Letter writer needs to be enlightened

August 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I have followed with interest Sandra Smith’s convoluted arguments in disparaging Christianity. I applaud Pastor Ryan’s and Russell Scott’s attempts at enlightening Ms. Smith. Both Pastor Ryan and Mr. Scott used Biblical and historic documentation in correcting her erroneous statements, while it appears that Ms. Smith’s documentation relied primarily...

Roswell could learn from Durango success

August 20, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

Several residents have asked about our comments on the Durango, Colorado, recreation center. This type of a facility could replace both the Yucca Center and the Cahoon Park Pool. It is very different than what the city has been discussing. The Durango...

Beware of religions in ‘Babylon the Great’

August 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Ryan Reynolds in Pastor Musings tries to convince us that Hitler only hated the Jews because of their race, not their religion. But it’s clear anti-semitism existed for centuries and it was easy to blame Jews for everything. As one reference mentioned:...

On fracking and the fossil fuel industry

August 18, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

“… what will it cost you to power your home without fossil fuels and is it worth it to save our planet?” The above is an excerpt from a recent RDR letter to the editor, a spine-chilling one at that. In other words, the author is saying that our...

Emphasis shouldn’t be on ‘Christendom’

August 17, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Is Ryan Reynolds (Pastor Musings) trying to convince Jews that the behavior of just a few should not reflect on true Christianity? He’s right that the many, many religions that overwhelmingly helped Hitler definitely did not represent Christianity in any...

Why we hate to love Trump

August 17, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

We are all fascinated by Donald Trump, whether we love him or hate him. Every hour of every day someone is talking about Trump on TV or the radio. My personal assessment is that no one understands why he does what he does or says what he says. There wasn’t...

Thanks for dedication with Senior Olympics

August 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Here we are, weeks have gone by, not a word as to the job that Sean Davis did the past few years managing the Senior Olympics. Needless to say, this year was an outstanding event. The best part, his family is well aware as to the job that he did. I do...

Biblical prophecies disputed in letters

August 16, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

In recent weeks, we have been seeing letters to the editor bashing Christianity. I cannot answer all the issues they raised in a letter of reasonable length. I will deal with the remaining questions in a later letter. We have seen a pattern of people avoiding...

Democrats have been bad for the economy

August 15, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Some Democrats shouted “black lives matter” at their convention when someone called for a moment of silence for a murdered policeman, and others yelled “no more war” as a Medal of Honor recipient spoke. No one tried to stop them, and our flag wasn’t...

The same old tired rhetoric about guns

August 15, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (1)

It’s presidential election season again, and the conservatives are trotting out the same tired old tropes. The Democrats are coming for our guns! This has been going on for at least 25 years. The reasoning seems to be that everybody better hurry up and buy...
