I was surprised to read T.J. Foster’s great leap to atheism (“Theologian, apologist Norman Geisler set me on a path to atheism,” Nov. 1) after particularly precise disagreements with a theologian (Geisler) and an evangelist (Chick).

Glad to hear President Trump’s Department of Justice is backing a Christian school (Bethel Christian Academy) in its religious discrimination lawsuit against the state of Maryland, which kicked the school out of a voucher program because of the school’s reasonable belief in traditional marri…

We should not obsess with concerns about foreign governments’ effects on our elections — our politicians are destroying our elections from within.

I read with some dismay the letter by T. J. Foster of Lexington Park published in the Nov. 1 edition of the Maryland Independent, “Theologian, apologist Norman Geisler set me on a path to atheism.”

As a Baltimore resident and bird lover, I care about the health of the Patapsco River and the Chesapeake Bay. When I visit Inner Harbor with my family, I look out for local birds like Caspian terns, laughing gulls and wood ducks. These birds rely on healthy fish populations and clean water, …

I appreciate having a local paper printing differing opinions on many subjects. The dominating major media no longer presents us with unbiased news or input. In the Maryland Independent of Nov. 22 we had a writer appealing to “Saving Babies” (pro-life) next to a letter from an anti-Trump Dem…

Well Fred, you are partially right. (Fred Bumgarner, Maryland Independent, Nov. 22, “Republicans need to call out Trump’s behavior”) We as Republicans really do need to call out President Trump, not “that embarrassment residing in the White House” as you so eloquently call him. We need to ca…

I find myself in an uncomfortable position to be in.

I apologize if any veteran or anyone in the military or anyone else was hurt or insulted by my letter comparing unborn babies with casualties of World War II, “We should have an extended break from regular letter writer,” Maryland Independent, Nov. 20. My intention was to compare abortion wi…

I just saw the dress rehearsal for the Port Tobacco Players production of “Elf, the Musical,” and I have to say I was blown away. I had a really good time. And I don’t usually like musicals. And it was just the dress rehearsal.

We the members of the Willing Helpers Society and According To The Word Church, would like to offer our thanks, appreciation and gratitude to the management and staff of the Outback Steak House, Texas Road House, Hancock Family Farms, Weis Market, Chick-fil-A, Sen. Arthur Ellis, Golden Corra…

The purpose of this letter is to notify Charles County residents of the new pro-life organization called Saving Babies. As our name implies, Saving Babies is dedicated to saving the lives of pre-born children and newborns who are the most vulnerable, innocent and defenseless among us. Saving…

Gov. Larry Hogan (R), Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s) and Speaker of the House Del. Adrienne A. Jones (D-Baltimore) will join me, other elected officials and higher education leaders as we formally break ground on the new Academic and Innovati…

This is in response to the Nov. 15 letter to the editor by Richard Navickas titled in part “We need to keep America free….” A very regular contributor to the Maryland Independent, in his most recent offering he has outdone himself. In the course of a couple of hundred words he has somehow ma…

I think Christians, especially those who are members of the 7 million Christians United for Israel, are deeply concerned about the spreading of anti-Israel and anti-semitic behavior by the Democratic Party and its supporters.
