What Bible Is the GOP Reading

What Bible Is the GOP Reading

    What Bible Is Santorum Reading? By Mike Lux When conservative Congressman Todd Akin a few months back suggested that liberalism was a "hatred of God," I postulated that given the overwhelming support for liberal and progressive values in the Judeo-Christian Bible, perhaps he had never bothered to actually read the Bible. With Rick Santorum's recent comment that Obama's agenda is "Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology," I am now ... Full Story

Visiting my family is a relative experience

  By Rev. James L. Snyder I was reminded recently that the only thing growing in my family tree are fruits and nuts. Personally, I am not sure if I am a fruit or a nut. Just do not ask my wife. I had been away for so long I had forgotten many things about my family. My recent visit served as a refresher course reminding me why I had moved away in the first place. Memory sometimes pays little tricks causing us to remember the "good old days" and forgetting that sprinkled in among the good ... Full Story

Berthoud Media Campaign Invites You to Get to Know a Mormon

  Submitted by Tom Jones LDS Loveland Stake Media Representative  BERTHOUD — There is a national conversation taking place about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its members, and starting the first week of October, Mormons in Berthoud will be taking part in that conversation. That’s when the Church will launch a national media campaign in a dozen major cities called “I’m a Mormon.” The campaign includes television spots, billboards, ads on buses and Internet ...

Where have all the heroes gone?

Rev. James L. Snyder In celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of the most horrific events in the history of the United States one cannot help but reflect back on the past decade. We have come a long way, but I am wondering if we have gone the right way. My wife and I were thinking about this the other night and she startled me with a question. Most of the time she just startles me, but this time she had substance in the form of a question. "I wonder," she said rather thoughtfully, "where all ... Full Story

High inflation reaches a new low

By  Rev. James L. Snyder I am not usually given to protesting much of anything these days. "Live and let live," is the motto I go by and up until now, it has served me rather well and I have no complaints. I must confess, however, that recently I have been challenged in this area of my life. I have tried to keep my cool and have succeeded to a minimal success. I know one of these days I am going to turn into Popeye where he says, "That's all I can stands, I can't stands n'more?" Then, look ... Full Story

The taxing of my fragile sanity

Rev. James L. Snyder I'm fine now, but such was not the case this past week. Normally, I am not given to procrastination, except when it comes to giving my money away. I am not Mr. Scrooge but I am Mr. Fugal. I always pay my income tax but I also wait until the last minute to write that check and autograph it for good old Uncle Sam. I was thankful to have several extra days to do it this year. Instead of April 15, the government extended to April 18. I am not sure the reason nor do I care to ... Full Story

One man’s joke is another man’s hug

Rev. James L. Snyder To anybody that knows me, (and can anybody really know anybody else?); they would readily affirm that I am not addicted to hugging. Let me point out very quickly I am not allergic to it either. I just believe a good hearty handshake says everything I want to say to anybody I meet. This is biblical. The Bible talks about extending to one another the right hand of fellowship, and nothing says it better than a firm, hearty handshake. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking ... Full Story

A really short history of broccoli

  Rev. James L. Snyder Have you ever had serious second thoughts about something? Of course, I usually have severe trouble with establishing first thoughts. But once I have finished a serious thought I like put it behind me and go on with life. For example. For years, people have been telling me how harmful drinking coffee is. Something to do, so they tell me, with being addicted to caffeine. Then, if I cannot give up coffee, I am to limit the number of cups of coffee I drink per day. This ... Full Story

Dealing with my recent drug problem

Rev. James L. Snyder It all began for me about four months ago. I was busy with my work when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came and interrupted me. Really, I do not mind interruptions. An interruption, from anybody, is a wonderful excuse to stop what you are doing and take a break. The older I get the more breaks I seem to need. "I think we ought to take a vacation," she said. Well, when my wife comes up with a good idea she comes up with a good idea! I did not know if we were voting ... Full Story
