Dear Editor:

I call your attention to the following articles:

- Sept. 5, 2012, article by Heather Clark: "Democrats Remove 'God' From Party Platform, Add Support for Taxpayer-Funded Abortion-on-Demand"

- April 26, 2019, article by Dr. Susan Berry: "Satanic Temple Recognized as 'Church' with Tax-Exempt Status"

- June 20, 2019, AP article "Alaska government meeting opens with 'Hail Satan' prayer"

- Sept. 3 article by R. Susan Berry: "Harvard Groups: Atheist Head 'Chaplain' Will Have 'No Influence' on Religious Life."

My question to all God-fearing Christians: Do you see a trend here? Do you believe Christ was tempted by Satan?

The subject of my letter is the Sept. 24 page A6 NT article: "Boy Scouts' bankruptcy creates rift with religious partners."

I applaud the NT for printing this AP article, which subtly exposes the continuing march toward efforts to destroy the BSA and subsequently the end game of the destruction of all Christian morality in our society.

This is one of the planned efforts to continue to destroy all organizations contributing to any biblical teaching of God's design of the family and a free society of Christian male leadership.

I feel it started with the litigation against the Catholic Church for clerical sexual abuse in the 1980s and '90s.

I in no way condone any of this alleged abuse to be tolerated. However, one has to wonder where the financing originated to find the victims and funds to litigate the dispute. It's my guess it's the same source of financing to destroy the BSA and attempt to inflict catastrophic economic damage to the Catholic Church and now all Protestant churches supporting the BSA.

Considering the fact the BSA has depended almost entirely on support from Christian churches for decades, it defies logic to not be suspicious regarding the possibility anti-Christian (Satanic) forces using our culture and courts to destroy the Christian religion.

I further believe the Democrat Party is a satanic organization by its undying support for the killing of the unborn and its open denunciation of our nation's God.

Further evidence of this is the difference between a pro-life Republican president who is proud of his faith by publically holding a Bible in front of a church vs. a corrupt Democrat president who openly defies Christian doctrine by his steadfast support of abortion and complicity in corruption by his son.
