They say your freedom stops at my nose. I think that’s pretty reasonable. I’ve never thought rights for any group that can be distinguished whether by sex or sexual orientation, faith or skin color should oblige a private person in their home to be tolerant or decent. They have every right to be a bigot…… Continue reading Religious Freedom
I’ve been writing this blog for almost seven months. A very few people have made comments, and I thank you for them!
