Mr Valley is fine as long as he doesnt spew religious nonsense in his articles. I like to read to be informed..not preached to.

We it not for a rational voice like mine, I'm sure his column would go down hill fast.

Good luck Tim!

I agree, keep the religious freaks out of it!

Who said anything about religion? Are you afraid he worships at the altar of Tiger Woods since he wrote for Golf Lifestyle? You atheists really need to get a life and find something to believe in.

Hey Steevee. Have you ever read an article that Mr. Hunt has written that did not mention his "savior"? Your the one who is getting all riled up. It has nothing to do with Mr. Woods. Peace

Marvie, cite your source for your drive-by attack. 'Your' the one with an axe to grind, so put up or shut up. Let's see some proof that Mr. Hunt beleives in God and tell me again why that's such a bad thing......unless you think he believes in the wrong God......
