Letter to the editor: Pope didn’t quote the whole passage


As his charter plane left Columbia on Sunday and flew over some of the hurricane devastated areas, Pope Francis was asked about “man-made climate change.”  He sharply criticized climate change doubters, and said, “Those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them.  They speak very clearly.”  Francis said scientists have also clearly […]

Letter to the editor: Our spiritual heritage


Consider the situation at the time of the Solemn Assembly called by the Prophet Joel. The people of Israel were guilty of flagrant, unconfessed sin. The sin had not been put away, either. God visited them with a remedial judgment – an overwhelming invasion of locusts, a fierce drought, fields ruined. The prophet issued orders: […]

Letter to the editor: Democrats’ Russian connection


Today, Pravda is promoted and used by the Democrats and Washington Post writers. The national press and Democrats seem to think it helps their cause and do not seem to care that it is harmful to the U.S. Government and our military. It also helps Russia.  But then, so too it helps the Democrats, they […]

Letter to the editor: America needs God more than ever


America needs God more than ever.  Ungodliness is actually the biggest problem in America.  America needs to return to the Living God of Abraham and live according to His just commandments.  Hate must be replaced by Godly love. The defeated Satan and his followers are still afflicting humanity in terrible ways.  Their goal is to […]

Letter to the editor: Highly educated Gist lacks wisdom


One of the advantages of being raised on a farm is what the children learn early in life.  We learned the difference between a bull and a cow; a hen and a rooster; a stud and a mare; a ram and a ewe and the list goes on and on.   Now we have people acting as if […]

Letter to the editor: Engle is incorrect about Gary Richardson


As a Republican and a supporter of Gary Richardson for Governor now as well in 2002, I read with great interest the article in the August 3, 2017 edition of the Tulsa Beacon, specifically as to what author, Richard Engle, who is an active supporter of Todd Lamb, had to say about Richardson’s candidacy for […]

Bruce Jenner is a 67-year-old, 6-2 man and a former (1976) Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete.  But Bruce Jenner announced in April 2015 that he is a transwoman. In an April 2015 interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce said he had dealt with gender dysphoria since a youth and that for all intents and purposes, “I’m a […]

Letter to the editor: Trump polls are wrong


When I see the Trump polls posted on the evening news I recognize some bias. Therefore, I started my own polling. I asked two men who shop at Bass Pro Shop if they liked Trump and received two yes votes.  I overheard two people at church express  their opinion of gun control – you got […]
