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.”

Jesus and gay people

Letters to the Editor

Randy Johnston
My faith is simple. I believe in God and Jesus Christ. I believe God is all things to all people. I believe God loves everybody and everything. To see God, I merely need to open my eyes and look around. Evidence is everywhere.

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.

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.”

Holy Warr

Don’t let the Christian-rock label fool you: Warr Acres’ message is a musical call to arms.


Carmen Forman
A new Oklahoma band is breaking norms by making music that sounds like what would happen if Maroon 5 combined their musical efforts with Rihanna and Jesus.

Craig Finn — Clear Heart Full Eyes

The Hold Steady’s songwriter steps out on his own to write some songs about loneliness.


Matt Carney
I think the best way to compare the songwriting material in 40-year-old Craig Finn’s first-ever solo album with the excellent stuff that constitutes his catalogue with Brooklyn-by-Minneapolis rockers The Hold Steady is to just embrace the truth that you can’t have fun all the time.

Messianic nickname


Gazette staff
A committee of the Southern Baptist Convention has decided that members won’t be voting on a name change at the next annual convention. Citing legal and logistical issues — as well as sheer cost — the executive committee recommended messengers not vote on the issue.
