Is Geary Higgins Really This Religious???
Realloudoun does it again. Instead of finding someone in his huge district to serve as his representative on the Library Board, Geary Higgins instead picks Jackquelyn Veith, an out of district administrator at Patrick Henry College, which mandates that every thing you ever need to know is found in The Bible. As Realloudoun states :
Ms. Veith’s spouse, by the way, also works at Patrick Henry, as provost and a professor of literature, though Professor Veith has an interesting view about literature: he is the author of a book which asserts that “we need nothing else” than the Bible and which “examines not only the sufficiency of God’s Word, but also the flawed thinking of those who try to add to or detract from it,” according to the publisher’s description.
That would certainly help the library’s budget problems: Just buy ONE book!
I’m not sure why Higgins wouldn’t have mentioned all these connections about his Library Board appointee in his newsletter. After all, he has used his newsletter in the past to advertise a “CEO Job Opening at Pro-Life Organization“, and his most recent newsletter talks about “a scene depicting Christ’s birth” in regard to the new courthouse displays (helpfully designed by those Patrick Henry College folks).
Is Higgins really this religious??? He’s never seemed that way to me. He couldn’t just be pandering, could he??? Or maybe someone else is really in charge in that office since Higgins isn’t around much.
UPDATE: To further illustrate the last sentence in this post, Higgins was absent for the vote to approve his pick from Janet Clarke’s district, which is where PHC resides as well. Maybe he should just officially turn over his vote to Janet Clarke, subject to approval by Mike Farris, of course.
