The two highest profile pitchmen for Question 6, Rev. Donte Hickman Sr. and Rev. Delman Coates, who in my opinion are not worthy of the title "Reverend," gave this reason for their support: "Let the church be the church, the state be the state, and God be the judge" ("Voices for marriage freedom," Nov. 11). This is nothing more than the blind leading the blind with both falling into the ditch. We have a very important warning about ministers who come in sheep's clothing. Inwardly, they are ferocious wolves who can be identified by their fruit.

Domestic violence is an issue that has been on the minds of many people in recent days, prompted by the horrifying abuse committed by Ray Rice against his now-wife. His status as a professional football player, coupled with the fact that the attack was captured on video and has been seen by millions, has helped to shine a bright light on this often-neglected yet serious societal problem. Lesser known but not less tragic was the murder of Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, mother to two young boys, by her estranged husband exactly two years ago today in front of their Baltimore County home.

It was said of Al Smith, a Roman Catholic, that if he won the 1928 presidential election he would take orders from the Vatican and not uphold the Constitution. John F. Kennedy famously confronted that anti-Catholic prejudice in a 1960 speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association. Kennedy said in part, "I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute; where no Catholic prelate would tell the president -- should he be Catholic -- how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote...

The Rev. Calvin Keene saw a problem. The 55-year-old pastor of Memorial Baptist Church noticed that liquor stores were all too common in his Oliver neighborhood. He saw that all too often, those liquor stores, or "cut-rates," attracted crime almost magnetically to the street corners that they inhabited. He saw that while there were multiple cut-rate establishments in Oliver, there wasn't a single grocery store. So he and fellow ministers and community leaders from Baltimoreans United for Leadership Development bought a liquor store and its liquor license.

Absent from U.S. media encomia for recently deceased former Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze is any mention of the historic deal he reached with his U.S. counterpart James Baker in 1990 ensuring that the Soviet empire would collapse "with a whimper, not a bang" (Mr. Baker's words). Mr. Baker keeps repeating that the Cold War "could not have ended peacefully without Shevardnadze. " But he and others are silent on the quid pro quo . The quid was Moscow's agreement to swallow the bitter pill of a reunited Germany in NATO; the quo was a U.S. promise not to "leapfrog" NATO over Germany farther East.

Pop-culture references are not new to sermons, but a high-profile Baltimore pastor is making national headlines for quoting a popular Chris Brown song. Recently, the Rev. Jamal Bryant of the Empowerment Temple was in the middle of an impassioned sermon titled “I'm My Enemies' Worst Nightmare.” To punctuate a point about men needing to recognize the good women in their lives (and not “run off with a side chick,” as Bryant also said), he surprised the congregation by quoting the chorus of Brown's current hit, “Loyal.” “God help me. Old saints, y'all forgive me, but I got to tell you: These hoes ain't loyal!

"For eight years, they have stood vigil as a great general fought the greatest battle of his life," Cardin said in a statement.
