Your Views: Columnists' bashing of Graham is arrogant

I couldn't help but respond to Joan King's bashing of Dr. Billy Graham. She is right to call herself "arrogant." Evidently she doesn't understand God's word, or doesn't read the word of God.

Your Views: Pro-gun TV ads cross the line

I have always been pro-gun, but, those out-of-state-funded TV gun commercials attacking Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isaakson have altered my thinking about the need for Congress to control people's access to weapons.

Your Views: Lobbyists’ gifts to lawmakers are all but bribes

According to Shakespeare's Juliet, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Likewise, a bribe by any other name still stinks like a pigpen.

Your Views: Many local church members do make an effort to offer comfort

I read with interest Suzanne Ivey's recent letter to the editor about Meals on Wheels and the elderly. Her question was "Where are the churches?"

Your Views: Why are federal agencies busy stocking up on weapons, ammo?

While attempting to disarm U.S. citizens, our government is arming itself to the teeth: At least 73 federal agencies have their own private armies here in the U.S., including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries Office, the Department of Education, the Food and Drug Administration, the Inspector General's office of the Department of Agriculture, the Bureau of Land Management, the Library of Congress and Veterans Affairs.

Your Views: Churches should do their part to provide company to elderly

While it was wonderful to read in this week's Times that Meals On Wheels has caught up with its waiting list, part of the story saddened me. When I read that "for people like (the widower featured in the story), the brief visit and chat may be the only human interaction he has in a day," I couldn't help but wonder: Where are the churches?

Your Views: Right to bear arms meant for people, not state

Jim Scharnagel's March 20 letter on the Second Amendment is a typical interpretation of that document by current liberal dogma. His final statement is a fair summation of his feelings. "While acknowledging that firearms such as sporting rifles and shotguns for hunting, and within reason, certain weapons for self-protection should be allowed, such rights were not addressed by the Second Amendment but rather a right to keep and bear arms for security of the state."

Your Views: 2nd Amendment was meant for militias, who are armed civilians

Jim Scharnagel is wrong about so many things (March 20 letter).

Your Views: Scientific data back the idea that humans cause climate change

I am both insulted and amused by my inclusion in the "vacuous political and pseudo-science class" and, regretfully, I have not participated in colloquiums sponsored by MENSA, a vacuous pseudo-science class if ever there was one. However, the scientific debate over global warming should not be trivialized and the gross misstatements printed need to be corrected.

Your Views: 2nd Amendment aims to protect us from government

In his letter "Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians," Jim Scharnagel makes the case that the Second Amendment was never intended to allow private ownership of firearms. While I agree with some of his points, the overarching theme is not one of them.

Your Views: Falcons stadium plan could lead to legalized gambling in future

The hasty rush to approval for a new Falcons stadium in Atlanta has both a bad odor and a hidden agenda.

Your Views: Majority of scientists believe global warming is genuine

Jim Gorman claimed, in a March 19 letter in The Times, that he has researched climate change and written articles on the subject. His conclusion: "There is not one shred of genuine scientific data that proves the theory of global warming. Nor is there consensus in the scientific community."

Your Views: Gun laws can’t protect us from insane killers

This is in response to Jim Scharnagel's letter from March 20 about the Second Amendment being meant for militias and not armed civilians.

Your Views: Second Amendment was meant for militias, not armed civilians

The National Rifle Association falls back on the Second Amendment as justification for owning firearms. This is an anachronism that has persisted from the framing of the Constitution up through the present.

Your Views: Biggest danger from high CO2 levels is political

I am so tired of my intelligence being insulted by the vacuous political and pseudo-science class. For the claims of the global warming cabal to be true, thinking people must put aside all common sense. The premise of the global warming theory is that carbon dioxide is a dangerous gas.
