Last theology letter quotes the scripture

September 20, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This will be my last letter on theology for the timebeing. I am deferring to the editor, who told us in his Sept. 11 column he is weary of the arguments about religion. In this letter, I will discuss the deity of Jesus Christ. There are many more issues...

Fine dining near air center overlooked

September 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The editorial (published Aug. 28) had a glaring misconception, which is not your fault, but an indication of the vast well of ignorance from which Mr. Mulcahy operates. What he overlooked in his presentation is that there is already a fine, first class...

‘Well regulated militia’ excluded

September 14, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

Pastor (Bobby) Barnett, thank you for mentioning me in your recent letter (published Sept. 9). It’s a pleasure to meet a gentleman of faith and erudition. I was hoping we could discuss the Second Amendment. The literal, ratified text reads, “A well...
