Letters to the Editor

People should get informed about religious beliefs

What kind of twisted thinking is going on in the news media? A Muslim young man kills gays because he has been taught that is what his religion requires and CBS and other network news programs are blaming Christians for what happened in Orlando. Muslims are killing people all over the world who are infidels (not Muslims) and it’s not their religion that is responsible, but one lone nut who claims to be Christian spews hatred and it’s all over the media.

For your information, Jesus taught that we are to love everyone, even our enemy. So, if a person is not acting in accordance with what Jesus taught, they are not acting in accordance with the Christian faith. Christians all over this world are performing acts of kindness. They are there supporting people and helping and feeding people wherever there are disasters. Does this news media ever say one word about the love Christians are showing continually? If you remove Christians from this world, it would be a very sad place. Hospitals, feeding programs, assisting poor in many ways, caring for orphans, helping the homeless, rehabilitation homes to help those who are trafficked, helping the addicted come out of addiction, and many, many other ways Christians are making a difference in this world. Christians are the givers of this world.

If people today knew history, they would they would know that Islam conquered most of North Africa and Asia, and parts of Europe by the sword and Christians did not want to fight, so they were removed by the sword unless they became a Muslim. They are at it again. So please don’t blame Christians for what Muslims are doing today. I encourage people to read the English version of the Koran and the Bible to be informed about what they believe.

LETTER: Books in the children’s section; sexualization and grooming

Editor’s note: This complaint was originally emailed to Pahrump library trustee John Shewalter on Sept. 27, 2022.

The writer of the complaint is unknown. Trustees redacted the name and email address of its sender before circulating a printed copy of the complaint at a public meeting this week.

COMMENTARY: Donald Trump gets just what he wanted

Does anyone really want to be indicted? Maybe if your name is Donald Trump, and you’re facing four investigations, three of them for serious abuse of presidential powers and one for using a lousy fix-it lawyer who paid hush money to an alleged mistress, writes columnist Susan Estrich.
