Not surprised Democrats are “denying God’s omnipotence”
To the Editor:
While it is certainly not unusual to pick up the newspaper and find Mrs. Murray hurling insults at Congressman Broun, I must say that I was surprised at the tone of Mrs. Murray’s latest article. I guess coming from the political party that will “boo” God on a national stage, nothing from the Democrats should really surprise me.
When Jesus performed his first miracle and turned water into wine, what Mrs. Murray apparently fails to recognize, is that the world’s finest sommelier would not have been able to ascertain that the wine was only minutes old. If God were to “miracle” a fully mature oak tree in my front yard, the world’s best arborist would be willing to testify under oath that the tree was a hundred or more years old. To deny that God could have created the world in six (literal) days, yet make the world appear much older to all types of scientist, is to literally deny God’s omnipotence. Or perhaps it is to deny His very existence.
To ridicule Dr. Broun for his beliefs is shameful. To claim that Congressman Broun (an accomplished physician) is someone that would “deny basic science” is ignorant. To then attempt to make some correlation (if one can even call Mrs. Murray’s “leap” a correlation) between Dr. Broun’s beliefs/statements and the U.S. student rankings in math and science is so ridiculous and without any basis, that it is not worth a retort.
