A Matter of Faith

by Tia Will “I told my community, there is nothing we can do now. But the church needs funds”. “We believe there is no discrimination in charity. It is the act that is rewarded. It doesn’t matter who is the recipient.” Who said these words? Was it the pastor of a protestant church, a...

Sunday Commentary: Thursday’s Public Comment Illustrates the Importance of Proper Process

It may be argued that Thursday’s public vindicates the school board’s vote on June 4, but I would strongly argue against that view.

My View: Marriage Equality Came Much Sooner Than Expected

It is hard to remember that just six and a half years ago, a ban on same-sex marriage narrowly passed… in California. Critics will point out, of course, that the voters of California never voted to allow same-sex marriage and, while true, does it really matter? In a matter of a few short years,...

Cure the Disorder That Caused the Confederate Flag To Be Raised in the First Place

by Dennis Parker We have witnessed the removal of the Confederate battle flag from some state houses and may see it removed from more, if not all, of the states in which it continues to fly. The total removal of the flag, whenever it occurs, will be grotesquely belated. And those who warn us...

BREAKING: US Supreme Court Upholds Gay Marriage As Nationwide Right

In a narrow 5-4 decision, the US Supreme Court has ruled that the US Constitution guarantees a nationwide right to same-sex marriage.
