Government vs. religion

Government vs. religion

To the Editor: There’s been a lot of news about Indiana passing a freedom of religion law. Both sides in favor or against the law have voiced their opinions. My personal feeling is people who have strong religion reasons for not providing services should have rights under certain conditions. If there were only one baker […]

Paper is balanced

Paper is balanced

To the Editor:  Regarding Jim Keller’s view (Letter to the Editor, March 13) about liberal bias on the part of the Keizertimes, I note in the same paper, approximately 24 column inches devoted to supporting Keller’s conservative views (Michael Gerson) and 15 column inches reflecting what would appear to a liberal view (Gene McIntyre). The […]

Paper has bias against the right

Paper has bias against the right

To the Editor: I was very surprised reading the editorial titled “Do not be goaded into war.” Your prejudice toward any conservative positions is quite apparent.

Ethics

Ethics

To the Editor: What is going on in Oregon? We have a person in the governor’s chair that lacks scruples and good judgment. Governor Kitzhaber’s continuing episode with Cylvia Hayes is mindboggling. He claims he was blind sided about her past when it appeared in a newspaper article. The article pointed out her sordid background […]
