Letter to the editor: New PC gender mandates


The New York Post and the Associated Press reported recently that Oregon will become the first state to allow residents to mark their gender as “not specified” on applications for drivers’ licenses, learner permits and identity cards.  Drivers will mark “X” instead the customary M for male or F for female. Oregon’s Department of Motor […]

Letter to the editor: Climate: usual suspects?


The current issue of the National Geographic has some interesting reading on the melting of the Antarctic ice. Regardless of the cause, it is melting by the cubic mile. In all the generations we have known about Antarctic ice, it is melting way faster than ever. The Geographic predicts that in seventy years, the melting […]

Letter to the editor: The Islamization of America is an ever-growing threat


Shenendehowa High School in upstate New York; a school campus in Brooklyn, New York; Chatham Middle School in Chatham, New Jersey; Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas; public schools in Minnesota and Michigan – these and other schools nationwide are granting concessions to Islamic teaching, thereby making this nation fall prey to this ideology. Our […]

Letter to the editor: A gun is useless if you don’t have it


“Now there was no smith found in Israel: for the Philistines said, ‘Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears. So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people . . .’” (I Samuel 13:19, 22) See, the […]

Letter to the editor: Why would you vote for a Democrat?


What is truth? This was, of course, a question from Pilot – the governor who judged Jesus Christ. As repeated history keeps telling us, too many do not hear the answer given by Christ: “Hear my words.” Today, the national media, the Democrats (or Pravda as Russia called their propaganda ministry), etc., seem to feel […]

Letter to the editor: Definition of civil disobedience?


Many readers will no doubt have heard of the despicable Shakespeare in the Park play, put on by New York City’s Public Theater, that depicts Donald Trump getting assassinated (in an “edgy” reframing of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar). There have been a couple of incidents recently with protesters rushing the stage and otherwise disrupting this play […]

Letter to the editor: United Methodists and homosexuality


The United Methodist News Service reports the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC) commissioned an openly transgender individual as a provisional deacon on June 4, 2017. The United Methodist Church has ordained homosexual clergy before.  However, the Rev. M. Barclay is the first openly “non-binary trans person” to become a United Methodist […]

Letter to the editor: Our Christian origins


God’s Word has been under attack for years in America and much longer worldwide.  But man will never be able to eradicate it.  Men do lead most humans down the “broad…way” that leads to destruction.  Jesus Christ, who is, “the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” said, few (a small percentage) will follow the “narrow…way” […]

Letter to the editor: Methodists battle homosexual issues


The Rev. Karen Oliveto is the pastor of a United Methodist Church (UMC) in Colorado.  However, she is also a self-avowed practicing lesbian married to another lesbian – and she now has been consecrated as Bishop of the UMC Mountain Sky Area, which includes churches in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and Montana, as well as one […]
