Welfare recipients denied work ‘blessing’


Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Brandon Wertz (Letters, “‘Christian’ nation ‘going to hell,’” July 27, Gazette) is right that government should not subsidize the wealthy. However, he is off base to use half of the parable of the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:41-46) to defend government welfare spending and claim, “If this is a ‘Christian’ nation, we’re surely going to hell” because of “those fighting to keep (government) services from the poor.”

‘Laugh and cry’


Letters to the Editor

Trevor Bruner
I am proud to be from Oklahoma, but the Reclaiming America for Christ event in Moore is an embarrassment for this state. The ignorance displayed in the article (News, Clifton Adcock, “Reclamation project,” Aug. 10, Gazette) only serves to reinforce the cultural backwardness of some of our residents and elected leaders.

‘A precious garden of dumb’


Letters to the Editor

Howard Koerth
Regarding the Reclaiming America for Christ event (News, “Reclamation project,” Aug. 10, Gazette) and, among many possibilities, like “the Earth is around 6,000 years old,” “dinosaurs walked with humans” and “some baby dinosaurs may have been brought aboard Noah’s ark” (my personal favorite):

Fossil watch


Letters to the Editor

Jay Edwards
In his letter, “Fuel for fossil debate” (Letters, July 27, Gazette), the Rev. Steve Kern says, “Evolution predicts there should be thousands of intermediate fossils that have come and gone to support their simple to complex gradualism. They are not there.”

Delicious discourse


Letters to the Editor

John D. Carlson

When I pick up a copy of Oklahoma Gazette, I always turn first to the “editorial” pages (followed by a visit to the food and entertainment sections and then the crossword puzzle). This is not to say that I don’t read and appreciate the cover stories and other features — especially regarding City Hall shenanigans — because I do.

‘Bait and switch'


Letters to the Editor

David Orr
In an Aug. 10 Gazette letter ("Why pay $30 million to move OGE substation?”), Larry D. Fry predicts revenue enhancements benefiting OKC from the recent decision to change the MAPS timeline and build the convention center before the projects citizens actually voted for, and with a $50 million tax incentive to spur construction of a multistory convention center hotel.

Calling Rep. Lankford


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
I see that U.S. Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., is once again misrepresenting legislation, claiming that “The debt deal” (News, Clifton Adcock, Gazette) requires either a constitutional balanced budget amendment or “a proposal to cut $1.5 trillion in spending.”

Puzzling proclamations from public figures


Letters to the Editor

Travis Ray Nance
“As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion …” —The first phrase of the Treaty of Tripoli, as submitted by President John Adams, ratified unanimously by the U.S. Senate in 1797.

Design unintelligent


Letters to the Editor

Clinton Wiles
The Rev. Kern’s letter (“Fuel for fossil debate,” July 27, Gazette) on the scarcity of intermediate fossils indicates he still lacks an understanding of evolution.

Questioning the Kern clan


Letters to the Editor

Michael Hopkins
After reading “Reclamation project” (Aug. 10, Gazette), I googled “Reclaiming America for Christ” and immediately found that one of the top results was “Birth Certificate forgery — You Decide,” which is on RAFC’s website.
