Dear Mr. Editor:
I find myself in hearty agreement with the August 29th letter to the editor by Mildred Gleason on the evil the teaching of evolution brings to our classrooms. But I wonder if she knows how many other anti-God lies are taught in our schools.
As I write, teachers are teaching our children such unbiblical falsehoods as the "fact" that the world is round and doesn't have even one of the four corners the Bible describes. Or that the Earth goes around the sun instead of the readily apparent fact that the opposite happens every day. Teachers continue to encourage reading in a dangerous world where swear words and bizzare anti-God texts are ubiquitous. Even "satire," a form of lying, is taught in reading classes, to the exclusion of great works of truth such as Limbaugh's The Way Things Ought to Be.
Our children are being educated in opposition to traditional family values. The behavior of the daughter of a friend well illustrates my point. When she saw a spider creeping across the floor, she scooped it up and released it outside. Where could she have learned this odd behavior? In school, of course, where a teacher instructed her that bugs shouldn't be stomped. But if God hadn't intended us to stomp bugs, why did He make them so funny looking?
To restore our education system, we need to replace the questioning ways of science with teachings from the Bible. This is essential for the reassurance of our omnipotent God.
