I just could not let the recent back-to-back letters using Christ and God references in support of Kavanaugh and the Republicans slide by. 

As for Kavanaugh, he flatly stated that the devil's triangle he referred to is a drinking game. It is not, it is a three-way sex act. He said that boofing was farting, when it is actually ingesting alcohol or other substances rectally for a better buzz (you read that right), otherwise he expects us to believe he was asking in his yearbook "Have you farted yet?” That would not make any sense.  He lied about being of legal drinking age those early years. What else did he about lie?

Being a Christ follower, those letters deserved a rebuttal for Trump and the Republicans who support him, who are all about lowering their taxes so they can hoard more wealth, which betrays the Christ teachings: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's," not to mention "Store up your riches which are in Heaven," "Woe be unto the rich, for they already have their reward," "It will be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into Heaven," "To whom much is given, much shall be required," "What ye do unto these, the least of my brethren, ye do unto me," and of course, "You cannot serve God and mammon" (wealth).

The only thing they seem to serve is mammon, in fact our president* is mammon incarnate. 

Republican ideology betrays Christ's teachings so much, you could say it is “antichrist” in the most neutral sense of that word.

Leadership is important in any endeavor, and at ECU we have had a spotty record in athletics. We have had some very good ADs and some that were not that good.

I came to ECU in 1961 and our leader in everything was Leo Jenkins, and even though he was the chancellor he also lead us in athletics.…

The North Carolina State Board of Elections, a bipartisan independent agency charged with overseeing North Carolina elections, compiled a post-election audit report (April 21, 2017) from the general election 2016 after examining nearly 4.8 million ballots cast and found two cases of voter…

Awash in virtual ink and bitterly clinging to resentment from last autumn, Calvin Mercer continues to publish passive-aggressive missives railing against Greenville’s elected leadership. Appended to his most recent correspondence, a rehashed Daily Reflector letter addressing the “highly…

The Orange County Register got it right, and thank you Daily Reflector for including it in your Other Voices column.

“For too long, Congress has abdicated its constitutional obligations with respect to war powers.” Did you know the U.S. military is currently deployed and combat ready in…

My sincere thanks to the George H.W. Bush family for giving us all a chance to remember what America is all about. 

The patriatism, the integrity and the honesty was a refreshing reminder of what I value in my country. The kind, respectful and humorous words were a pleasure to hear.  

I…

Maybe I or the Reflector got this wrong: $20 million assigned for athletic deficit and facilities; $10 million of that from a $95 million ECU Physicians accrued fund balance. It is to be spent because attendance is down at athletic events and the athletes need a special place to eat. I hope I or…

Donald Bryson, Civitas Institute president, has it all wrong in his “Stop the government takeover of health care,” piece in The Daily Reflector on Nov. 29. Most of the world’s industrial countries whose health care systems are government run have healthier populations than the U.S.…

In this season of hope, love and renewal, someone representing us, America The Beautiful, tear-gassed a pregnant woman and her children at our border. Others were gassed too.

From the perspective of the agent, there might have been a provocation for the gassing. Perhaps he perceived a threat,…

Pipelines are far and away the safest way to move energy, far safer than alternative means. And the state could receive more than $2.5 billion in tax revenues from offshore leasing, per a recent analysis, in turn helping families.

Yet those who decry energy or cheer when a pipeline permit is…

Reasonable people differ. I learned the truth of this back in the day when I was a student at the finest law school in all of Washtenaw County. The late renowned Whitmore Gray taught it to us in our Contracts course. He also taught us to never indulge in ad hominem commentary pertaining to folks…
