To Whom It May Concern
St. Peter's Basilica
Having woken up bleary-eyed to the adjusted time the United States euphemistically calls "Daylight Savings Time," I really have to question why the Holy Mother Church has not used her influence to challenge this policy. I trust the Church to challenge the creeping edges of the culture of death, and this is indeed an example of that.
I took a theology class in college, and as my professor puzzlingly said to me, I now know enough theology to be seriously dangerous. I take that to mean I am fit to speak for the Church in times of danger. This, your Holiness, is such a time. I make bold to speak the divine truth against Daylight Savings Time, especially when presented early in the abhorrent month of March.
As we know, the dating of time is a human creation, for God is beyond time. If time is a human construct, then it is open to the twistedness of original sin. Although time as we date it is neutral, daylight savings time is clearly against God's will.
- After all, in Gen 1:5: "God called the light day, and the darkness night." DST is an idolatrous human attempt to improve upon God, and extend the light for specious reasons.
- "In the night I remember you" (Psalm 119:56): indeed, but how can we do that when we're staring like crack addicts at the sunlight at 8pm?
- And "In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice, in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait with expectation." (Psalm 5:3) Well, how do I know when it is morning when the sun isn't coming up? See how this perverts God's natural order and goodness?
I know it is out of fashion to say "error has no rights," but if there was ever a case for it, here it is. I beg you to speak out against the cruelty and confusion of early Daylight Savings Time. I trust that it is a matter of both reason and faith and observable by natural law. Thank you.
In weariness and Christian love,
