Letters to the Editor

Letter to the editor: Vouchers are the answer for education


Want to find out the truth? Ask a retired teacher who has no fear of the Teachers’ Union from speaking out. In addition to another career, I taught school for eight years and substituted, on and off for five years. Government (public) schools have been on life support for years, and we are cheating our […]

Letter to the editor: Abortion is the No. 1 killer


To protect U.S. citizens, billions of taxpayer dollars are spent through government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Centers for Disease Control (CDC),; National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); etc. And yet, our government is not doing one thing to eliminate the number […]

Letter to the editor: Joe Newhouse is the true conservative


On August 23, Republicans of State Senate District 25 will once go again to the polls to pick their candidate for the November general election. I unsuccessfully ran for this seat, but did come to learn that significant differences exist between the two remaining candidates.  One candidate in my opinion is a true conservative. The […]

Letter to the editor: Revelation lesson


I attended First Methodist Church on Sunday morning, July 31, with my friend, former Tulsa District Attorney Tim Harris. Tim invited me to attend his Sunday School class where Dale Dyer was teaching on Revelation. Dyer gave a brief review of the first 11 chapters of Revelation and then launched into Chapter 12-14. That is […]

A word to caregivers…


My precious Mother stepped into eternity at 3:35 p.m. July 26. I wanted to write the Tulsa Beacon in honor of her and also to share my experience as a caregiver. When my Mother’s long-term care insurance expired, I had a choice to make. I could either keep her in a nursing home or bring […]

Letter to the editor: Churches, what is America’s sin?


I heard a powerful sermon by a pastor in Texas about the evil in our country and how the majority of churches are not speaking out against it. As a Christian who loves God, I feel that I have to speak out against it. I was shocked by the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. […]

Letter to the editor: Missing a lesson in history


President Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and the rest of the Democrat Party: They want more, more and still more power to control the people. The federal courts under the Justice Department tell medical facilities with birthing services that they must provide death services, that is abortion. Medical service people cannot object to killing babies. […]

Letter to the editor: Putin is correct


I don’t know if it’s true or not, but Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, is alleged to have given this short speech to the Duma, (Russian Parliament) about the tensions with minorities in Russia: “In Russia, live like Russians. To live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, any minority, from anywhere, should speak […]

Letter to the editor: Gun rights and the U.S. Constitution


At first pass, it seems reasonable to deny gun ownership to any person who is listed on the government’s “Terror Watch List” or “No-Fly List.” But, you begin to wonder: “Who decides what names should go on these lists?  And, upon what evidence is this decision made?  And who corroborates this evidence.” We must not […]

Letter to the editor: Heaven and Earth


America continues to display the foolishness of man by trusting in man rather than God the Creator.  Many now foolishly claim that Science proved there is no God.  That of course, is man’s lie. Ironically, God’s truth is questioned by man, who God formed from “the dust of the ground.” According to the Word of […]
