My dear Mr. Arnold Hamilton, do you really believe your readers know what a run on sentence is? Or care? Or what even John 3:16 is? They probably think both have something to do with a toilet on the third floor. Or what very Christian is? Now I love your articles, but when it comes to biblical views on sex, you need to pick on someone your own size, not little ole John Bennett.
It just so happens this will be my fortieth year studying the scriptures. I'm sure pastor Scott Hamilton is a good man and wants to do good in church, but you can go sit in a chicken coop, and you're still not a rooster, are you?
Scriptures aside, Mr. Hamilton, do you really believe two men having sex is okay with God? And people who are called by his name should okay it, too? And if I was very Christian, do you think I believe that Obama, a Harvard graduate, evolved in the last year or two to think it's okay for same-sex couples to get married? I'll tell you what Christians need to do: They need to get rid of all these halfwits from the White House on down. That's what being very Christian would do. Because if I've learned anything in the last 40 years, it's this: a lot of these poor ignorant, over-educated, no-common-sense idiots are headed right straight to HELL!

Recently, you mentioned that it would take roughly $33 million to fix the one-mile stretch of S. Yale Ave. from 81st street to 91st street. That is a huge amount of potential funding for that one mile of roadway.
Why not give equal funding for projects in District 2? And, if not equal funding, then at least provide the necessary funding for the one project that has been over looked in District 2 for the past 15 years. It is the intersection of 101st Street and S. Delaware Ave.
The safety of that intersection is vital to everyone. This intersection should have been widened years ago when the Creek Turnpike and the four-lane Riverside Parkway advanced as feeders onto this tiny road. In the next 60 days or so, the city leaders of Tulsa will be formulating a list of potential projects that may be included in the Fix Our Streets package that is slated for a November, 2013 election.
Please make sure that the widening of the intersection of 101st street and South Delaware Ave. is included as a specific project on the Fix Our Streets package that is slated for a November, 2013 election.

Got Any Tinfoil? Because I Totally Need a New Hat
Since killing 13 soldiers and wounding 32 more, Nidal Hasan has been paid 278,000 dollars while his victims will not receive the same pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat. Despite Hasan communicating with known terrorists and screaming "Allahu Akbar" as he mowed down his fellow soldiers, Obama has deemed this a workplace violence incident! But then Obama claims that the Muslim call to prayer is the sweetest sound he has ever heard!
It is amazing how Obama took credit for the death of Osama bin Laden and yet is FUNDING Al Qaeda rebels to topple the legitimate government of Syria! One such Al Qaeda group calls themselves the Osama bin Laden brigade! How long did Obama and Hillary blame the attack on our personnel in Benghazi on a Mel Brooks like satire on Mohamed! We had to get the truth from the president of Libya! Joseph Goebbels was a rank amateur compared to the current administration in the White House.

Animals Are People, Too
As a heartwarming video of a tornado victim finding her dog beneath the rubble of her house while being interviewed for CBS News shows, many beloved dogs and cats may still be alive and trapped in the wreckage left from the tornadoes that tore through Oklahoma.
I encourage those who are searching for survivors and helping with cleanup to alert local animal control or animal rescue agencies to any animals they find left behind, injured, or otherwise in need of help.
Including animals in rescue efforts protects both animals and the people who care about them. As we learned from Hurricane Katrina and other disasters, many people would rather risk their lives than leave behind their beloved animals to face certain death after a disaster.
For the tornado victims who have lost everything, their animal companions may be their only source of comfort. Honoring the human-animal bond by ensuring that all members of victims' families are saved is of utmost importance.
