He's read the Bible

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, October 27, 2005

In Wednesday's paper, Marlin Bricker states that "it is obvious" that Wade Rogers hasn't read the Bible or Darwin, "word for word, beginning to end."

I happen to know Mr. Rogers well, as he crews for me and we've spent a lot of time on Juneau waters. He is not only a great sailor, but he is a great shipmate. We've had some extended conversations about the Bible and the history of Christianity. Wade Rogers has a degree in theology and his knowledge of the Bible, both the version you and I read and the original untranslated text, is extensive. He is also quite familiar with Darwin.

I suggest that Mr. Bricker check his facts before launching his assaults.
