12/24 Letter to the editor

Regarding Ryn Gargulinski’s column of Dec. 17 (“Christmas spirit deserves revival”): This has to be the sickest, most demented thing I have ever read in the Quay County Sun.

What about that Thief on the Cross

Leonard Laurialt Much has been made of Jesus’ statement to the thief on the cross given in Luke 23: 32-43 (read that, as well as every other scripture when it is cited).
