Letter to the Editor: Christians, Muslims and the Bible
To the editor: Our country allows all religious faiths. In countries where Islam is the dominant religion this is not true. I just read a book called "Killing Christians" by Tom Doyle with Greg Webster. Thousands of Christians are being killed because they left the Muslim religion...

Letter: Pray for persecuted Christians
To the editor: The May issue of "Decision" magazine, published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, tells much about Christians in many countries being persecuted and killed because they believe in God and have trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. About 90,000 were...

LETTER: Bashers are the real sinners
To the editor: I'm going way out on a limb and I'm sure I'll receive some hate mail or phone calls because of this letter I'm writing. I and many others are sick and tired of all the hypocrisy that seems to be worldwide. This is to those who do this practically on a daily basis: shunning,...

LETTER: A pro-choice vote is mortal sin
To the editor: I can't understand why Christians have such a hard time deciding who to vote for. A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for pro-life and a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for pro-choice and a pro-choice vote is a mortal sin. James Bertrand Evansville, MN (A paid political...

LETTER: Not on same wavelength
To the editor: I re-read the letters you printed in the Echo by me and Jami Gaither (hers on Feb. 5, 2016). We apparently were not on the same wavelength. I believe the Bible is God’s word for us to read and obey. The people she called “invaders” or “missionaries” who tried...

LETTER: Love it or leave it

LETTER: Why must Christians be silent?

LETTER: Christian faith blasphemed multiple times
To the editor: In response to the letters of Gretchen Obert and Galen Mohammed, this is my only allowed rebuttal. Further response will have to be taken up by others. Muslim regimes are guilty of flagrant violations of civil rights, political freedoms and human decency. Despite this,...

LETTER: Questions some of the 'facts' referenced
To the editor: In reading Gretchen Obert’s letter about Muslims, I question some of the “facts” referenced. The pilgrims were seeking religious freedom. However, several generations later, the founders of our country were very cautious about separating religion from the government....
