Rule Britannia

Whether you think the United Kingdom exiting the European Union is cause for alarm or celebration, you have to concede this: Britons engaged in an open, lively and mostly peaceful debate, they turned out in droves, they cast their votes freely and fairly and, by so doing, expressed their will and determined their future. Thats called democracy. Is there a preferable alternative? 2016-06-29T09:25:00-04:00 2016-06-30T02:55:36Z Cliff May

Renouncing ‘Christian’ Homo-hatred

17 min 48 sec ago
Im quite aware that we will be branded haters and bigots if we simply teach that marriage is the union of one man and one woman or if we believe that kids deserve a mom and a dad.
