To the editor:

In his article in the October 16 issue, Father Barron writes that unbelieving scientists don’t seem to know what we mean by “God.” He states that a universe of contingent entities requires a non-contingent source.

Some unbelievers assert that our universe and others derived from space time fluctuations that always existed. This debate, which has been raging for several years, is partly our fault because we leave the impression that God is a solitary individual who arbitrarily created the universe from nothing.

To the editor:

At the November election, you may want to consider using an absentee ballot, keeping in mind that one vote may become a deciding factor in many races. This ballot is designed for individuals such as yourself, extremely busy, yet wanting to ensure the right candidate wins the right office.

Stephen Kent’s article “Why not us?” urges every Christian to be a light to the world despite the failures of our government and the UN to act on global issues.

To the editor:

I object to the attitudes in your editorial of September 4. This was a primary election. That is, it was for the members of each party to decide who would represent their party in the general election in November.

As I do not belong to either party, it would be inappropriate for me to cast a ballot for either party. When there are other items on the ballot (e.g., school referendum), I vote in the primary elections.
