Cooper debates Bird who debated Cooper

I have to respond to being attacked by letter-writer Gerald Bird. Did he actually read what I wrote? I doubt it.

I never said what religion I was. I never said that James Dobson was my hero. I was born Catholic and will die Catholic.

Bird thinks society has just started going into the dumper in the “last few years”. Huh? He obviously has gone through life with blinders on.

My only point to all this was to say that since liberals took over schools and the mention of God was taken out 40 years ago, crime went way up, teen pregnancy, especially among minorities, went way up, drug use went way up, divorce went way up, and the black family was virtually destroyed.

This cost the taxpayers trillions of dollars and ruined millions of lives, and we’re still paying for it today.

Can someone name one good thing that happened to our society due to removing the mention of God from schools during that time?

However, to try to equate Ted Bundy’s murder spree to Bundy’s father being a religious fanatic shows how weak Bird’s position really is.
