By popular demand, and in hopes of even better comments than it recieved on the Daily Tar Heel’s website here, I give you the most commented, the most read letter to the editor in recent weeks:
TO THE EDITOR:
The Young Democrats sponsored a “Prop 8 Musical” that debuted in the Pit on Wednesday.
In doing so, the Young Democrats have shown their antagonism toward religion and have made it very uncomfortable for Christians to affiliate with their organization.
The play mocks Christianity and the Lord Jesus Christ in a way that is inappropriate and does not further productive discussion or thinking. For example, in their infinite wisdom, the Young Democrats have sponsored a play that compared the Mosaic Law regarding whether Jews should eat shell fish to the sins of fornication and sodomy as they relate to Christian morality.
Christians are accused of “picking and choosing” what biblical passages they believe. Brilliant!
Here’s the thing, about 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ came and abolished the law through the cross and now the righteousness of God is manifested by way of faith in Jesus Christ, not in what you eat. And just, oh, by the way, fornication and homosexuality are considered to be morally wrong according to the New Testament writers; eating shell fish is not.
If this play had treated any other religion the way it treated Christianity, there would be riots by the same arrogant bunch that put on this moronic musical.
Before the Young Democrats argue against a tradition central to a coherent society, perhaps they ought to first understand what they are talking about.
Having said that, it is necessary the Young Democrats repudiate religious folk, seeing as heaven ain’t big enough for both Chairman Obama and God.
Justin L. Crowder
To be clear, and to ease the minds of my editors and fellow staff writers, the last line is meant as a joke with reference to the idea that Obama is treated as a messiah or a savior.
