Why do liberals love Islam, hate Christianity?

Letters to the Editor

Martin Morrell
I have several comments regarding Kurt Hochenauer’s Feb. 9 Gazette Commentary “Counterpoint: Separation anxiety.” Hochenauer worries that discussing religious ideas could “dumb down” our students. As dumbed-down as our public schools already are, it’s hard to believe that discussing anything could dumb them down any further.

Separation deliberation

Two pastors, including Sally Kern’s husband, debate whether the Constitution was intended as a religious document.


Clifton Adcock
The hour-and-a-half-long debate was full of historical references, statistics, philosophical viewpoints and well-delivered arguments.

Letters to the Editor

Glen Garcia
In the debate presented Feb. 24 at the Oklahoma City Community College (Clifton Adcock, “Separation deliberation,” March 2, Gazette), Pastor Steve Kern declared that “the Constitution is a Christian document established by Christians to preserve the Christian social order already established in the colonies.”

I want to answer Glen Garcia’s letter (“Questions for Kern”) in the March 16 Oklahoma Gazette. He posed two questions to my opening remarks in the Feb. 24 debate I participated in.

‘Stop yelling, start listening'

Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In the July 27 issue of the Gazette, Marty Morelli (“The right facts”) continues this attempt to excoriate progressives using the very same tactic that he originally used in his “Hitler was a progressive” diatribe on June 29.

The debt deal

Clifton Adcock
The debt-ceiling fight that consumed politics and media for weeks came to a conclusion on Aug. 3 with President Barack Obama signing a hard-fought deal that would raise the nation’s credit limit and avoid default.

Human network

Modern-day slaves are trafficked through Oklahoma, but one coalition is trying to raise awareness with a rally.


C.G. Niebank
Although the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution was supposed to abolish slavery in the United States 146 years ago, a coalition of law enforcement agencies and social service groups has scheduled a rally Saturday in Bricktown to draw attention to the continued existence of human trafficking, both nationwide and in Oklahoma.

Read the constitution

Letters to the Editor

Carl Owen
Finally, a Republican who speaks the truth. In the article “Drug-testing for dollars” (News, Feb. 29, Oklahoma Gazette), when asked if we test [Temporary Assistance for Needy Families] applicants for drugs, why shouldn’t business owners applying for state incentives be drug tested as well, Republican Rep. Guy Liebmann replied, “If he hired somebody or brought in five more jobs, should we drug test him? He’s done the state a favor, putting them on the payroll and they’re going to pay taxes and use the local shops and eat out and so forth.”
