Letter to the editor: Tim Kaine predicts pro-abortion stance


The Democrat Party’s pick for vice president, Tim Kaine, says he believes the Roman Catholic Church may change its opposition to gay marriage.  He is a devout Roman Catholic, and he told the attendees at a Human Rights Campaign national dinner Saturday in Washington that he had changed his mind about gay marriage and that […]

Letter to the editor: $40m an hour interest


It has to be legal. We voted. See? Only it still stinks. A hundred years ago, our forefathers voted to ratify the Sixteenth Amendment. That made it legal, they said, for the government to lightly squeeze millionaires for a percent or two. Only that’s not what the amendment said. And nobody now knows what they […]

Letter to the editor: Wake up call for America to repent


It has been said that this election of 2016 is the most important election ever. This is true. America has long been engaged in a war from within to depose God, our Judeo-Christian roots and biblical worldview as the foundation for our nation’s morals and virtues. Actively engaged and informed Christians (clergy and congregants) have […]

Letter to the editor: Right to Farm’ on the ballot


On November 8, our state ballot will be packed with questions we must vote on. One state question is of particular importance to rural Oklahoma farmers and cattle ranchers – State Question 777.

Letter to the editor: Hillary not fit as commander


We do not need an “Aunt Hillary.” After all, we now have an “Uncle Obama.” The “Uncle Tomism” label comes from an 1852 novel by Harriet Beacher Stowe.

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 […]
