Ending the Defense of Marriage Act was a blessing for conservatives. Now, when there’s extreme weather, they can say it’s the wrath of God instead of climate change.

A man who beats his wife regularly is more of an assault on the traditional institution of marriage than two guys getting hitched. Odd how the Defense of Marriage Act never addressed domestic abuse.

Let there be no doubt that divorce is a deliberate and conscious assault on religion and all traditional values.

Being married never solved anyone’s problems. Instead, it created them.

The bad news about Obamacare is that it’s now open to massive fraud, much like the toxic loan mess. But the good news is that the Medicare “doughnut hole” will soon be closed.

Barack Obama is a historic president as the Hindenburg was an historic dirigible.

Obama is going to arm the Syrians. Is he going to make them pass background checks first?

Sixty-seven shot (including 7- and 5-year-old boys) and 11 dead in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. But it’s OK – the shooters were probably all protecting themselves. Little boys can be very intimidating.

In the oft-called Christian nation, shouldn’t people be packing Bibles rather than guns?

The whole Judeo-Christian tradition stands at the precipice of an event horizon.

The City Council need not be concerned if it is financially unable to build a new Central Library for the homeless to sleep in. Just send the homeless to the Ambassador Hotel. The city already has a stake in it.

The article on the Andale family (June 29 Eagle) and their harvest experience was so beautiful and refreshing that I was inspired beyond belief. That is the type of family that we should all emulate. May they be richly blessed.

A neighbor purchased fireworks for all the neighborhood children and even shot them with my 5-year-old. I can’t thank her enough for this act of kindness, as I wasn’t able to purchase any this year.

Congratulations to Suzanne Perez Tobias for her column on volunteers (July 4 Wichi-Talk). It’s refreshing to see good people and their deeds featured. We need more of this type of news.
