The emperor’s
New CloThes
D anish author Hans Christian Andersen told the story
of an emperor whose only interest in life was to dress
up in fashionable clothes. He kept changing his clothes
so that people could admire him. Two crooked weav-
ers approached the emperor, convinced him that they were very
fine tailors and could sew a lovely new suit for him. The crooked
weavers told the emperor
that the suit would be in-
visible only to those who
were stupid or unfit for
their positions or incom-
petent. The emperor was
very excited and ordered
the new tailors to begin
their work.

One day, the king
asked the prime minister
to go and see how much
work the two tailors had
done. He saw the two
men moving scissors in the air
but he could see no cloth! He
kept quiet for fear of being called
stupid and ignorant. Instead, he
praised the fabric and said it was
marvelous. Finally, the emperor’s new
clothes were ready. He could see
nothing but he too did not want
to appear stupid. He admired the
clothes and thanked the tailors. He
was encouraged to parade down the
street for all to see the new clothes.

The emperor paraded down the main
street. The people could only see a
naked emperor but no one admitted it
for fear of someone thinking of them as
being stupid. Political correctness ruled
the day.

They foolishly praised the invisible
fabric and the colors. The emperor was
very happy. At last, a child cried out,
“The emperor is naked!” Soon, every-
one began to murmur the same thing and
all began to shout, “The emperor is not
wearing anything!” People, it seems, will
believe anything if it is politically correct
even when in actuality they know it is
ridiculous—like EVOLUTION!
In the mid-19th century, Charles Dar-
win unleashed upon the world his utterly
laughable theory that man descended
from lower life gene migration to apes
and eventually arrived at modern man.

The idea was immediately accepted by
a society that desperately sought any
excuse that would discredit a Creative
God. In his day and up to our own, so-called
science and atheists shout at the beauty
of the “Emperor’s new clothes.” Like the
little boy in Hans Christian Andersen’s
story, ordinary folks, who see a creation
that could only be clearly designed in de-
tail by a Designer, shout: “The emperor
is naked!”
