TownHall Latest columns - 39 min 33 sec ago

Thats called democracy. Is there a preferable alternative? 2016-06-29T09:25:00-04:00 2016-06-29T15:35:19Z Cliff May

TownHall Latest columns - 39 min 33 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. And I know only too well that if we hold to historic Judeo-Christian sexual morals, we will be vilified in the ugliest imaginable terms. 2016-06-29T00:01:00-04:00 2016-06-29T15:35:19Z Michael Brown
