Letters to the Editor
Many have written that Christians are judgmental. These are "accusations" by the stupid and foolish (Jeremiah 4:22 to paraphrase: the stupid and foolish are those who are ignorant of what God is). And these statements are also ignorant of Satan and how he operates.
The persecution of Steven Salaita has been long in the making at a university that has strong ties to the Israel lobby, local Jewish institutions and corporate-technology-military interests, and has excluded pro-Palestinian perspectives from its administrative apparatus.

Looking at the return address I was saddened to read: Illinois Republican Party.
It was appropriate the Illini wore new all white uniforms in their debacle at the University of Washington on Sept. 13. White is the universal symbol of surrender.

I sat at the dinner table with my two children who attend Mahomet-Seymour schools, one in third grade, the other in the 10th. I asked what they learned about 9/11, and they told me nothing.
After further questions, I found that nether of their schools even mentioned 9/11, not even a moment of silence.
