Kern: Go back to the closet

She was kinda asking for it with that book title.

When Bob Dylan said they’ll stone you when you’re trying to keep your seat, he may have been talking about state Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City.

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.

Holy Warr

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


Music

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.

Oral argument


Letters to the Editor

Frank Riddick
Randy Potts’ hermeneutic (Life, Greg Horton, “Walk this way,” Sept. 21, Gazette) would have to admit that murder has no conflict with Christianity.

Moral 'Oral'


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I have a couple of problems with Frank Riddick’s “Oral argument” (Letters, Oct. 5, Gazette). His response to Greg Horton’s “Walk this way” article (Sept. 21, Gazette) tries its hardest to find contradiction in Randy Potts’ interpretation of Christianity by utilizing mental jujitsu to prove that same interpretation would allow for murder.

WWJD?


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In response to “Bah, humbug!” (Chicken-Fried News, Nov. 23, Gazette) in which U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe claimed he would never attend Tulsa’s Holiday Parade of Lights because it nixes the word “Christmas,” I have to say, good for him.

Shock and schadenfreude


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
I’m not sure which emotion best conveys my feelings with regard to Tom Furlong’s Nov. 16 response (“A shot in the dark,” Oklahoma Gazette) to James Cooper’s story, “From closet to community,” (Nov. 2 and 9, Gazette).
