November 1, 2011

A few days ago I walked into a local grocery store and was informed by a large sign in the doorway that "Our Seafood is Safe to Eat!"

Letters to the Editor:Take caution when choosing biblical quotes

November 1, 2011

Dear editor, I read Teri Bednarz's opinion column, "Biblical misinterpretation confuses moral teaching." I was disappointed that the point she may have been making in general was restricted to only one particular example (homosexuality), which didn't validate her message. Bednarz explained scripture...

 As the new year approaches, many seniors are beginning to consider what to do come summer, when they will be thrust into the "real fields." Beyond high school, education is specifically designed to produce students with points. Personal preference and curiosity lead them to the subjects they m...

With the Occupy Wall Street movement in full force and spreading across the country, it's a good time to confront an issue in society which we are sometimes all too willing to ignore. Equality does not exist. We live in a society divided by class. These divisions are not always firm — it is po...

I feel out of control and that terrifies me. I don't know who I can trust. Can I even trust myself? Silence. Isolation. Disconnection. Blame. These are some of the themes that emerge in the narratives of women and men who have experienced sexual assault. Such glimpses of lived experiences remind me...

Sex is a topic that people often think about but rarely openly talk about, especially in an academic setting.

Often in public debates, we hear folks cite biblical texts as "proof" that God does or does not "approve" of a certain stance on some controversial issue. In many cases, these interpretations of biblical texts are taken out of their cultural and social context, and applied to a modern context. This mi...
