Letter: Wadena should witness for all faiths
In the Pioneer Journal article on Zeus it was fascinating to see him referred to as an actual deputy for the Wadena County Sheriff's Office. It was also interesting that he had been named after one of the most powerful gods in human history. This can be mentioned because god has become...

Letter: greatest destroyer of love is abortion
We are approaching the infamous anniversary of Roe vs. Wade decision of the Supreme Court in 1973. I will spare the reader any statistics because a person can Google them and see the truth. I would like to repeat what Mother Theresa said in 1994 in front of 3,000 people at a national...

We reap what we sow
A new year and taxpayers' money is still going to the big money making abortion business of Planned Parenthood. If PP took care of women's health without killing babies, they'd be ok. We all started as babies with God giving us the right to life. God did not give a woman the right...

Don't publish murderers' names I am requesting that the Wadena Pioneer Journal (and the entire Forum system) adopt a strict, new policy when reporting on gun violence. There is a developing attitude among legacy media that the names of mass murderers should never be published.
