My favorite letter writer, Bill Denny, is now worried about pagan origins.

He wrote: “Evolution is an atheistic story of origins. This is not science, this is a pagan story of origins.”

I wonder if he’s equally worried about the pagan origins of Christmas and Easter.

Does he realize that they were heavily influenced by pagan traditions?

The next time you celebrate Easter or Christmas, be sure to take a moment and thank a pagan.
