Omdahl: Education reform opposition involves strange bedfellows

Omdahl: Churches not ready for loving one another
In case you haven’t noticed, the Founding Fathers created a governmental system that is not supposed to work until we can mobilize massive agreement. With separation of powers, we have had modest gridlock for two centuries so it was inevitable that we would end up some day with...

Omdahl: Christians shouldn't depend on the government

Committee gets simple solution for terrorism
