LETTER: Wake up, American churches
To the Editor: Why is America in the mess it is currently in and has become the defender of the abominable? Is it a Republican or Democrat issue? No. It's because the majority of America's churches are Laodicean, lukewarm, increased with goods, have need of nothing, wretched, miserable,...

LETTER: My hero is perfect -- he's Jesus
To the Editor: I want to be like my hero because he is kind, gracious, patient, forgiving, merciful, compassionate and very courageous. He is also humble. He is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is perfect. Over 2,000 years ago, the Lord was born as a man on the Earth. He was God, too....

LETTER: Jehovah, Allah are not the same
To the Editor: Recently The Daily Republic printed an article highlighting a spurious contradiction. The conveyance of that untruth was a statement by the Rev. Canon Gina Campbell, pastor of the Washington, D.C., Episcopal National Cathedral. We can hope local Episcopalians take...

LETTER: Letter was over the line
To the Editor: I am alarmed that John Shaw, of Mitchell, finds it acceptable to spew lies and hatred (see letter to the editor, Nov. 29. I am more alarmed that The Daily Republic abdicates its journalistic responsibility and prints Shaw's bigoted fabrications. Shaw glosses his warmed-over...

LETTER: Do we care enough to please God?
To the Editor: It appears we are starting to realize that aborting an unborn baby is wrong. For the first time in a national survey, more people consider themselves pro-life, or against abortion. Also, in South Dakota, the Planned Parenthood clinic in Rapid City will close on De...

OPINION: Fashion clashing with religion
In France, the bitter controversy over the hijab, or headscarf, worn by some Muslim women relates to citizenship, feminism, and the secularism of the French Revolution and Republic. In America, we have Abercrombie. So perhaps it's fitting that the U.S. Supreme Court has announced...

LETTER: Overwhelmed with the Lord's love
To The Editor: When we were small, if we were fortunate, we had loving parents who mentored us. They taught us about the one true love, Jesus Christ. We had our brothers and sisters to be kind to. Myself, something I'm ashamed of, I always had sibling rivalry with my brother until...
