← Open Letter to a victim of Ben Stein's lying propaganda

Chris Jackson's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by Chris Jackson

As one would expect, a kind, thoughtful and sensitive letter from RD. However, honourable as his sentiment may be, I cannot help but feel that it may fall on deaf ears. From the tone of the given excerpt, David J may have already made up his mind that all atheists, secularists and Evolutionary advocates are Jew-hating Nazis. If this were the case, the kindest words in the world would have held no sway.

It may be the post G & T blues hitting, but I feel distinctly pessimistic about the impact of this letter. Sad too, to know that this film is already having such a detrimental effect.

Shame.
