Judy Chernak writes, in relation to "pro-life pregnancy resources centers ("Tyranny under the guise of religious freedom," Dec. 15) that she will be more inclined to believe in Catholic University of America President John Garvey's "freedom of religion" when it extends to helping out those truly in need. Guess what, Ms. Chernak, Christian-based pregnancy centers do help those most in need - the helpless unborn child. David Plaut, Reisterstown

Del. A. Wade Kach, who is running for Baltimore County Council, is opposed to the plan to house 50 kids from Central America in Timonium. Where is his Christian compassion? Where is the Christian compassion of the officials and residents of Baltimore City, Carroll County, etc.? Oh, the hate on their faces and their messages. Mr. Kach says it's a "federal problem. " Well, the Senate passed an immigration bill and the House has not. A federal problem for sure? A Republican problem!

As Orioles rookie first baseman Christian Walker strove this season to develop as a power hitter and solidify his future at first base, a position where power is paramount, he never strayed from the hitting approach that had earned him acclaim. Hitters desperate for power can end up getting pull-happy and sacrifice the bat-to-ball skills that had carried them so far, and Walker, in search of over-the-fence power, continued to focus his approach on hitting up the middle of the field.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Christian and Vodou leaders put aside their differences for a moment Friday, joining hands under a canopy of tropical trees as some earthquake survivors on crutches and in wheelchairs mourned the more than 200,000 Haitians killed by an earthquake one month ago. The catastrophe has driven a wedge between Haiti's religions as Christian groups make inroads among shaken Vodou followers - some drawn by the steady flow of aid through evangelical...

I heard an opponent of gay marriage say that they have to live by Christian morals. As a Christian, I am appalled by that statement. One's focus as a Christian is to be on Christ himself, not on us and a set of laws to live by. Christ died to free us from the law, that is to say, morals. All a set of morals do, whether Christian or not, is to keep us looking at ourselves and constantly judging others for our failures. Jesus Christ died for all His children no matter their, race, gender or sexual orientation.

I was born a Democrat but I am a card carrying Republican by choice. I was born Jewish, but am a Jew by choice. And I cannot support our president, not because he is a Democrat but because of what he is doing to our country. But neither can I support the majority of Republican candidates because they are saying nothing about what they would do for our country. They have, especially Mr. Santorum, brought religion into a place it does not belong. I do not care if Mr. Santorum feels he is a better Christian than the president; the question is whether he is a better man and would he make a better president.

Watching Rick Santorum rise in the polls by positioning himself as the real Christian presidential candidate is like watching the sequel of a horror movie - one I literally lived through in the 1980s while growing up in Pakistan. There, another religious zealot, Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, played the lead role of the real Muslim. The plot went like this: The clerics called for candidates with "true" Muslim values, the masses demanded a "Muslim candidate for a Muslim state," the leaders proved their "Muslimness" by quoting scripture and calling others lesser Muslims, and the candidate who was able to appease the clergy privately and please the masses publicly held on to power.

As a Jewish person, I have been participating in activities and services at St. Timothy's Church of Baltimore County for the past six years.  I was considering conversion to the Christian faith and joining the Episcopal Church, but with what has happened, forget it! ("St Timothy's congregants vote to become Catholic," Feb. 27.) It is shameful that the bishop has told St. Timothy's parishioners, who voted in good faith to join the Catholic church as part of the Ordinariate, that they would have to find a new place to worship by Easter.

First baseman Christian Walker was called up to a division-winning team in September to help give some players a break in the final 10 days of the season. Walker, 23, immediately was inserted into the Orioles' lineup Wednesday night. He struck out in his first at-bat and hit a flyout in his second. But in his third trip to the plate, in the seventh inning against Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ, Walker laced a double down the left-field line for his first major league hit. “It was exciting, you know.

Roughly two weeks ago, first baseman Christian Walker was at Camden Yards picking up his Brooks Robinson Minor League Player of the Year Award. On Wednesday, he was in the Orioles' starting lineup, batting seventh and playing first base in his major league debut. “I'm just really excited. I'm really happy to be here, and I'm glad they decided I was going to come up,” Walker said. “I'm looking forward to anything that lies ahead in the next few weeks.” Walker, 23, hit .288 with a .357 on-base percentage, a .489 slugging percentage, 26 homers and 96 RBIs in 139 games at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this year.

It took 48 hours, but the disciplinary sanctions the Orioles were hoping for were passed down by Major League Baseball on Wednesday. Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph's head in the sixth inning Monday. “Like I said the time, I had a lot of confidence MLB would look at it and do what needs to be done,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “I have a lot of confidence that when something like that happens, and emotions of players get in the way of good decisions, that the league office will remind them that certain things aren't tolerated.” After Stroman's 92-mph fastball sailed past Joseph's head, the rookie right-hander and both dugouts were warned by home plate umpire Ted Barrett.

The Orioles didn't initially expect to add one of their top position player prospects, first baseman Christian Walker, to their expanded roster this month. But with American League East wrapped up -- and 11 games remaining in the regular season -- the Orioles are expected to purchase Walker's contract from Triple-A Norfolk, according to a club source. Walker has been working out in Sarasota, Fla., as part of a taxi squad the Orioles could pluck from in case they needed an extra player.

Ubaldo Jimenez, who has made just two relief appearances since being moved to the bullpen nearly a month ago, will receive at least one more start before the regular season ends. The right-hander will start Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Orioles manager Buck Showalter selected Jimenez over left-handed relievers T.J. McFarland and Joe Saunders. “We feel like it disrupts our bullpen the least; we think that he's the most equipped lengthwise,” Showalter said. “We feel like he's better equipped to pitch that part than say behind Mac or Joe. Also, we think he's our best option to win the game.

The Orioles announced their organizational minor league player and pitcher of the year award winners Thursday. And while neither player started the season among the team's top 10 prospects, both worked their way to the doorstep of the major leagues with breakout years. First baseman Christian Walker was named the team's Brooks Robinson Player of the Year, while right-hander Tyler Wilson is the Jim Palmer Pitcher of the Year recipient. Walker, the Orioles' fourth-round selection from the University of South Carolina in 2012, hit .288/.357/.489 with 26 home runs and 96 RBIs in 139 games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season.

The Orioles, who over the last few years have proven that they don't like to be unprepared, will hold a taxi-squad-type camp at their complex in Sarasota, Fla., starting Saturday. The whole point is for players on the roster bubble -- guys who were on the fringes of being September call-ups but weren't initially added to the team -- to stay active in case they are needed this month. Knowing the way the Orioles have done things in the past few seasons, it would be a surprise if at least one wasn't recalled at some point before the regular season ends.
