    ERICKSON: Failures of responsibility

    Two years ago, then 15-year-old Anthony Stokes needed a heart transplant. He would die without one. No one questioned that. But Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta determined Anthony Stokes did not qualify.


    ERICKSON: The Greatest Event in History

    Today, about 2,000 years ago, a man named Jesus was nailed to a cross and died. Or rather, that sentence should read “people in Jerusalem nailed a man named Jesus to a cross from which Jesus’ body hung till he died.” It was not a passive act. It was a very active act on the ...


    ERICKSON: Why Bowe Bergdahl matters

    President Barack Obama traded five Taliban soldiers for Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl had been stationed in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban. Despite State Department assertions to the contrary, we now know that at least one of the Taliban soldiers exchanged for Bergdahl returned to fighting the United...


    ERICKSON: The other side of It

    Macon County’s entire school system, kindergarten to 12th grade, is failing. Taliaferro County is another one. Taliaferro, I’m told, had been in a combined school district with Greene County. When its students were not graduating high school, it pulled out of the consolidated district...


    ERICKSON: Forcing values - real life examples

    In Oregon, Aaron and Melissa Klein and their five children are losing their home due to bankruptcy. Their business, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, is going under.


    ERICKSON: It is a tax

    It appears the Religious Freedom Restoration Act will pass in both the state House and state Senate. Gov. Deal is now committed to signing it into law. So I will not harass readers or David Cooke with more on the subject. Lest anyone think otherwise, I do think David Cooke is a great district attorney...


    ERICKSON: God at work

    Our district attorney, David Cooke, penned an op-ed in this paper in opposition to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). In part, he suggested that child abusers could hide behind RFRA to continue abusing children. In more than 20 years of RFRA being the law in 19 states and the federal ...
