Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical

On Sunday, June 29, a letter was read at all Mormon worship services worldwide calling on members to contribute their time and money to help pass the California initiative this November that would limit marriage to different-gender couples. The letter, from the Office of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said, "The Church's teaching and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God." (Actually, the "State" did it before God did.)

An urban center by any other name still stinks

The Signal's apologetic approach (Signal editorial, June 27) to our city manager's goals, whether we call it urbanization or something else, seems to ignore the downsides of massive build-outs.

Mullen’s bitterness comes through

In response to Jim Mullen's article ("Why my father was no Tim Russert," June 25, 2008), first let me start off by offering my condolences for the loss of his father. He must be so very proud of him.

Media must tell whole story of Iraq surge

While statistics are fed to media outlets like this paper to prop up the administration's and Rep. Buck McKeon's decision to support the surge, the facts ignored are that the weekly rate of American wounded has not gone down. The historical wounded report is found at icasualties.org, and it shows that in 2008 the number of wounded soldiers averages approximately 15 per week, which is the same average as the year before.

The flourishing green movement at COC

Having been a College of the Canyons student for the past five years has provided me with enough insight to say that the youthful exuberance of COC's recent green movement is a more positive experience than having no politics at all.

Bergdahl’s a deserter

In his column today (June 10) entitled "Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.", Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It's just more of Vignola's signature ranting.

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.

The best for others, in 2 flavors
