Quotations from Professor Robert George (January issue) seem to show a great disdain for evolutionary biology and biblical scholarship, suggesting that Professor George has little knowledge or understanding of those fields.

The professor also seems to sneer at those who work against racism, poverty, discrimination because of sexual orientation, and environmental degradation, slyly ridiculing them as “woke.”

In Christianity, love, compassion, and respect for people different from oneself are very important. Assuming that George is a Christian, he and other Christian conservatives should remember that being a follower of Jesus does not just mean being a member of a church. It means following Jesus’ teachings.
