Equal Access at the Schools? 

In response to last week's Walking The Line.

I was very surprised to learn that right wing religious groups are legally proselytizing to children in trailers located next to the public schools. Of course they want to spread their religious bile while the children are young enough to not have fully developed critical thinking ability. Indoctrinate them while they are young. While these groups think it is their fundamental right, I wonder how they would respond if a Muslim organization were to bring in their own trailer espousing the Moslem faith? Or how about an atheist group, which wanted to teach critical thinking? I am sure they would be outraged. After all, freedom of religion only means freedom of their hate filled ideology and cannot be extended to any other group. Nothing closes one's mind and hardens one's heart like religion.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
