Christians should be unafraid to show their ‘signs’

The political season for the presidential election is upon us. The television networks’ news programs are full of political debate coverage, poll data, and interviews with candidates. People line up on either side and endorse candidates publically and those announcements are broadcast nationwide. Soon the networks will be bringing back the red and blue states […]

Grant McGee: Christmas special every year

Grant McGee Christmas means many things to many folks. For Christians its the birth of Christ. For Pagans it means the rebirth of the Sun. And for folks who like presents and things it’s a great time to get stuff from Santa Claus. This Christmas Day I’m thinking about great December 25ths I have known. […]

Christians set good example to follow

We hear it from Ward Churchill proteges and our most-progressive friends and colleagues. White male American Christian capitalists are intolerant of other cultures and religions, and they must stop trying to boorishly dominate the world. It’s a drum beat that never stops. Christianity may be the most openly blasphemed religion in the world today, yet […]

Offensive art denounces religious beliefs

Freedom New Mexico Christians have rights and they had best assert them regarding a government- funded exhibit, at a Colorado museum, that depicts Jesus receiving oral sex from a man.

Christians also capable of radicalism

God makes all things new

By Curtis K. Shelburne: Local columnist Christians serve a God who is making “all things new.” In the “Revelation,” the Apostle John contrasts the new heaven and the new earth with the old heaven and old earth that, he says, will pass away. He sees a new city, the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming […]

Letters to the editor: We are not nation of Christians

We are not nation of Christians According to Stan White (in Sunday’s letter headlined “Presidential acts questionable”), the president acted questionably when he stated “America is not a Christian nation.” I believe he was stating the truth. America is a nation of many religious beliefs including many that are not “Christian.” Perhaps White is thinking […]

Jesus’ birth showed new way to think

Freedom New Mexico It is curious in some ways that modern-day Western Christians have created a more lavish holiday — which in many ways has become a thoroughly secular and in some ways excessive celebration in which Santa Claus and Rudolph play a larger role than the baby in the manger — of the birth […]
