I read in the Star-Telegram that henceforth the YMCA would be renamed and identified as the "Y."
I have for some period of time been concerned about the silent and pernicious effects of secular humanism. These effects go beyond removing from the record any trace of Christianity. Most threatening is the fact that secular humanism will take from us God-given rights and substitute the governmental state as our creator and source of authority. It seems to me that renaming the YMCA is like building a mosque next to the 9-11 site. The only difference is subtlety.
Christians need to recognize that they are systematically being redirected to secular humanism and a totalitarian state.
I hate to break it to "Jerome R. Pikulinski," but it looks like the only entity behind re-branding the YMCA to simply the "Y" is....well, the YMCA. I suppose he's upset about their snazzy new logo (above) with its prominent initial.
As opposed to their older logo in which a big initial "Y" was nowhere to be...seen....oh, wait....
Guess he overlooks that the YMCA has been foreshortened to just "the Y" for...well, at least since 1967, when the old logo at left was unveiled.
Just like Jeremiah and the other right-wing nuts so well known to readers of this blog, this letter-writer is scared of non-existent shadows. In fact, he's so terrified that monolithic government entities and groups of (gasp!!) "secular humanists" who don't share his beliefs are going to force him into a terrifying anti-Jesus mold, he's doing his level best to make it sound like those groups are mandating the change to the "Y."
Carry that to its logical extreme, and it's like a fervent monarchist going apoplectic that Dairy Queen has truncated its marketing identity to "DQ."
And I can't begin to address the over-the-top nature of this reference:
