News & Opinion

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week's news section might be of interest to anyone who's a homosexual or a Baptist, but it will be of special interest to those who are both. The feature article concerns a Baptist church that has, quite controversially, allowed gays among its ranks. Be sure to read the Bible quotes about homosexuality for an additional perspective. Religion has an important place in the lives of many people, but when its codified bigotry comes head to head with a changing society, how can its members cope?

We've also got the usual assortment of eclectic articles, arrogant opinions, and strange columns. Scroll, link, enjoy.
