Rather than having English on one side of a form and Spanish (or Vietnamese) on the other, let’s create the forms to have both on each side.

Our charity can't spark entitlement
We must remind ourselves that the enforcement of just laws is a form of holy discipline and is an act of justice that serves the common good.

Snobbery un-Christian
Churches are not “VIP Clubs” and even though changing the perspectives of Catholics who take pride in looking down on others will obviously be difficult, the faith itself does not give anyone the right to be self-centered.

Respect for Bob P.
In my years of association with him, I learned he is a gift of God’s grace and charm.

Sharing stories helps healing
What has happened for me can certainly happen for anyone who participates in such an experience, in fact, for anyone who trusts Jesus. We simply shared our stories, and our hearts, with the retreatants and invited them to share their stories and their hearts with Jesus.

Ode to our retired editor
He was brave; he loved and was loved, with all his heart; and he gave all his energy and creativity to his fellow citizens and fellow children of the Love that lights everything that is, and was, and will ever be.

Congress can address hunger
One in five children is hungry in America. Congress can make a real impact by passing legislation that ensures kids have enough to eat so they can thrive in the classroom and beyond.

Reduce demand for pot
The time has come to work on reducing demand. We are called to uphold the “life and dignity of the human person.” Continuing the drug war does the opposite.

Youth sterilization law is sick
Do you think that any 15 year old in Oregon is capable of making the enormous  decision to be permanently sterilized so that he or she may never be able to have a child?

You owe an apology
That letter, citing your own standards, should not have been printed.

Called to care, regardless of nationality
At our judgment, Jesus will not ask about the nationality of the brother we took care of.

Treat disabled people like people
Why do we still look down upon disabled people like they are dirt?  Do non-disabled people not realize that the disabled are people too?

Passing 89 a mistake
Those pushing 89 hoped the insertion of a new clause into our state Constitution would prevent our Legislature from making or enforcing any measure affecting abortion.

Should have picked Art
A vote for Art Robison would have been a vote for real hope and change. He is a Christian, a scientist and an educator. He believes in term limits.

Lawbreakers ought not be rewarded
As a lifetime 83-year Catholic, I voted no on Measure 88.

Driver cards would have made us safer
A limited driver’s license issued to a person who is not here “legally” would have meant that person has passed written and driving tests. I believe we would all have been safer on the road.

God a part of founders' vision
Adams, a Congregationalist, upon reading the Declaration of Independence in 1776, motioned to changed the vague word for God “Creator,” to “Jesus Christ, Our Most High Lord and Redeemer of Mankind.”  It lost.

Thanks
I have found in the Sentinel a good balance of local parish news, inspiration, and an opportunity to look at the world with a Christian perspective, while still being interesting to read.

Thanks for prompting my order

Maybe his TV was broken
The French were not the only ones who helped the people on Mt. Sinjar. The United states was there also. Perhaps Mr. Flynn’s TV broke the day they aired that fact.

Filling up prisons a bad idea
Filling up the prisons with users and sellers is not a solution.
