  • In a word: redact

    Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: REDACT It is a commonplace of biblical criticism...
  • Columbia Arts Council offering art camp through Aug. 19

    Listings are accepted on a space-available basis. Events must be open to the public, and priority will be given to those in Howard County. Items typically appear two weeks prior to the date included in the listing if sent far enough in advance. Deadline...
  • Live to celebrate again

    As saints go, possibly only St. Valentine is more thoroughly integrated into American pop culture than St. Patrick. Though their stories are rote to the faithful, they are perhaps less well known to the public at large. St. Valentine, whose feast day...
  • In Santorum, evangelicals seek another earthly savior

    In Santorum, evangelicals seek another earthly savior
    A group of conservative evangelical leaders met in Texas last weekend and endorsed a Roman Catholic for president. Given the history of evangelical antipathy toward the theological underpinnings of the Roman Catholic Church, that in itself signals a...
  • Cal Thomas needs to reread the Bible

    Cal Thomas needs to read the Bible more carefully ("In Santorum, evangelicals seek another earthly savior," Jan. 19). The parables he mentions do not prove that the kingdom of God is "invisible." Rather, they assert that the reign of God — which has...
  • The flawed arguments against same-sex marriage

    Those who quote the Bible to oppose same-sex marriage ought to reconsider. God actually said very little on what a marriage is, and we see many examples of it in the Bible. Which marriage did we want to preserve — the one where the guy first...
  • After the gay marriage debate, both sides will need a healing God

    The Jesuits (Society of Jesus) have a name for it — discernment. Discernment is basically a process of individual decision-making that attempts to get a glimpse of God's will apart from one's own ego. The raging debate on same-sex marriage brings...
  • Maryland Christians under attack

    Polls suggest that Maryland residents support and oppose homosexual marriage in equal numbers. I would suggest this is inaccurate because the only poll that counts is God's. God created marriage and in Genesis 2:23-24 it says that Adam said, "This is now...
  • Each Ravens player prepares for the first whistle his own way

    Each Ravens player prepares for the first whistle his own way
    It's Sunday morning, not quite 8. Sunlight is peeking through the blinds in the Hyatt Regency Hotel room on Light Street where offensive lineman Marshal Yanda stays before every Ravens home game. His eyes are open. He might try to fall back to sleep,...
  • Bible unambiguous on topic of marriage

    In response to R. Smith's recent letter ("The flawed arguments against same-sex marriage," Feb. 6), it is quite clear to me that the writer has never read the Bible. God made it quite clear that a marriage is not made of two people of the same gender....
  • Christians must stand up for gay marriage

    I would like to respond to the articles in The Sun regarding the gay marriage debate. The debate often centers around religious beliefs. I have religious beliefs that say we are to love God and our fellow man as ourselves. That seems to be universally...
