I wish to respond to a letter by James Battles to a fairy tale in the Bible.

It is about real people and real places. Artifacts discovered that the writings were true. Jesus was a man who lived on Earth.

It is true that God punished the Earth with a flood and did away with Sodom and Gomorrah. The killing of the holy innocents was done by a man, King Herod. And men to this day for greed and power have committed mass murder and genocide. In the Middle East, the Balkans, Africa and the Far East regions on Earth, to name a few.

And what about abortions? The killing of innocent goes on and on. The tale has lasted over 2,000 years. God is the alpha and the omega.

I, too, served my country in World War II and then the Korean War and take pride in my service to it. Peace be with you.
