Question the suppositions

Dear Editor,

I trust you will let me respond to the free-swinging Dan Jenkins, seeing as how he named me.

I give him his due: I’m sure that these priests and mullahs think rigorously, and that they come to the conclusions which their abilities and suppositions allow them. Different people with different suppositions may come to different conclusions.

Question the suppositions, and that includes the Bible. If that book is not absolutely true, then whatever convoluted reasonings that follow from it, and that includes the answers to Jenkins’ quiz, may be exercises in sophistry. How many cherubs can raft the Shoshone Rapids on a paper clip?

Yee-haw for variety, and I avoid like Ebola those who suggest there is a monopoly on truth.

This is all so tedious, but I can’t let it pass: I am surprised that Jenkins would unconditionally proffer priests as exemplars of carnal wisdom and knowledge. I find pedophilia and conditions leading to it to be unnatural, and I urge folks to seek sexual counsel elsewhere.

And the truth shall set you free …
