Crossing Obamacare

Hobby Lobby's legal battle against the Affordable Care Act has made it a darling of evangelical Christians nationwide.


Peter Wright
For supporters of Hobby Lobby, the fluorescent bulbs that light store aisles have perhaps become a beacon of righteousness. The Oklahoma City-based chain stepped into the political fray late last year with a controversial lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a case that has garnered praise from some of the most prominent evangelical figures in the country.

Questioning Hobby Lobby

Letters to the Editor

Dennis Weigand
In all the back and forth about Hobby Lobby and the Affordable Care Act (News, Peter Wright, ”Crossing Obamacare,” May 1, Oklahoma Gazette), there is one important question that I have not seen addressed: Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners?

One tasty Danish.

Imagine waking up in a river with a nasty cut on your forehead, a gun, a bag full of millions in cash and no memory of who you are. For many, we call this Monday. For the purposes of this review, however, we call it ID:A.

God bless metal

We’re unsure on which day God created metal, but he saw that it was good, and Becoming the Archetype continues spreading that sound.

Praise the who?


Gazette staff
The world’s news media does so enjoy the caricature of Oklahoma as the buckle of the Bible Belt. And, yes, while there’s no denying that much of the Sooner State’s population is devout, every so often a TV correspondent will stumble across an Okie who hasn’t gotten the memo. That’s what happened last week when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer did a live TV interview with a woman whose family survived the May 20 tornado.

Atheists, assemble!


Gazette staff
After her house was destroyed in the May 20 tornado, Rebecca Vitsmun bravely ditched the rules of Bible Belt conversation when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked her in a live interview if she “thanked the Lord” for having survived. Vitsmun hesitated before answering that she’s actually an atheist. That declaration prompted atheists everywhere to raise money for her, showing that Christian charity can be just plain charity.

In a Better World

Don't miss this excellent Danish drama.


Rod Lott
It’s not for nothing “In a Better World” took home the Oscar and the Golden Globe this past awards season as the year’s best foreign-language film.

God and tornadoes


Robin Meyers
I handed my driver’s license to the Transportation Security Administration agent in the Manchester, N.H., airport, and she said, “Oh, my God! Oklahoma? My condolences to your state.”
