I write this letter in response to an article in your paper entitled "Episcopal Church is right to recognize gay unions." It saddens me to read once again of supposed "Christians" approving of what the Bible clearly says is wrong. "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God." Corinthians 6:9-11.
Kershaw County Council Chairman Gene Wise is right in recommending to council members that they thoroughly vet people before placing them on the board of directors of KershawHealth. In the past, recommendations have primarily been rubber-stamped by the council; that doesn't mean highly qualified people weren't placed on the board, because there have been. Many county citizens have served faithfully and skillfully as the local hospital has navigated its way through a rapidly changing marketplace. But having competent board members is more necessary now than ever before because of a variety of changing federal mandates as well as ...

There are many things we like about Gov. Nikki Haley, chief among them being her determined focus on economic development. Haley has been a tireless campaigner for South Carolina when it comes to attracting business to the Palmetto State, and it's paid off in lots of jobs and significant tax revenue. We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.
