Compromise: you pray for me, I’ll pray for you | Letter to the Editor

  • Aug 28, 2015 at 11:00AM

I have never stated or implied that all in the U.S. are Christian; a majority are probably not (Biblically speaking). The term “Christian,” unless defined, can mean or be tagged to anything. Example: “The Holy Order of the Christian Slug” – an extreme example I know, but one that might catch on in the Northwest.

It’s a mistake to assume all in U.S. are Christians | Letter to the Editor

  • Aug 21, 2015 at 11:00AM

If I remember my Sunday School correctly and something you seem to want to cherry pick, is that “pesky” 11th Commandment. Also that annoying speaking for God thing being outside the historical and Biblical definition of Christianity. I would also remind you of our fifth-grade history lesson about the irritating First Amendment of the Bill Of Rights which affords Americans to worship or not the way they see fit.

Takes issue with column in support of gay marriage | Letter to the Editor

  • Aug 14, 2015 at 11:00AM

Culture war’s come to the Plateau. Perhaps a more appropriate title would be “societies definition of marriage is changing.” Jesus made this clear in his discourse on marriage and divorce. “In the beginning,” he says, man and women – male and female. I have a strong suspicion Mr. Still has read too much Rob Bell and not enough Jesus Christ.

If governor thinks his idea is sound, let people decide | Letter to the Editor

The legislature struggled making decisions in a timely manner thereby requiring multiple sessions. Amazingly, they didn’t suffer too much angst over their 11 percent pay increase while struggling to raise the teachers’ pay; new teachers would gladly work for the $40,000-plus the legislators receive.

Wealth is created when government provides the proper conditions | Letter to the Editor

  • Aug 13, 2015 at 1:00PM

I was saddened to read the “almost amused” attack on Rich Elfers and his recent column on business and government. It was typical of the extreme conservative view that wealth is the end all and be all of this country or our existence. It was saddening to see a defense of child labor and 14- to 16-hour work days.
