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 […]

Editorial: Good news is state government isn’t growing under new budget

 

The news concerning the new state budget is good and bad. The good news is that the budget was cut by one percent. When was the last time that the state spending didn’t go up? The $611 million predicted budget shortfall forced legislators and agency heads to prioritize spending and that’s good. Forty-nine agencies were […]

Editorial: Little boys who want to be girls will be allowed in the Girl Scouts

 

The Girl Scouts of America now endorse transgender status for children. That’s right. A new GSA policy states that the organization – historically reserved for membership by girls – will now force its chapters to accept little boys who want to act like they are girls. The GSA website states, “If the child is recognized […]

Editorial: Boy Scouts’ leader says that homosexual leaders inevitable

 

The Boy Scouts of America are one step away from allowing homosexual men to take young boys into the woods on camping trips. That is a prescription for disaster. BSA President Robert Gates said is it inevitable that the Boy Scouts will drop their ban on openly homosexual leaders. BSA recently ended decades of tradition […]

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 […]

Letter to the editor: Farming rules

    

A draft rule issued by USDA aims to define what it means to be ‘actively engaged’ in farming. The proposed rule makes some important changes, but those improvements are immediately undermined by two new loopholes introduced in the rule. The draft rule, somewhat unabashedly, only applies to farms that are large enough to “require” quadruple […]

Editorial: Why a taxpayer funded museum?

 

State Senate Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa, pushed for the state to fund the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture in Tulsa. His SB839 provides a $25,000,000.00 bond issue to build the OKPOP to be operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society. Bingman promises that if the state provided the bond money, no operating money would be […]

Editorial: Keystone Chevy and homosexuality

 

Add Keystone Chevrolet to the Tulsa businesses promoting homosexuality. Keystone Chevrolet is a “proud sponsor” of the June 7 2015 Tulsa Rainbow Run. The dealership has ponied up $1,000-2,500 to affiliate with racing homosexuals. Keystone Chevrolet wants Tulsans to “find new roads.” Apparently, that includes men with men and women with women. AtoZ Medical is […]

Editorial: Liberal World blasts Bridenstine

 

The Tulsa World is having a harder time disguising its hatred for Republicans. The liberal newspaper is on a mission to embarrass every Tulsa County elected official plus U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine. Incidents in which white officers shoot black suspects are being reported all over the nation and rioting usually ensues. It did not in […]
