Letter: Politics, hatred

Actually Ted Cruz is a member of Congress since the Constitution defines congress as composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives. It is true however that members of the Senate are referred to as Senators and members of the house as Congressman.

Fossil hunter attempting another go at getting state fossil named

In a state where most of the people always seem to be against evolution trying to convince lawmakers to admit that fossils are real and weren't planted by the devil seems like a losing cause.

Letter: Felony required?

Let me get this straight,Kansas recognizes concealed carry permits from all states but does not recognize same sex marriage that is legal somewhere else.

One commenter writes that this is right because it is because "KS law is closer to the biblical and cultural norm of human society for thousands of years." The last time I read the Constitution there was no mention of following customs just because they were thousands of years old.

Letter: Theocracy, anyone?

There are enough contradictions in the Bible itself,adding the ones made by Christians to the list is beating a dead horse.

Letter: Theocracy, anyone?

I am not 100% sure but I think that the governments reasoning can be found in the preamble....We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The "promote the general welfare" clause is the specific thing used. There is a lot of controversy about this being a legal justification but as long as the SCOTUS doesn't rule it unconstitutional it will stand.

Letter: Shamans, Bible

What's the difference between one set of useless magic words and another. Might as well read chicken entrails for divine advice.

Faith Forum: Is having faith in horoscopes contradictory to having faith in God?

What is the difference,both are based on believing in something that can't be proven to work or exist.
