Letter to the editor: Homosexuals risk their health

    

The Tulsa World ran a letter to the editor entitled, “Diocese (Catholic) not part of Tulsa community.” The writer was upset that Bishop Slattery stated, “No one can redefine marriage except God.” The writer, of course, challenged the bishop to cite his source.

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.

Editorial: Kudos to the Catholic Diocese

 

The Catholic Diocese of Tulsa said enough is enough and resigned its  membership in the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice because that leftist group helped with the recent “gay pride parade” in Tulsa.
