ASHLAND — Nation has turned its back on God

Our nation has turned its back on God and His Word, and we’re paying the price, and it may get much worse.

When I was younger, people were ashamed of their sins and tried to hide them, but today, sinners want to put them right in your face, and in the face of God.

Over the last forty years, millions of unborn children have been killed in the womb. They call this killing “pro-choice.”

And now, the abominations in our land have increased to include homosexual marriages taking place between two men or two women, and worse, these abominations before God are being enthusiastically supported by the current resident of our White House, as well as in the platform of one of our major political parties. 

 It's time for God's people to wake up, stand up, and boldly speak up, then, get down on our knees and pray for forgiveness for being AWOL for too long!

Women’s choice: Binders or jobs?

Hiring women became a hot topic in the last presidential debate.

Women, on what do you focus from watching this debate?  Is it binders?  Resumes might have been in binders 10 years ago, but they are in computer files today. You may want to focus on the following.

Women have lost over one half million jobs during Obama’s term.  A job may have health care benefits for you and your family. It may also provide you security and the money to purchase contraceptive medicine if you choose.

Governor Romney’s record in Massachusetts showed that he placed more qualified women in his state’s government than any other state in America.  As President Romney, he can put vastly more women back to work.

What is your focus?  Is it binders or jobs?

  • PAUL CHITWOOD: Ruling on same-sex marriage defies state constitution

    News that U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn once again usurped the will of Kentucky voters is tragic and disappointing.

  • Recovery Fest celebrates kicking addiction

    The wet weather no doubt impacted the size of the crowd at Saturday’s Recovery Fest 2014 at Veterans Riverfront Park in Ashland, but there were plenty of reasons for addicts who are now drug free to celebrate and for speakers like State Sen. Robin Webb, D-Grayson, and others to talk about the impact the prescription drug epidemic has had on this region and for others to distribute literature and offer words of encouragement that could convince some to seek help in their battle with their drug addictions.
