A Christian Lesson On Gay History

“Just remember about 100 years ago, you had three homosexuals in the world as far as anybody really knew. There was a Canadian named Robert Ross, an Englishman named Oscar Wilde, an American named Walt Whitman. They led the charge in the early 1900’s and wound up in and out of the prison system and in court and so forth ...

Chuck Hagel Grilled On Gay Rights

Clips are via AmericaBLOG where John Aravosis writes: Former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel was asked twice today about gays in the military, and gave answers that sounded somewhat rambling and confused.

Quote Of The Day – Jim Robinson

“Obama and his socialist-fascist regime now wants to take our guns. Like hell you say. America answers by buying guns in record numbers. Americans will never allow themselves to be disarmed. The founding fathers intended American citizens to be armed to defend themselves from just such runaway tyrannical government. America’s response to Obama’s attempted gun grab: FUBO!!
