Letters To The Editor

Letter cited

To the Journal editor: Mr. Anderson, you are inaccurate in accusing me that I “ignore all the other ways innocent and vulnerable life is taken or harmed (and) is not in keeping with being a Christian.” I am active in many ministries beyond “merely” abortion, but I believe the death of ...

Leave planet livable

Will Trump run?

To the Journal editor: It is my expectation that President Trump is going to do all of us a big favor and decide some time in early-to-mid-2020 not to run for re-election partly because of a likely slow-down in the economy. When that happens, I hope that the Republicans will nominate ...

God’s country cited

To the Journal editor: I recently read a book called “Cemeteries of the Stars.” It was about when and how they died and where they were buried. Lots of them had money, fame and large homes, etc. Also, a lot of them died rather young from bad habits, smoking, alcohol and drugs. Seems ...

Multi-faceted issue

To the Journal editor: In D. Michael Carriere’s recent letter to the editor, he agrees with the assertion in my earlier op-ed that racism is an evil that should be called out by people of all faiths. Michael then advocates from a Biblical point of view that the primary focus of the pro-life ...

Impeach Trump now

To the Journal editor: It’s time for Congress to begin a formal impeachment inquiry. I can arrive at no other conclusion after Robert Mueller’s testimony to Congress. Mueller did his job. Now it’s on Congress to do theirs. Trump may lie, but the evidence does not, and Mueller found ...

Pick Mother Earth, Democrats

To the Journal editor: Those of us who live in the Upper Peninsula, no matter our political leanings, care about the Great Lakes. The latest move by the EPA is to approve a proposed large, open-pit ore mine in the U.P. near the Menominee River in spite of objections from Michigan regulators ...

African Americans treated unfairly

To the Journal editor: What is the best way to deal with a 3rd grade playground bully, who talks like a drunk on a bar stool, screaming at the TV? You can either ignore him or snap a number 9 up along side his right ear. For those of you who think I am talking about something measured in ...

There are many questions about Trump

To the Journal editor: There are a lot of voters who are wary of the president’s policies. They don’t hate him but do not feel he is really doing us a lot of good. As to the unemployment of Hispanic and African Americans, do you know any? Families you invite to your house? I do, and ...
