As long as any politically useful segment of the American electorate believes that preachers can cure cancer with their bare hands or that intelligence is a product of education rather than a pr

All five of Oklahoma’s U.S. Congressmen voted on September 19 for House Resolution 3102, a measure that cuts $40 billion, over ten years, from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. They are Jim Bridenstine (Tulsa), Tom Cole (Moore), James Lankford (Oklahoma City), Frank Lucas (Cheyenne), and Markwayne Mullin (Muskogee) — all Republicans.

The problem is cost, not coverage


Commentary

Jonathan Small

My husband and I are volunteers, ushering regularly at the Civic Center for the past 7 years. We found the current production of Wicked to be among the top two shows we have seen in 7 years, second only to The Lion King.

Is that the silhouette of a flying pig I see by the light of a blue moon? Or did this conservative reader agree with something Rev. Robin Myers penned in Oklahoma Gazette?

I am sorry. I am sorry for my lack of concern for the state of the Oklahoma Public Schools until it affected my child directly.

‘No tolerance’ doesn’t teach


Commentary

John Thompson
The bipartisan MAPS for Kids Student Achievement Committee knew that Oklahoma City could not increase student performance without first creating safe and orderly schools. We also knew that would be our toughest challenge.

Oklahoma’s public defenders


Commentary

Robin Meyers
I am not talking about those brave, idealistic, underpaid lawyers who work to protect the last and the least, but KFOR, KOCO, KWTV and other local media outlets whose job it has become to defend the honor and reputation of our state when it is under attack by “foreigners” — aka, Australian politicians, lying journalists at Sports Illustrated or even the “unorthodox” Ed Shadid.

Typically, I look forward to reading Oklahoma Gazette each week, but this week, I was pretty surprised and disappointed to read about the “Ex-gay brigade” (News, Sept. 11), or as I shall call it as I see it, the “bully brigade.”

Ref: “On the right side of history” by Adam Soltani (Commentary, Aug. 28, Gazette). Our freedom of religion in this country has always allowed us to criticize other religions, even the Pope, and has allowed us to try to explain our religion to others in hopes they will join ours, which we, naturally, think is the best.

Thanks for publishing that great commentary (Sept. 11, Gazette) titled “Contraception empowers women” by Ryan Kiesel. Kiesel said that Oklahoma legislators passed an amendment to “limit access to emergency contraception in Oklahoma.” Limiting access to emergency contraception would undoubtedly mean more unintended pregnancies, thus the likelihood of more abortions — abortions which these same legislators fanatically oppose! What a revolting development!

Resilient repetition

What about the other issues that emerge more slowly and with fewer cliches nearly 6 months after May's weather disaster?


Commentary

Kurt Hochenauer
Anyone who has lived in the Oklahoma City area for a long time knows the post-disaster refrains by heart.

Atheist Rebecca Vitsmun is quoted in Gazette on Aug. 7 as saying, “I decided it was impossible for the god that I believed in to condemn billions of people in Asia, Africa and across the world to eternal damnation for not knowing who Jesus was… I decided that all religions were worshiping the same thing as long as they believed that good was the thing to strive for.”
