The writer of "Bible reflects sign of the times" (letter, Sept. 21) is so close when he writes: "You don’t have to believe in it ...," but then he veers wildly into fantasy land when he continues: "don’t ask us our opinions on something."

Ha! Ask, indeed. Who has ever had to ask a Christian about his opinion? No one. Ever. Christians wear their opinions on their sleeves: bumper stickers; fish magnets; 20-inch mag wheels with crosses (sweet!); cute little Bible quotes at the bottom of their e-mails; "amens" and "godblessyous" strewn haphazardly about; young Earth creationism taught in public schools.

The writer should get over his persecution complex. And if he’s going to pick and choose which rules to follow from the Bible, and which don’t apply anymore, he shouldn’t get upset when rational people call him on it.
