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 […]

Letter to the editor: How these cases were once handled

    

No one needs to be told the tragedy of Officer Betty Shelby being charged with manslaughter for the shooting of a man with a lengthy felony record. The only thing I can add to the narrative is that I, as an eyewitness to similar proceedings in the early-to mid-seventies, can tell you how that type […]

Letter to the editor: Trump and Russian hacking myth

    

President Trump’s proven tweets were once again vindicated today. The most frivolous contention from the shortsighted liberals is the odd claim of Russian hacking of the election. Honestly it would be far better sensationalism if the fake news would just come all the way out and say it was Edward Snowden who hacked the election. […]

Editorial: Liberal judges support abortion

 

Liberal, activist judges continue to enact new laws to make it easier to kill unborn babies in America. In April, U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs ruled Missouri’s laws setting health and safety standards for abortion clinics are probably “unconstitutional.” Sachs quoted the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which said states cannot […]

Church should be a place where people learn what is right from wrong and are encouraged to make good choices. A United Methodist Church in the Denver area is struggling with choosing the right path for their leadership. Bishop Karen Oliveto has a civil marriage to another woman that violates church law that bars clergy […]

Letter to the editor: Will we have a second Civil War?

    

Our nation is locked once again in a Civil War. This time the two sides are not called the North and the South or the Union and the Confederacy. They are called by several names: the Progressives and the Conservatives or the Liberals and Conservatives or maybe just the Left and the Right. The Democrat […]

Letter to the editor: Lord: My ‘silent plea’

    

Now I sit me down in school, Where praying is against the rule. For this great nation under God, Finds mention of Him very odd. If scripture now the class recites, It violates the Bill of Rights. And anytime my head I bow, Becomes a federal matter now. Hair can be purple, orange or green, […]

Letter to the editor: Letter to the President

    

Every Christian needs to send this reminder to President Donald Trump: Dear Mr. President, You promised to stop the flow of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. You promised to rescind the Johnson Amendment in order to give church pastors more freedom to speak from the pulpit. You promised to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel […]

Letter to the editor: Human trafficking

    

I am writing to express my concern over an issue that is both important and appalling, yet almost never talked about – human trafficking. It is a widespread, worldwide issue that has even taken root in our own country but I have not heard one peep about it from any news outlet. As I was […]
