Tasy also downplays the child-abuse scandal by claiming that the accused were less than 1% of the priesthood. What he ignores is that the real issue was the cover-up by church leaders, which allowed the abuse to continue unchecked in too many cases.

He asserts there are no legitimate ethical or moral arguments for abortion, birth control, homosexuals or women priests. Most thoughtful people would say there are arguments on both sides of these issues.

Finally, he compares Americans to children, with the Catholic church as our parent. What a crock! It is time for thinking people of all countries to move past the mental enslavement and real harm that Catholicism and other religious fictions have brought us to.

I saw your article in the paper this afternoon. You should be ashamed. If Jesus heard half of what you had written he'd roll over in his grave.

Mr. Eisinger:

Part of my regular prayer ritual is to pray for the conversion of souls who are apathetic or hostile to God's teachings, Son, and His church. You are now a part of that prayer.

Dear FresnoBeliever, there is only one God and he is Gozer the Traveler. He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

Jeez Jeff,
Should we all offer up a prayer to the Flying Spaghetti Monster on your behalf?

Supplication to the FSM is always a good thing!
