I am a retired US Air Force chaplain’s assistant. To my horror, the library at Scott Air Force Base has prominently displayed — right by children’s books — things about perverted sexual behaviors. It is from Satan’s mouth, right to the printed page. The library director said it was to show “diversity.” If sexual sin is diversity, my mother was a duck. Maybe her mother was a snake, which represents Satan.
Gov. Bruce Rauner and Jordan Richardson. Low flying planes used by the FBI, registered with bogus names, used for surveillance without warrants, to keep Americans safe. Make us believe in your honor. That is without honor. Protected from what? Why wasn’t Obama frightened about the bomb scare in the press room?
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that all states must allow and recognize same-sex marriages. This issue has been vigorously contested among the American electorate. It is an issue which produces deep, highly charged reactions from both those who support and those who oppose this decision. Although advocates claim same-sex marriages have attained social acceptance within this nation, there is a significant number of Americans who find such unions to be exceedingly offensive.
Illinois Sen. James Clayborne’s law firm charged East St. Louis 50 percent more than their previous law firm, which not only looks bad for any law firm but especially for one led by one of the state’s most powerful Democrats.
In regards to Jim Walters’ letter in the June 28 paper, it seems like Jim feels he has the right to be rude and hurt people’s feelings. Plus, Jim, how do you know God is a superstition, just because you don’t believe or want to believe in him doesn’t mean he doesn’t. Now that we know how you feel though, about not caring if you hurt people, we will know to stay away from you.
The Mississippi Valley Library District holds their meetings at the Main Street Collinsville library. The meeting room was once designated the Karma Wilbert Reading Room since her will designated that $75,000 be donated to the Collinsville Memorial Library. It is in this room that the district board of trustees now conduct the people’s business.
Some readers may have expressed displeasure when the BND reduced page size to cut paper stock cost. I am unaware of any reader complaints of the more recent cost reduction at BND by now using thinner paper stock.
I have spoken to you previously about the deplorable record your carriers have shown over the years, and again I’m without my paper. If these people your paper hires are so incompetent, then I suggest a different HR person handle the placement of delivery personnel.
I wonder if Jim Walters would be so fervent in his “free speech” that he would wear a KKK supportive T-shirt or tattoo or perhaps an Aryan Nation T-shirt and then see what kind of comments or reactions he has.
