LETTER: We should all be so proud

Published 9:35 am Thursday, July 2, 2009

I was saddened when Al Franken was finally declared the winner of Minnesota’s Senate seat by the Minnesota Supreme Court because of his mockery of Christianity. In his book, “Why Not Me?” that is available at the Austin Public Library, he writes of his fictional rise as the first Jewish president of the United States. He tells that he and his brother made over 100 digs in the Holy Land and discovered the complete skeleton of Jesus still nailed to the cross.  He would like to put it on display in the future in his Presidential Library when they get an exhibition space designed and built. “Until then he’s very comfortable in a box down in our basement near the geothermal power station.” He also mentions that small pieces of Jesus’ skeleton are available in their gift shop.

This is just one example of his mockery of Christians in his various writings, radio shows, etc. … I guess he thought he was really being hilarious. As a Christian, it is absolutely disgusting to me. Just think: This man is representing all of us Minnesotans in the Senate of the United States. We can all be so proud.
