Tax cuts wise
Letter writer says John F. Kennedy knew the value of cutting taxes. (Catholic News Service)
Letter writer says John F. Kennedy knew the value of cutting taxes. (Catholic News Service)
In 1961, President Kennedy saw that Great Britain and France had cut taxes and their nations’ economies were outpacing the U.S.  For several years, Kennedy argued that the high tax rate was a drag on economic growth.

Preach vocations
St. Bernard once preached, “In religious life one lives more purely, falls more rarely, recovers more promptly, advances more surely, receives more graces, reposes more serenely, dies more calmly, is cleansed more quickly and in Heaven receives a greater reward.”

Preach for vocations, too
Pray for vocations-fine. Also preach, please!

He spoke truth

I feel compelled to share about an experience I had while visiting Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Salem.

They find God
The men from the Nazarene church who travel to South Fork each Friday evening with Father Larry have a new perception of the Catholic Church.

Good welcome
Thank you for writing about how we should welcome more LGBT people who want to be part of the faith.

Write on!
Alleluia, alleluia to the Catholic Sentinel for the article: “Eighth grader wins top honors for handwriting.”

Don't know yet

As a neutral observer of global warming/global cooling for 40 years, I do not think we yet know for certain whether we are in a permanent period of global warming.

No other has done more to reinforce my faith
It was when they rose to leave, and the cowboy helped the older woman rise that I realized I was observing my bishop, entirely “out of uniform,” acting in his capacity of loving son.

Avoid stereotypes
Like many Catholics, it saddens me that we often use the faith as a reason for superficial, pompous behavior.

Life is good
Clean burning technology and natural gas are why we don’t have smog anymore, not because of the Green Movement.

Nix slapping
It distresses me that Beaverton Valley Times opinion cartoons suggest violence as a way to address problems. The cartoon of June 18, page A8, shows slapping over a tax bill, and similarly, the cartoon of March 19, A5, shows slapping about electronic glasses.

An inspiration
I grew up in Saint Charles Parish in Portland and was in the school for all eight grades (1959-1967), surrounded by good priests like the pastor, Father John Laidlaw and associate Father Dan Reynolds, as well the Holy Child nuns.

Regarding archbishop's Supreme Court statement
Here are comments received after Archbishop Alexander Sample responded to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said homosexuals can marry:

Follow law
To me, this means more than paying taxes. It means obey the laws of the land.

Beach or Mass?
The following Sunday I attended Mass in the same parish church and I noticed that many in the congregation wore clothing that seemed like beach attire for a celebration of the Eucharist.

Health scandal
Do you realize that our taxes are contributing to killing babies and funding immoral behavior?
Sunday, July 12, 2015
Fight back
What other Archdiocese of Portland properties or revenues will be ruled as taxable using the “sole use” criteria? It is time for Oregon Catholics to fight back.

I see your bias
It’s terribly disingenuous to list the “top marginal tax rate” for any year when the discussion regards minimum wage.

On climate, trust what Church says, not politicians
Climate change deniers who identify as Catholics would do well to listen to scientists and the Church regarding environmental issues rather than American politicians.

John's a gem
He is always the happiest man in the room and loves to tell stories about his adventures.
