To the Editor:Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. It is generally a personal choice to uphold oneself to consistently moral and ethical standards. In ethics, integrity is regarded by many people as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. Integrity is important for politicians because they are chosen, appointed, or elected to serve society.

Muftic: Freedom of religion; so often misunderstood

Local News - Fri, 05/29/2015 - 10:05am
Recently the Tennessee House of Representatives attempted to pass a law that would have made the Bible the official state book.

DeVos: The immoral grizzly bear

Local News - Fri, 05/29/2015 - 10:05am
Anytime I can weasel the word “turpitude” into a column I congratulate myself. It’s a fun word that allows you to scowl and purse your lips in disapproval as you say it. It means extreme wickedness.Morality changes with each generation despite our thinking that it shouldn’t. We pass laws and opinions that just look silly a hundred years down the road. Wickedness and turpitude, for instance were a lot different then.Parents of teen-age children have a lot bigger things to worry about today than cheek-to-cheek dancing. Not so back in 1914 when Pope Pius X pronounced the tango to the …
