'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.

Re. Amesh A. Adalja's letter “God, gays & the Constitution” (April 11): We all know people have their own “opinions” about these topics. Mr. Adalja writes of the Constitution, not the Bible, being the law of the land. What? America was founded on the principles and laws of God. Let me quote the word of God: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance. Psalms 33:12, 18.

We ignore God and his commandants at our peril. Families, institutions and whole cultures crumble when they ignore God. All of our problems are rooted in our choice to ignore God and his laws. Ponder this quote from the French philosopher Albert Camus: “I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.”

People will always disagree about current topics, but Adalja's statement that we don't live in a theocracy — where the word of God is law — is just plain ignorance. Read the Bible and make your choices: “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7) and “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not ... the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

We will be judged by God for the choices we make when we pass from this life. Only God has the power and right to judge. He looks at our heart.
