Huckleberries Online

Another rant of sorts

One of my jobs as Hot Potatoes gatekeeper is to catch urban legends. Two readers have sent in a column purportedly by Paul Harvey that denounces the constant attacks on the Christian faith in America. Actually, the writer of the column probably is Nick Gholson of the Wichita newspaper. Nonetheless, it's a powerful column, beginning:

I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.

I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his theory of evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game.

You can read all of it here.


DFO: Pass it around but remember to give credit to Gholson, if possible.
