Letters to the editor

For the Chicago Cubs fans out there

Growing up in Chicago, I have been a Cubs fan my whole life. I do not appreciate Josh Buckman’s commentary insulting the Cubs for being “mediocre” or their fans for being stupid. The Chicago Cubs have the most loyal fan base in major league play. They can fill the stands even when they don’t win. I am proud of the Cubs this season because they went where no one expected them to go. Josh Buckman has probably never stepped foot near Wrigley Field, so he wouldn’t know the true reason why all these people love the Cubs. By the way, as every true Cubs fan would say, “They’ll get them next year!!!”

In “support” of a past letter writer

Thanks to Carrie Stewart for her enlightening letter concerning the Herald’s Hell House ads. After perusing the pages of this paper, I can’t believe how many irresponsible ads the Herald allows. Don’t the editors know that liquor store ads promote alcoholism, fast food restaurant ads promote obesity, and tanning bed ads promote skin cancer? The Herald staff accepts hate money from body piercers and real estate agents? What’s next, Ernie Fletcher ads?

The Herald staff never accepts ad money from movie theaters that show movies like Gigli. In fact, the Herald should suspend all ads so as to not offend anyone. My suggestion is the Herald should charge $5.00 an issue to cover all the lost ad revenue, and Ms. Stewart would be safe in the fact that she would never be offended again by an ADVERTISEMENT! Obviously, Ms. Stewart’s Western degree wasn’t in advertising.

Hell House ad was grossly misunderstood

I am writing in response to a letter printed on Oct. 16 entitled “Hell House Irresponsible.” I couldn’t help but notice the lack of knowledge this person has about what Hell House actually is. The writer claims that the Herald is taking hate money. She also stated, “You contribute to the hatred and fear of this nation.”

By advertising Hell House, the newspaper is neither accepting hate money nor contributing to “the hatred and fear of this nation.” Please take a moment to visit the Victory Hill Ministries Web site (www.victoryhillministries.com). Everyone that works this event is a member or friend of Victory Hills Ministries, which holds this event yearly.

Hell House is a haunted-house style learning experience. It is held by a church and is one of many ways that this church ministers to the lost. The tour shows what this church believes to be major problems in the world today. The tour depicts the real life struggles with drugs, alcohol, abortion and many other controversial topics. This tour also shows the life that can be had with Jesus Christ.

In short, Hell House seeks only to make the lost aware of the problems of the world today. They also show the need for everyone to have a relationship with our lord and savior Jesus Christ. By running the Hell House ad, you contribute to the love and care of this nation.

What was the author’s intent?

Maybe it’s because I am new to the Bowling Green area, but I cannot understand Carrie Stewart’s letter to the editor in Thursday’s (Oct. 16) issue. In one hand, I have the “Hell House VI” ad and in the other is the Herald. As I read back and forth, I do not see how this equates to “hate money.”

I’ve visited the Victory Hill Ministries Web site. I thought I would find the Web site of a white supremacist group. But it appears to be an evangelical organization.

Does Victory Hill Ministries have some untold history of “hate?” Is it a “hate” organization disguised as a Christian group? Or is it just Carrie’s personal experience?
