Churches are more involved in politics every election. It seems that a line continues to be crossed in the separation of church and state, much more so in the battle of Proposition 8.
Tom Pedersen's letter to the editor and cartoon (Nov. 16) were right on the mark. The Signal's editorial is a misguided encouragement of a master plan that is based upon erroneous assumptions. Mr. Seaver's pronouncement "that it is now or never" is an outright scare tactic with no basis in fact.
We woke up on Nov. 15 and were shocked to see a front-page photo of young man skating at the skate park without a helmet.
Regarding Proposition 8 and the lawsuits, if the minority is allowed to overrule the majority, then I want to start a "impeach Obama" campaign today.

I have noticed over the past couple of months spotlight articles of the West Ranch Marching Band and Color Guard.
I am writing in response to the letter written by Matthew Brayman and printed in the Sept. 16, 2008, edition of The Signal. Mr. Brayman asserts that Barack Obama's tax proposals will result in a $21,000 tax increase for a family making $75,000.
The Los Angeles City Council has gone on record in support of new federal legislation that would eliminate language defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
I find it inconceivable that anyone, female or male, would give Sarah Palin the election nod.
With all the people out there who can do commentary without being so offensive and showing so much hatred toward those that have a different view, I don't know why The Signal still runs this Mr. (Reg) Henry.
It is laughable that the former teacher who obviously continues to support Bush and his failed policies would publicly flaunt his continued support after a landslide election in which his vision of America lost.
To everyone who voted "yes" on Proposition 8: Please take off your blinders and open your eyes to what you have just passed.
Even though Proposition 8 may have won out at the polls, long-term trends all point in a positive direction for the eventual acceptance of gay marriage in California.
Benefits to short sale negative equity home
I am writing in response to the Aug. 15th column penned by attorney Hale Antico regarding the options homeowners have when needing to sell a home that has negative equity.
I am an old guy 75 - soon to be 76. I have found that I can change!
Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.
Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?
There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").
The State of Islam has been declared by ISIS or ISIL. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the leader of ISIS.
I want to give big kudos to the Santa Clarita City Council past and present, the city manager and everyone involved in making the city bike/walking/running trails the fantastic network they are today.
It's nice to see a positive article on the front page of The Signal about Shane Vereen ("Vereen brings it back," June 22).
Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).
Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.
I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.
On the rare occasion I see a sheriff's car in the area and can access the deputy, I thank them for their service and for driving my street, West Del Monte Drive.
During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.
Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.
I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.
I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).
