  • COLUMN: Editorial presents falsehoods

    By MARK NEWLIN
    Guest Columnist

    I read the Our View editorial on the Iraq war and how it didn’t reflect our values. What disturbs me so much is the use of lies, misinformation and distortion to make our country look bad despite our efforts to do the right thing. I should put my point of view first so people know what perspective I take. I think we should bring our troops home and make our allies develop their militaries so they are capable of defending themselves. Now to look at the falsehoods presented in the editorial.

  • COLUMN: In defense of state role

    By GREG ZOELLER
    Indiana Attorney General

    The majority of states, including Indiana, provide a marriage license only to a man and woman, while nine states also allow same-sex couples to receive licenses to marry.
