Here's a letter that appeared in the local paper today:
Free people must practice restraint
I do not believe in an "Allah" who creates a medical cell of Muslim doctors and associates to kill people in London and Glasgow.
Nor do I believe in an immoral democratic lifestyle which ignores biblical teachings and rebels against a life of holiness under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
Freedom and liberty to practice a sinful life is the worst kind of slavery, in that it destroys and condemns our body and our soul to a godless eternity.
God created Earth, heavens, life and he does not want it to be wasted or destroyed.
Billy R. Mathis
Mathis actually says that "freedom...is...slavery." Who the hell knows what his definition of "a sinful life" is--I would bet being a liberal, a non-Christian, a free-thinker, an antiwar activist, a civil liberties advocate, or any combination of those would fit Mathis' definition.
The thing is, Mathis equates freedom and slavery without irony or any seeming knowing wink to "1984" or anything. This is beyond scary...
