Letter to the editor: Homosexual flag is offensive


Is it OK to be offended by a flag? Should we remove all flags that remind someone of something they consider wrong, hurtful, dangerous or offensive? If yes:  Then we are offended by the homosexual (rainbow) flag.  It reminds us of over 1,200,000 people in the United States who have AIDS.  Those deceived by the […]

Letter to the editor: GOP should denounce Trump


Does Donald Trump’s history of running for president – considering he ran in 1988, 2000, 2004, and 2012 and now in 2016 – strike any Republicans as odd? In 1988, George H. W. Bush ran for president. In 2000, George W. Bush ran. In 2004, George W. Bush ran for re-election. In 2012, Barack Obama, […]

The purpose of this Catechism is to remind Americans (individuals, families, classes) of the rich Godly heritage in the document we celebrate each July 4th. A Catechism on the Declaration of Independence From Webster’s 1828 Dictionary CATECHISM, n. A form of instruction by means of questions and answers, particularly in the principles of religion*.

Letter to the editor: American heritage in the Magna Carta


The United States of America is the greatest nation, with the most individual freedom and prosperity, the world has ever seen. An event contributing to the development of our incredible constitutional republic happened 800 years ago in June. One of my ancestors (and perhaps yours) was among the English landowners who compelled King John at […]

Letter to the editor: Americans need to pray and repent


One of the most exciting trends currently is that there is a growing conviction that we cannot fix ourselves. While some may be discouraged with that fact, it is encouraging because that means that some of us Americans are learning moment by moment that God alone is the answer and every crisis we face nationally […]

Letter to the editor: Who needs water? Tulsa or Memphis?


For several years, we have heard from people that we need to do some kind of “river development.” About 10 or 12 years ago, there was a faction that wanted what they called “The Channels” to be built. These were man-made islands in the river with hotels, apartments, office buildings, shopping, etc.  – an Atlantic […]

Letter to the editor: Defending the Duggars


I encourage you to speak out in support of Josh Duggar and the entire Duggar family. As a fourteen-year-old boy, Josh let his raging hormonal curiosity about the opposite sex lead him into improper exploration.  What he did was wrong. Most fourteen-year-old boys are able to keep those hormonal urges in-check.  They think about those […]

Letter to the editor: A national revival


In the June 4th Tulsa Beacon, a story on the Taking Back America Conference was printed.  I believe in the goal of restoring King Jesus Christ, too.  But, if I could ask some questions of the presenters, I would start with this. Whose definition of civil justice do you accept? According to the title of […]

Letter to the editor: America is drifting away from God


America continues to defy God in many ways as it heads towards the inevitable judgment.  A recent example of this defiance happened when a young, educated, TV analyst, out of the blue, said, “I have the right to choose, the Supreme Court gave me that right.”  That unscripted statement did not trigger a reaction, much less a discussion. […]

Letter to the editor: Free trade?


And now, thru the magic of imagination, we take you into the very bowels of the United States Senate where a multi-nation “free trade” treaty is being debated. “ . . . and this treaty will make every nation prosperous beyond the dreams of avarice.” “How?” “Every nation will be able to sell its agricultural […]
