Temporary Frenzy 

Pin It

John Birch Society members use language as a weapon to support their dogma (ie., conflating liberalism, socialism and communism) then use lowest-common-denominator reasoning (such as assigning evil, sinister, subversive intentions to someone whose position on some matter might parallel a position taken by the Communist Party) to whip their adherents into an anti-government frenzy ( I’m surprised there aren’t more Timothy McVeighs around). And of course, this tends to come to light during our more unsettling economic times. Cooler heads always prevail and the angst-ridden miscreants slowly disappear.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
