PROVIDING CONTEXT: Some critics of my Jan. 7 letter concerning the God of the Bible and evil claimed my Bible quotes showing where the biblical God takes responsibility for evil were taken out of context. I found the following definition of "taken out of context" on the Internet: "To take something out of context is to ignore the overall meaning of an utterance in order to assign undue importance or meaning to a part of it." For example. Joe says, "I think Fred is not a man to trifle with." The CNN anchorman gleefully reports it as, "Joe says Fred is not a man." That is taking Joe's words out of context. I challenge those critics to show how I took those five Bible quotations out of context. Did I distort the message? What did the message then really say? I particularly challenge them to parse Isaiah 45:7, where Yahweh assumes responsibility for all good and all evil.

PROVIDING BALANCE: To offer some balance to the What We Pay series, when will The Post-Crescent run a series on welfare recipients and what we pay them annually?
