'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor

I must take issue with C.S. Pearce's attempt to water down the passages from the New Testament she mentions in her column “Gay marriage” (Dec. 9 and TribLIVE.com). I think when the text says homosexuality is an abomination and a perversion, that is exactly what it means.

Perhaps my unsophisticated mind can't appreciate the nuances that Pearce and other “scholars” so obviously discern. For instance, I actually believe that when God gave Adam his perfect mate in the garden of Eden, God intentionally gave Adam a woman, not a man — and only one woman at that! How could God have gotten things so wrong? Obviously, he didn't.

God created woman for man and gave us the institution of marriage. If Pearce and others want to invent some sort of legal bond to unite homosexual couples, fine — just don't call it marriage. Call it a civil union or whatever, but leave marriage alone. Since such unions are man-made, man can justify them, and man can endorse them with civil ceremonies. Do not ask Bible-believing pastors to endorse this perversion of God's design by legally forcing them to accept a new definition of marriage.
