  • Let Jesus and His apostles’ words speak

    By George L. Faull

    I saw a letter by Carrie Bridgman on “Respect One Another” concerning gay marriage. Her letter is dripping with niceness “no name calling” and encouraging tolerance.
    She says that she is not going to call those who disagree with her “bigots.” She says those of us who disagree with her is because we read the scriptures literally.

  • Working to make a positive impact

    By Kenny Fogle
    Executive Director
    Tri-County Kentucky United Way

  • Sinful man and God’s law

    By Alexander Campbell

    Editor’s note: The closing of this column may be considered graphic by some readers.

    I am writing in response to the article submitted by Carrie Mook Bridge. In reading this article many no doubt will see that she is a “minister” and take her word for granted. Yet just a cursory read of the Bible such as Jeremiah 28 will show that Hananiah claimed to have strong credentials as a “prophet” as well, yet he was by no means a prophet simply because he held that title.

  • Another view on human sexuality

    This week, you can read Alexander Campbell’s guest column in response to a piece that appeared last week (“Respect for One Another” http://goo.gl/0eY73e). If you read Campbell’s column (which can be read here http://goo.gl/qZgnOX), then you know he considers homosexuality both sinful and unhealthy.
    Personally, I disagree with about 95 percent of what Campbell wrote, but I support publishing it as I know there are others who share his views. I also want to try to explain why I have a different view of human sexuality than Campbell.

  • Protect yourself from identity theft

    As a crime, identity theft is anything but new. It dates back to biblical times, when Jacob pretended to be his brother to deceive their father, Isaac.
    The term itself was coined in the mid-1960s, but it found new life with the popular rise of the internet. Now, barely a month passes without news of another breach of personal information that often affects millions of Americans.

  • Respect for one another

    By Carrie Mook Bridgman

    Guest columnist

     

    This is where I’m going to make some people very happy and others very unhappy.  I will not call anyone names if you disagree with me.  I will let you know what I think about this ruling, but the point of this column is to think about how we can move forward from here, no matter our opinion of the ruling itself.

  • State’s drinking water still healthy

    About a week ago, state officials released the latest annual report on the quality of a resource we too often take for granted: our drinking water.
    In short, the news is good for those who rely on the treated water provided each and every day by our nearly 450 public utilities.

  • Supporting a culture of entrepreneurs

    As we work to fuel innovation, create jobs and drive our economy forward, it’s important that we take steps to encourage entrepreneurship.
    “All businesses once were start-ups founded by entrepreneurs,” noted Rick Johnson, program director for Kentucky Innovation Network at the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation.

  • July will be a busy month for legislators

    I’m looking forward to a busy July with my work as your senator, and as a member of the Southern Legislative Conference’s (SLC) Education Committee. The SLC is a nonpartisan organization that brings legislators from 15 states together to discuss issues, share ideas, and work on multi-state problem solving.

  • Say ‘no’ to hatred

    Last week, Elaine de Leon Angh wrote a blog post in which she had some urgent things to say to people of faith. She wrote about the shooting at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina:
