Methodists, like others, have history of bloodguilt

June 6, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The Methodist church was on the radio the other day talking about their conference and wonderful worship services. What do we know about their history? It’s important to remember Jesus’ words that “by their fruits you will recognize them” to be able to authenticate his true followers. Does this sound reasonable?

Thank you so much for printing Mr. Tom Hyland’s observations of Donald Trump’s meeting in Albuquerque on May 25. This gave those of us who were unable to go a much better picture of the troublemakers, as well as Mr. Trump himself. We can much better...

Focus on his speech, not his attendance

June 4, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

There has been much talk of Congressman Steve Pearce’s attendance at the LULAC forum this past weekend. I personally was at the dinner and heard the congressman speak. I sincerely appreciate the congressman’s remarks during his speech — however,...

God made him a man, so a man he must be

A recent letter to the editor (“Article puts face on transgender issues”) of May 22 was discussing LGBT issues as mentioned in Lisa Dunlap’s front page article in the May 17 RDR. I noticed that the signers of the letter all had “Rev.” in front of...

Trump is a bully when he doesn’t get his way

June 1, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

It is my opinion, Donald Trump’s remarks against the Republican Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico on May 24 reveal a very deep disconnect in his understanding of the world around him; he is, and I suspect always has been, an out-of-control bully, the type...

LULAC forum shifted to ‘no-show’ Pearce

May 31, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

The Roswell Record’s account of the LULAC forum was atrocious. Lisa Dunlap’s article was stunning in that its lead subject and main content was not about: “Candidates address LULAC convention,” and not about what happened there or what was said. It...

Bathroom controversy used as political excuse

May 31, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

This letter is in regards to the “bathroom” controversy. God made people different. He made a man and a woman. Who on Earth has the right to redefine God’s creation? And who has the authority to say that either sex can use a bathroom specifically stated...

Economic systems aren’t that pure

May 28, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Mr. William Dawe’s letter to the editor (May 27) clearly illustrates the current political crisis in our country. That crisis is being precipitated by the inability of some to recognize and understand the nuances of power and how they influence our basic...
