Letters

  • ‘Christians’ who responded to atheist’s letter are atheists, too

    To the editor:
    To the editor:
    I would like to respond to the letters addressing my piece that appeared in the Jan. 23 edition of The Anderson News.
    Thanks very much to the Christian’s response to my article about gun sense and extremists. I submit to the public my position concerning religious extremists is substantiated by the letters.
    The religious right, through its own solipsism, ethnocentrism, fear and intimidation impedes democracy by authoritarian dominance and believe the so-called sinners should be dominated by the righteous.

  • Thoughts on protester, recycling

    To the editor:
    After laughing at the recent letter from the atheist who is backing gun control, I discovered that some did stay in there long enough to read the article. I would not have because it was nonsense and lost my interest as being total babble from someone who was trying to impress all of us with his huge verbiage and rhetoric.
    I am only responding because it did bother a friend of mine. I took it as nothing more than science fiction.

  • State’s unfunded liability in crisis, and getting worse

    To the editor:
    With the State Legislature now in its 2013 session, Kentucky citizens can only hope that state leaders act quickly and responsibly to solve a state crisis. The unfunded liability of the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS) is growing worse each year.
    Several variables can and do affect the financial conditions of KRS, but one that has been of concern to us for nearly two decades is the General Assembly’s intentional underfunding of their employer contributions to the pension systems.

  • After kicking God out of schools, don’t blame him for not being there

    To the editor:

  • Hoping atheist Riley will one day be ‘brother in Christ’

    To the editor:
    This in regard to Yossarian Riley, the atheist who wrote a letter to the editor in last week’s paper.
    The atheist has written long-winded retorts expressing himself with engaging words, that are strongly opinionated, and in total opposition of a true and living God.

  • Act now to save rainforests

    To the editor:
    I want to save rainforests. We need rainforests because the plants of the rainforests generate much of the earth’s oxygen.
    One easy way to save the rainforests is to buy foods that are grown in a sustainable way, like bananas or coffee.
    I hope I now have convinced the citizens of Anderson County to save the rainforests.

  • Bugged over historic district, guns and speeders

    To the editor:
    There are currently three bees in my bonnet.
    First there is the proposed historic district. We have a committee that wants to implement what it thinks is best for the community. Never mind that the properties in question are owned by individuals who paid for those properties, carry insurance and pay taxes on them.
    Yet this committee wants to control and restrict the appearance of these private properties (homes and businesses).

  • ‘Gun sense’ needs more than ‘fundagelicals,’ ‘insurrectionists’

    To the editor:
    In his book “Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of global Power,” Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security advisor for President John F. Kennedy, writes: “In its very early phases, political awakening tends to be most impatient and prone to violence. Its passion is fueled by a deep sense of historically aggrieved self-righteousness. In addition, early political awakening is characterized by a focus on national, ethnic, and religious identity … ”

  • Police chasing hogs brings back memories

    To the editor:
    After reading the story about the pigs and law enforcement encounter, I had memories of work experiences that take the cake.
    While working as an EMT in Anderson County in the 1980s, I was asked by a little old lady to get her robe. It was upstairs in a back room in a box in a stuffed closet. She was saving it to wear to the hospital when needed. She wouldn’t get on the stretcher until she had her robe.
    I complied with her wishes — good thing it wasn’t a true emergency.

  • Where do you stand, sheriff?

    To the editor:
    Dear Sheriff Troy Young,
    As the chief law enforcement officer of Anderson County, you were required to take an oath upon entering office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
    Having taken that oath, I would like to know, along with many other Anderson County residents, if you will honor your oath by refusing to enforce federal rules, regulations and directives that violate the Constitution and/or the Bill of Rights.
