THE EDITOR, Sir:
Was the article ('I'll chauffeur Gordon Robinson to spiritual truth', The Sunday Gleaner, January 13, 2013) published under Al Miller's signature, intended as a joke?
As I read line after line of blatant, unblushing lies and increasingly demented delusions (e.g., the Bible's "accounts are factual; scientifically supported; historically true"), I began to wonder whether I had accidentally strayed into a parallel universe, where black is white, up is down, and left is right.
But it is clearly Al Miller who resides in this parallel universe, where scientists apparently don't know what is "scientifically proven" (though Al Miller does), and historians don't know what is "historically true" (but Al Miller does).
Al Miller is the typical example of a certain kind of religious person who feels that he only has to state something firmly and with conviction for it to become true; till he can no longer distinguish between truth and falsehood.
As for the claim that people like himself are "the primary carriers of Christ's mind in the world", please don't make me laugh. He and his ilk are all self-appointed, and however much he may desire Mr Robinson "and all men" to be "guided" by him, let me speak for Mr Robinson and for myself, for the faithful of other religions, for agnostics and atheists, and tell him that it's not going to happen any time, so he can stop holding his breath.
If this is the kind of rubbish that our young people are being regularly exposed to, we have a much greater problem for our Government to address than either crime or indebtedness: the problem of the brainwashing of an entire population.
