What Jesus would think of Indiana law
I’m not sure why there’s so much controversy about Indiana’s religious freedom bill. The Bible has lots of examples with similar outcomes ...
Remember when Christ went to the well and shunned the women who was not one of his own? Oh wait, I think I got that backwards... But there was the time when the Samaritan ignored the person on the side of the road because he was different... Oh wait, that’s wrong too... OK, here’s one: Jesus was confronted with the woman who was bleeding, and he refused to touch her, because it was against his religion. Oops, I think I got that one backwards too.
If you call yourself a Christian and think it’s remotely possible that Jesus would be all in on Indiana’s new law, I’m pretty sure you’re being duped.
You can have opinions, but my religious beliefs trump them
Opinions. Guaranteed by our wonderful Constitution. And don’t we all have them! But must others agree with or act on your opinions? Of course not! Why should anyone have to go against their religious beliefs in order to satisfy your opinion?

Teens need more sleep; push back high school start times
We always give lip service to the fact that our children come first, but time and again we don’t put the money where our mouths are.
How long will it take for Superintendent Ann Clark and CMS to take an honest look at the literature and make decisions based on the research? It is a known fact that adolescents need more sleep and that starting the school day later for high school students should result in better grades and healthier students.

High school teens need to suck it up, go to bed earlier
You present very little in the way of a solution to pay for moving the times while overlooking the most obvious solution. If I have to start my day earlier, the best solution I have is to turn off my screens and go to bed a little earlier so that I can get the sleep that I need. It is time for our children to learn that the world does not adjust to them, but rather to be successful they must adjust to the world.
With e-mail erasure, Clinton thumbs nose at the people
Hilliary Clinton has defied our legal system again. Her e-mail server has been wiped clean, and she is daring the Congress to do something about it!
As Secretary of State, Clinton was an employee of the American people. And like any employee in any other field, she should be held to certain standards instead of being allowed to thumb her nose at our Constitution and above all, at the American people. She is an out and out disgrace!

In response to “E-Z Parking owner Feemster dies” (March 30):
There was more to Jeff Feemster than ties to Cannon
I was very disappointed by what The Observer chose to include in the coverage of Jeff Feemster’s passing. Instead of focusing on the man we lost, you choose to focus on his relationship with Patrick Cannon.
While I am certain that Mr. Cannon is a good man that made a few poor choices that he and his family are currently paying the price for, I know for sure that your readers would have been better served if you would have used the 60 percent of your article devoted to his partnership with Cannon to focus on Feemster’s contributions to his communities, his hard work, his kindness and his family that will miss him greatly.
Charlotte has lost a great man and he will be greatly missed by many.
